Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

It is not a "straker" but a "stringer" that l need to install on either side (inside) to further strengthen her. Also a bulhead at three quarter bow though l think that is more if l put on a sailing rig. A square sail would look good. Flotation??

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Have you heard of a "flex agent" that you add to the two pack paint? Could be the go.

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Thanks John, the planks are chamferred and glued to each other so in effect it is similar to stich and glue with the ribs acting as a formwork. One reasons I'm enamoured to this boat as it seems be a transition period when they first started using formwood (plywood) but still used steamed ribs and c...

Re: SD For Sale (again) in Scotland

No worries! I'm in OZ so a bit far from me to buy. Nice bracket. Original chain, pin and V bracket. You don't often see those complete.

Re: Vessel befitting a Seagull at last.

Amazingly enough I was working on her today and yesterday. Yep, Chrissy probably is doable. Three planks scarfed and ready to put in and then a few shorter bits to be cut, scarfed and installed. I succumbed to using power tools ie angle grinder for scarfs and multi tool for trimming. Tried to get co...

Re: SD For Sale (again) in Scotland

Oooh! I don't have yours on the SD register. There is a cluster of SDP's around that # range. For the uninitiated the SDP is the wartime version with the direct drive box. The SDP only appears to represent about 10% of the SD's produced. May l ask you some questions ie the JM magneto number which is...

I think your grey fergie would be more my style. Now that would look good in a lounge room. Might have trouble getting it through the front door though.
