    Gday

    Just checked the plans in my shed. I have plans for the Mk1 beams and the Mk 2 beams. I am coming down to Sydney this weekend and the next for the Extreme 40s.

    I would be glad to help a Twiggy get back on the water but you will have to give me a sail when she is fixed up.

    cheers

    Just out of interest Phil how do the Mk1 and Mk2 beams compare? The Mk2 was somewhat larger in terms of hull volumes was the scantling on the beams increased?

    I will get them copied and see if they can scan them at the same time. Then post them.

    cheers

    Twiggy Owner

    Hi Guys,

    I recently bought a Twiggy Mk 1 from Adelaide.
    She is now in Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes.
    I'm interested in getting a copy of the plans and making contact with other Twiggy owners, etc.
    I had a front beam failure in big seas on the way from Adelaide.
    Good news, we got her home in one piece with a bit of jury rigging.
    She has now been repaired thanks to insurance with Youi.
    I'll see if I can post some photos here. :confused:
    Can someone tell me how to do that from a file on my computer?

    Regards

    Hi Michael,
    That was the blue Twiggy in SA? Great to hear its come to Vic. To upload photos just click on the manage attachments option when you start a new post it will let you browse to the files on your computer and upload them. Use the blue post reply button directly under this post not the quick reply option at the bottom.

    Hi Michael,
    Great to hear that Youi is an ok insurer. My Seawind is insured with them but like most I hope to never need it.

    OK,

    Thanks for that.
    Lets try the photos.
    First is small break, second is repairs and third is after repairs.
    Youi was good about the payout.
    The money allowed us to open the from beam right across and fix several problems (rot). So she is all good now but I will have a good look at the rear beam soon.
    Disregard the name, she will have a new one soon.
    I hope to do some racing here on the Gippsland Lakes and perhaps SOMR and LCMR.
    Any of you guys know the owner of Kiska?
    I'd like to make contact.
    My email is earthsuit@hotmail.com.au if you prefer email (I do).
    Regards
    Michael

    You may find it easier to rebuild the existing beams.
    Have a look at the photo of my beam during repairs.
    The work was straight forward but took some time.
    I can send you more photos if you want to have a look at the whole job.
    I took photos at the end of most days.

    Regards
    Michael

    I noticed this boat the other week. My ketch is on a jetty further up the arm. Looks good micheal. A bit bigger than your old boat.
