Vol I: Episodes 1 – 5
A DVD by Sandra Sims Running time: approximately 2 hours.
Ten years in the making, The BIG Sailboat Project tracks the gritty effort of two gals as they pursue their dream of building and cruising a 43 foot steel sailboat. Located a 1000 miles from the coast in rural Alberta, Canada, the duo decide on steel as their building material, which they shape into a Bruce Roberts designed 43 MKII Long Keel Cutter.
Volume I contains five episodes covering steel construction from keel to fully enclosed vessel. Each episode is approximately 23 minutes long, and includes documentary footage of hull construction artfully edited and interspersed with incredible 3-D animation illustrating boat building techniques.
