Certainly looks like something Graham Bantock might have built a long time ago. I would email him with the photo and find out, unless someone knows here.

Grahms email is sailsetc@compuserve.com I believe

Any way to get the MS Excel doc posted here to view? It would be great to see just who placed where when.

Jack line question ...

Jack line legality? Was wondering if I set my mast up like the following, if it would be class legal. I am thinking about a jack line setup with cotter pins. I would drill a hole all the way through the mast, insert the cotter pin, bend over the ends on the outside of the leading edge of the mast an...

......on this topic also, there is a new concern about moving ballast "I" believe, and that's the new thinking of having a bulb with adjustable canting by the turning of a couple of screws or bolts on the bottom of the bulb. How does one monitor this during a regatta? Adjusting the angle of your bul...

.... thanks for the good info you gave me here. The boat is finished and has been test sailed. I'm very happy to say that it seems to sail very well! Boat, ready to sail, came in 8.5 oz light which I was quite happy, and surprised, about. Some photos .... http://members.tripod.com/ghmyc_1m/3crown.html

I know there has been some bad rap on these, but I use 5 of them now, some for three years, and I've never had any problems.

Light, fast , strong, and very easy to adjust.

Note that the downloadable Zipper plans are not really right. The shadows are a bit off. If you want to build one of these then I would go directly to the US1M class secretary and get them from him, $3.00 USD. There is a new Zipper out now called the Zipper III. Quite a different boat.

:D Thanks all, real good answers. Rainer, super nice job on the Arrow.

Please, keep it coming as I'm currently starved for this knowledge. I've wanted to build a boat for about 15 years now and I finally took the time to start this Monday. Can't wait to get onto the next one!

MORE PLEASE! :P

Roy,

It's a wood hull with a coat of epoxy. I was just curious how I was doing so far as I think it will be heavy for sure. Any weight will help me to see if I am at least on track.

Thanks!

Hull weights?

Hope I'm not posting something that's already here.

What's a good hull weight target for a well built homebuilt IOM. I'm talking bare hull with nothing else. No deck, nothing. Just hull with transom.

Thanks, :roll:

"Epoxy is toxic"

I am wondering it just what ways working with West Systems would be harmful to me if in deed it is. Is it to the touch or with breathing fumes? Just how much epoxy work would I have to do in order to start worrying about this?

It's unfortunate though that they are so hard to get in the states. I race the Mist and it continues to impress most that sail with me, including myself. I might believe that I am the only one in the states with this boat?

Hey roger, It would probably help to know what hull you are using. Some hulls will have a tendency to do this more easily then others. The first thing you need to do though, skipper wise, is to stay off the rudder till the boat picks up speed. If your boat is digging in and rounding up, try not corr...

Our club has come to adopt the windward leeward course with the windward offset and leeward gate. Prior to this we mostly sailed the triangle, but would often do so in Olympic fashion adding a final windward leeward led.

I think the bigger question here Steve is just where it is 'supposed' to be placed. On a hull like the Italico, or an Errica, can it be either on the raised deck or where the mast enters the lower deck, or anywhere in between? We were just having this discussion at our club a couple of weeks ago.

Cold weather storage

Thought this might be a good place to ask. Does it damage our fiberglass HULLs, or carbon since I’m asking, to store them in an area that is not heated during the winter.
