Thanks for the opinions on the seatback guys. :D I am leaning towards no sebacks with padded life lines to be safe since I will be using the boat in Florida. Summer storms with high winds are very unpredictable in Florida and they may try to flip the boat before me knowing. The seatback might make it harder to straigthen the boat if the seat goes under water. I think looks wise the seatback make the boat more complete. Just my opinion. :D

Now I have to concentrate on the house move. I am getting Karenina to its temporary house (My dad's house) unitil I get my new house on June 9th. Here is a picture in the flat bed trailer.

Yes, go for the straps. I have sailed many boats without seat backrests but fitted with padded lines. It is safe.

Hey Stuff. The only sailboat I've ever owned had seats like the AD's. We should have a discussion about the AD cockpit. You asked about the mast I ordered. I ordered per plan. But you will need to go through the process of laying it out until you get a better understanding of what you need i.e. How high is the Dwyer mast step? + How high to my mast partner + how high to the boom and so on. I didn't completely understand what I wanted or why I wanted it until I did the layout. (my mast step might be an inch or two taller than yours so I have to measure what I've built)

Love the picture. Looks good. Only 16' but these things are big for their age. I meant to build my windows with no mullion at "B" frame like you did. I had no cutouts at that stage and glued the cabin panels to "B" frame, and filleted them before I realized my mistake.

Bondo I like what you did more than the actual plan. It looks more completed from the cabin.

Finally after 3 months working on my house I can work on Karenina. I'm going to sand the cockpit and the outside of the cabin to get her ready for fiberglass. Pictures coming soon.

That's great to see you're back at it. I think you were wondering about the spi pole so copy these pictures. You can see the 2" aluminum bow sprit in its retracted position. Off to the side of the companionway, as high as possible. Just below the frames.

Actually I was referring to the mullion in your window but the picture of the spi was very helpful. Now I have a better idea on how to make the hole. BTW please don't remove your pictures. I use them for references all the time. Also they inspire me to keep working hard on Karenina.

That's nice. I like that you sandwich the plexi between two frames. Is more water tight that way. I might do the same.
