Sailor Eric Dahlkamp is working on a new boatbuilding project. This means he may soon have another boat to try out in a future Texas 200 sailing event.
This one is a small camp-cruising sailboat. Eric explains the thoughts behind this one, along with a few pics, just below.
Included are a couple concept renderings to help us see his vision for this small craft. Pretty neat.
Once again, we are indebted to him for sharing this project with us!

I have attached a photo of my wife and I sailing the XCR on a recent camping cruise on Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park. Chris did most of the construction and I’m making some mods and finishing up the details.” (more…)
