Chuck, I am making some progress on the Walkabout, and have put some pictures on Flickr if you would like to see where your parts are going.

Hi Chuck, Would you consider posting a link for ?

It has a growing number of wooden boat photos and art that your readers might enjoy. Thanks so much for your time and consideration!

I love the magazine. I'm working on my first boat, a Stevenson Pocket Cruiser, and I welcome visits and encouragement at my blog. I have lots of stories and photos. Look closely; you might recognize the stainless steel screws. They're from Duckworks Boatbuilders Supply :)

Chuck, It was nice to meet with you last week-end. I stayed with my familly at Lake Bastrop on Sunday, but I could not sail my boat, too much wind again!

Here is a link to my Blog-

There's some new stuff up on my site which may interest some of the boating nuts gathered here.  

Chris Ostlind

Here's a couple of videos of my efforts today on setting up the amas on the Chris Ostlind XCR, for epoxy filleting the chines to the correct angle for glassing inside and out. The top and bottom halves of the amas are joined at the joint shown in the video but because of the lovely curves of the ama and the high volume of the finished hull towards the front end, there's some reasonably tricky wood curvatures to contend with. This is my take on how to do it.

The finished result, ... at left. Something that shouldn't take too much effort to get into place. The final joint is made using a backing strip, epoxied to the bottom half and planed to the appropriate angle to accept the top half.

I'm also pleased, 'cos I'd forecasted 7.5hrs to do what I did in 5 (hrs) today. Yippee.


For the monthly links, a possibly interesting bit on early mariners.

Because you expressed some previous interest in the hands-free electric powered Stream Dancer project, we are excited and pleased to inform you that a patent ‘Notice of Allowance’ has been issued that covers Stream Dancer’s sliding or rocker foot controls, independent foot control of augers used as differential propulsion, sectional boat, and folding dual seat.

Carl and I had a great time Tuesday night talking to you all on the Glen-L Teleseminar, “How to Wire Your Boat and Install a Hydraulic Steering System”. I hope you all found the information useful. For those of you who haven't heard it yet, the replay is available online.

Bruce and I are doing our cruise in a little less than three weeks. I've added our blog's email to the spot "ok" msg list so there will be three updates a day with location/google map. Plus we'll put a link to our spot track on the page.

I have a photo essay about a technique I use for scaling up graphics to put onto your sail or hull. Really simple to do, no special tools needed.


I thought that maybe you might be interested in seeing some photos of a Gunter Rigged Sailboat.

I am an amateur boatbuilder and have been enjoying your site for a while. I built a Scarab 22 by Ray Kendrick.

I wrote up a little piece about our experience at Cedar Key this year. I wasn't in the best of health, but we still had a good time. I noticed a lot of folks pointing cameras at Slider-- I'm hoping some kind soul will offer me a picture or two that I can use on Slider's website. Anyway, a slightly strange experience, but I look forward to going again.

Last week I was on the "Semaine du Golfe" and I've seen many pretty old gaffer boats. I made this video.
