Ulrich Regelsberger writes, "As a passionate sailor since my children days on the Mediterranean coast of northern Tunisia, I decided to build my own boat." Encouraged by Ted Okie's article, "The Sloops of Haiti's North Coast" (WB #189, page 50), in which "those [Haitian] boatbuilders work with little resources in any sense of the word," Ulrich began to choose timber from local sources. When we last heard from him, he had completed planking the hull and was on to the deck and house. He plans to use the boat on the small lakes in the Tyrol.
