Fikk tegninger til Frej i slutten av oktober og begynner å nærme meg ferdig. Med andre ord har jeg brukt 180 dager og ikke 150 timer.

Min Frej er 4,29 m (14,1 ft) og er bygget i furu. På dekk og innvendig er det brukt 130 grams duk. På skroget, utvendig, er det brukt 200 grams duk. Vekta er i skrivende stund på 16,1 kg inkludert luker, men eksklusiv fremre skott, sete, dekksutrustning og lakk. Antar totalvekt blir 17,5 – 18 kg.
