02 Fireball

During the winter of 1973-74, I built a Fireball. The building place was on the second floor (!) in my parent’s house. The first picture shows the (almost) finished boat.

Then it’s me and my oldest sister on the beach after a sail. This boat was a dream to sail. Fast, yet stable. I was mostly crewing with a friend as helmsman. I sometimes also sailed it alone (with a long extension of the tiller, you can stand in the trapeze and steer… with the spinnaker up it was a bit tricky though…)

The third picture shows the final stage of the boat (also my first car is shown…)
