Re: Just saw that the Tahoe “Jade” is for sale in UK

Would that be the "I don't want to sell it" price?

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl,

Grounding on boats is a challenge, get it wrong maybe something doesn't work or corrosion sets it. This article on grounding might be helpful. http://www.westmarine.com/WestAdvisor/M ... ng-Systems

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I have been sanding for flatness in preparation for the next planking layer, belt sander and then an air file. It works ok until it doesn't. My air compressor says intermittent air file work is ok. Now that I understand how much is too much for intermittent I can go ahead and replace the smoked the ...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Carl, thanks for the encouragement. I finished the second planking layer today and started the third layer on the bottom. With two layers on the entire hull, I think it would actually float! I'm anxious to start on something that will show.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I’m a little further along on the port side, two layers complete with the first of the 3rd layer on the bottom planking.

The red circle is about where the chine will vanish as it approaches the stem.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

The first layer of side planking runs over the first layer of bottom planking and begins the second layer of bottom planking at the stem. The second layer of side planking is complete and begins the third layer of bottom planking. This photo shows all three layers. Layer one bottom planking is light...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

These will normally be covered by cushions so I don't see any real need to go to the extra trouble of veneering for those surfaces. I agree. The cabinetry was very smooth/slick on my sailboat. It wasn't an issue to sit on the cushion and have them slide around, but after a few hour sail the cushion...

Re: Jet Bullet

And when the "swabs" walk, they say "port, port, port, starboard, port". (I remember a sign behind a little white picket fence in Norfolk that read "dogs and sailors keep off the grass, but that's a different story.) Its "green means GO dad" and "red right ret...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hey Carl, The sketch helps to explain your thinking. I don't think the cantilever will give you a problem once epoxied into place and having an angle/backup plan is good insurance. A continuous hinge (piano hinge) would also improve the support along the edge preventing the cantilever from deflectin...
