There are no downsides. They'll last longer than the boat, never leak, no worries about crevice corrosion.

You could use carbon fibre, but for a cruising boat, I don't really see the value over fibreglass. You might save a couple of kilo's.
Thank you for the H O. It’s been a very exciting experience building and I can only imagine looking back as others are at the stage I was at 2 years ago. Looking forward there are unknowns such as building techniques that I’m not familiar with. I am confident with the right amount of research and help from people like you that I’ll be able to turn out a quality product. Any techniques about composites I welcome.

Aren't the chainplates of an Easy bolted to the sides of the hull?
Not a good place to be fairing in 10mm of fibreglass behind a window .

Depending on the design it might be necessary to adjust the position of a window. Not really a big deal.

The advantages outweigh that by a big margin, IMO.

Of course I’m not at that stage yet but I’m planning for it now so when I get there I’ll be ready. Thank for your HO’s.
I am also looking at a carbon fiber tube for the shaft that ties the rudders together. The cost of aluminum +modifications vs carbon fiber is a wash but the weight savings if huge.
Dazza, your boat is looking great. Do you have a launch date yet?

Hi Dean

Have set so many launch dates now ,its becoming bit of a joke .The short answer , this year...... maybe!

We considered building composite chain plates , if your boat hasn't been designed that way its a big call to change it .

Plywood works differently to composite materials, the glass on the surface of composites is much thicker to give strength , the glass on

plywood is only to keep water out .

The angle the shroud will pull on a single sided composite chain plate is crucial ,get it wrong and it will look like its being peeled off the boat.

Using a bulkhead type composite change plate will alleviate this , but that's getting to far from the design.

Stick to the design ,its that way for a reason.

That's 2 down - well done. I presume the bridgedeck is next on the build list?

Apologies for not being able to make the 28th - not exactly a weekend trip away for me.

Good luck with the move.

I would love to see you and pick your brain. You probably have a wealth of knowledge I could learn from.
I need to build a shed to assemble the boat so it’s on to building. I can build the bulkheads and forebear and bridge deck in the building I’m in now so there is still a lot I can do until the shop is up.
I am thinking about coming to Auzzyland maybe next year th visit some builders. Would like to see your boat.
