Re: Klondike Build

Thanks Chris!

Will have some pics to post and maybe a video clip to boot... I'm trying to stay focused on the process and push away the negative "what if's".

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks Rich we'll keep you in the loop...you're just down the road from us and closer than we are to Stockton for the launch. Bill, you and Lauren would be welcome any time... if you were to visit after we got settled at the Marina we'd be able to give proper dockside hospitality and maybe spend som...

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks Bill, we're greatly relieved to finally have a plan for the move... had been turned down by 3 other transport companies before getting one to commit.

Congrats and best wishes on your 25th!

Regards,

Re: Klondike Build

A quick update... finally have a signed contract for transport from Catheys Valley to Stockton. The move is scheduled for 2nd week in April with surveyor showing up the week prior so we can bind the insurance policy before getting on the trailer. Major sticker shock, about 4x original estimate for t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, here's a flexible curve template that looks pretty good. Jim's approach is great because you can use a scrap of material on hand to reproduce the curve and is the method I used. For the angle, you can draw the curve on both sides of the piece and shape to the lines... the slope may change alon...

Re: Klondike Build

After bottom paint and making sure everything works we'll be moving to our berth in Alameda. We'd be very pleased to have you visit. Right now waiting for t...
