Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Hi, Maybe you could use 18 mm strong Pawlownia wood for bow and transom and even seats of the Feather Pram it beats 1/5 Oukume with framing around it by weight. It is also used as core for surfboards and ever since I used it as seats on my first boat I like it because it is easy to work with and to ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Hi, Have a Happy Easter and carry on getting better from your mild pneumonia. It is also very nice to have quiet and isolated days and let work on the boat rest as well. I spend lots of time in the garden and listening to the birds great titmouse are nesting there. Even that the boat is round the co...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogie, The boat looks beautiful and I hold thumbs for the launching. Can you also take a photo of the L brackets towards the rear when installed where You will attach PVC pipes for guiding. I still have to do this on my trailer because my present solution is rather poor. I screwed a flower box wi...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi, I am a bit late with my idea, but Jasons Spanish windlass next to the rear pipe will work and you can arrest it with a little round hook at the end of the wooden piece and just push the hook against the vertical rail. But I also agree with Tony just splash and see what you still have to do. Ther...

Re: Beer barrel staves

Hi,
I have learned again a lot by reading this post and I really love the birds houses of Tony. I wonder if one can still buy new hand drills like I have seen in the video.

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogey, Your main sheet will have its block in the cockpit near the transom like George, Salvatore and Bondo have it on their AD s. I just checked the push pits and found I bought them as a Christmas present for myself on December 3 rd 2017 and had it cheap in my memory. I bought them from the wel...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogey, Here is the promised picture and you might use something like this to attach the main sheet block Tony was asking for. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87433/20200125_102634.jpg And lots of luck with finishing the last bits so we can sail against each other in Spring you in the U...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi Bogie, I started building my own push pits until I found these from an Italian manufacturer. I strongly advise you to give your rails a forward support ( = make it triangular ) which is needed because of peoples weight against the sides when sitting on the benches. Your pipe might bend exactly wh...
