  1. Re: Concern for The East Antarctic Ice Sheet…….

    Interesting timeframe observation. A scientific study may take two to five years for planning, finding funding, implementation, data processing and publishing. Then one to two years for peer review...

    Re: Building the CoPogy 18

    Nice work, Alex :) Will you be running with the motor "down" all the time, then? Is there room for it to tilt up at all? I probably missed that discussion earlier.

    Re: Curtain Rail

    Is that a mounting flange on each side? I've seen similar track at box stores for bathroom shower curtains.

  7. Poll: Re: Deckhead paint - Gloss, satin or matte..???

    I guess much of the decision rests on whether you want to sail or want to take on a major restoration.

    For the sake of ease of maintenance you may think about painting most of the inside of the Mirror. Leave perhaps the seat tops and daggerboard case trim bright and paint the rest. But the most...

    Re: 1967 Danish Folkeboot restoration

    Hi Erik,
    Since it sounds like you're "drysailing" the boat and she won't have a chance to sit in the water and allow the planks to swell I would be more inclined to use a non-hardening caulk....
