Re: TW 28

Re: TW28 Luka

Peter, next week the Tough girl is going to Belgium. We're coming! I'll call you soon. I can indeed confirm that a TW28 is a perfect boat for two people to make longer trips. She is a stable, easy to sail and comfortable boat. Like the Luka, the Tough girl has a four cylinder Mitsubishi of 40 hp, sh...

A new Dutch builder! Great.
As Jacques already wrote, yes you can make changes. I raised the roof of my boat en made the gunwales a little wider.
Keep us informed.

Re: Project TW28

Colin, The Stoere meid is just a little higher than 240 cm. I raised the cabin with 5 cm. But the actual waterline of the Stoere meid is some 8 cm higher than the designed waterline. We have about 500 kg of ballast on board, most of it in the bow. We don't have so much gear under the floor, batterie...

Already looking for the meeting of next year, which will be held in Belgium. So this is a open invitation to all other (European) TW28 builders and potential builders. A uniqu...

Re: TW28 Luka

Water in the Netherlands is no problem, you can fill up your tank(s) in every marina. That is the reason I have a 100 liter tank. So I have always fresh water. We have every 10 km...

Re: TW28 Stoere meid

Just back from my first trip with the Stoere meid. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/23160/normal_Stoere_meid_250.jpg It was great. The boat meets all my wishes. She is easy to handle and comfortable sailing. Even my wife could do it. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/23160/normal_...
