Re: Mike Smith's TW28 build

There are plenty of ways to 'skin' the cat, but I would assume you would wrap the skin on the mould and then spot epoxy it. Then once the exterior of the boat is glassed; it wouldn't be going anywhere. Now, I realize I am not an experienced tw28 builder. Duh, right? But you need to temp fasten the p...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Have you considered? https://www.porta-bote.com/ Yes. I even considered building a stowage compartment for one. At the end, I could not find a space to stow it and it is not unsinkable, so it lost some appeal. Look guys. I am building the TD3. It will happen soon. I am going to modify it to float i...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

FG, I'm sure you've already considered it but what are the cons of the GV10, since Evan designed it for his sailboat? Seems light enough for your purposes and also seems to have enough capacity? While I prefer to keep to JM, Evan or Richards designs on here, is a nesting dinghy like these feasible?...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

A liferaft would have been safer than the dinghy the article says they had to cut loose because it filled with water... Not intending any offense. At some point all of this becomes polemics you know. Their boat was probably as safe or safer than a deployable liferaft. The only difference would be I...

Re: 24’ Radon rebuild

Otherwise; if they can earmuff the od; then they would flush from there and run from there, but the seacock would have been in place for any other water needs onboard. Baitwell, od impeller out?, etc.

Re: 24’ Radon rebuild

Lots of times this is done for flushing saltwater.

The boat runs on the sea.

Then in order to flush; the seacock is closed and a garden hose hooked (somewhere).

Maybe I am missing something here, but that is typically why we'd see a tee off the seacock.

Re: Another Privateer Roamer Skiff

I did not remove cap yet. That was an example of the cradle system from another documented build on THT. Final thickness of the transom including glass will be around 1 5/8- 1 3/4”. I plan on installing one of the new Mercury ProXS 115’s, 45# lighter than the competition, quieter, faster (almost 13...
