ETIENNE MULLER'S BOAT BUILDING - BUILDING WATERSTRIDER
The design of this boat is based (with kind permission) on the
Chesapeke Light craft WEST RIVER 180.
Essentially the freeboard has been increased.

|I built WaterStrider for
those days when there is not enough wind to go windsurfing, intending
to waft about the bay
in a civilized way. The continuous power from an efficient rig keeps the boat accelerating though, especially on a reach,
and the ride can be extremely wet and quite scary at times.
