Re: Congratulations Comanche

Yes the race is 630 nautical miles (1170 km) basicly off shore of the Australian coastline. Between the main land and Tasmania is the Bass Strait through which pass the Roaring 40's trade winds around the bottom of the earth (Great Southern Ocean). So it can get very cold and very very rough. The re...

Congratulations Comanche

Comanche has become the first US yacht to win the Sydney to Hobart yacht race in its 71 year history. 3rd place was also taken out by an American maxi. 34 boats had to with-draw due to damage or injuries.

Re: tahoe19 plans

Behrendt 1 I used the deck camber line for the transom. I made a ply template of this arc and used it to get the deck camber for each frame and also shaped these parts by using the template as a router guide with a top bearing staight bit. As for the transom I also used the template, by determining ...

Re: Ski king build Tasmania, Australia.

I found it basicly easier to forget metric and work in inches. Still get tapes and carpenter's rulers in both.

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

No worries Donn and thank you for your kind word. It is amazing how you can look at things for ages and not see it, but suddenly the penny drops! It has happened to me on the build many times.

Donn
P.S. When it comes time to fit the sheer it will become evident where you have to fit the extra layers.
I must admit, having never built a boat before, it took me a long time to get my head around the sheer point and these notches and how I was going to cut them out correctly.

Re: Extending the Tahoe 23 to 24'2"

Donn On the plans it reads "2 - 1/2x4" where "-" is read as "of", so "2 of 1/2 x 4". Likewise on sheet 4 where it discusses the side layers it reads "3 - 1/8" it reads as 3 layers of 1/8. I hope I have explained that clearly. As for the sheer and dec...

Re: Sealing through-bolt holes?

Thanks everyone for answering my question. I will slightly oversize the holes and epoxy the seal with plenty of sealant.

Sealing through-bolt holes?

What do most people do to seal through-bolt holes (eg prop strut, rudder etc)? 1. Do you oversize drill the hole. Fill it with epoxy and then drill it to correct size ensuring the hole walls are sealed with epoxy. or 2. Just rely on a sealant eg 3M to prevent water seepage into the hole? Thanks for ...

Personally I think the reddish brown is the way to go. I think the walnut would be too much with the metalic brown sides. Looks fantastic. Your Dad OK. Sent him a PM about his drill etc but haven't heard back.

Re: Tahoe 23

Well I have finish the preliminary set-up for the prop strut, rudder and skeg. I'm quite happy with the result. So next is a final sand. I might give the hull a wipe over with a damp cloth to raise the fibres and close up the holes from the staples before the final sand though. What do people think?...
