For those of you who regularly watch our how-to videos, you’ll recognize our Project Boat. Sailrite’s Seaward 24, Desperado, has been the subject of many how-to projects and over the years we’ve spruced her up and outfitted her with a full array of canvas projects. Now, after 4 years of faithful service we’re saying goodbye to our faithful project boat.
Since purchasing our Project Boat in 2009, we have used her as a teaching tool to share a variety of how-to videos from how to change your halyard line to how to make a bimini. Now that Project Boat is fully outfitted, we’re ready to start a new adventure. We will be selling our Project Boat and begin working on a new boat to bring you even more great project videos and instructions.
We’re sad to part with our Project Boat, but we’re excited by the possibilities of outfitting new vessels. So as we say goodbye, let’s take a look back at all of the great projects that we accomplished with Project Boat.
