Re: Richards gt 27

Thanks guys, taped inside seems yesterday, will flip her over and start on the bum today. Mucking around doing fillets and tape on the D5 made me think about the size of the gt27 (started to get a little scary :!: ) theres 634metres of biaxial tape alone in the build, quite a lot of them are 3 layer...

Re: Richards gt 27

Plans arrived yesterday for the D5, so thought I would start knocking it together. Did not take long to cut out all the pieces, bit of a fiddle trying to stitch her up but with a lot of swearing and a few (quite a few) beers she came into shape (well close enough). http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/...

Re: OB17 Underway downunder.

In the 70's & 80's I lived in the North west (Pilbara & Kimberlies) we used to fish the Degray river and would pull some nice barra. Used to also get lots of Mangrove Jack in most of the coastal creeks they are also great fighters and good eating, but nothing beats the taste of Barra. We were back a...

Jacques, Don't laugh! gt27

Just cut out all the bottom panels, splicing starts this arvo. OK which edge is stitched together to form the keel? (I can hear you laughing already :oops: )
Is it where the baseline is drawn or is it the other edge with the large curve?
Thanks (I think!)

Re: Richards gt 27

Got the dimensions worked out ok, just took a bit of tooing & throwing over the net. The plans seem to be missing bits and pieces of info, looking at the history of the plans development I can see why there are a few holes but if Jacques dosen't mind answering questions then I don't mind asking :lol...
