Re: PNW CX 25

The solution I use for my projects is a set of roller cradles. Was able to work on a large 23' Uniflite hull in a typical 2 car garage with a 7' door with them. Best part is, you can roll the thing all around by hand which makes it easier to get lighting in the right spots or to get closer to an out...

Re: Custom Builder List

The opposite actually.

Most that met the 'expert builder' criteria ended up earning the discount. Thus it will be a possible easy pathway to find the right people.

Re: Custom Builder List

Maybe going through the records for those of us with the Custom Builder discount, that should flesh out a list pretty quickly.

Re: Nina 22

I'd throw something in as a builder/owner of an LB22. The trim angle is sensitive to weight in this boat. Running an outboard that's larger than recommended causes some trim angle issues. Invariably, builders want to stretch the limits of the design. To hang 50hp off the back of the boat will make i...

I feel as though you should skip your trip sailing and just keep working on the boat.

Excited to see how sea trials go.

Hah, moral of the story:

Yes, his waterline may be accurate, but my skills as a painter may not be as good! My errors make me check the waterline, not his.

Re: ST21 "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

I'm a fan of painting the bottom itself all the way through antifouling. This will (likely) be the last time you'll be able to paint her bottom down-handed, so use it to advantage. I like to paint to the chines, then do the chine to waterline area once she's been in the drink once to confirm your pl...

Re: ST21 "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Parts of that explanation are correct. Lift from the prop, water coming from the tunnel is directed downward slightly, etc. There is also a lack of forward lift due to the fine sections, dead flat keel sections, etc. The issue at hand with some of Atkin's designs followed that these boats were desig...

Re: ST21 "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

No worries.

If you're a 15kts or less guy, you probably won't need them. If you want to squeeze extra speed out of it, the spray rails appear to be invaluable.
