    Thanks Phil! I don't like the format but I guess I can just go into Tapatalk and find the thread I want when I want to post a photo. A lot easier than the dopey method i was using!

    Default Antipodean Boats Connection

    I'm already thinking about how the new dink needs a rig before I've finished dealing with the old rig. Something simple, short spars and not many of them, low centre of effort sail, simple to rig, stow and sail.

    My one experience of trying the trainer kite demonstrates that it has a low windage window. So I'm wondering about Phil's suggestions and kinda thinking a short stayless mast, maybe a boomless lateen or with boom like a Sunfish/Sailfish. Possibly a boomless dipping lateen sail with the yard not the full length of the head. It would ideally have both mast and yard shorter than the hull length, hence a very small sail.

    Thoughts? I think I have some spare sticks in the loft and would like to sew a simple sail myself.

    You ever tried tacking a lateen? A boomless lug is what you want. I know it's a bit pedestrian to us lot, but it's weird enough outside of our little circle.

    Not this one I hope. I am amused. But, it may work, sort of, though hard to imagine.

    Great job, hard to pick the scale , but nice art.
    We have a copper rooster made the same way, I put it on a flitch of wood and we move it around the property. Where's the surfing chicken now?

    Okay, I tried Geftb's method and got the boat picture from Files on the phone. It wouldn't access Gallery. Then I noticed that it would access Camera so I chose that, took a photo and there it is. But, the camera's photo files are pretty big so it took a while to upload. I'll see if it's easy to reduce photo file size.

    Looks like it's tied there expecting to float. I guess it's an old steel or f/g hull that's been clad.

    Tyre swans used to be around in plague proportions but they're rare now. A used tyre, sliced, turned inside out so that it resembles a swan, painted white and planted in the garden with gnomes and cement Aborigines etc. Trust me, you DON'T want one.

    Although, since you have a corrugated iron rooster . ...

    Good one Phil! I do love their little concrete pad feet....

    ahhh, no , never seen one . Coconut shell butterflies on houses used to be a thing. I could bring them to New Zild.

    and its a corrugated copper rooster oil have you know, might be made from an old hot water cylinder or summat. We call it Rick, I'll take a photo for you on friday.

    on another note and I might be duplicating, the royal spoonbills have arrived, I saw 3 last week. real ones , quite odd... never seen one before . phone to telescope photo attempt , ahh never mind..

    it was quite funny seeing them chasing the flocka ducks away, wandering around like dudes with metal detectors

    No idea where it is. Wouldn’t surprise me if a Kiwi did it though.

    I'm not always a fan of corrugated iron stuff or salvage sculpture made just for the sake of it, but sometimes they look really cool.

    You do know I will have my revenge ....

    The letterbox photo didn't come out! Rats! I'll take another though. Now, it IS made from an old hot water system, and other things.

    I do want to see the rooster ...

    I thought I'd seen it with a waiheke island reference on faceplant, so I assumed it was here.
