The boat is aptly named due to the fact that it only goes 3-4 miles per hour at a pedaling rate of 50rpm. 91-year-old naval architect Phil Thiel, born in Brooklyn, now in Seattle has created human-powered boats since his teenage years. Sailors tend to want headroom, as it keeps from being bashed about in rough seas and saves one from an aching back.
To Daniel, I love pedal boating because it is generally easier, safer and softer on the body than walking the same distance. Wow, I admire him because in his early teenage years he created this human-powered boat through pedaling. I would probably make it pop up like earlier mentioned (either light weight materials in the pop up or heavy canvas), and might steal the idea of an extra solar panel or two and an electric motor (at least for use in slightly faster water, as most American waters get seasonally quick). I should have stopped to take pictures for this forum, and thought of doing so, but time constraints pushed me on.
One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing. I have been looking at building a boat for a bit now, I am looking at the Vagabond 20' or 23' as a trailer sailor, large enough for a weekend sail with the kids and small enough to haul.

Location: New Brunswick, Canada I really appreciate the input from everyone, it is reassuring that a boat build is in my future and to have the many folks here to pick their brains. I am relatively new to the entire nautical lifestyle, enjoyed a few boats in my youth, and enjoyed learning to sail and am so excited to get a build going!
I hate to be the devil's advocate here, but building a boat is a big commitment in terms of time, money and effort.
We have been sailing as the crew on the Allyance,(brother-in-law's) a 27ft Hunter, for a few summers now, and both my wife and I love it. I have the full support of my wife on the build (as long as the other regular house maintenace doesn't go slack LOL). I really liked a lot of the reasons behind the CLC Pocketship as detailed in the Woodenboat article and on the CLC website. I am now on my THIRD build and i know it sounds absolutely CRAZY that i started another small build in the middle of my big build, but what i learned this time around will save me MANY hours of time further down the line.
The learning curve is endless and i can now absolutely prove it - that by building a small dinghy first, you do save time and money. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
This boat is not that efficient today but this is a great creation or invention history for me.
