Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

Went and bought myself a 40ft sailboat and moved onto it. Between the thousand things to fix on the big boat and the lack of build space it's going to be a while before I can build another. I'd really like to bang out a nesting dinghy that can sail. We'll see what the future brings though. I also ha...

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

I have since sold the boat actually. I might be able to get a video of the tabernacle working though. It's been through a few minor adjustments. What I learned along the way is that it would be best to plan a way to place the mast fore or after depending on the rig. I had two separate masts that I u...

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

Finally pulled out a tape measure on the sail/jib I'm using, and it's 83sq. ft. as opposed to the 102sq. ft. that the CR13 plan actually calls for. Turns out even that is too much for me to single hand in winds over 20mph. It's a fun ride with two people, and the bigger sail would probably be a blas...

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

Aha! You do have a sail section, I didn't see it when I went looking earlier. Maybe add it to the product section menu on the side bar there? Anywho, I already have the spar set for the gunter rig made. Also I have a sail set very similar to the one on the CR13 plans, it's from a snark Wildflower. U...

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

That's right, I forget you guys are just up North of me. Got a suggestion for a sail maker? I have the plan for the Gunter rig for the OT16, but haven't decided on a place to order from yet.

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

You're probably using fast cure epoxy a lot more often than I do. The window for getting the top coat on there would be a lot shorter. With the slow cure, I could still scratch the top coat off with my fingernail a couple days after painting. After a week, it's more likely to tear my fingernail than...

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

I still can't believe you were able to build and flip that hull in that tiny little space. I felt like I was building a ship in a bottle with my CR13, but you're on a whole new level in there. Great looking work too!

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

I didn't go with a primer, just a 150 grit sanding and rustoleum top coat. Takes a few days to set up, but after that it's very solid. The main thing is getting it on there as soon as the epoxy is sandable so that it bonds. It's all slow cure epoxy so it's almost a week before full cure sets in. I w...

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

Thank you all, it's been a fun build. I would have posted and documented as I went, but with the tabernacle changes I was keeping it a secret until I knew if it would work as planned. And it does work. Not only can I raise and lower the mast while on the water, it's also very easy to step the mast o...

Re: CR13 build...I have altered the plan.

I think the internet is going to force me to stop here for the day. Been fighting the image host because of the ddos attack that's hitting the eastern US. Here's the last pic I was able to get cropped to size: http://i.imgur.com/XbO84C8.jpg Once I upload more I'll show the rigging and some floating ...
