Might I ask specifically what the route would be?
My PFD has a zip pocket that I always keep a whistle in. Three short blasts is a recognized distress signal, just in case you can't get back in the boat.
I wonder how many members of this forum are saddened by his passing and will always remember him with gratitude for his life of service?
Christians already have national holidays in many countries that supposedly separate church from state. To my knowledge that's more than most (any) other religions get in the Western world. The poor...
Tilt, thanks for the vid from Dr Caldicott. Hadn't seen it before.
Bon voyagee, Carl. And thanks for your contribution.
Second the motion for screws. Easy to remove, reposition, replace, etc. Yes, drill pilot holes, every time. I'd also stay with the 3/8" for the bottom. You'll be using inferior materials so you don't...
How long it lasts will have a lot to do with how long you leave it in the water or outside exposed to the elements. It may not be very pretty but it could still last a long time if you keep it dry,...
I wouldn't call glassing the cockpit overkill. I glassed mine. It gets a lot of traffic.
The cat was driving. The car may have crashed. The cat may or may not have been killed.
Plenty of Oughtred fans on this forum. Hopefully someone will offer some further advice with the plans.
Welcome to the forum. I'd imagine if that info were given on the plans it would be included in some obvious way for you to see and understand. So if you can't see it on the plans then its not...
Would you like a free lunch with your free will?
Imagine how much stuffing it would hold. Don't forget the gravy.
No idea. May we assume the plans are no help? Do you have any plans at all with a sail plan that would give you a clue, and if not are you prepared to buy some? BTW, that's a seriously impressive...
I have to say I was instantly pleased with myself the moment I fired up the motor. Its been a really fun and useful boat so far.
Ted Brewer's on line primer answers these questions and many others. http://www.tedbrewer.com/yachtdesign.html
Relieved to hear it ended well.
Congrats, Tar D.
Correct. If there were a clear thickener we would all be using it.
More time well spent.
Worth watching. Thanks, really enjoyed it.
So please move it to The Bilge.

Meanwhile, north of the border, the Canadian Football League season finale is this afternoon. My team, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are both playing in and hosting the 101st Grey Cup game against the...
That's a very practical looking boat. Especially like the inboard jib and big foredeck.
Rudder, daggerboard, oars, can be removed before lifting. I built an 11x5 foot power skiff years ago. I had no need to be especially weight conscious so it came in on the heavy side. Two people could...
I am guilty of thread drift. But the OP does say he wants to handle a Pacific North West chop. But he has also stipulated 11 feet max length and light enough for two persons to lift on and off a...
18 feet? Of course, I'd want it wider, too, at that length. I guess that's not much of a pram anymore.:ycool:
I like it, too. It would be nice to see a longer version, too.
You can strip plank just about anything.
That's it? That's all we get?
I'm a little slow sometimes...
I'm officially impressed! :ycool:
Nope, you have to go inland over the coastal mountains for the freezing part. I spent most of my life with those very cold winters and am glad I no longer have to endure them. But here where the...

That can be a life saving sort of chicken. And you'll still enjoy the Alpine lakes better in the biggest boat you can lift and carry.
This should keep you out of trouble for a while. Congrats, Duncan.
Richard you are very artistic! Yes, prams are great load carriers. Carrying as much crew and supplies in as short as possible length is what they do best. Would you agree? I wouldn't be surprised if...
I see the smiley face, chuckt, so I assume some humour is intended. But for the record, kayaks are warm, dry, and arguably the safest small boat ever created. If they were not so the Inuit who...
I'm assuming the Dart design is Paul Fisher's. I like his kayaks although there is a prejudice in my part of the world that an Englishman cannot be trusted to design one. I think our weather is quite...
A kayak is a very personal one man boat with qualities no other type has. But many find out that kayaking isn't for them only after they build or buy one. Pardon my asking, but are you a kayaker...
