A Polish couple built themselves a beautiful sailboat in their backyard. It took them five years. This remarkable 13-minute video shows how they did it and how the boat performed after launch.
The yacht was mainly built by the husband and wife, with help from relatives and friends. In all, they only spent $30,000 on materials to build a 38-foot sloop with a self-tacking jib that they designed themselves.
Using mostly wood and epoxy to make the laminated frames for the strip-planked hull, and welding the stainless steel themselves, they constructed what can only be described as a work of art.
