Re: Homemade wooden pushpits?

I made my tiller out of white oak and mahogany a few years back and it still looks fine; but I have a cover for it. You should cover all brightwork if you can as varnish will only last a year outside, if that. That's why I mentioned brightwork at the beginning of this string. http://gallery.bateau2....

More brightwork or paint.
Never seen it done, and there might be a reason for that.

Re: Transom modification AD16 Myrtle Beach Bogieman

I would not make any adjustments to the design without consulting Jacques. Perhaps these are purely aesthetic issues, perhaps not.

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Now, Bogie, that is some fantastic progress. Sure looks like you had no hiccups.

But just one little caution:
You say,
The hardest part of the build is behind me now.
