    Re: Dinghy with removeable transom

    That's a great idea! I didn't consider that an existing boat could be ... retrofitted. Do you have any pictures or details of how you restructured the transom?

    Re: Deck paint testimonial:

    I would point out that relatively few people are walking on that paint. That being said, you could counter-point that the surface was in all probability minimally prepped. Very well. You win this...
  5. Wooden & Traditional Boats in the Wild?

    Re: Mast lights for a small schooner

    In the US the CFRs cite the ABYC codes which require electrified lamps for this purpose, so anything I do with oil would have to be a secondary. I recall the CFRs being fairly specific with regard to...

    What size area do you have to work with on the dock? This may be a bit outside of the scope of concept but... Harbor Freight offers a mobile carport/garage that is 17 ft. x 10 ft. (they also have a...

    Re: Boat Launch Invitation

    Gorgeous! I love the cream of the sails, and such a smart profile. Very becoming. I can't tell from the photo if you use hoops, lacing, or do you brail to the mast?

    Re: Mast lights for a small schooner

    Zane: This is a great solution, and aside from using light boards is the only solution that really keeps all lights visible when the uppers are set. I might still opt for an all-around white on the...

    Hello all,

    Long time lurker thought I would finally sign on.
