Per request

Rick A, here ya go! Three photos of the cabin. The sleeping space is about 7′ long; feet go under the bridge deck.  The rough bare wood on the forward bulkhead are foot rests for leaning over the bulkhead to reach the anchor. The black circle is an airtight bucket lid hatch to a flotation chamber


The boat is packed up, rather haphazardly, with all (I hope) the stuff I need to finish and make the trip. Except clothes. That I will do tonight. Trailer is attached to the car for the first time. Will test tomorrow when we leave for Texas…  🙂

Un Abrazo,

    Bill, I don’t see that your rudder has a stop to keep it from jumping up off the gudgeons. You need to knock up something before TX 200. Good Luck. Alex Scott, Belize

    Hi Bill, I am interested in building the Michalak Mike’s Boat. I would like to ask some questions about your build. Looks like you used exterior plywood? If so is the boat still in good shape after all these years? Also where did you get the sail dimensions are they in the plans?
