Thanks Graham and Matt, You have basically confirmed my existing thoughts. The other question running around inside my head was regarding the transom knees and breasthook, I was dreading trying to bore an accurate hole from inside to out. I will run a few trials on manufacturing plugs, if unsuccessf...

Inner & outer sheer attachment

I am building the Glen L 'Fife' in S & G. Sorry John, there I go using that '&' thing again :oops: . I have a question regarding the attachment of the inner and outer sheers. The plans and instructions are quite clear and easy to understand as you would expect from Glen L, although it calls for the ...

Hey, we just set our clocks BACK an hour, so where does that put us?????? We even had an Act of Government to delay this due to the running of the Commonwealth Games here in my home city, Melbourne.

It has been about 10 years since I had anything to do with outboards so I may be way of base here, but it surprises me that there isn't a 'manufacturer' out there that has developed a 50's look-a-like motor. The after market parts industry is huge and the manufacture of cowlings etc to 'hide' a mode...

I have just recieved my plans for the 'Fife'. I can't give you any idea about costs in your part of the world but the plans and building instructions are easy to understand. If you have a friend that is even moderately experienced in woodworking you won't have any troubles at all. Have a look at the...

I'm a shovel lowrider man personally, but that is just me. I found (in another lifetime, or should I say lifestyle) that I could punt the lowrider around in stop start traffic with ease, but I suppose thats why it is called a lowrider :!: You're absolutely right about all the different types of bike...

Just under 30 deg C here in the Southern Hemisphere today(well, in my part of it anyway :D ). I am the opposite I am waiting with baited breath for the snow to start falling. Although, our snow here is a pale imitation of your Northern Hemisphere stuff. Good snow to be had over in NZ as they are a b...

The Great Loop

For John Bowen, Hey John - I have just been checking out your photos on your msn page and noticed a map showing the Great Loop. Is this actually a navigable passage??? If so, what a fantastic voyage to undertake. Although, I would want to time my run around the Gulf Coast appropriately given the cov...

Dale, 45 years of marriage! You and your wife are to be congratulated, it is a very rare thing these days.

It is an account of the singlehanded circumnavigation of the world by an Australian teenager, Jesse Martin, who became the youngest person ever to accomplish the feat at age 16 or 17.
