Re: Jaysen's V12 -- 'Lil Bit' of everything fun

Sounds like a really great adventure.
Yes, learn how to play the sheet. Dinghy sailors always have the sheet or traveler in their hand; they don't just cleat it.

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

I'm not real good with a skill saw. I'd never cut curves with one before but that's what Jacques recommends so I thought, what's the worst thing that can happen?--Besides, like, cutting off my hand. But anyway, it does work really well and you'll get a fairer curve than with a jig saw. Easy peasy.

Re: Jan 6, the build begains....LM18

I like the idea of poling a boat. Never done that although I've been on a boat in LA that someone else poled. Pretty cool. Around here I'm going to have to stick to rowing.

Re: need help with the build threads in order to appear in the link for my gallery

I think what he was asking about was why his build thread did not appear on the build thread page under DE 23. On the build thread page it says to email bateau if you don't see your thread, and I didn't, so that's what I'd suggest.
