I was wondering when someone would ask that...

Free set of plans to the first person who guesses.
Dark Side


That wasn't so hard now was it. Where do you want me to send your plans? Of course now you own a set of plans you're obliged to build a boat.

For the record while the DS does stand for Dark Side (in my head anyway) it is a DS12 not a Dark Side 12.

When I get around to building a boat it will be called Ruby Gloom . Make sure you have your speakers turned on when you follow the link. I discovered this cartoon while babysitting my 3 year old niece last month. Some of the music is great.

I hope you didn't let the 3-year-old watch that! <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" /> It sure scared the heck out of me. I'm probably going to have nightmares.

And why would you name a boat for kids "Dark Side"?
Well, maybe you are not building this boat for kids.

Mary read in full, the boat is not called Dark Side 12 , its called DS12.

Next time you watch a feature length cartoon (Shrek etc) take note of the layers. Typically their are two levels of story, one which follows the basic fairy tale for the kids and another that is full of innuendo for the adults.

Unlike a lot of TV cartoons (from bugs bunny through to the crap that is produced these days) Ruby Gloom is very valuable viewing. The key theme behind the series is that no matter what people look like, they are all the same on the inside. Compare that to the Brothers Grimm and their lessons. "If you go walking in the forest you'll either get eaten by a witch or a bear" "No matter how nice your new step mother may appear she is actually evil and either wants you dead or to be her slave". I think I'll take Ruby over Disney.

Doesn't matter. You have already said DS is short for Dark Side, and I think that is bad juju for a sailboat, whether for kids or adults.

And I don't agree with you about that video. It's just plain creepy. Especially with that music. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif" alt="" />

I went to some of the links on the web site (at my own peril), and some of them are even creepier.

No Chris, not hard at all. Very happy to have the plans AND USE THEM, I've been aspiring to build an "F12" of some sort for more than a year now! Thanks again <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> I've sent you a PM.

Mary,

Mary would probably prefer; DS = Demi-sec (medium sweet)

So, the hulls are about ready to be painted (yes I know I'm behind on my blog), so any ideas for the colour for a cat for the kids (still I think it will be difficult to get daddy of this thing...)
Normally all my boats are deep green...

Gato, you need to lure in somebody from an art school there and give him freehand to put some colour and graphics on the boat.
These guys and gals are usually excited to do something like that. (I would be)

Just a wild thought.

Greetings Gato,
I have a question, what type of glass are you using for attaching the chain plates.

On the DS12 I used 2x400g BX +/- 45 deg on hull and 1x400g BX +/- 45 on top. Stil this is a little bit overkill, the same layers of 200g plain would do the job.
Still the far best solution if you have vacuums equipment is to make everything in carbon.
I made that on my Mini 650 and I have been lifting the boat from them(800kgs).
