When the little boat was sailing it was a very happy boat. Trouble was Little Whee did not sail as often as it would have liked. And so the adventures begin. Little Whee was a real, one of a kind, 16 foot sailboat. In many ways it was a rather basic boat built mostly from the wood of a fir tree with fir frames and marine grade plywood. The spars(mast and boom) were of sitka spruce. The Dacron sails were custom cut and sewn by a sail-maker. Though in many ways a rather simple boat, there is nothing simple when it comes to the building of a boat. It was challenging and fun to do. And the best part of it all was the sailing.
