    Origami Boat Thread

    See http://www.biekerboats.com/Bieker_Boats/Riptide_55_Particulars.html Construction Details Built by Shaw Boats in Aberdeen, WA. The goal of the construction was to maximize performance for a given cost and maximize the use of laminated flat stock. Hull below the chine was built of strip planked Duracore with eglass/epoxy skins. The sides were built from carbon/eglass/epoxy skins on balsa core layed up on a flat table and cut to computer patterns. These sides were sprung into the female building jig. The deck and cockpit surfaces were similarly built from carbon skin /honeycomb core flat panels sprung into place like a “stitch and glue” dinghy. All interior parts were built from lightweight composite panels cut out to accurate computer patterns for minimum weight and minimum waste.

    Anyone know the story on this zombie J/35 on p dock, shilshole? Fitted with twin furlers! Looks like it has been sitting for a long time...

    I know this is digging way back into this thread, but I think one of the Commencement Bay 22s is still down at Tacoma Yacht Club, named The Grin. Cool little boat.

    Looks like G-10 for the backing plates... http://www.mcmaster.com/#grade-g-10-phenolic/=qrieu9 Lots of batteries? What's the capacity?

    The boat is a daysailer with a non overlapping headsail on a furler and i imagine a low friction mainsail track with halyard to the cockpit. I don't imagine Kim will be needing to go forward too often in poor conditions. Adding ballast - i doubt it.

    Sure! It's really been an honor to watch the build of this boat. Not many individuals these days willing to devote the energy and resources to a project like this. I look forward to seeing her on the water!

    I would think this should be evident for those who have been through the entire thread! No lack of experience or foresight on this project...

    That is a wild looking house/hard dodger arrangement on the boat. Would love more shots! I sailed on Thunderhead as a youngster a few times. Wasn't it constructed out of steel?
