Re: My Project Boat

The glass sheets are incredibly strong but they do flex. Once it's all bolted together I will have to see how rigid it feels. I am a little concerned. We will see.

Re: My Project Boat

This is still one of my favorite threads! Glad to see you're still enjoying this boat. It's an inspiring thread, thanks for sharing.

Re: My Project Boat

This thread makes me wish I had done similar when I bought and started to get my new to me boat ready to sail again back in January (2013). My fixes, updates, and early sailing experience in this my freshman year are scattered throughout the site. But just like this thread I am much in the debt of the fine folks here who continue to walk me towards becoming a sailor.

Re: My Project Boat

Thumbs-
Thanks so much for taking us along on your journey. I have read your post from beginning to end and am totally impressed with what you have accomplished. Just acquired a Laguna 22 and beginning to do the work to get her back in the water. I only hope my project turns out as well as yours. Maybe I'll start a thread to show my progress as well.

Re: My Project Boat

I added the tiller and completed the pull-pull setup to raise and lower the rudder so this assembly is now complete and ready for spring. Only 5 months to go!
