I used sapelle at 4 mm for the final layer and had no difficulty with it bending to the contours of my Tahoe.

Re: Tahoe 23

Thanks for the good wishes.
It has been raining on and off for the last few days so I have feathered the overlaps and sanded the glassed area and washed her down for the next layers of epoxy. But will hold off till it clears.

Re: Tahoe 23

Well finally back into the build. Treatment seems to have gone well and the oncologist is happy with the results but they will never give you a definitive answer. By the time I finished treatment the weather had warmed up to 35 to 40 degrees C. Just too hot in the shed to work. Especially with epoxy...

Re: New monaco build down under

I got sapele from Britton timbers at half the price quote by anyone else. At the time I think it was $1700 for 1/2 a cube. There is one at Prestons in Sydney. Sorry not sure where Prestons is. They can supply you with a listing of packs for sale and dimensions of boards in each pack

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 ...

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.
