Next to building a boat I want to keep in good shape. As a 57 year old Dutchman I love skating (on ice) and cycling, so that is what I do, next to driving a car, sitting behind a desk and making phonecalls to the Dutch Tax Authoroties. You have to make a living, don't you?.
this blog is made to show you my attempt to build a plywood sailingboat, the Goat Island Skiff. Designed in Australia by Michael Storer, I choose this design because of the beauty, but also because of the elegant construction (which is is supposed to be a speciality of the Australians, if I can believe the websites).
