An international trio of engineers, Dieter Doerr, 25, from Cologne, Robert woods, 25, of Australia and Jacob Butgi, 30 from Yugoslavia, are building a 56 ft. ketch, in the front garden of a house in Melbourne, to sail around the world. Working in their spare time they have completed the steel frame of the hull. They started the job in January, 1964, and hope to have their craft finished by September, 1965, and set sail about November of the same year.
