I've been wanting to combine a few favorite hobbies, woodworking and physics, and dive head first into a project I know nothing about - sailboats. I have been thinking about dusting off the old RC gear and configuring it for small-scale sailing for a long time, so I thought I'd build a boat over the winter. There's something unbelievably rewarding about building something like this from scratch, even more so if you tackle something that you know has a significant probability of failure . This is definitely a boat that is much better built than bought... IF IT WORKS.
