Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

its a bummer about your trip.I've read a few blogs about the great loopers and a few take a few years to complete.some just want to get around quickly so they can brag to their friends about it.Me,I'd rather poke around and see all the attactions or see wildlife in this cove or that.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I saw something similar to what you're doing in Woodenboat.a helm seat on one side and a cabinet on the other side that had a removable cushion on top.cabinet held the kitchen box when used or stowed when cushion was used.Pretty simple. :D

Re: Building The Vera Cruise
