I will do exactly that because my sailing is restricted to a few Summer day sails. https://www.vendeeglobe.org/en I think on this link you might have fun. Greetings from ...

Re: CLOSED -- November 2, 2020 @ 9p ET -- Forum/gallery upgrade and migration

Hi Jayson,
Was surprised about the migration to Boat Builder Central but find my way around it, but most I was surprised that you did this and I always thought you built a sailboat and are a sailor like all of us. Well done with this update.
Greetings from Karl

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

Just beautiful, From the side I can see exactly how your temporary frames are mounted and it gives me advise for the MI Bateau Boat plan which I have not completely discarded yet because my six sheets of 4 mm top quality Okoume plywood are waiting in the loft of my house already very long. Build on ...

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

Hi, I love your feather pram already and cannot wait to see progress pictures. I have one question : Will you be using epoxy wood flour glue at the lap connections and where they meet transom and bow only and no epoxy coating on the 4 mm Okoume planks just oil ? It interests me because I built child...

Re: Wood grab bar

Hi Richard, I have seen it before but never so well documented from scratch. You know I build a grab bar for my FS13 which looks ugly as sin. But this post of You made me decide what to do this coming Winter and hopefully I can get near your perfect grab bar. I will give it even a separate name to t...

Re: An All-Season Trailerable Sailboat

As you want a trailerable boat what about this : You look down south for a suitable boat and trailer it to Alaska. Good testing for trailering or am I an idiot and know nothing of the Panamerican Highway except the name and it does not even reach as far as Alaska.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Yes the rudder modification will be a great help as I fiddled on the wabbly water for minutes until I had it hung, now it takes 10 seconds. It is a pity that such small detail is not mentioned on the boat plans and you only find out whilst using the boat. This is a picture of the changed Gudgeon...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

Hi, Today I installed my outboard motor bracket which I bought 4 months ago. It had to swallow my pride to drill 4 holes into my lily white transom which I never wanted to have any holes. But this stainless steel bracket is a big improvement on my self made concoction which was just tied with lines ...
