    The "I built my own boat, or mostly built my own boat" thread

    3D printed daggerboard templates?

    Another option is to make a stainless steel laser cut template. I although used 3D printed templates - but they have to be around 4-5 mm thick to be dimensionally stable.

    What filler will hide thin gaps

    You can use white microballoons and sawdust, mix it with epoxy and try to find the color that you like to have. The color will not change while the epoxy is curing. Oh, and try to find a UV stabilized clear epoxy.

    Why are multihulls more expensive to maintain?

    In the "Nassauhafen, Wilhelmshaven" in Germany they charge 3x for a Trimaran and 2x for Catamaran. The logic is simple: 3 hulls vs 2 hulls vs 1! In some areas they don´t want to have multis.

    Brest Atlantiques 2019

    The Mod 70s were designed with ability to cant their masts. The rake or AoA of their C foils was only adjustable in the harbour. They had put a row of screws through different holes to change the AoA.

    SailGP 2019

    Germany was not geoblocked. I was able to see it live and it was great albeit a little short. They shoud swap the grinders between the races and do more laps/races.

    Antal Hook

    The working load of the Antal Hook is way higher than 200kg!  Low friction ring and soft shackle is the cheapest / lightest solution. Ulf
