  9. Re: Hull Repair Assistance- 78 Ft sailing vessel.

    You could build a brand new steel boat that size, for a lot less than repairing that wood boat.

    Do you have the book "boatbuilding"?
  13. Re: Minoqua and boat on page 53 of Boatbuilding the same?

    Hold on..... Hold on, lets back up a few steps.
    The print is small but the MINOCQUA is 8 feet 8 inch beam and the Chappelle sharpie is 7 FEET 8 inch beam.
    That would be a big difference.

  14. Re: Minoqua and boat on page 53 of Boatbuilding the same?

    The draft is only a 5 inch difference and maybe it is that outside ballast that makes it sit lower in the water.
    The Chapelle modified sharpie drawing does not show any ballast information.
  15. Minoqua and boat on page 53 of Boatbuilding the same?

    MINOCQUA designed by Thomas Clapham and the v bottomed sharpie on page 52 of Howard I. Chapelles "Boatbuilding" look like the same boat.

    Only the rigs are different. They both have that clipper...

    A stantion and line is useless if you really want to have something to grab on to. Your balance and life depend on it.

    Re: 1954 Trojan Sea Breeze

    Take an ice pick and see if you can push it through any suspect boards.
    You will have your answer if that board needs replacing.
    You are going to need a large shop vacuum. You will use it a lot.

    Re: Wittholz Corvus vs. Bolger Catfish

    A skeg is under the "run" of the keel.
    A keel could be as minimal as a wide plank running fore and aft the length of the hull.
    A skeg is also aft of centerboard,fin or keel. Donald Branscom
