If Sailnet is dead, why is this here?

So it''s still here huh? I guess I''ll have to check in now and again. I thought this board would be dead by now.

Any one else nervous

Sad to say, I''ve seen this pattern played out many times before in the armouring community. The behavior described is "to the letter" what happens to many an armourer''s internet business right...

Well, for whatever it''s worth, I think I have selected a first design. The one I intend to build this summer is the "Breeze Baby" from the svenson''s site.

Has sailing tech changed so much in the last 60 years or were these just crappy boats to begin with?

On the svensons page, would anyone care to express opinions on the Blue Moon, Gypsy, and Star-lite designs... with a thought to possibly using the Blue Moon as a starter boat since it''s smaller and...

OK, yeah, it''s the svensons site that I''ve been to before.

Jeff,

Thanks for the leads on boat designs. I shall have to look through them as time permits and when I select one, I''ll likely ask for opinions on it.

If the boat I choose is small enough...

Perhaps I''ve not been looking in the right place... but what I''ve found so far is that I can get decent quality exterior grade plywood 4''x 8'' 1/4 inch thickness for about $10 a sheet.

So far,...

Thanks for the advice windship... but in my case the building is more important than the sailing. I''m weird that way.

Having made fairly extensive use of sheet metal for other things, I can say that the cost and weight issues would be insignificant. However, if the protection offered would be so slight, seems like...

Well, if the Thunderbird can get by with 1/2 inch ply single hull... I could retain the double hull but downgrade to 1/2 inch outer hull and 1/4 inch inner. That would be a 40% reduction in hull...

Jeff, I''ll look at the dix boats shortly...

Wish I could afford the marine grade plywood, but not likely to happen for me.

Now, some thoughts...

Sounds like I could retain my double hull...

That''s what I was attempting to explain. Not a hinged centerboard, but a largish daggerboard with a ballast bullet attached.

No Worries! The "in over my head" comment was more in a rhetorical nature. Of course I''m in over my head, but I don''t really care. Building things is fun!

Best Hull type?

The cape cod catboat looks like a very possible contender as a practical design for what I want.
