This is my next, my fifth and my last sailboat, which I hope to start building in fall of 2016. I have been wanting to build a sailboat for 50 years, since I was ten years old. I like to think of it as The Perfect Sailboat, as designed by Robert H. Perry Yacht Designers Inc. We have chosen Betts Boats, of Anacortes, WA, as the builder. I think of her as the perfect boat because there is not one single thing I would change. I would not make it one inch longer, one inch shorter, one pound heavier. The entire layout is exactly what I want to the fraction of an inch. The boat is perfect.

The final accommodation plan for my new LUCKY GIRL. Bob and I put a lot of time into getting every part of the boat optimized, without adding any more freeboard or length or weight than necessary. I want to be able to use the boat when I am older and a long jump down to the dock when I come in is not what my old knees are looking forward to. So keeping the freeboard as low as possible was a real priority for me.
