Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Agreed Jaysen.

With Skinnydip stored outdoors on her trailer, and with 6" of rain this past week, I've not been able to install her eight new battery cells. :cry:

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Thanks Jaysen, Jeff, cape man and Tom. :D Life's been getting in the way of boat building the past week or so, but today I managed to grab a few hours to get back to Skinnydip. I'm about to swap out the eight new 3.2V 100 Ah lithium cells for the destroyed ones, but first I needed to remove the rest...

Re: C17 in New Zealand.

I will be building the cabin like the CX19, but with a bit (maybe 100mm) more height under (compensating for the smaller hull side) to get the bare minimum sitting headroom under. Depending on how it looks on the boat it may be more slouching headroom. :P. I will spend very little time in the cabin...

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Thanks Lee, pee wee, Jeff, and Tom. We had a great 53rd. :D Today a very welcome package arrived - eight Chinese Aviation Lithium Battery (CALB) 3.2V 100 Ah battery cells, to replace the eight damaged cells needing replacement in Skinnydip's 48V 100 Ah battery bank. CALB stopped producing these CA10...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Been off the air for a few days Jaysen, so missed your attempted shortcut to CLOOFdom. Sounds as though it went as well as could be expected. So now, JUST GET WELL.

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

Thanks Barra Man, jonnymac, Jeff and Tom. :D The predominant channel over the past twenty years has been around the edge. It always has challenging shallows, but at least you know where the channel is by referencing the shoreline. The trick is to wait for a big enough tide in daylight to get over th...
