Re: Mast and Boom for Vg20

The Hunter rig is probably a bit tall but might do. You can put smaller sails on a bigger rig but not bigger sails on a smaller rig. :wink: And anyway, bigger is not necessarily a bad thing. More sail area in light wind and when it pipes up you perhaps have a slightly larger reef. I don't know about...

Re: Vg20 finally underway

I found your post when you were looking for a rig and it looks like you haven't posted on this string for awhile.
If you have some recent photos of your progress, please post, I'd like to see them. :D

Re: Mast and Boom for Vg20

Check Minney's http://www.minneysyachtsurplus.com/
and here: https://www.usedboatequipment.com/ad-ca ... sts-booms/
and Ebay of course.

I think Cal 20 stuff would work but check with Jacques.

Of course, some ambitious builders have made their own! :wink:

Re: Mast and Boom for Vg20

Please post dimensions.
I actually have a laser mast and boom I'd give to you but I don't think they're big enough.

Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

You put a dog out and it runs around a little and comes back and says "What now, boss? The ball? The park? A walk? Yay!" You put the cat out and it doesn't even look back. They don't dwell on the past. They're so over it. I look at every one of those You Tube channels you mentioned. I'm especially f...

Re: Sling lifts and 2 part epoxy

Most folks I know who lift their boats in slings rig a bridle for that purpose.
If you haul a boat out with a Travelift the yard folks will wrap the slings in plastic to avoid abrasion. I've never had a problem with that.

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Not sure I exactly follow, but the idea is to never have edges of plywood exposed even if it is good marine ply. Now, many thousands of boats have been built without observing this nicety, but it's not the methodology approved by THE BUREAU.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

For Bogie and Karl: Now that you may be approaching doing the running rigging, I want to put in a word for the Spinlock pxr cleats here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGqEevr50II They are pricey but easily cleated and released with one hand, which is great on a small boat when you may be often sin...
