My sailing grounds are protected 60 acre to 150 acre inland lakes. My concept of a tiller tamer is something to keep the tiller from flopping about for the few short minutes it takes me to raise or lower sail(s). I would not securely lash the tiller, as shown in your photo, but rather something that...

Your setup looks like the solution, especially after doing research into the cost and availability of curved track traveler. I am still in the making little bits of wood from bigger bit phase of construction. So like many other ideas, I will squirrel it away until it is time to put to use. I also li...

Would there be an advantage to installing a curved traveler on the transom cap, vs the designed rope horse? Or would it just make the boat more complicated? Pictures of the arched traveler mounted across the transom of Art Haberland's GP14, in the General Discussion section, has sparked my interest.

If anyone is interested I have created an electronic version of the Nesting diagram. Some people suggest building a model to familiarize themselves with the construction process. I took the route of redrawing the plans using Draftsight, a 2D free CAD tool. One of the reasons for doing this is yields...

The rasp generates copious amounts of fairly fine saw dust. So far about 1/3 of a coffee can. Can I use this sawdust as woodflour?

Sorry my bad, I had mis-read the original. Somehow had it my head that upwind was less stable. Must be getting old.

Well, taking the CB out of the equation, then my other thought would have to do with wind and water. When I used to sail in the Mississippi river there were two currents to deal with, the surface and subsurface. In the fall, when the water levels were low, the Corps of Engineers would nearly close t...

Just an observation from a noob, in your photo, the boat is capsized onto it's Port side. 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?

Sorry I really need to learn to proof read. I meant to write this with out the word "not". . . . I would not expect the gunter ( aka High Peaked gaff) would be close to the characteristics of your current marconi rig. . . . . Meaning that I think that a gunter rig should perform about like...

Though I know very little with regard to boat design, I tend to agree with Michel. I would not expect the gunter ( aka High Peaked gaff) would be close to the characteristics of your current marconi rig. It should allow you to lower your mast height. Is it just me or the boom of that gaff really hig...
