Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

It's Hopetown in the Abacos. And the lighthouse is the worlds last clockwork powered kerosene lit light. It is all cast iron, made in the UK in late 1880's and floats on a bath of mercury. You (I) can push the light with one finger even though it weighs 4000lbs (I think) We have been here many times...

Re: Question for Richard Woods

But I am! Sorry I haven't been active here for months. As Fall guy says we are currently living on board our Skoota 28 powercat in he Bahamas, so internet is sometimes sketchy. It is our third visit here in Skoota. It was built in the PNW and we cruised there for 3 years before trucking it to Texas....

Re: North Carolina Build

As I said earlier, I haven't drawn the Skoota 32 for building in plywood. There are a few building Skoota 32's, including Fallguy and a couple of others in the USA. One is in regular contact with me, but has yet to start the build, the other sent me photos of his first hulls a few weeks ago. You all...

Re: North Carolina Build

"Interesting" to see the photos. Especially as I haven't drawn a Skoota 32 in plywood, only in foam sandwich.

Re: PX14 Deckjig question

My apologies for the confusion. Yes the drawing is at the top right. And yes in mm, but only half widths. Ie distance out from the hull centreline on each side of the boat. The bow is to the left. The width dimensions are 500 apart, hence "All 500", except for the ones mentioned as "horizontal" ie 1...

Re: Building a Pixie 14 or Quattro 14, 16

My apologies for not being on this forum very often the last few weeks. We were home in the UK sorting out builders and new designs. Then last week we flew back to our Skoota 28 powercat in Indiantown, Fl. Right now we are in the "work yard" prepping the boat for another winter in the Bahamas. We mo...

Re: Plywood vs Laminated solid wood

anything under 2in wide is good, the more laminations the stronger and less likely to warp but more work of course

remember the leading edge and the first 1/3rd of the chord are the most important to get right. The trailing edge can be 1/8in wide. bevel the end 45deg if you get a hum
