Nice work everybody, you all have comments up on your posts, looking for a couple edits/additions here and there. Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow for a final finish. Here is something i got referred to from the multihull boat builders list i’m on – this guy is really good: epoxy_basics_e-book

I sailed these a lot back in a middle school program called HMS Crew. We used it for both sailing and sandbar/mangrove explorations of local marine habitats in Miami. More to follow! 🙂

2. I will turn on your posting/editing access as soon as you do that.

here’s the gist of the last email and a couple of pictures at the end of a 38 bolger in process.
read this page for a good guide to epoxy seams: http://www.jimsboats.com/webarchives/2003/15aug03.htm
and browse http://www.jimsboats.com/ he’s been designing and building very simple cheap boats for a while and publishing all his insights…

and from jason:
1) Houseboat Concept 38′
Micro cruising sailboat aka “Water Beetle 10”
3) Staysail Daysailer
Sail – 4,000lbs displ. Aft-mast Daysailer – keel sharpie, no mainsail, all jib
Bonus find!!! I think every liberal arts college on the water should have its own Viking longboat replica for more great group uses and experiences. Can become the NCF Flagship, exploring “new horizons.” 🙂
4) Viking Longship
247sf sail, 14 oars
Built by Willi Hesse, replica of Viking longboat
