  1. I checked the plan book and it looks like you wrote a #21 on the cover. So it's settled then!
  2. I went back to see if I had any info on how many plans sold. I may actually have plan set #21, need to double check this. They were Craig's plans from this thread. I'll be loosing my shop space in a few months. I hope to get another space suitable for building by the end of our summer. Are Evil Gnome and Mad Hatter both long cabin hulls built in glass?
  3. OK, I believe you guys about beam building, lots of steps and four are needed to be built. I'm not in a rush to get into another building project after three years worth of refitting anyway. One problem I have with reusing my beams is that my original floats are now in very good condition with many improvements made at the cost of sweat and blood. We'll see where I'm at in a couple of years. I hold the plans for F-85SR #23, so I have lots of options.
  4. Yes, that was a fitted mast quote. You're correct, the price drops to almost half removing full fit out. I saw the pics of your mast and thought I should explore the possibility of a new rig. I decided to hold out and use my original mast with a new set of sails. When I wear them out I will decide what to do. If I decide to build a set of F-85 floats/beams for my F-25C I may add the F-85 rig too. That was were I was heading when considering a new rig. I'm also watching the F-85 float rudders discussion with considerable interest.
  5. I went back and checked. Just over $22k NZD ex freight.
  6. Are they both the unlimited rig (12.6m)?
  7. I think C-Tech. I got a quote from them at $22k USD, which is beyond my means.
  8. That Motive 25R is rated pretty quick!
  9. Yeah, but having to find a second crew for a such a small boat? I'm not into that at all.
  10. Isn't the mast in the video the old one? The spinnaker is the old smaller one too. This is the best boat brochure video I've ever seen. It's very well done and shows lots of details.
  11. It could just be that a deck plate leaked a bit and there is some water inside weighing down the stern or some other weight aft. Just pour some lead in the ring frame. That's how Team Oracle USA would fix it!
  12. The prodder looks like the nose on a plague mask to me
  13. Looks like a fun day sailor. Is this a Grainger design?
