  1. This build is still available for someone with the time and money to go!
  2. Chic I've seen your work before I built my Belhaven up close. and its second to none.
  3. All plywood and wood in general flex's different, I would adjust to what pleases the eye and go with it. Your build looks Very clean and well done, Just keep at it.
  4. Graham the boat looks very weatherly as you do also, keep doing what us all old-timer's wish we were doing! I miss my Belhaven and the adventure I once had, sail on!
  5. I bought a book about 15 years ago by Todd Bradshaw I think the title is canoe rig. This book is allsome if someone is considering a sailing canoe. Its a large book packed with sail rig illustrations, lee boards, rudders and all sort of instructions on how to build everything you need. Its a very detailed book. Its available from Wooden Boat and Amazon. Scott
  6. I always thought the burning 2 cycle oil smelled better than sweaty arm pits rolling!?
  7. Randy, sorry to hear about your C19 exposure. Hope your doing good. Glad your taking good care of the Belhaven. I'm going to be painting my mast for my Spindrift this winter and going to try something a different than the way I did the Belhaven masts. On the Belhaven I sanded them with 220, wiped them down with mineral spirits followed with primer all within an hour. I drilled the holes for the track months after it was painted. ( one part paint and primer) If I remember correctly the paint chipped on some of the holes that we drilled which gives corrosion a head start. On this mast I'm going to dry fit the track getting all the holes pre drilled before painting. We will then sand with 220 wipe down with aluminum etch ( got from Jamestown ) then prime with epoxy primer, then comes the two part white paint. I already have the primer, paint for the boat already so there is no added cost and the etch from another project. Only time will tell. Scott
  8. I personally never had very good luck wetting out glass with a roller. I always use a bondo squeegee to wet out glass and use a roller then a squeegee to fill the weave. That works for me, a roller seems to try and lift the glass from the wood while wetting out. No bigger than the few voids you have I would ether try injecting some epoxy in them with a needle or just letting them be. Scott
  9. Thanks Chic, it's all just practice and entertainment for an upcoming build. I want to do a 1950's 16 to 17 foot strip sandwich built runabout with a modern bottom on it. Scott
  10. Got some progress on this tub. Rub rails are on and the cap all the way around the boat. Getting down to a lot of sanding on the inside, then painting and varnish come out.
  11. Graham or Alan is the mess-about still on for this year? Just trying to make plans with all this STUFF going on. If it is a go, I'm planning on bringing the heaviest spindrift ever made with a lot of mahogany and varnish for show and tell. I haven't seen everybody in quite a few years and it would be nice to catch up. Plus buy some aluminum tube and sail track for the mast. PS If I lost 40 lbs my boat would be in the proper weight range!! Scott
  12. Thanks, I'm going to try to get them on this weekend.
  13. Anyone have experience steam bending Mahogany? I'm getting ready to install the rub rails on my Spindrift 12. They are 1 1/4 " tall and 7/16th thick, I think they may go on without steaming, but I don't want to remake them if they crack ! So I thought I would steam them. It seems every rub rail I've ever installed try's to cup out on the bottom as it goes towards the stem. Its actually the shape of the hull making the strip bend in two different directions that makes it appear to cup out. My steam box will handle the first six feet of the rail that takes all the real bending. I've done white oak before in it and you can just about tie it in a knot when it comes out of the box, but I've never steamed mahogany before. Scott
