  1. To me, I hate long zippers. I always seem to get some fabric caught in them and then you have trouble. I wonder if they make velcro strong enough for that application?

    I have occasionally looked at waterproof cameras. West Marine has a 35mm camera that looks like it will fit your needs for under $200. I have never seen a underwater digital camera for less than $600 (they have one of those at West also). The prices I have seen in camera shops on waterproof digitals are in line with West. I have found that for taking pictures of sailboats, a good zoom (optical) is a must. The better zoom lens you have, the farther away from the boat you can be and still get a picture of the boat that doesn't look like a speck.
  3. I was born and raised in Atlanta Ga. Lived a few years in LA (lower Alabama).
  4. I don't have PC plans but I do have vacationer plans if you would like them.
  5. The verse about "put him in a dinghy till he's sober", I heard as "put him in a longboat till he's sober". One other verse is; "Put him in the scupper with a hawsepipe in him" The verses are probably infinite as long as people make them up. I never heard the "find another bottle" verse, I like that one.
  6. I started out with horns cause they look good. I now have rings because they work better.
  7. If you want to come across the wind faster you can have your crew back the main and push the bow around lickety split. Mostly it's like Charlie said, just put the helm over when you are ready to tack. I have been very satisified with the way my CS handles beating.
  8. Congratulations on a spectacular boat and even more spectacular exhibition of sailing.
  9. That sounds like the one. It looks like a good lake to sail on if you can avoid the bass boats.
  10. Sounds like you learned more than you hoped you might. I hope you still enjoyed your adventure.
  11. Congratulations!!! I used to live on the Black Warrior river in Demopolis. I currently live in Atlanta. I built and own CS 17 hull number 113 here. You are going to build a great design. The construction method is strong and simple. With a little care you will have a great boat. There is a lake on I20 close to Anniston. If you would like to meet there and sail in my CS. Just give me an excuse to Sail OH yea, PICTURES MAN PICTURES!!
  12. She looks fast just sitting there!
  13. I hear tales of people who have also bought their plywood from them. You have to pick it up though. Living in SC it might not be too far a drive for you.

    Just to let you know, I just received my plans. That makes just under 2 weeks.
  15. That could possibly be doable for me. I would love to see your boat. I still want to sail that lake.
