Congratulations. Looks better than Pro-built. Just need to remember to remove the drain plug when stowed. ;)
What tender do you have in mind?
Great work Doug, very impressive that so little can go so fast. Video works perfectly for me.
My suggestion would be to double the chord of the...
just a suggestion. Remove the boards, take a 3-4 mm dia synthetic rope (scrap) long enough and run it down the aft end of the case so a little bit...
Sounds as if the aft tapers of the board and case are really well matched. When stationary, do the boards have a fair amount of fore-aft wriggle...

Should be some way to prevent...

How to reinforce it?
That hatch would have to be removed and the space filled in and then add a new hanging bulkhead fwd of that to pickup the...

To eliminate one extra step the structure gets eff'd up.
Missing a link?
Hollow Al. sections might suit (at least the fwd. beam). Must be a lot of scrap in the Caribbean from last year.
Feet are small, so put in a full width "foot shelf" say 70 cm wide x 70 cm long in the bows that abuts two swinging mini bunks. Each half the...
thanks for the information.
Also checked out the Tally Ho project.
I seem to remember that the longitudinal truss was originally created for the riverine boats that carried the building blocks (several tons in...
How does the design handle the 25 foot-30ft change in draft between vessel loaded and unloaded?
Existing designs demand that matching ballast be...
