Next project.

Recommended Posts

The one I am (slowly) building is a skylark 4'

My daughter is 18 months at the moment, I want to chuck her in this summer when she is about 2. If she can walk and run, she is old enough to row....

 

If you want to see how it looks in real life, I'm in pt chev.

My ding is a lightweight ply one quite similar to that SkyLark. Haven't measured but I reckon it's around 6'8". It rows sweet, does 5kts with one aboard and a Yammy 2hp on the back. Tows well even at speed and sails so good we are still unbeaten, even with my svelte frame in it. Rig is a Laser type, 2 bit mast and pocket luff.

 

When I've got the 930 stuff out of my cave I'm going to take a mold off it and bag out a carbon foam one. I reckon I can make for at about 4-4.5kg.

I've ordered the plans for the Skylark 4', and a book on building in the stitch and glue method. Now my only challenge is getting the shed tidy enough for a small and simple project.

Just about finished the little praam. Only need to sand, paint and varnish, build spars, and a rudder and a centreboard.

 

And saw it in half.

 

That job is scheduled for tomorrow once the epoxy base coat has hardened up a little. Any words of comfort before I take to it with a saw appreciated.dinghy.jpgdinghy1.jpg
