Anyone have advice on sail making? Boogie and I were discussing it and while we get the "follow the pattern" method it seems too simple. Before I start binging boob-tube vids, what are the major issues we need to be prepared for?

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Finally having a nice sunny day. Applied Total Boat nonskid to the cabin top
Second picture down- is that a BENCH GRINDER in the middle of the yard? 8O They make portable ones you know! :wink: :D

You seem to have moved your boat in a shady part of the yard, hope it stays safe! :lol:

:lol: Yes it is!! It used to belong to my father. It's been around for years. I was going to mount it to my work bench but found it works nicely as a portable unit.

:lol: It's a shady location for sure. I think all of the shadows are because of the sun's declination during the fall/winter months. The boat is just a few feet away from its original location. Now that we've sprung forward it should change.

Hi George!

I've been looking around a bit, but the problem is I'm using Jacques's modified Chinese lug sail design. Hard to find one used.

It looks real good each step forward gets it closer to splash time. I put a bunch of FOAM in that space in the bow it cut down on the space in the cabin I might take it out the space might be nice to have in all the years I have run this boat i never needed that floation it seamed like a good idea back then.
