Michael Scott's Mod Hadron Singlehander is Launched
Michael Scott sends along these photos of the launch of a Keith Callaghan designed singlehander, the Hadron, which he spend the winter modifying. Michael picked up a locally built wood Hadron, cut down the freeboard, and got rid of a funky center buoyancy tank which he replaced with a true double bottom. He added a a rig he scammed off a Hoot Dinghy. The final result isn't radical enough to qualify as a Frankenboat but, all in all, a very credible singlehander. I await some more sailing reports when there is some more wind.
Michael has emailed Keith for feedback on his mods but no reply. (I have to say most designers don't like the unwashed fooling around with their creations... unlike me, who always says ... have a go and see if it works!)
The skipper in these photos is Brad Rice. Location is Whidbey Island, Pacific NW.
