    I didn't mean to irritate you, just published photos of a boat that arrived swiftly and hove to for the harbormaster, don't know anymore than it's a small sharpie based yacht. If you have experience with the design and have improved it and misinterpreted me, my mega-bad....

    You published them before on another thread! Its the "wooden boat" designed Egret. You can buy the plans in the woodenboatstore and build it if you like it so much. An yes you are right, its wonderfull looking boat.

    I misinterpreted your post, but Iam not angry or somewhat. My reaction was meant funny, (see the emoticons).

    I appreciate seeing the photos of the new model and the old. Bigger doesn't mean better was implied. The photos are very well done and give a good context too.

    Nope, don't have a real sharpie.... and I may never have one. I got sidetracked when PAR offered me plans for a 28' riverboat. I know that's a radical switch of plans. But I'm a lot more likely to coax the wife onto what PAR's drawing, than I am to get her near something with sails and sitting headroom.

    The original plan was to have the sharpie ready to go when I retire in 2015; now it'll be the riverboat instead. Meanwhile I'm getting ready to build Billy Atkin's 21' 'sailing canoe' Excelsior, so I'll still have something with sails to play in.

    You can see what PAR's whipping up for me here:

    Congratulations on getting the model into the water; looks great. I should go ahead and finish my sharpie model, even if it's no longer a study project for a full-sized one.

    Which Egret are you all talking about? I can think of a half a dozen Egret sharpies (supposedly). The Brewer Egret is 44', then there's Parker's, Bill Garden's, of course the Munroe Egret, etc., etc., etc.

    The recent Egret that appeared in WoodenBoat magazine wasn't very close to a sharpie, though it started out this way. It was heavily modified in order to meet EU and owner requirements which affected the B/L ratio, freeboard and a host of other "issues" that their (the EU) blanket approach to yacht design dictates. A real, typically proportioned sharpie couldn't be offered in the EU as it's considered unsafe in many categories.

    I think you should do it if you have some time left beside your "Excelsior" project. RC-Sailing is great fun, never thought it could be that much.

    All my RC components are very cheap second hand from ebay. You only need two functions (rudder and winch) and thats it. Quite simple. Mine were less than 60 Euros.

    Dear PAR,

    Bataan posted some photos ( the gaff rigged one above) of the 28' Egret replika, offered as a plan at the Woodenboatstore.

    The model sailing is my design "No rEgret", one of the three sharpie designs besides "Troy's" inland sharpie and the one of "daves g". My design is a modern devellopment, based on Egret.

    I think thats all.

    PAR. which sharpie do you mean?

    Troy, (and PAR) that's a real beauty! The problem with that one is that it's not built and not in my yard! Takes tons of build pics. Get started, you're on the clock. I'll see how difficult it is and then give PAR his due....

    But I really wanted a much smaller outboard, up to a 25hp.

    I will need that crane, but with an electric 12V winch running through it, in pipe and a large base plate, those kegs are heavy!

    North Carolina 2 mast sharpie

    Hello all!
    I am building a North Carolina sharpie model too! (based upon information from the Parker's book). This will be a working model, in some parts accurate, scalewise & in some builded like a toy (just a few nessesary frames inside the plywood hull).
    I am posting some images...

    It's looking very good so far. I hope you'll keep posting pic's of your progress; I'd love to see it in the water.

    Sure thing!

    Sure,
    but i am working on this as a.. brake between illustrating projects, so it will take some time.
    Although, i've got the radiocontrol & the sailwinch already!

    By the way, the boat is 99cm long (1:10 scale).

    Well! Hey hey hey, that works, 10 to 30 hp! Very nice and a rather difficult build. But, hey, it sure meets the goals. Thanks!

    Nothing particularly difficult to make on Egress, Wavewacker. The hull is the simplest form to build, fully developed and very little twist. Even the bow, which can be a pain in the butt on vertical steams hasn't much twist in it. The deck structures are straight forward, plywood over light studs in the structural areas, with a foam core. The roofs are the same, with less structural reinforcement (a true cored roof). Plywood bulkheads and furniture accommodations, with the simplest of propulsion arrangements. I'll admit it's not a small project for most people, but Troy's no stranger to projects of this scope, admittedly different then what he's use to, more then within is skill set. I think the hardest part of this build will be, learning how to sew a straight row of stitches in the cushions on the settees.
