    Wish I could have been there! I spent last weekend at the Seattle Wooden Boat Festival, much of it judging the Quick & Daring boatbuilding contest.

    It was a pleasure seeing such a cool project in the flesh.

    our google links are not working for me.
    I have started using this: Postimage.org — free image hosting / image upload it seems OK so far.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    how about this? is it showing up as a photo for you? on your FB page if you rt click directly on the image on your home page it gives an option to "copy link address" I think that may be what you did above Gary... instead if you place the cursor over the image and left click FB will display a larger version of the image then you can rt click and "copy image" then come here to WBF and hit paste ...

    NICE anchor.

    It was great seeing her in person. So many lovely details! I hope to see some sailing photos soon!

    With Macs, a single finger tap on the track pad generates a more traditional mouse left click, whereas two finger tap generates a right click.

    I would be interested in more information about the gaff support/crutch you made - does this take strain off the topping lift? How do you keep it from rolling off the boom?

    And I'll incidentally echo what others have rightfully stated - that is quite a beautiful build, well done!

    I use it to keep the gaff from flopping around and damaging the spars, especially nice when the sail is flaked and you're ready to put a cover on.

    The Classic Boat Museum in Cowes, Isle of Wight is hard at work building their own Unaboat, Vigia. The original was built in 1872. Efforts to restore the original were stopped when the exiting material proved to be in such terrible shape. Vigia claims to be the oldest small craft registered in Britain. She ended her life as a sloop rig with a glassed in cabin. She's 21 feet by eight feet- four inches for her beam.

    After some consideration and some feedback from the show, I decided to repaint the coaming a more reflective color. Since the coaming is a multi-layered laminate of 1/8 inch marine plywood, i was fearful of delamination.

    I quite liked the black, but it will stay cooler this way.

    Just received notice that the sail is finished and ready to be picked up. I'll head over on Friday and pick it up. Might be able to launch this year.....

    Took your advice and reworked the flukes for more grabbing power... How's it look?
