Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

Yes, I get that. Gray water is water from showering, dishwashing, clothes washers, etc. But why keep it aboard? People have gray water systems to keep plants watered during droughts. I don't know about inland lakes but no body of water around here requires that, and we like to think we're pretty gre...

What the heck is a "gray-water" tank?

Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

Rick, two things: One, what is "basalt?" Two, I think it's pretty funny that you warn us about noise and then don't put on any ear protection. I have found in my dotage that the lack of safety gear when younger has begun to take its toll...so I wouldn't want to be one to give advice but I'd say, be ...

Re: AD-14

No way I can tell from those shots but offhand I'd say she looks good. If the boat is sitting on its lines at the dock, then it isn't down at the head unless you built it wrong or Jacques designed it wrong...so in other words, not likely. On race boats you always get the weight aft when sailing down...

Re: Oak rub rails

Yes, nothing wrong with white oak for boats...but red oak would be OK too, but only if treated with the coatings you suggest. Here is a very good discussion: https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/sealing-epoxy-red-oak.35354/ I know it may be overkill but on the rubrails and various other parts of my bo...

Re: GV10 Sept 2018 “Offcuts" Splashed

Yes, good point. Mine is on a fiberglass hull, and I just checked the website and it says for single-layer fiberglass hulls. Hmm. I don't know what "single-layer" refers to but I'd guess my hull is made of more than one layer. 8O Probably right, it wouldn't work through a composite hull. Humminbird ...

Re: GV10 Sept 2018 “Offcuts" Splashed

You could always go with an actual thru-hull transducer. Garmin also makes an in-hull transducer that you just glue into the bilge. I have a cheap Humminbird that mounts that way that has worked well for years but it's a depthsounder only.

Re: Mike Smith's TW28 build

knottybuoys says he has to work when it is Hotter than a hooker's doorknob on nickle night Thanks for that one, Rick. Love the picture of the truck full of plywood. Mike, keep up the good work and keep posting about your progress with pictures. These TW28 builds are very elaborate and fun to follow.
