Thanks Steve. Princess was the perfect dog. A bit "wild" until she finally settled down. She used to take US for a walk for the first 3 years. To anxious to see what was ahead. The last couple of years have been tough taking care of her, but she took care of us for the previous 14 years. She's definitely missed.

 

Sorry you won't have any boats at the messabout this year, but you are coming? Plenty of other folks to sail with while you're hear. Even at least one old codger with a stink-pot to ride with if ya want.

 

I may bring the motor canoe, too if anyone is interested. I'm considering "Plan-D" for a boat to carry along when we go camping, and may sell the canoe.

 

But now it almost time to go out to the old garop and begin sanding all that poxy. Oh, joy....

I haven't bought plane tickets down yet, but I'm planning on coming. I'll probably do the same thing I did last year......fly to Raleigh, rent a car and drive in. I may camp this year. We'll see. It's tough to fly and bring enough stuff to camp.

 

Do you have any sanding tips? I put the second coat of goop on at 5 am this morning.

Sanding tips?  Here's mine:  listen to smooth, mellow, relaxing music when filleting and epoxying; your work will be better, therefore less sanding.  When sanding turn on your heavier, more aggressive and faster tunes.

Steve,

 

If it will work out better for you, fly into Newbern. One of us can pick you up and return you to the airport.

 

If you want to bring your sleeping bag, you can sleep on Chick's old OB20.

Hi guys, we “plan” to be there with Southern Express!  We missed last year because of some minor work that went into overtime,  but have every intention of getting there a few days early to enjoy the local sailing area. 

Hope to see everyone there!

Look forward to seeing you again Jay.

 

Steve:  yes, we will be bringing our boat.  No name on her yet.  Hope you can make it.

Just booked my flight in to Raleigh. Totally Stoked. I'm lucky to travel a lot for work, so with frequent flyer mileage the flight cost $11 dollars. Arriving at B & B Friday afternoon! See you then. Obviously no boat this year, but next year, god willing and the creek don't rise, two boats!

 

BTW, if anyone is flying in and needs a ride from Raleigh, pm me.

Primer day. It's going to have to sit for a week while I go sailing in the thousand islands with some friends. But it feels to get a coat on her. It's like drywall. That first coat reveals all!

I've been thinking about all my friends down south. I'm hoping the hype isn't real. Please stay safe.

 

I live in NY in a suburb of Rochester. My door is open if you need somewhere to go. The snow won't come for a few months.

In case you all think I'm slacking, I've taken the approach that since sailing is done here in NY, I'd add a few details. Below is a shot of my Yeti coffee (yes, it was worth 30 bucks) in it's new recess in the cabin step. You will also note the electrical system, which is done (more later) short of a few wire fasteners to tidy things up. The only thing left in the cabin is to make a few gear hammocks and to design some gear pockets to add to the unpainted aft cabin. I'm not above copying others good ideas.

 

Everything is faired and primed above decks. Paint will go on next Monday after live advice in NC.

It will prevent my coffee cup from sliding at anchor. The other side is for Suzanne's cup, which she's getting for Xmas in her stocking. Pretty darn romantic I'd say!

Excellent idea Steve.  I can see B&B revising their plans and boat description to include cupholders now . . . "The CS20.3 now comes with 8 cupholders"!

Brilliant. My wife once picked a car based on the appeal of it's cupholders. Really. To be honest, I'll probably add a bottleport on the deck. I have one on a sunfish and one on my Sea Pearl. Amazing.

OK, I need help. The drawing of the waterline is difficult to read and I'm at the hull painting stage. My interpretation of what I'm seeing:

  1. The "bottom paint" extends 1.5 inches above the DWL.  This is my most important question for today as I'm ready to paint the hull.
  2. The top of the "boot strip" is  4.5" above the DWL at the bow and extends to the bottom paint (1.5" up form DWL). This is shown on the Outboard profile of the plan set but contradicts the "boot strip" plan sheet I got which may show the top at 5"
  3. The middle of the "boot stripe" is 2" thick 1.5 inches up from the DWL.
  4. The aft end is really hard to read. Maybe the "boot stripe" extends from 1.5 above DWL to 2 3/8"

My plan is to pain the hull color (grey in honor of Carlita's first EC) down to 1.5 above DWL and put the boot stripe over it later.

I'll defer to Graham, et al, but the edges of the bottom paint line and boot stripe lines all need to be parallel to the WL.  The bottom paint line and boot top lines are *not* a constant thickness throughout. The boot stripe will likely be wider at bow and stern than in the middle of the boat.

No, that isn't right.  It needs to extend much more than that.  Are these the drawing you are looking at?

OK, I must be dense as I am more confused as ever with this comment. Am I correct that the drawing shows the bottom of the boot stripe to be parallel with the DWL and 1.5" up? I'm getting the 1.5 from the "Outboard Profile" or cover page of the plans. If so, I plan to paint the grey to it and then pace the boot stripe over the grey. Maybe you didn't do that?  But then wouldn't you have to tape the curved part things twice?
