I never understood the appeal of electric. Range is short. Refuel time long. When looking at overall system electric is not efficient. Much is lost getting it from where it is produced to where it is needed. If solar could produce more power it would be great. I think the auto industry should be loo...

Andrew, I feel your pain. I moved in 2020 and my build doesn't fit in the new garage. I installed a temporary car port/tent to keep the boat in. Working out okay, but very cold in winter. Also, Lisa insists on keeping her car in the garage. Whenever I'm working on parts for the boat that might produ...
Porky, I am not familiar with the sailboat designs and can not speak for performance or sailing characteristics, but I looked in the boatbuilding galleries to find construction pictures. It looks like both designs are built with frames on a building form, then covered with plywood. With the detailed...

I'm not the best to answer this, but I believe it is sticking out too proud of the stem. Check you plans again. I remember the front of the breast hook on the Malahini ( the part the shear is screwed to) is beveled to follow the stem.
Thanks for the advise Chug. I plan on using 20oz paper cups for mixing and pouring that I can just discard when done. Apparently this stuff likes temps above 75. Even my kitchen isn't warm enough. Either I wait until summer or turn the heat up.
I'm casting blocks that can be removed, not cast in place. They will sit on the battens. I will post pics of my process if it works out like I plan. (Also if it doesn't, so others can see how not to do it.)
I feel for you Bryan about the cold. Although our winters here a milder than those back east, it still does put a damper on epoxy work. Cold really does effect boat progress. I'm just anxious to get back to work on the boat after moving and having to work on the new house all summer and fall. I gue...

Matt, that is very cool! It's amazing the detail in a computer program. I would think for such an out of the way place, it would be a blur. My son has it set up with a VR headset. I'll have to try it out.
Tried to do some work on the boat this morning. 19degrees out. Tried to epoxy floor support in. Warmed epoxy hitting cold wood gets too thick to spread quickly. Space heater went on the fritz. A quick trip to Home Depot for a new heater and I did get piece into place. I think I'll wait for warmer te...
