Re: PK78 Question

The plans included full size drawings.
I don't like them, it's easier to use the dimensions but they are included anyway.

Re: Small sailboat

Here it is: https://tpwd.texas.gov/fishboat/boat/owner/titles_and_registration/ As soon as you put an outboard on it, it must be registered. Non-motorized canoes, kayaks, punts, rowboats, or rubber rafts (regardless of length) when paddled, poled, or oared and sailboats under 14 feet in length when ...

Re: Small sailboat

The CV16 hull is between 14' 4" and 14' 6" depending on the length of the bow knee. That knee is where you fasten the forestay and you can either extend it above the pram bow or cut it flush.

Re: CK17 daggerboard

I checked and I think the confusion comes from the two options. The standard version uses a dagger board. The dagger board is exactly as I show on D213/5 and in the profile drawings with the short side towards the bow. The rounded edges are important, they allow the dagger board to go up and pivot w...
