Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I just remembered when i was looking for a windless for my boat there was a company in Australia that made some really nice below deck drum windlesses . The only thing above deck was a stainless steel curved hawse pipe. Maybe something to look at. Yup! I have a Lonestar anchor winch in the anchor w...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

OK guys, pressure is off!

Michael, enjoy building at your leisure and for your pleasure, and we will revisit the concept of a meet when Skinnydip’s official launch day becomes clearer.

I just love exploring new places so I am really looking forward to our trip “up river”!

Cheers

Re: Reverse chine and spray rails

Silentneko, my boat is 22’. My chines/strakes are made from single lengths of timber, bent and twisted to follow the hull without steaming or kerfing, and no cracking of the timber. It can be done!
