FRIJE FROSK

Frije Frosk is a Francois Vivier Design, type Meaban.

I built her in the past three years in my garage.

She is strip planked mahogany with Iroko decks, the bulkheads are build according to the egg box principle.

A lot of brightwork, all epoxy and 2K UV transparent finishing.

Gaff rigged with a small gennaker.

Lead ballast and steel centreboard, draft only 1.5 ft. with legs to support her when the tide is low.

Spars made of Douglas fir, hollow.

She has 4 berths, a small 5HP Honda outboard, nicely hidden in the hull.

Small kitchen, with basin and a alcohol stove.

She sails like a charm, and fast (6.5 Kn).

Great fun to build and sail!
