$100K for something like that actually sounds pretty cheap, considering how good the finished product actually has to be.

Thats what other people told him. He built one before this and the customer he built it for ended up selling it before it was even completed because some British million and real estate mogul offered him a price he could not refuse. So now this one was being built for the same customer again.

Here's a video of the launching. She still does not have her mass and riggings yet. You might to do your ears justice and mute the audio, lol

That looks pretty cool man, nice job!

Are the center bits of plywood routed freehand? They don't look to be the same shape on both sides of the board...

Also - rope? Why rope to fasten things instead of modern fasteners?

yeah
freehand with a jigsaw, close enough for goverment work
when I get a planer to fix the daggerboard, im gonna clean them up too

rope is a good fastener, its ability to stretch and give reduced the shock loads on the joint. Its a good way to help a small boat stay stable in surf. But it reduces the top safe speed.

Don't test this in deep water - I have a feeling this won't end well.
