Welcome to the community. I am still building my Scamp and have no Scamp sailing experience, but there are many here who do.

Congrats on your purchase.

After dry fitting the frames the centerboard gap appears to be larger on the aft end. CBgapFrwd.jpg While traveling through Chattanooga TN, earlier this year, I stopped and picked up roughly 48 board feet of air dried, 4 quarters, rough-sawn, Cypress to use for the cleats, carlins and centerboard sl...

She is Now 3D (sort of). I built a Jig to support the Centerboard while glassing. The jig allows me to flip the board back and forth to do each side. CenterboardGlassingJig.jpg I modified the building base somewhat, so that it does not get in the way of putting a rolling bevel the bottom panel. Inti...

I will indeed. I am building my first and she is now 3D (meaning I have the jig built and the bottom of the boat screwed to it.) I have tomorrow off. I plan to dry fit frames 4-7 and the centerboard case. I cut the case per the plans, but realized it is too narrow for my board, will need to widen it...

Pretty. I would imagine you would need to dramatically reduce the size of the Main to compensate for the size of the Jib and Topsail. From what I understand the original 100 sq ft balanced lug makes for a fairly over-hatted 12 foot boat in anything but light winds.

Varnish isn't for long-term below water applications. A couple of days or so it is fine. After that water will migrate into the varnish and then into the wood. Even coating the wood with epoxy will not work if you then varnish as the varnish will fail as it isn't for below waterline applications. 1...

So what I am reading into this discussion is that I if I ever put my Stuart Mariner back into salt water, that need to sand off the 12 coats of spar varnish that I used to finish the solid mahogany rudder blade that I built and replace it with a couple coats of Epoxy? Thankfully Iowa is along way fr...
