SCAMP is way under the minimum size that the USCG will document - A documented vessel is one that is registered by the Federal Government through the U. S. Coast Guard, rather than titled and numbered by a state. Pleasure vessels of 5 net tons and over (26 feet in length and up) may be documented, a...

Bronze and aluminum don't play well together. Safer using stainless (not perfect) or aluminum screws (depends on loads expected).

[So with an offset centerboard to starboard and capsize to port would it not mean that all of weight associated with the centerboard is now on the the high side?[/quote] So little weight in the centerboard, just enough to keep it down and not float, that it doesn't do much for righting the boat ... ...

Is that boom angle so bad?... :|

I tried to reduced the size but it was still too large. The modern cellphone camera takes very large photos. For quick and simple size reduction on a PC I use PAINT and reduce the image percentage to 15% of original. On my phone, Android based, I used PHOTORESIZER. I notice now I typed incorrectly ...
