  1. CS 17

    Here are the pictures. I was able to get the CS 17 onto the WoodenBoat "Launchings" page. They sent me a free copy of the magazine, plus a tearsheet, a WB hat that says "Launchings No 261" (which is the issue number) and a decal that says "A Proud Builder of Wooden Boats." Lots of fun to get all that in the mail. I had sent in 4 or 5 high res photos and a little description. Thanks again to all on this forum for advice offered, directly and indirectly (and again to Joe for the picture, taken at the Messabout).

    Hi, all, If you can, check out the March/April issue of WoodenBoat at page 89, coming soon to a news stand or mailbox near you. I'll try to get a picture up later. Special thanks to Joe Anderson for the photo. And, as we've said often, Graham designs a heckuva boat. Proud to be one of his builders.
  3. A dodger for a Core Sound 20 Mk 3 . .

    I bought a dodger kit from sailrite for my original 17. Just watching the video instructions took about 3 hrs, so I'm sure the actual making is going to take some time. Looking at this gave me some good ideas, too. I won't be able to start until I bring the boat home from winter storage. We'll see. Nothing ventured...

    Good videos. Plus I never knew how to pronounce "Epifanes" before.
  5. CS15 with a lug yawl rig

    Thanks, I'll check out those sites.
  6. Summer Breeze - Core Sound 17, Mk-3

    Long live Summer Breeze! We'll certainly miss your posts on this fine craft, Chick. Sounds like she's in good hands.

    Neat nets. I need to try those. I found a couple of youtubes. Did you have a specific place you learned to tie them?
  8. Core Sound 20 Mark III #3 "Jazz Hands"

    Looks really good, Steve. Your coffee cup time has paid off.
  9. Aussie CS 20-3#5 "Dragonfly 2"

    Well, it was 0 degrees F here this a.m., 17 now at noon, and 7" of snow expected by tomorrow, so your pictures are most welcome. What a great sight to see such a fine craft in such good surroundings.
  10. Aussie Open OB-20 #26

    Thrilling moment, beautiful craft.
  11. CS 17 #191 build

    Looks terrific. Your waterfront setup is very slick.
  12. CS 17

    I love that advice and, yes, this little skipper is as curious as can be, much to the delight of all concerned.
  13. CS 17

    Ha. Can't help with the countertop. It was here when the kids moved into their NYC apartment. It appears to be some sort of "stressed" pine or fir butcher block.

    Having some trouble with getting the photos where I want them, so there is going to b some repetition. In any event: Here is the latest wooden boat out of my shop: And here is the happy skipper:
  15. CS 17

    Off on an expedition to town 5 mi away on a broad reach. The wind had come up a bit, so a good chance to check out reefed sails. No problem. With five aboard (including grandson), we skimmed right along in comfort. Just started, so still getting the rudder down. I could have shaken out the reefs by now as the wind came down, but the boat was still moving so nicely, why bother? What we live for The happy skipper
