Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks cape man, Jeff, Lee and OQ. Today we safely crossed the Wide Bay Bar and sailed 60 nautical miles south to Mooloolaba. On balance, we now feel safe from Tropical Cyclone (re-formed) Owen. Right now, we're tired beyond redemption, and need to get our heads down. All we can do. So Jaysen (from ...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I think you have a few days up your sleeve, Michael. “Owen” has to cross the peninsula, reform in the Gulf, then head SE a fair way to get to you. The latest forecasts are predicting that this coming Sunday a re-formed cyclone Owen could cross back out over the coast at Wide Bay. Tonight we're anch...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks Fuzz and OQ. :D We"ll need to be outta here shortly. Tropical cyclone Owen looks to be re-forming, with its edge effects heading our way. We want to be in the safety of home waters before then. To do so we've first got to cross the challenging Wide Bay Bar (Lat 25.46733 S, Lng 153.07.610 E). ...

Re: Kiwi Grip Grey

Last week on my build thread topwater advised: "I have light gray Kiwi Grip on the sole of my boat and it will get hot with bare feet. On my next build I will use a different color or a different product" . I suspect a shade of gray half way between Kiwi Grip's white and gray may be bare foot friend...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Thanks cape man. It's been three weeks since we cast off the lines, along with the pleasures of the flesh like a fresh vegie store, a bespoke wine list, good restaurants/bistros/cafes, and a truly extended long hot shower. :help: So today we dropped the pick off the Kingfisher Bay Eco Resort, tucked...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Fitment was pretty great. We cutout each socket on its own. Measured height with a laser and one end was 536mm to laser, other side 533.5 Measured distance to other beam notch and star was 245 3/16 and port was 245 1/8. All well within or even closer than expected. Shims make it perfect. I bet that...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I spent some time this rainy Saturday afternoon learning about the light reflective value (lvr) of different colours, courtesy of dr google. The higher the lvr, the more a colour reflects sunlight and stays cooler. A black painted deck will have a lvr of around 4, a stark white one a lvr in the mid ...
