    I've considered that too and maybe I'd do that next time. Using Sika or Fixtech, it should be fine. I wouldn't try it with mastic.

    What sort of goop?

    Good day on the water. Towed a dive boat boat in this morning with six POBs. Various exercises afterwards such as holding station off a starboard lateral mark just using throttles only. Good fun.

    I decided to make a model using MDF. Came out OK. 4 of the shroud plates are a bit more complicated because they flare outwards on one edge. I'll have to cut a slot, or else an overlength hole and fill the gap with epoxy or something I guess.

    Fixed a leak in the Sabre, sneaky delaminated corner.

    Flipped hull, a touch up with sand paper, painted with 2 pot including centreboard and rudder.

    Sailing tomorrow in a club boat.

    That's tricky! I think your two-piece solution will be fine. I use the Fixtech that comes in a blue tube. Sika would also be fine but I can't remember which one.

    Thanks. You think that's tricky! I also made templates for plates to go under the deck where there's the added complications of ribs and bulkheads and all sorts of funny angles and getting in and out of the boat to remeasure and recut every one of 12 plates at least 3 times.

    A couple of years ago I let off an old smoke flare in the yard at home. It filled the yard and the neighbouring yards with smoke. I thought someone would call the fire brigade or at least complain but a neighbour just said 'we've known you for quite a long time ....' so it was okay.

    My son and his GF and some mates are in Nepal at the moment. Got off a flight into some village and went to watch the next plane taking off. It crashed into a helicopter. Scary.

    I have to learn to say no. All this week I am looking after a neighbour's dog, so no chance of getting away for a few days on Romana until next week when the weather looks rubbish. Today, walking the dog along the beach, watching yachts heading south to KI with 12-15 knots up their clackers. Torture I tells ya. Torture.

    It's a fairly big dog with boundless energy and the boat is small. And the dog's owners would strangle me if a shark ate their beloved Jango.

    Go ahead, pun on 'boundless'. I know you want to.

    Recently the Kiwis posted an image of a yacht made from corrugated iron and called it art. This is art:

    It's the right colour and shape for one left out in the sun but there's no blacking and no smell so I'm not convinced it's real.

    It's really real. I don't know what it is, but it's real, whatever it is.

    I did this also, for one of my plates, but only because the deck underneath it is rotten.

    But it's a good idea anyway. There really isn't any value in screwing down the plates when you have modern products that will glue them down and stay flexible.

    Cheers,
    John.

    Now I'm wondering whether to screw or glue mine. I'm leaning very much toward screws as I've never found a goop in a tube that actually stays flexible and stays stuck. Screws and butyl tape is my plan.
