This blog will take you along the different steps of building a 23 foot dropkeel sailboat. The DIDI 23 is one of the available designs for the amateur builder designed by Dudley Dix. The boat is built as a radius chine trailer sailer from plywood with bulb dropkeel.
I am 64, married, have two adult children and working as engineer for rf techniques at a physical research centre of the Helmholtz Association. I live close to the Elbe river in a suburb of Hamburg, Germany.

Sailing on the Elbe in Light Winds
We tacked against the ebb current at 2 Beaufort and had to start the engine from time to time in order not to lose too much height.
That's really nice post. I appreciate your skills. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing, super helpful!ReplyDelete
I'm considering to build the didi 23 as well and have the same thought that 1.30 headroom might be a bit too little.
How do you feel now about your decision to increase it by quite a bit? Would you do it again or was it too much/too little?
I feel very well with the decision. 1.65 m headroom at the companionway is sufficient for me. But I am just 1.73 m tall.Delete
More headroom would make the ship to bulky I assume.
