You must have been near Charleston. That guy was a favorite “end of race” for us.
I’m about 25 miles west of Beaufort, North Carolina — maybe he’s doing the great loop! :doh:

what is the weirdest boat you've seen?

Re: SOBX Little Big Boat GV15

I feel I've reached something of a milestone. I’ve finished the inside fiberglass and the next step is to place the stringers and frames but I need to make those layout decisions that determine the placement of the under-sole chase tubes. 7563 I’ve posted some question in the technical help sub-foru...

GV15 design assumptions & layout questions

I’ve finished the inside fiberglass and the next step is to place the stringers and frames but before I do that I need to make the layout decisions that determine placement of under-sole chase tubes. I’ve read elsewhere that the LCG is typically about 42% of the DWL. Using the fore-aft length of the...

On the SK14 I was able to add both the port and starboard cloth pieces one right after the other since I could just reach in from the sides when applying the epoxy. Thats not going to be pos...

Re: SOBX Little Big Boat GV15

A couple questions for the team: The plans don’t seem to call for any cloth on the inside of the transom, just two layer outside plus several layers of tape on the seams both inside and out. Did I miss something or should I just go ahead with a layer of 12 oz. bias? I’m ready for the inside cloth an...
