Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Good sail yesterday. Wind no more than 8 knots but we scooted along and got to 7 knots boat speed at one point. Everything is working very well. Sailmaker Jack Christiansen from North was aboard so he was fine tuning a few things and tutoring us on some techniques. My Lucky was aboard for his first sail. As he stood on the dock when we got back he said, "I got just what I wanted. You guys did a great job."
It was a most satisfying day.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Thanks for sharing, seeing that coastline again makes we want some Dungeness crab and beer.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

The pix are really nice; 'perfect day' sort of nice.
The main sail now needs its Class emblem, and at least a one-design sail number. (#1 ?)

Apropos of nothing in particular, I once participated in a regatta beside Ken Wheeler, who was sailing R-20 #1, named Ichi Ban.
I was sailing hull #182, and later #456. Those were really the Good Old Days.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

She looks great, perfect on her lines and little to no bow wave (even in the light breeze I would figure a boat of that size would look like it were pushing more water). Well done to the whole team!

Glad I found this thread over hear on Sailnet!!

I don't want the boat to "push water". That's energy going in the wrong direction.

While not the best news for performance, its always nice to see a boat with enough speed on to have 'a bone in her teeth'. While I know there is no need for one since there is no canvas deck meeting a varnished cabin side, but somehow I miss the shadow line of the drip stop above the row of ports and accenting the camber in the coachroof.

Lovely boat!

I was adamant about a teak eyebrow for quite a while. But as the boat neared completion I felt that there was so much going on with the deck that an eyebrow would just add clutter and be an affectation. I like this clean look we have without it. It's hard to see in the pic but the nonskid wraps over the edge of the house and it is a darker, contrasting color.

Re: Bob Perry's Carbon Cutters

Bob,

I see your point. The non-skid does show up a little when you blow up the pictures. It looks like you had a bright sunny day decreasing the apparent contrast in the pictures.

When you blow up the pictures that boat is full of interesting details. You may have explained this once but I am wondering a little about the dual backstays with what looks like dual hydraulic rams. It is an interesting detail that gets the backstays away from the rudder and helmsman. It is nice that you have some redundancy, but it also seems like unless there is a sheave at the top of the mast, one or the other would be working harder at any given time.

It's hard to tell what is happening with the jib sheet leads. Does the genoa sheet run to a lead block on the caprail and then to a turning block nearer to the cockpit? It looks like the staysail sheet lead is a track on the coachroof that is lead after to winch at the aft end of the house.

Anyway, its really exciting to see the first boat actually out sailing. Its also hard to believe that this thread started in June of 2015 and that the plug was well underway by then.

Jeff

Interesting how the Boat looks bigger when you get people on deck, not sure how or why but its noticeable. I love the wrinkles in the luff(s) Im a tweeker and love to have that to take up as the wind builds. She's Beautiful Bob.
