I’m currently adding a new tool on each sailboat project page: a diagram that can give a first glance indication of where the boat is placed in terms of : budget required, ease of build, performances , offshore capabilities, cruise comfort ; the values shown on diagrams are referred to my project range , they’re not absolute values.
let’s take a look these diagrams for two boats somehow on the opposite side of the range: Idea 19 and Petrel 28
IDEA19: the diagram says this project requires a low-average budget, has good performances, poor comfort while cruising, it’s in the medium range of building complexity, and features medium offshore capabilities
PETREL 28: the diagram says this project requires a quite high budget , has average performances, very good comfort level while cruising, it’s in the medium range of building complexity, and features good offshore capabilities
I hope this new tools will be useful to help choosing the right project to suit your needs and pocket.
Fair wind !!!
