Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks cape man and Bogieman. :D Will you treat the wood with oil or something to keep it that bronze color? Don't know that species at all. Does it turn grey over time? What I've been seeking since day one of this build is the aesthetic of the traditional workboats I love most - sweet lines, white ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Karl and Richard. It's nice to receive such compliments from builders of your calibre. :D The forward cockpit coaming trim looks the part. The forward coaming itself will sit above it. The rounded coaming corners need to be installed before the coaming itself, as the joints between the corner...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

:lol: This afternoon I cut to shape then glued in a Crows Ash trim that will sit in behind and protrude down from the forward cockpit coaming. I'd previously laminated up two planks of Crows Ash to form a piece wide enough to cut the curved trim from . The first pic shows the laminated trim lying ac...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks for the compliments on the corners cape man, Jeff, Fuzz, OQ and Jaysen. :D Now back to our regular programming... Show us more Michael. Have rough cut the two aft corners of the cockpit coamings out of Crows Ash. In the pic below they've been temporarily placed in position. Infill strips of C...

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...

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 ...
