Sounds like a good choice. What is your rational for the stainless?

I too always have two anchors ready to go -- a bruce and a delta. Both are oversized for extra insurance. Like you, I also have 6' of chain on my primary anchor, the delta. I want the chain for chafe resistance since on Lake Superior there are rocks and sunken logs.

Ahoy,

Got the stainless anchor as a gift for the ship! Put so much work into this little boat that I figured I’d get her a present of a shiny anchor. 11lb Bruce on my Compac 16 is galvanized and works great.

Hi Everyone,

Been busy and haven't put time in on the 'ole ship for a couple weeks. This weekend I got to fiberglassing and epoxy coating the hull. Cold snap today 10 degrees F here this morning....

Thanks Mr. Jhippe! Your work is looking great. Is your shop heated, such that you can continue work over the winter? I am very pleased with my heater as it has proven itself to keep my garage at a good working temperature....at least to an outside temp of 10deg a couple days ago...

Today I got the third coat of epoxy on the hull, and I got the skegs on. That super big bead of white glue on the skegs is silica-thickened epoxy. Photo's below, and better detail on argobuilder.com.

We will be skiing soon, so looking forward to that...and then maple tree tapping....but as I close in on finishing the boat, I can't help but look forward to spring. I found a good deal on a trailer in Beaver Dam and drove up and got it this weekend.

Hey Jason, skegs look great.

As for my garage, I have a propane heater that I have not really used yet. I also have some smaller electric heaters and a 220v heater but not wired for 220v in garage.

I am contemplating closing in one stall of the garage with plastic to create a smaller space to heat. Will be playing around with different configurations with heater and space to see what I can rig up that will provide adequate heat and safety.

Helo Pawb,

For those of you in the Unol Daleithiau, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Sanded skegs and applied the final large fillet to them. Then I faired and sanded the hull. That was a real bear, glad to be done with that. Now I am on to varnishing and painting, and also building a boarding ladder.

Have a Super Day!

Jason,

Oooooh, I love the look of that boarding ladder. Might you be able to provide more details and measurements? I will be installing a boarding strap, as invented by Howard, but I might like one of these in addition to the boarding strap.

Hi,

Here's the basic design of the boarding ladder and a few photos. More detail/steps/photos than I can post here, may be found at http://www.argobuilder.com/wooden-board ... -argo.html

The boarding ladder on my Compac 16 is 10" wide with rungs 10" apart vertically; I like that ladder, so the one I am building is similar in dimension.
