North of here, in the San Juan Islands, Captain Kruse is making progress on the masts and yards for the schooner Phoenix and you might appreciate an update.

The Phoenix specifications are:

LOA 87', LOD 60'
Beam 17.75'
Draft 9.5'
Displacement 51 tons
Sail area 3,500 sq. ft.

Captain Kruse has more videos of his work and a website he shares with Iris his Bengal cat.

Iris is a very cool kitty!

Another video of assembling a hollow mast (don't know who to credit this to....)
