My old company produced high powered GaAs lasers in the fab. Arsine gas was one of the feedstocks. The running joke was that arsine gas supposedly smelled like garlic. Or strawberries. No one knew for sure, since anyone who had smelled arsine was dead.
This thread started me down a rabbit hole on Rhodes designs of this vintage. Eventually I ended up on a Sailnet thread about CCA boats (Kris - I think you might be on that one).
There was a long debate about the structural integrity of 60s vintage boats, and a stance that their age makes...
I’d like to see a smaller, open version of that Whisper. May 20-22 feet, single engine.
Curious how they are getting what appears to be a compound curve in the plywood topsides with the tumblehome aft.
The boat in the photo is not mine. Just used that as a hatch reference. Mine (which I just picked up today) has no cleats. I rescued it from neglectful home. Needs a bit of glass work on the bottom and at bow eye.
@bluelaser2- did you also put a square top on yours? ...
