I built the Star Class 3909 in western red cedar from the ISCYRA plans at 22'8".

I fiberglassed it before it every hielt the water.

It was a fairly successful racing boat even though I used the keel from Star Class 375 which was not as smooth as the newer keels.

It was very fast up wind but slow down wind even though I made it as flat as the tolerances would allow.

I later owned the 1936 International One-Design Class 33' 5" wooden racing sloop and refurbished her extensively.

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
