Re: AR15 in Ohio

Hi. I recently looked at ordering from Dwyer so I'll venture an answer. You can order any length up to the maximum length they give. The maximum, at least for the recommended profile for the SB18 mast, was 30 feet. The prices in their online catalog are "per foot". As for the mainsheet tackle, I kno...

Re: sailboat traveler

Glad to be of help Dave but you aren't understanding the traveller 100% yet ... not that I do too though I will say I am few percentage points ahead of you. To be completely honest, I do not use my traveller yet except to hook my foot under when hiked out, or to grab while recovering from a capsize....

Re: sailboat traveler

Hi Dave. I'd love to see pictures of your boat. Here is a picture of my traveller. The car, turning blocks and cam cleats are commercial parts I bought off eBay but the track itself is just stainless steel tubing I got at a local store. I got the thickest tubing I could find 1.7mm if memory serves m...

Re: SB18 - Where to splice the mast together?

Thanks Evan. The joint is located 8-1/4" above the mast partner (SB18-mast-length - H16-mast-length - Mast-partner-location = 357-5/8" - 312" - 37-3/8" = 8-1/4"). How about I add the 8-1/4" at the top of the mast so the splice will then be exactly at the mast partner? Being exactly at the mast partn...

Re: SB18 - Where to splice the mast together?

Thanks guys. The mast is aluminum though I don't now what alloy it is. I've seen Hobies sail and the masts are pretty flexible. Yeah putting the splice on the bottom makes sense, extra weight at the bottom and less bending, mostly compression.

SB18 - Where to splice the mast together?

The Hobie 16 mast is 26', the SB18 mast is 30' . I was able to get a 5'+ section from a broken mast. Where would be the best place to splice the two together: on the top or at the bottom? Also advice on how to make the splice would be most helpful too. I realize this is an odd question. The best thi...

Re: SB18 in the Philippines

Hi Mark. Come visit the http://www.pinoyboats.org - this is the website of the Philippine Home Boatbuilder's Yacht Club (PHBYC). There are active discussions on where you can get materials and equipment. The biggest problem is really getting a mast which is particularly true for the VG23. Currently,...

Re: CR13 - Semi self-bailing

Thanks Jacques. All of that is doable but correct me if I'm wrong, wouldn't we need to also add floors and cockpit sole to the chine level with foam underneath?

CR13 - Semi self-bailing

I've been asked this question quite a few time, "Can the CR13 be made self-bailing?". I've always answered that you guys said it was too small a boat. The thing is the question keeps popping up. So the idea came up: then how about semi self-bailing? By "semi", I mean there would still be some water ...

Re: SB18 - Lady C.

Hi Yves. I tried to post a comment on your blog a few weeks ago but for some reason I couldn't. I'm glad you created a build thread here.

That's a nice looking bulb keel strut.
