I saw your post on Tyvek sails, and immediately thought of the PDRacer (Puddle Duck Racer) – a little sailboat you can build for about $150 with tools most people already have. There’s a ton of info out there, as well as info so you can get involved with a local group of PDRacers – or start your own group. I haven’t built one yet, but can’t wait to try my hand at it.

When I was a young teen, my dad had a 37′ cabin cruiser for a while and I had a dinghy sailboat about this size (plastic). I loved that thing. This brings back fond memories.
