  1. That Seriously? When? On the inland side or the water side? That'll be the north side of Lion Rock. Big day. Thought it looked familiar, but was expecting some location in USA...
  2. I'll jump in an suggest that SloopJB is tipping his hat to you, not criticizing. It's a big job, and only someone with your time and energy can take it on. We all have our limits. I'm building a boat. Not the scale of your project but its good to know ones limits. I think we all wish you the best
  3. seeing his name boats are getting attention https://www.boatinternational.com/luxury-yacht-events/design-and-innovation-awards/bda-thanks/boat-international-design-innovation-awards-2019-winners-announced--39443/frame-21
  4. That bow knuckle clearly indicates a savvy ratings tweak. Worthy.
  5. humm. Im no boat builder but I have worked with redwood in the past and remember it for the way you could split it perfectly and easily. I hope you'll add some transverse strength
  6. One must really admire the brake lights there. Truely thinking about safety and respect for others on the road
  7. I'd have said 'that boat has scuppers' rather than 'that boat has a bull rail' Pleasant lines though
  8. He must have ventured outside the environment
  9. One has to admire that it floats, that is seems close to its lines as well, and the fact that it has sailed so far from shore.
  10. nice, someone who knows how to make friends! welcome aboard
  11. Mackeitte redd an Ime theire...... I'm just quoting this so I get to see her again
  12. Ahh! my first car. Peugeot 403. Gas cap was under the tail light. Loved that car. Column shift. I could change without the clutch. thx for a great thread Hobot.
  13. lapse in protocol - dont be wiping your nose on that ffs. else they are just off to clean out a wasp nest
  14. Maybe Brad might be wondering more about who his Dad really is. I'm sure he reads here. l
  15. Is that Major Rob Ford getting a left in?
  16. whats the deal with the stern on this one? Is that a notch for another ship to snuggle into and rumba through the ice?
  17. BE CAREFUL... I almost turned a laser into a beachball by pressurizing it using a vacuum cleaner. I was totally unprepared for how destructive that little test was. l I hope to make it, but it won't be easy. Some parts have to be finished before I hit the road - like the roof rack, rudder cassette and tiller extension. Meanwhile, another batch of questions: 1. If anyone with a stock Kinder jib could measure the batten lengths, that would be really helpful. Somehow I have misplaced my jib battens, but not my main battens. 2. I have not one, but two, 1/4" drai
  18. 43 pages dedicated to wonderful asymmetry. and i thought it was symmetry that we were supposed to be attracted to. fools.
  19. what else makes women throw up and need medical attention?? (apart from the sight of some of you folks) This is your mid term exam now everyone.
  20. as it happens, I have just finished reading a very well written and entertaining book (Terra Incognita, Sara Wheeler) about her experience as the first (sanctioned?) artist to visit Antarctica (I think that prior to this any artist was a scientist first, artist second, free-loading hippies dont count) I'd recommend this book for any of you who fancy some writing that is several cuts above what you are reading here - and no less entertaining.
