it closed a year and a half ago at 12% of target funding. which doesnt look optimistic. cool idea though.

Honestly, you can get an existing 35 foot boat for way cheaper than the $50k those kits are supposed to start at. That design also looks like while it might be a lot of space, it'd be garbage for actually sailing it anywhere. There's no point in slapping some sails on a box just to call it a sailboat.

If you're not strictly looking for something that moves under its own power, hell, I've seen plenty of 30'+ powerboats going for free. There are lots of old used boats around in certain waterfront areas, and they're generally super cheap.

It appears the recent upgrade broke the registration page, so if you know anyone trying to register an account that can't, that's why. I'm working on a fix.
