Re: 20' Sooty Tern
I love this thread already!
I just got back from a weekend trip through the San Juan islands in mine. 63-1/2 miles, split nearly 50/50 rowing and sailing. There's no other sail and oar boat I'd rather have.
Vernon, I'd recommend against cutting any flats on your molds at all. Wait to do the final lining off and plank spiling with battens on your actual three-dimensional building jig, not on your 2-D drawings. That way you will be more likely to get the fairest eye-sweet plank runs.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
