A Bigger hull for the OZ Racer
- 12ft (3.2m)
More Room for 2 people
Stretching the boat to 12ft allows two people to sit side by side as in the illustration. So it would be simple to share the sailing responsibility. One with the rudder and one with the mainsheet. Much better for sharing and learning.
The nice point about the PDGoose is that it uses ALL the bits the same as the OZ Racer – so rudder, tiller, centreboard, mast, the same two sail options. So if you have an OZ ... you can build a OZ PDGoose hull and go sailing with friends
The 12 footer will be able to carry quite a lot of weight and might make a good boat for events like the TEXAS200 event, though a lot of preparation and knowledge about the boat is necessary for tough events of this type. We recommend the lug sail with an extra reef point.
The PD Goose is the ultimate in cheap, light and easy. It is a boat that a sailor can dominate because it is so small, simple and light. Not to mention easy to store and transport.

Note this is a supplement to the OZ Racer
You must buy the OZ Racer plan as well ($20) as it contains the detailed step by step instructions for the rudder, centreboard, rudderbox, mast, boom and sail.
If you have an OZ Racer plan already you can just buy the OZ PDGoose supplement.
If you have already built an OZ Racer this can be a second hull for your existing parts. AUD
