Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Yes Lee, our Noosa Oyster Reef Restoration Project, and our broader Bring Back The Fish Project, is stimulating oyster reef restoration in Pummicestone Passage and Moreton Bay. :D Together, we're building regional momentum. I'm looking forward to using Skinnydip to get to and from regional pow wows....

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Jaysen and Bogieman. :D The professional boat builder who for years has been doing maintenance work beyond my ability on Great Sandy came over today and fashioned corner trim blocks for Skinnydip's cockpit coamings. They still need further trimming to marry up with the side coamings. The firs...

I read this to mean that if the ring were removed, the tiller post would be visible.
Correct, all this latest stuff is about looking right after the structurls/mecnanicals have been taken care of. :wink:

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks OQ and cape man for your comments re aesthetics. :D I know the tiller is temp one on the pic. Will you be using the same type of wood for donut and tiller? Ilker, Initially I'm going to going to use an off the shelf teak flag staff that will hopefully weather to match the grain and colour of ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

The way it looks now seems to just fit with the other 3 pieces of hardware, non of them are built up. Correct OQ. :D However on reflection it still didn't look quite right. I want the tiller head to be a little more visually prominent than the 3 adjacent pieces: socket for anchor light pole, clamp ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Ilker, topwater and Fuzz. :D Agreed, what I posted last night was out of proportion. The first pic below show the tiller head mounting situation. The second with a minimalist cover plate The third what it looks like with the tiller head mounted. I'm a lot happier with this. Thanks again. http...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks OQ. :D I've been playing around with a timber donut pad and a 316 stainless steel stanchion base plate to dress below the Edson tiller head. I think it needs to be less chunky. Ignore the clunky tiller - it's a temporary piece of scrap pine. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87242/no...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Looks like the bottom picture is showing the black panel longer or bigger. Then the top picture is missing the bottom 4" or so. Did you move some of the instruments to make it shorter? Yes. When the bottom pic was taken, there was a 4" upturn to accommodate the round scupper tubes. Immediately abov...
