    Cruising the South Carolina Coast

    Hey Thrillsbe, I realize this is an old thread but I was wondering did you make it down to the SC coast? I am planning a trip down there with my brother at the end of October.

    B&B's first annual "Capsize Camp" July, 20-22

    I think this is the one I use. It works well but if you have the aft deck like I do, some sort of extra handhold on the deck would be helpful to make the first step. https://www.amazon.com/Amarine-made-Polished-Stainless-Transom-position/dp/B077P5Y3VS

    These boats move pretty well with a canoe paddle which I use as a back up for my oars. Oars are a step above but not a huge step.

    I am looking forward to this! Thanks to B&B for hosting this valuable event! I expect to arrive on sight around 2:00 on Friday with my CS17 MK1 loaded to the gills. Anyone attending without a boat is welcome to catch a ride as I will be singlehanded.

    Core Sound Challenge Race June 28th

    When this team calls it a "tough day", I don't take it lightly! They crushed the NCC last year in what I considered very challenging conditions. I wonder how the other teams are faring?

    Core Sound Challenge Race June 28th

    This sounds like a fun event and I am glad someone is stepping up to try and fill the void since the Watertribe NC events are no more. I’d be all over it but unfortunately that is a busy few weeks at work for me. Here’s to there being a next year!
  9. Wow! Another CS in western Virginia? We should start a fleet!

    Taylor and Alan's CS-20 MK3 #15

    Excellent! I confirmed that I want one of these when I climbed aboard Greybeard's MK3 after the EC. I was surprised that the cabin is roomier than I expected. Motivation to take on another major project is lacking, however, when there is so much right with the MK1.
  11. I thought I needed a mizzen staysail but now maybe I need this! This looks like a lot of bang but also a lot of buck (bow sprit, back stays, etc.). Can you comment on the benefit of one vs the other?

    Nice build! I'm interested in your grippy mats in the bilge. Can you share some info on the material and your source?

    Great post! I hope you'll share more of your adventures down there.

    Those are some cute dishes there! I like the countertop too. Did you make it? What kind of wood?
