Jacques Molinari’s TheEdge Mouseboat is looking very smart

The carvel-built Mouseboat built to the free TheEdge plans that Jacques Molinari is building in Vietnam continues to make progress. He’s now reached the point where he’s making sails and launch day is approaching.

I’ve recentlyseen some film of a plywood-built boat to the same plans sailing, and I have to say it seems to perform pretty well. Good luck, take care and remember this is really a pond skimmer Jacques!

Jacques Molinari has sent in some more photos of his impressive Mouseboat, including a strengthened and raised mast step, and a self-bailing cockpit – he says he expects rough water in Nha Trang Bay.
