    Default First look at Junk Rigged Pacific Proa Make O'Break sailing rough, fast and safe!!!

    What a blast, success has a very sweet taste but only once 7 hard years of failure, blood sweat and tears lead up to it.......

    THE VIDEO below shows a flawless boat working hard and well, 3 proa builds with many rigging concepts finally lead to this.

    A long road comes to an end Balkan Shipyards.

    WELL DONE!

    Impressive.

    I'm amused that it has provoked you to post the same video 5 times. You must be over excited.

    Having followed your exploits and efforts for a long time, it is so good to see such a successful outcome. What happens next? How are you planning to enjoy it?

    Nothing works on an old boat, except the skipper.

    Always good to hear from u Mike!!!! This boat although slapped together only as a prototype to test the LaShunk, has turned out to be a good boat that is more then happy to go cruising. So, fiberglass the bottom, cos it's only painted, put on a nicer deck then those shabby planks..... Then October go cruising in Greece for a few weeks........ Finally I have a boat I can trust! It's gonna get used!! Next year, start re rigging Crystal Clear, lifting rudders the works.......
    Take care man.
