Re: Ta Chiao CT35

To begin with ballast has zero to do with SA/D. Did you mean B/D? I know that yard very well. I have spent days hanging out there. They would have used iron ballast in one large piece and not "scarp...

Re: My newest project

My wife called the office. "When you get home will you check to see if there is a tube on the door step. I'm expecting a Peter Max print."

Re: My newest project

Well, sorry about that but I swam competitively for years and I could not race in cut off jeans! However, I'm one of those people cursed with a fear of heights so that was not me on the high dive.

Thank you. It's kind of like Chinese lacquer "painting". Where they cut through the different colors ( red and black).

Re: My newest project

Good question. Jim Betts uses three different primer colors. These are applied in layers so that as you fair you see which color you are invading. This way you have a warning before getting...

I raced on FRANCIS LEE yesterday. Francis is a 63' strip planked Western Red cedar hull with a composite deck. There is not reason you cannot build a modern boat with wood. Good alu yards are...

Re: My newest project

Denise: I doubt it. The plug may have been made in a similar manner but I'm sure your boat came out of a female mold. That would be the "normal" way to build a high production boat. In this case we...
