Re: Sarah 41

Hi Dean In my honest opinion I wouldn't bother with that idea. Bridegedeck slap usually only happens when you're under way and the wash under the bridgedeck is coming every which way not just from the sea passing through the tunnel but also the reflection of those waves hitting the inside of the two...

Re: Sarah 41

I know it looks like a palace but..... this was last winter As we say in Australia - "Yeah....Nah" That looks way too cold for this black duck. This past winter I think I brought out a jumper to wear for about a week for an hour or so each day just to ward off that early morning "chill". In fact, I...

Re: Sarah 41

Boatshed??? You and I have entirely different ideas of what constitutes a boat shed. That's a mansion compared to my steel framed fabric covered hot house which, when I put it up, thought was pretty flash for a backyard builder. Very well done indeed. Looks like you have "plans" for the shed once yo...

Re: Piston Broke

Ah...another Big Wave Rider boom.

I'm looking forward to taking mine out of "storage" and putting it to use. Sooner than later I hope.

The boat's looking fantastic.

Re: Sarah 41

Damn...that's one fine "barn". Beats the temporary shelter (aka the hot house) I've been working in. Enjoy the clean floors while you can. By the time you finish dripping epoxy, bog, paint etc etc on it, you won't recognise it from these photos. Have fun and I hope you manage to get back into it wit...

Re: Piston Broke

Huge congratulations....looks amazing.

Would have been a huge sigh of relief once your baby was released from those slings and was finally sitting in her element.

2 thumbs up....

Re: Piston Broke

I've had one drama after another with painting mainly due to the weather up here. But the final topcoat shoot was done last week. Still non-skid and antifoul to do but at least I finally feel like I'm making headway. I'll post photos shortly. By the way...Peter Nicholson is one very very knowledgeab...

Re: Easy Sarah Questions

Finally, I think it is clear from my previous messages that I'm looking for an alternative to ply (or wood) core, a synthetic core. Why would you now propose foam? You previously said foam goes mushy? In the first post I said I'd rather spend more time and money... My original reply was based on th...
