I was reading the Wooden Boat Magazine and came across a series about how to build a 15’ sail and row boat called the Phoenix 3. It is an Australian design by Ross Lillistone. I liked the look of the boat, the series was written in a way that drew me in and the skill required didn’t seem far removed from the Chesapeake Light Craft Chester Yawl I had built a year or two ago. I sent for the plans, I was hooked.
The attached photos show the progress to date. I hope to have it ready for the spring (I have already built the spars). Then decision time, something has to go.
