I forget who signature it is, but some here had “I sanded till a boat was visible”. Even the best builder will have areas th...

Re: Seeking advice on which boat to build

Including CNC, sail, EMC paint, all hardware, extra FG and epoxy my cost is under $3k total. Build time for someone not paralyzed by perfection is less that 120hr.

Re: Threaded Insert rivets

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

As I stated previously... this is a legacy build. A part of you that is being given to an area you care very deeply about.SkinnyD will be the tool to ensure the future for the next generations of Noosa visitors. If she needs more protection from the universe, you will do it. How could you not make t...

Now inquiring brain cells are confused. Can you quite a few of the voices in my head with some examples of the issues identified? I can imagine some concerns around wear areas, but that's just ... wear. I can't imagine how poor Fuzzy's head is pounding right not now as he considers all the possible ...
