Melonseed, 2014

2014 Melonseed built by Brush Creek Yachts. It is a beautiful wooden boat that has fiberglass cloth inside and outside. It sails just like a Crawford Melonseed. The sail is on a halyard so it can be raised or lowered on the water. The boat is also designed to take a sliding seat for rowing. It does take slightly longer to set up than a Crawford Melonseed. I like the boat, but I want to trade up to a bigger boat. It is at a lake cottage in Lake of the Woods near Fredericksburg Virginia. I am a teacher from Pennsylvania, with summers off, which I spend at the cottage.
