Re: Finally Does It

Your boom looks pretty cool are there plans for it or did you just wing it ? Bought the plans from Mick from ROAM who also built one. The plans give you a step by step process to build one and were easy to follow. The booms are not engineered but are being used on 5 cats - the biggest being ROAM's....

Re: Finally Does It

Dazza The boards, by and large, are not mine but they are a mixture of bought and homemade ranging from 1 metre down to (believe it or not) thumbnail size to get into those hard to get to places.. Some are stiff, some are flexible (Dura-Block, pieces of 10mm foam with velcro stuck to them), some are...

Re: Finally Does It

We've been having a little trouble with paint flashing off quickly in this tropical heat so we had a go at cooling the base before mixing. 742 Cooling Highbuild Base before mixiing.jpg Seems to have worked a treat. After sitting in the ice bath for an hour or so it brought the temperature down from ...

Re: Finally Does It

The flare above the water line is real nice too! Mick Thanks Mick The "flare", which is well above waterline, adds a huge amount of volume to the inside of the hulls and yet keeps the wetted area relatively lean. It's been an absolute pain to fair as it changes shape along the full length of the hu...

Mainsail single line reefing.

Most of my sailing experience has been with "slab" type reefing. Very effective when you have a crew to coordinate the process of mainsheet, halyard (at the mast) and reefing line (boom gooseneck end). With the right crew we could put a reef in in about 30 seconds. I went for a sail on a monohull ab...
