Don Silsbe Posted December 12, 2021 Report Share Posted December 12, 2021 It’s too quiet around here. I think it’s time to start a new thread. This past summer, I did some floatation tests on my Two Paw 8 “Two Bits”. As a result, I’ve decided to add floatation chambers to the forward section. Looks like I’m gonna need a little masthead float! Also, while I was at the Messabout last fall, I picked up the sections to make a new mast. I’m replacing the sprit sail with a Marconi rig. I’m sure she will be much faster, point higher, etc. Finally, at the Messabout I got to row Tom’s expedition TP8. He has inspired me to shift my seat and oarlocks aft, since his boat rowed so much faster than mine. Talk about the need for speed! I’ve got some other irons in the fire, but I think I’ll start working on my mast today. The sail is on order. The photos are of the current setup. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
