  1. There was One I550 build in Brazil by Bruno Telles. He had some challenges but managed to make it work. I contacted him and he suggested to make it by strip planking as the method he made by making large panels and fitting them line Plywood was very difficult. I can share with you the feedback I got from Bruno. I myself have been planning on foam core and infusion.
  2. Congratulations. That is indeed a great "Barn find". Looking forward to see it race and win.

  13. T&S, It is not perfect, but you can use Bablefish to translate. Enter English and translate, just remember to translate back to English to see how close it converted your words. http://babelfish.yah...m/translate_txt Bruno, Any progress on building your boat? Alguns progridem em construir seu barco? Some progress in constructing its boat? Thanks Chateau de Chien, I've been looking for a site like that. S Don't think that Bruno will answer. I have already tried to PM him few times as I am also going to move the way Bruno was starting. I did translate to Portuguese. B
  14. Looks interesting Jim. What is the measurement data? Do keep us posted on the progress. The GP26 fleet is growing steadily with a new build starting up in Europe, and hopefully there will be more interest in the US soon. But the entire boat building industry has been slowed by the economic situation, so we'll have to wait a while until things start heating up again. Jim would be very interested in building the GP26, but this will not happen until the are customers.
