    Tasar Single handed

    See, I knew I was keeping the weight on for something....I got you beat by a little.

    Tasar Single handed

    Question for Ed, or others....How difficult is it to right a Tasar single-handedly?

    What cat is this?

    Hello, Can anyone tell me the manufacturer of a ten-year old cat with this sail (see pic)? Thanks, Bob

    Craigslist Finds

    There's a free Paceship P17 in Walpole, NH. No sails but there is a trailer. Better move fast.
  5. Hi All, Plans for building a new dagger-board call for ripping strips and gluing them together. If the full size board is 1.5" thick, and your thickness goal is just under an inch, wouldn't it make sense to grind down to the desired thickness? Is a ripped and glued (yes, epoxied) board stronger than the natural board? I realize that I will need to glue two boards to get the 11" width I need. The same question applies to building the rudder. Thanks for your help. B.

    Tasar Single handed

    Can someone who has tried/ done it speak to a single-handler righting a capsized Tasar? Is there a weight threshold that can make it more doable? B.

    Tasar Specs

    I have found another method for making rudder and centerboard cores using sections of Western red cedar that are ripped and epoxied back together. I am also planning on wrapping the finished products in fiberglass. Thanks again, RB for the loan of the blades. Drove to upstate NY and back yesterday to pickup a trailer kit. Talk about putting the cart before the horse! B.

    Tasar Specs

    Hi RB, Thanks for the offer. How about If I bring some cardboard and trace them at your place? Then you won't have to worry, and I'll save a second two-hour round trip? If OK, what's your schedule like? Bob

    Tasar Specs

    Hey Ed, Thanks very much for doing that - I really appreciate it. I will definitely post pics of the finished products (maybe some in-progress ones, too). Thanks again, Bob

    Tasar Specs

    Thanks for all the warnings and other suggestions. Ed, if you could just send along the height and width of the dagger-board blade, and rudder, I'll be good to go. I do have the thicknesses of both. I also have a pattern for a NACA foil that I intend to use. Thanks for your help. Bob

    Tasar Specs

    Hi Ed, Yes, I'm planing to build both the centerboard and rudder from layers of high-density plywood. I adopted a '95 Tasar....literally the hull only. I'm hoping to put some kind of mutt sailboat together. Purist I'm not, nor do I have unlimited funds, so we'll see what happens. Bob

    Tasar Specs

    Hello, Can someone provide the (rough) dimensions of a Tasar centerboard and rudder? I'm thinking height, width, and depth (thickness). Thanks

    Well, I was afraid that's what it meant, but was hoping otherwise. Not exactly what I was expecting in a sailing forum.

    Hello, New user here with a question about the first thing I read - the Abbreviated Rules. What does "Don't insinuate Pedo." mean? Thanks
