  1. Yes it does I went ahead and used what I had and that was mahogany I cut it into 1/4” thick strips and made a gluelam and then weighed it down on the keel until cured I hope it will work well, as for a keel strip I used a 3/4 half oval brass.could not find a hollow back locally and shipping was a killer. mark
  2. Steve! Mark here hull #24 question? what did you do for a keel strip
  3. Build of hull #24 ok this one is on me while working on gluing down the bunk tops some time ago I knocked a weight down thru the forward storage locker open hatch at the time I didn’t think much of it, but when I flipped the boat I discovered this fracture at the bow. I did look to see if there was any damage at the time but it didn’t feel bad.Now that this is the result. I ground out the damaged area as seen in the photos down to the last ply on the inside of the panel. Cutting glass patches progressively larger till I had enough to build the thickness back out. I know it won’t be perfect but it will not compromise the integrity of that panel. Do to the fact that this repair is on a contour I could put weight on it so I decided to bag it,the pictures show the steps involved, if anyone has a different idea I would like to here from you. mark(has
  4. Hi Todd I know iam lucky to have all the head room I need, I only kept the boat on her side one day to cut out the center board well, and trim the chine keys one the starboard side, the next day I did the rest of the flip using come alongs and ratchet straps. Just take your time and think it out before you commit to the roll I did get the neighbors to come over and help out on the come alongs And let me tell you it was a little scary you have a lot of time and money in it and one little error and it all fire wood so just take your time and have the beer afterwards and just think you get to do it again only it will be even heavier. mark
  5. Build of hull#24 got a little further than I expected turning the boat myself so for now I can work the hull where she is , although it looks as if the hull is resting on the floor their is enough of a load taken by the come alongs to just keep the hull from swinging when I work. The use of the Japanese back saw worked great for cutting away the gear teeth on the chine cut them flush with the hull and pretty quickly so why not the trunk opening made several cuts with a small circular saw and then went in with the Japanese back saw this will take a little longer because every so often I have to stop a clean the blade it gets gummed up with the dabs of hot glue I used to tack things together. mark
  6. Yea I build and fly giant scale rc, seems like I should take more pic of my planes, rotating the boat single handed is a lot easier when both points are on center line like a spit mark
  7. Build of hull #24 Today was another milestone for the construction of hull #24 She is now cradle free hanging in mid air like one of David copperfields grand illusions the next step wil of course is to flip her over to start the work on the hull bottom as soon as I can round up a few friends to help out. mark
  8. Hi mark here hope all are well and taking this pandemic in stride. well I finally got all my parts together to install the ballast tank pumps one located in the battery box to fill the tank and one in the other compartment to pump out these should work well enough. The next step is to decide how to exit the tank with the wires probably just drill a hole and run them out and seal the hole with a water proofing seal also I will add an overflow vent tube to prevent the tank from becoming pressurized. This post also includes a milestone for many builders, got to remove the temporary batten along the sheer at long last I can see how well the curve of the hull looks without the batten in the way. I think it turned out pretty good. The filling of the seam and holes will be my next step on the hull but first I will finish off the ballast tank lid and glue it down. By the way I ordered some of the BandB wood flour what a difference it makes in the application of fillets I have been making my own thickener out of sifted saw dust from a local cabinet shop.
  9. Hi mark here Build of hull #24 Cs 20 mklll i know it’s a little off the wall but is there anybody from an other state flying to the mess about this year who might wish to split the cost of a rental car I will be there 10/21/2020 to 10/25/2020 please post reply mark trip canceled due to Covid-19
  10. J hi’ this is the product that i am using .i here by do not endorse or promote the brand but the content is right stuff mark
  11. J I am by no means a pro but the process of installing my bow eye or any other bolt or screw are to use a non hardening bedding compound, for bolts I drill the hole slightly oversized to allow the compound to fill the void, with screws drill your pilot hole screw in your screw dry remove fill the hole with compound also apply compound to the part to be installed and a little on the screw and install and you should have a little squeeze out. This should prevent any water intrusion and if you should need to make a repair at a latter time it will make it easier to remove the faster.
  12. Build of hull#24 well I have been making slow buy steady progress on ol #24 and have temporarily installed bow and stern hold downs while waiting for the boarding ladder to arrive, that was a teadious choice there are somany to choose from but I left It to my wife because in the end she had to be comfortable with the Ladders design. Ok fast forward a couple of days the ladder arrived and as shown in the pictures this was the final choice a nice little fold up made out of 316 ss the question that I have is , does the ladder extend low enough into the water in the down position? the reason for the present location is so the ladder will hopefully be out of the water when in the stored position. I need some input to this topic as I never had a boat with a boarding ladder before
  13. Hello again I have been busy most everyday out in the boat shop, after putting in the chain locker floor I turned my attention to putting in the bunk compartment bulkheads to me this was quite a chore, but got it done in several days. While the bulkheads cured I would work on the ballast tank. I will be using two bait tank live well pumps to fill and empty the ballast tank But since these pumps are not self priming the fill pump will be mounted directly in the ballast tank as far away from the access port as practical to be able reach it for service , the wires will exit through a small hole then sealed with silicone the pump to empty the tank will be located in one of the storage compartments and using bulkhead fittings to enter the tank. The tanks have been Coated with two coats of devthane 379. While all other parts were curing I built the locker lids an Frameworks .when the paint dries the cockpit floor supports will go in as always stay safe and keep on building mark
  14. Hey bill ! dont need the track but I live in Spokane area and I am building a cs20mk3 and would like very much like to get in touch with another BandB owner/builder. Email me if you would like to talk a little shop @ downadirtrd@yahoo.com mark
  15. Ok! So it’s a land yacht! And with all that’s been going on and her being on the front lines let’s hope it keeps her safe. mark
  16. Well! I had no idea that I would step on so many toes I do apologize if I got on somebody’s wrong side, Iam not a religious person by nature and to ask god to just bless America ?? Was wrong of me , of course the entire world needs his blessings no mater their faith, at this time of illness and death. As for the extra help it was ment to keep individuals in one household busy I in no way would encourage any person or business world wide with lockdown and stay at home orders from there governments to break the law. Let’s hope that this ends soon and that we can get back to our so called normal lives. mark
  17. I know at times like this we all hope for the best, but look at it this way now we have no excuse to put in extra time on our boat building projects and you might have extra help just sitting around with nothing to do. God bless America ?? mark
  18. looks unbelievable but how do put this thing together without finger prints everywhere on my build it looks like my iPad touch screen. lets hope for a quick resolve to this terrible coved 19 so we can get back to our normal life style mark
  19. Are their any updates on sailorman

  20. Thanks for the comments it’s always nice to know that the work I’am doing meets the quality of other much more experienced builders and that I, am on track to having a great looking boat mark
  21. Hello again I have been busy finishing off the void under the chain locker and the forward storage locker all the surfaces have been coated with three coats of epoxy the first coat being cut with about 25% of acetone to enhance the penetration into the wood fibers, each coat of epoxy was sanded in between coats and then two coats of total boat single stage polyurethane paint. After all surfaces were painted I cleaned the edges down to bare wood again to get a good bond when I glued down the floor. The next thing will be to glue down the forward storage locker top. From this point I will be working on installing internal supports. As always any help will be greatly appreciated. mark
  22. Build of #24 spent a couple of hours going over all the information out there on the internet and your recommendations and came up with a 50 watt semi-flexible solar.panel, 30amp charge controller, and a 35 amp-hour agm battery to start off my power supply if I need more storage the batteries are small enough I can add an additional one quite easily. The next thing will be the switch distribution panel, more time on the internet
  23. Still not able to work on the boat much due to life happening, which gives me time to plan ahead with the electrical requirements of the boat. While I may not compete in costal events I still want to rig the boat for them anyway. The boat will have electric bilge pumps too fill and empty the ballast tank, she will also have all the standard running lights, with some interior lighting. All of the lights on the boat will be LED so they will be low amperage draws the bilge pumps will probably have the most draw. She will probably have some kind of GPS and radio. I do plan to use AGM deep cycle batteries but do not know how many amp-hours I should get? I will do as many others have done and install a solar panel on the front hatch cover to keep the charge up. The question I have is how many watt panel should I use and a good starting point for how many amp-hours the batteries should be given the requirements I have. As always I thank everyone for supporting me in my build of hull#24. IMG_0196.MOV IMG_0196.MOV
  24. I have posted some photos of my progress and a further description what’s going on is in the other post I made on build of hull #24 as a reply to my own topic I still cant seem to figure out how to continue a topic and just add pages to it.
