    I'm making a rudder

    erdb, Very nice work on the rudder! Is that a Santana 23, daggerboard model?

    Holy frijoles Koko, she's a beauty! It looks like the cabin top is strip planked. The foredeck is stunning; what is it made of? Do you have more photos of the interior? How about pics of the construction? Thanks

    boat suggestion? light, small, blue water potential

    Scott, Got it, that all makes sense. Thanks for taking the time to respond. This is yacht design at it's finest!!

    boat suggestion? light, small, blue water potential

    Scott, I think it's completely cool what you're doing! I really appreciate you sharing your design of the new boat. Please keep 'em coming. I followed along the design and build of Marsh Duck on your blog. I'm impressed on how you kept the weight down. The new boat also looks like a winner. What's the thinking on going from an aft cabin to a forward cabin? Are you thinking of a similar kind of construction? Will you have oarlock 'wings' like Marsh Duck? Why another monohull instead of , say, your 5.5 meter narrow trimaran? Thanks!!

    Small and Seaworthy, why?

    "the Melges 24 has a 60% ballast ratio" where did you get that? this says 37%

    Thanks Lass, and keep 'em coming. I don't think anyone here has ever complained about too many photos. Your previous boat is also a beauty.

    Metal Boats

    I was re-reading John Ilingworth's "The Malham Story"; he's describing the 1965(?) Quarter Ton Cup in Bresken with"a very good crew of Steve Ratsey, Yves Tanton and Tuffin." I hope YMT will chime in about what this was like. Maybe it's time for him to write his memoirs?

    My newest project

    Bob, I'm glad you've decided not to take a break. The forum would be a poorer place without you.

    My newest project

    I too find the photos, of bits and pieces, really interesting. The amount of time and thought, that goes into a custom boat, is just incredible. Thanks Bob, and keep 'em coming.
