Yeah, that was a bit unfriendly of me smile

Of course I have a couch, I even have a full blown guestroom so it is possible to stay for quite some time. Please do come over but complaining about the weather is a "no no" (we are on the seventh week of rain and temps around 3-5degC now).
I can not seem to make a dent in the whisky department so any help there is appreciated. grin I am running low on the japanese "Gould&Gould" though.

Holland ranks as the 6th best country to live, its like Norway but warmer. grin
Forecast for tomorrow is 19c and 20 knot winds, too bad I have to work.
This summer has been extremely good anyway with some of the best sailing ever, I'm surprised we dont rank higher because of this.

Maybe we should make a list of which country is the best place to live for a sailor! smile

I'm Corsican. Best place for sailing ever.

But I live in the UK. Sometimes I'm wondering why.

There has to be a woman involved in that history. Corcica/France or the UK..

Sure I have. They are an unique breed with good and bad sides like everybody else smile
The french endorse multihull sailing, got to like that.

Now corcicans I have never spent time with but they seems like an interesting people. A people unleashing Napoleon , being part of shaping king Carl Johan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_XIV_John_of_Sweden) and inventing the "vendetta" must be quite something.

I was wondering what it would take for you to re join us. I know that he who shouldn't be named hasn't been here for a long time but I wasn't expecting you to chime in on this thread. Welcome back Codblow, what happened at the Scottish Stealth Champs etc etc.

I'm not going anywhere the water's cold... the tropics are where you want to sail. If you have to wear a wetsuit to sail you can keep it... Sydney or Hawaii is about the coldest I would go to sail....

To be fair guys all us foreigners, be it NZ, French, Scotish, Welsh all live here by choice, no point wingeing about it. As to why, its called a good safe bet for work and employment with a safe bet of weather and housing.

Now for me those things never really came into it, just the best looking women in the world seem to walk up and down the streets on a daily basis smirk

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder but one should always look at the mother in law for future reference.

Built the mold using plywood. Flat sides make this easier and quicker to build. The key to boat building is finishing it before you run out of steam. [Linked Image]

I covered the mold with the plastic film that is used here to cover books, I think its PVC. Then my friend Kenn and I tacked the foam to the frame with nails.

The foam is roughed out using japanese Ryoba saw, 60 grit sandpaper and an Olfa paper cutter. At this stage I have only used a week of my annual leave... one more week and its back to work... [Linked Image]

Technical stuff

Divinycell foam H80 thickness 10mm is used throughout except for the transom, major bulkheads and the area around where the centreboard exits which use H160 density.

Strip are cut to apporx 13-15mm width for strip planking using a large Olfa paper cutter and an aluminium channel for a guide. H80 cuts like medium density balsa wood and H160 like heavy balsa... no need to get a circular saw. No dust with a cutter...

I fiiled in the gaps in the strips with epoxy mixed with lighweight filler. I didnt edge glue it while assembling but put it all together with nails and tape and after the foam strips are in place I went over it with a spackle knife. On the first day I filled in the gaps between the nails and the tape, then after the epoxy cured 12 hrs later I removed the nails and tape and spackled the rest of the hull.

Applying plastic to the mold, tacking the foam to the mold and the first pass of spackling took a whole day working from 9am to 11pm with my friend helping me out for most of the time.
