  1. Ken, remember, checked baggage is getting pretty expensive, can’t imagine what they are going to charge for Rosie!
  2. Hi Amos, We have reserved a slip in a marina on Lake Katherine, after last year’s hurricanes it’s the only travelift in operation in our area. It’s is a 2 hour drive from home but is near our favorite cruising areas along the gulf coast. Several family events going on for a few weeks, then getting serious!
  3. Thank you all very much, it is a beautiful design, with a interesting construction technique. Built basically “inside out” goes quickly, till you start rubbing on it!
  4. The game warden said he had inspected various “homemade “ boats and the general thought it is easier to conduct a “pre license “ inspection than a rescue/recovery. He mentioned some of the boats he inspected/rejected he wouldn’t cross a farm pond in.
  5. We did our “technical launch”, had a minor problem with the centerboard trunk, all good now. We wanted to test the rigging before I paint the masts, wasn’t smart enough to do that on our Core Sound 20.3. So the boat is back home getting the masts painted and some minor additions, stuff like binocular rack, spice rack, stuff like that. Notice Carol taking a nap on the bunk behind the lee cloth. The game warden after he completed his inspection, declaring it to be a boat!
  6. Yep, that was us at “Army Hole” during the Texas 200. Graham was there in Carlita and has written a recap of the adventures on B&B’s website. I think the CS MK series is the perfect boat for sailing that event.
  7. It is really not sideways! Hope to launch next week at a friendly shipyard travelift. Solar panels are all working great, hope to motor around a bit and test the Torqeedo pod drive. 4-1 on the mainsheet sure makes a pile of sheet!
  8. Very nice article about Ken’s Outer Banks 26 in this month’s Small Boats Magazine. Certainly is a beautiful boat, has some good photography too! It does look like it is the perfect boat for their lifestyle on Salt Island.
  9. We have lowered both masts on my CS20.3, not hard at all, as long as there isn’t much rolling of the hull. (Water needs to be pretty smooth, just takes 4-5 minutes) We put on a show at a water front restaurant when we lowered our masts to duck under a train bridge in place of waiting till the scheduled opening time.
  10. Hi Don, PM the details please, I currently plan on an epoxy primer/Awlgrip system.
  11. Thanks so much everyone, working on masts now, maybe in a week or so I can show you what it looks like with masts up!
  12. And the name shall be “KALOS”. In the New Testament, Greek lexicon beautiful, handsome, excellent, eminent, choice, surpassing, precious, useful, suitable, commendable, admirable beautiful to look at, shapely, magnificent good, excellent in its nature and characteristics, and therefore well adapted to its ends genuine, approved precious And who doesn’t think their boat is all that!
  13. The hull is nearly completed, just some fiddly stuff to complete, another coat of varnish in the cabin, and touch up some paint. Masts are nearing completion. A few minor trailer things to resolve. Then on to a travelift so we can complete the Coppercoat and see the centerboard go up an down!
