Video Release: Making our Daggerboards: Part 1

It's raining all week, so we moved to our garage to build the two daggerboards for S/V Lynx. Captain Blood, Admiral Marianne, and our XO, Brian, will need these for our performance/cruising catamaran as we sail this boat around the world, that is, as soon as we finish building this Schionning Designs DIY kit sailboat!

Video Release: Cradles and Rain Catchment Design
With us wanting to get to flipping the two canoes, we had to do some more work on the cradles that will hold them. Unfortunately, a big storm got in the way of our Coppercoat plans, so we spent some time designing a new rain catchment system for S/V Lynx.
