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!
Gaff rigged, jib, storm jib, gennaker
