Welcome to the new blog, for those of you that came over from the Alberg 35 blog, this may be a disappointment.  Going forward I plan on doing smaller projects (ie. smaller boats).  I've realized along the way that I have lots of friends with really nice big boats that I still get to sail on but don't have to own (I did the Bermuda race in June on a Swan 60 as example) I'm just ready for a change.  Since selling Magic, I have been working like a dog to get my new shop up and running before embarking on a new small boat project.

Well, I haven't finished the shop but a boat followed me home from the interwebs in the form of a 'free sailboat' ad on craigslist and I am never in a position to say no to a free boat.  I have been around the block a time or two and realize that a free boat is anything but free, but I am a sucker for forlorn floaty objects especially when people threaten to use them as planters. Fortunately it's small; a 1977 14 foot Force 5.

Force 5, a fun little one design. Picture credit from website.  The one I found on craigslist would probably do poorly if placed in that photo right now.
