    Sid's bare bones - in true tradition of the backyard build - expense so far, $54.00 for plank of Port Orford cedar plus some old 3mm ply scraps plus some left over epoxy.

    I'm looking forward to this build. How are you keeping everything aligned out there in the grass?

    String line, Dennis, and pencil marks - plus the optometer; I veer towards the arty-farty side of boatbuilding.

    Sid has an old main and some plastic for clothes - we've had plenty of rain here, drought is long gone.

    It's a cool looking design, main hull especially. But the rotating beam/amas look complicated to build. Could someone go with basic beams instead of the rotation joint?

    I agree SpiritWolf, in fact I intend to build the beam without the main bearing and then just photograph the beam on the main hull as if the bearing was there, open and shut - (I know it will work, whoops, sound like Doug) but I don't need a rotating beam setup here in Auckland because I don't intend to trailer Sid and will keep the boat on a mooring. Therefore beam and hull will be epoxied, glassed with some carbon into one unit. But there will still be the water stays because I like them taking the rig loads back to the main hull.
    Have been laminating the J foils in stripped white cedar during the wet period - will post jpegs soon.

    I was a bit worried about that swivelling beam. :D

    Darn it Gary if you say swiveling beam you should make one. Otherwise people may snivel about the swivel !

    How about I make a model a la Doug, with the swivel, with a polished brass nameplate, and photograph it a dozen times - will that suffice?
