Cliff raised the cabin a few inches, uses an aluminum mast, and switched to tiller steering. A nice, trim looking Weekender.
This collection of shots hints at a very nice Weekender. We wish the resolution was a little higher so we could see details, but it's still very nice. We're afraid we lost the e-mail which went with this shot, and the only clue we have is the name on the jpeg: ChangWkndr.jpeg. If the builder sees this, perhaps they could e-mail us again? We would love to give proper credit for a nice looking boat!
Mr. Snow enjoyed building "Annie", and may
start on another Weekender for his grandkids!

Weekenders with no names
These are some older photos which we received years ago and which we have no names for. Too bad, as they're really nice boats!

"Enclosed please find a picture of the Weekender
that I completed in July. The keel was laid on March 21 and the sloop was launched on July 22. I have lived on the Ocean and bay all my life and had been sailing only once years ago. On the maiden voyage my sailing instructor, who was in complete awe of the boat, with 25 years of sailing experience, could not believe how easy she handled and how well she sailed. I have had many hours of enjoyment and many many compliments. Thank you for your service and your fine plans.
We have finished building the Weekender and are pleased with it. Its unusual design attracts a lot of attention and favorable comments at the marina on the lake.

I received your plans in early March and launched the (Weekender) on June 23. Had a very enjoyable summer sailing. We just love the boat and congratulate you on a very fine job."

I want to congratulate you on the beautiful design for your Weekender Sloop. I have been looking for a traditional boat (few and far between) and one I could build since I get almost as much enjoyment in building boats as I do sailing them. Your's fits the bill to a tee.
