  1. CS 17

    There is a fair possibility that Sally was actually the one that took the beautiful photo of your boat. Either way we are very happy for you.
  2. Core Sound 20 Mark 3 Build - Chesapeake, VA

    Oh to be a tree and get sent to Amos' workshop.
  3. B&B Messabout 2017

    Thanks to all the B and B crew and the participants who helped make a truly memorable Messabout. Amos and his family joined Sally and I for a sail. Local Honey is in the background. Second photo is Pete sailing Chessie. Third photo is Paul working Carrie B upwind.
  4. B&B Messabout 2017

    Jay Chick said he is planning a mini cruise after the Messabout. You said you were planning a cruise prior to the Messabout. Will you be staying after the Messabout as well? Sally and I are trying to plan for a two to three day cruise either before or after, depending on how we can work out our schedules. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
  5. Carlita is off on a new adventure

    Safe travels. Give my best to Gordy.
  6. Core Sound 20 Mark 3 Build - Chesapeake, VA

    Very nice work Amos. You can not have too many kid pictures not if they are working on the boat, or sailing. Your laminate layup looks so clean. I think laminated beams are one of the best combinations of epoxy and wood. Beauty and function. Nature and Chemistry.
  7. Core Sound 20 Mk 3 -- #4 "Chessie" . .

    Well done Pete! I have enjoyed following your progress. There is nothing like a problem that at first appears difficult and the magic of how a solution appears sometimes from out of the blue.
  8. What is the deal with that

    Alan you and Taylor must be made of some pretty fine stuff, with a boat to match. Do you have any photos, video?
  9. What is the deal with that

    Ken raised Southbound to be undeterred or maybe that is unperturbed by heavy weather. I am sure Ken will be pleased to know she was able to look after Alan and Taylor. This could add fuel to the debate concerning reefing by moving the mizzen to the third mast position.
  10. What is the deal with that

    Looking at the Watertribe site it appears like Alan and Taylor were the only ones to finish the North Carolina Challenge. Well congratulations. There must be a story here. I am unable to access the Watertribe discussion forum. Anyone know any details?
  11. Texas 200

    This looks like it could be a lot of fun. A Princess 22, a Belhaven 19, a Core Sound 17 mk3, a Core Sound 20 mk3, plus lots of other interesting boats. Have a great adventure.
  12. Centerboard trunk

    Thanks for the update. Good luck on the work. Photos and updates may help others deal with this problem or better yet avoid it. Marine Plywood is not necessarily rot resistant. Okoume has almost no natural resistance to rot. One of the keys to making plywood epoxy boats durable is keeping the water out. Ideally any penetration through the plywood for a fastner or whatever should be drilled oversize and filled with epoxy then redrilled so the fastner is going through an epoxy bushing. One very important place to do this is at the centerboard pin. The pin should be surrounded by an epoxy bushing 6mm or more thick so there is no way that water can get into the edge grain of the plywood.
  13. Centerboard trunk

    You mentioned that there was wear on the centerboard. If this is just from dragging on the bottom no problem. If this was from rubbing on the inside of the trunk then you probably have a matching amount of wear inside. Get a good light and see if you can see anything of the inside of the trunk. As Graham cautioned you might take a good poke all around the boat. There is a lot of willing expertise on the forum. If you have the time. I would bet you could do the repair.
  14. Many years ago my wife, son and I were sailing a canoe across Back Bay. We heard a splash and looked to see what appeared to be a Sea Monster. We saw a serpentine looking head followed in about 10 feet by a serpentine loop with no head or tail visible. On board there developed a spirited dispute among the crew as to whether we should pursue the Sea Monster and attempt to photograph it or flee in the opposite direction. We heard another splash and looked to see the same apparition. We had the camera ready and began pursuit. As we closed in the Sea Monster seemed to break in half and two river otters were looking at us.
  15. I have seen river otters in Back Bay and on the Virginia Barrier Islands. They are fun to watch. I don't think they mind the salt water a bit. Though I believe you will only find them in shallow water close to shore.
