Thanks for the help.
I have just paid for the plans for a John Welford "Tread Lightly" and am I excited. I haven't sailed a boat for 40 years and the idea came to me when I stumbled across Bill Sergeant's web site a week ago. He gave me some good advice that is resulting in a change of hobbies a few years before I retire. I am hoping to be in the water for Spring of 2003.
Excellent!!! In my humble opine John Welsford is a premier small boat designer. "Tread Lightly" should just about carry a small tandum set of gel cell batteries to charge the lap top, cell phone, and digi-camera. Look at the size the model airplane guys use to start their bigger engines. Oops, that's another hobbie, we'll try to keep you focused on the boat 'thang'...
Yes, Bill Sergeant is no stranger to both buidling AND adventuring in small boats. His MICRO is all time!
Keep us informed on your building progress. Take lots of pictures. We would be happy to do a photo montoge on your project here at SBF or put up a pic or two on the SBF Forum as "Tread Lightly" takes shape... Oh, and if you need some information/opinion on a a way to do a construction detail, please post on the forum--we'll get an answer.
