Olivier Faucon started building his boat in Sri Lanka, then shipped it to France, where he has
now finished it. Olivier writes:
I just returned back to Manila 2 days ago, after working this summer on my boat and being able to make a "technical water trial" last week. There is still work to finish (launching and sailing is for next summer) and I was one week short to raise the mast, but I still wanted to see how she floats and check a few things. It was also a big reward to see her floating after so much work! She floats very high on the water, but I guess that's because she is completely empty, and still misses some heavy equipment (outboard engine, mast, sails...).
Everything went well. Daniel Buyle, who's also building a F-32, was there and helped me, and his girlfriend actually took most of the pics.
Thanks and best regards.
