"There's only one reason to own a small wooden sailboat-it's fun, pure and simple fun. But, if you're the practical type and need just a little more encouragement, consider this. How about a sailboat that also nearly lifts from the water with the slightest tug on the oars, that handles a few kids for an afternoon of fishing on the pond and that you can cartop, toss in the truck or haul on a small trailer when the day's over? How about a wooden boat that's tough enough to last through years of use, light enough for the kids to pull ashore and sea friendly enough for sailors of all levels? Convinced yet? Well, let's add this-how about all of the above in a boat that you build yourself?"
