    Nice drawings, nice woodwork... really.:)
    That roller desk...... Loved those lines...:)

    To the boat; is the front cabin long enough to lie down in, or do you plan to stick the legs down under the seats in the outdoor area?

    Bloody stupid "narrowband" died and caused me to be logged out??

    I reckon that clodgo has more smarts than many (anyway smarter than me), with first public project, small and simple enough to be tested and built of almost anything (cardboard & gluestick even) - this "dick-head" (me) went full size final vision first and made a real 5hit of a go of it - - and that woodwork and artistic capability is still making me feel grossly inadequate, inept and jealous :D:D:D:D:D

    Hello,

    Thanks for the inspiring words.

    Knut Sand, yes, I've got almost eight feet of space Including the space under the cockpit floor. There is a water ballast under the cabin floor which I know very little about but it's 4" tall. The chine runners are shorter than they used to be and I'm not sure of the exact position they should be in. At their widest point they are just forward of the center of effort on the sail and angle inward and downward by 2 degrees. There is no centerboard but I'll be leaving room for one if the thing sails like a dog.

    I think I owe the 1 about 40 bucks at this point, will you be willing to settle for 40 internets?:p

    Anyway, pick the thing to pieces if you like, that's why I post the drawings. I don't really know as much as I would like to, I never will, a student for life I suppose.

    Chris

    Save some time and money, put one in now. Dollars to doughnuts it will be uncontrollable without one.

    Cheers

    your probably right Beanz,

    I'd have to sacrifice that interior space. "sorry sweetie, no sweet lovin' tonight unless you can get around that centerboard box"

    There must be an alternative other than a centerboard or leeboards. Twin keels might work, Sean Herron sent me a bunch of links. Hmmmmm

    What height is it from the seat area to the boom for the sail? or the top of the seatback (where you'll sit during harder sailing) in a boat like that, you will have to react, when the jiib comes, I would keep it a low as possible, larger sailarea, or shorter arm for the sail to work on, even if it means that you will have to learn the hard way to keep the harddisk out of the way....

    Have not seen the top of the rig yet, is it a gaff rig?

    Wouldn't the board end up just going through the cockpit floor? I guess for feet are going under there? Twin swinging or dagger boards? Would an offset board work ? Might produce some handling idiosyncrasies but it could work well enough.

    Little trick used on the North East coast of England, by boats called cobles, used off beaches - no 'boards etc use instead a long rudder blade? might work!!
