Re: OB 19 in Maryland

Looks great and remember - "Gaps r Gud" This is time you want to start checking with a straight edge to make sure - 1. The panels are resting on the frames 2. Port/Starboard symmetry ( if there are gaps, that they're the same on both sides) 3. No stitch induced warps on the aft 30% of the hull (the ...

Re: OB17 Build in Oklahoma

Nice work! I remember this phase, it's nice to be NOT be sanding, cleating, or tabbing for a change isn't it?

Enjoy, as soon as the sole is down and sealed, you're in the home stretch.

Re: C17 (Classic 17) in London

I'm sure you'll come with an elegant solution Tim, you always do :wink:

If you could have located the plane of the hinge pivot point at the same height as the edge(s), it would have cleared.

Re: C17 (Classic 17) in London

Top notch Tim. As usual your engineering and execution are great. Thanks for sharing! It may be time to start a new thread ... "C17 in Africa" or something like that :D :doh: I hope the mods fit well.

Re: Curacao CS 25

Peter, I like them all - they look like good quality chairs that nicely match the character of your boat. Personally I would choose the 1st bench style instead of the individual seat. That's the style I built for mine only because I have family and some some guests who's derrieres simply wouldn't fi...

Great to hear you're alive and well Tim! First, in my opinion, you have to either secure the anchor in the locker or have a hatch. Having that anchor bounce out when you hit some unexpected chop or wake could have nasty consequences... Easiest way to get the curve may be to cut a piece of 1/8" door ...

Re: OB19 in SW FL

On the OB17, the frames were spaced at 3' (90% sure) http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/11134/normal_mockup%20coaming%202.jpg By the time I added the coaming, it created an "I" beam effect which is super stiff with no additional support.
