Re: New Front Hatch frames

Looks good. Make sure to seal them really well, oak doesn't do well in a marine environment. If you check my thread (Spirit 23 in Charlotte) you can see some I made using that plastic lumber they...

Re: iPad - the charging conundrum

There are a lot of options out there and yes I'd say a basic electrical system would be a good idea. Especially since if you are leaving it on a mooring I'd want a bilge pump! Get a small agm battery...

Re: Centerboard repair-Bristol 32

Where you show the cable chafe is it where it connects to the centerboard? Still wouldn't think amsteel would handle chafe better than wire but in any case use a thimble.

Re: Centerboard repair-Bristol 32

If you are going to stick with bronze a zinc and grounding it might not be a bad idea, but you would want to research that since adding a zinc is not a cure all. If you go bronze you might want to...

Re: Centerboard repair-Bristol 32

I don't have a lot of answers but I would question the bronze supports. Why would you not go ahead and have stainless steel ones made instead of bronze? Seems like it'd be a lot easier to find...

Re: Interesting Sailboats

All beautiful boats there. It sounds like you take euro style to be said with a bad intent which I didn't get. The last picture in your post is what I would certainly refer to as a euro style which I...

Re: Things lost in the water

Well, just lost an anchor. It was just an 8lb genuine danforth that was a second anchor and getting ready to be a third soon but still irritating. Was only in about 15 feet of water, dark outside and...

Re: Topping Lift

So I will ressurect this thread yet again with my .02 on using the topping lift for sail shape. I don't have one on this boat but did on my 16 footer.

That boat did not have a traveler and so I...

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

Man, no love for the Johnson Sailmaster. Fine little 2 stroke outboard even if it's a little dirty!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I just beveled a 22.5 degree angle on the bottom and top. I did it with a table saw so they all fit together really tight. I thought about doing like a notch thing which would have worked find but...

Re: outboard well in a 26 footer -

I have to say that I really like outboard wells since they conceal as well as protect the motor, plus the better handling with the prop behind the rudder. I also really like the westerlys.

But it...

Re: Expanding foam to seal mast step cable hole?

Honestly the bike tube idea with some sealant around the wires (butyl tape or wax would work) would stop 99% of it. The drip loop would help and all that but sounds like overkill for the problem you...

Re: Wood this be a fast boat?

Yeah, that boat looks fast just sitting there! Great lines. And let's get real, we are in sailboats so fast is all relative. If you are going to go slow at least look good doing it!

Looks like you figured the stick out. Are the normal bits that hold the motor up broken?

Re: Fish club, or sex toy?

Yeah, those stanchion blocks look big enough for a 1/8 inch line for a downhaul or roller reefing line.

The stick I would also say looks like something you'd use to hold the outboard up.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

The link to your pic is broken. Looks good and a heck of a lot cheaper than new blocks!

Re: Small boat anchor

Second the above statements. The danforth should be fine for a lunch anchor, and the navy one is only good for about a second, maybe beach anchor.

I also agree that the 25lb mantus seems like a...

'81 Spirit 23 in Charlotte, NC

Re: My Project Boat

Looks really nice and I love the detent system. I know it is a smallish boat but do you think the fiberglass sheet will be strong enough? I am guessing so but I'd probably feel better with aluminum...
