Without someone standing in the photo there is no reference to size here.
Both the raw timber ladder-frame and the recycled black steel work-bench frame are 6"8" long, +/- 1". She's a tiddler. :D

Re: Cape Man's Dory

David! I am not happy! There are no fish here! :lol: :lol: 8) Cape man, what is science telling us about fish stocks in your part of the world? Here in Noosa, we commissioned The Nature Conservancy scientists to conduct exhaustive 100 year plus archival research to analyse changing patterns of loca...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Been plugging away at building the ladder frame and standing the frames for the Feather Pram. First pic shows the five temporary plywood moulds, the right hand end of the ladder frame bevelled to take the bow ransom, and to the left raked standing posts to take the aft transom. Enjoying the precisio...

Today Lil Bit delivered on her most important mission. She ferried her Majesty to the edge of the world. Mrs gets it. She really does! ..... Mrs kept saying “I know she’s small but I feel safe!”
Great news and pics! Well done Lil Bit's builder, skipper, and crew. :D

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

IF, you are going to work on the e-drive start with what does work, the diesel and get the rpms where you want them and then work on the pulleys. Should correct the overheating of the edrive then. Thanks OQ, and I agree with the approach you've outlined. It's the one I'll take in due course, but I'...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Was asking as I want a picture of her up in the Noosa Everglades where you can't use the diesel. I can wait and won't ask again. Enjoy her as is! Between all the years to get here and now starting the new boat, just stink it up. I bet she is turning some heads! Capeman, I’ll be down that way at Xma...

Re: AIS/VHF antennas

Our cruising experience is that from a safety perspective, you need to see others via AIS, and they need to see you. When we installed send & receive AIS some 10 years ago, two VHF antennas were required. Check that any system claiming only one is required is not just receive (you seeing others). If...
