Re: Silent Wish New Build FS14

1. Yes, you can do that but do not raise the transom. It must fit the outboard.

2. OK but double the number of layers.

Re: Extending C21 in shorter sheet plywood

I would do what Browndog proposes: scale all dimensions by 10%. For the plywood, you will have to redo the nesting for some parts but that is not difficult. For the bracket, we do not sell plans, it is a liability problem. You could find a local welder to build one. Dimensions are available online i...

Re: Retiring and/or Snowbirding on the water

Impressive, I did not know that one. A friend of mine (same yachtclub), Willy de Roos, was the first yacht sailing the North West passage in a steel ketch designed by Van der Wielen. I believe, the very first Trismus still holds the record for the most southern cruise by a sailboat. Patrick Van God ...

Re: Retiring and/or Snowbirding on the water

I saw that serie. I tried, with two friends, to sail from Belgium to Svalbard (= Spitzberg) but we never made it. After 4 days of bad weather, beating against the wind, cold, wet, we turned around. The Trisalu is only one of a larger serie of boats based on the Trismus. About 500 total were built. V...

Re: C21 frame

Two questions concerning my frames ( frame E ) See photo : 1)Other boat builders are cutting the frame for glueing the stringers with the bellow frame ( see picture line A). What is the best solution ? Cutting or leaving it in one peace ? You can do it either way but I prefer in one piece. 2) there...

They recently sold their Trisalu 37 sailboat,
The Trisalu 37 was designed by a friend, Jean Pierrre Brouns. It is smaller but very close to the boat I sailed for 10 years. It is based on the same lines, same concept, same box keel. It is an ideal boat for sailing around the world.

Re: RB 14

You can even simulate the planked deck using sheets of 6mm plywood as we did with Kyla's RB14. https://forums.bateau2.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=62658&start=200 See here for how we did it. Thanks, excellent link. When I say that the deck is not developable, it is almost true. The deck is close to be ...

Re: RB 14

The deck is not entirely developable, see page 5 of the building notes. Most builders use strips to get the classic planked look. We explain in detail, with pictures, how to do it the JA18 thread on this forum.

Re: DE 23 Build - NZ

BTW, the green boat on the previous page looks very much like one of my designs. The sheer line is unusual, I recognize that. Back to the 8 mm difference. Looking at the pictures, I see that you already installed the stringers and it looks perfect. Could it be that the notch for the MW frame is cut ...
