  1. you might find this link helpful for the oars: http://www.instantboats.com/oarmaking.htm
  2. They changed it, it's now http://www.benford.us/
  3. Would diatomateous earth work for an epoxy filler?
  4. As a matter of fact, I plan to make the design available here after I build the prototype,(to make sure that it floats), but the dimentions are 13',4 1/2',not much, sa is 65 square feet. Jacob P.S. it may be a few years before the boat construction is begun, due to several current boat projects.
  5. Sorry, I've been rather busy lately and couldn't post this sooner. The boat I'm talking about is not a Stevenson boat, but one of my own design. Anyway, I finaly desided on a loose-footed standing lug rig. But thank anyway for all the input. Jacob
  6. I'm hoping to build a sailboat some time within the next year and I'm tring to deside which rig to use. cat boat.pdf skiff.pdf
  7. All right here's my question, I just acquired a Taser 14' sailboat and I was wondering if any of you have any experience with it, my second question is that I found a strip of some delamination/blistering about 2 1/2' to3'long and about 1"to1 1/2" along the forward port deck, so I desided to fix it by drilling shalo holes were the kevlar is delaminating,drying it out, and injecting epoxy with a large syringe, and what I want to know is whether or not West System epoxy is conpatible with whatever resin is used in the hull constution. thanks
  8. Happy Father's Day.
  9. As I was looking through my collection of WE photos (458), I had an idea. Anyone who wants to posts their favorite photo of their Stevenson designed boat, and if I have any photos of their boat then I will post my favorite photo of their boat. Sound fun?
  10. I was wondering if any one has any ideas on how to have roller furling with a hanked on jib , thank's
  11. I ordered the West system epoxy from Jamestown Distributers yesterday, and I hope to start building by the Fourth of July. gaff cat.pdf

  14. Be this the wheel?
  15. Yah, originally I had drawn her with a gaff rig, but I decided that it would be too complicated so I changed it to the sprit rig you see her in now. cat boat.pdf
