Sukha Build – Day 11

This is a test fitting on the sidewalk, a great way to get a sense of how we will fit inside.

The slope of the front deck.
Lots of room for feet and centerboard trunk. The cabin runs from the ruler to the large center frame.
Oops. In the bright light, I couldn’t really see the phone screen. I meant to include the bow.

Reminder: Guiclémanac’h is the name of the design.  Sukha is the name of this particular boat.  Sukha is easier/possible to say, so I’ll mostly write Sukha.

The original plans call for the boat to be 4.5 meters.  Yann Quenet, the designer, also drew up a set with a total length of 5 meters, which is what I am building.  5 meters is 16.4 feet. Follow the YANN link to see the plans page.  Reminder, the plan details assume you are a professional builder on this design so no detail is given on things like hatches, windows and joinery.

The first build was done by Alexandre Badri.  Thanks to Bateaux (check this link for a story about this boat) for the use of their images.  I’ll always try to link to their article. Let’s give them some traffic as a thank you.  And Alexandre, wow, you do nice work!
