    About the teardrop trailers from the previous page... I've see some new ones in europe from this German firm.

    I would love to see that, please post the link . . :)

    Cheers,

    With the kind assistance of Petros I got the Re-YAK-tion skinned (and home in one piece). It's currently sitting in my friend's shop to minimize humidity swings while I work on getting the polyurethane to coat it.

    Thanks. I toured the T@B trailer at an RV show in Florida. They are nice, but bigger than I want.

    Which one did you tried? There is T@B*, T@B L and T@B XL**

    * on and off road versions - ** out of production now

    Unloaded weight of the smallest T@B is about 500 kg.

    Cheers,
    Angel

    PS - just looked it up: unloaded weight smallest T@B (incl. basic equipment) approx 550 kg.

    Finally got the Re-YAK-tion painted. The wood parts are the hatches, but the entire deck is going to be wood eventually, unless I change my mind again.

    Almost there!

    I got the decks on yesterday, and trimmed the hatches and put the first coat of poly on today. Still a fair bit to do, but as of right now the plan is to splash her Sunday afternoon. Only took 15 months to get this far. I still don't know what I'm going to do around the cockpit, but I have 4 days to figure it out :D

    This is a pretty good approximation of how she'll look when she's finished. The white around the cockpit will get painted blue tomorrow. Still hoping to launch Sunday.
