can you just strap the ginny pole to the boom while storing/sailing? Do the "ears" obstruct free movement of the boom?

Hey Phil, I'm researching DIY CNC router tables. Can you make any recommendations? The purpose of the table would be for my F-85 build.

Your best bet would be to talk to Mark. He built his own CNC machine and did all my CNC work.I'll send you a message with his email address.


I know that the voices in my head aint real,
but they have some pretty good ideas.

Thanks. I got the PM. A question on your hull paint. Did you end up covering the 2 pack paint with an epoxy barrier coat below the water line? I'm trying to determine if I will apply barrier coat on top of my paint. My boat is trailer sailed, but may end up in the water for up to a week at a time.

No I didn't. A week in the water isn't a problem if you give the bottom a scrub before you pull it out of the water. Not much boat in the water so it is pretty easy.

That's music to my ears. I determined I'd be OK, but there are a lot of "experts" on the forums that spoke otherwise.

Phill,

As I understand from the main forum, this catsailor site/board may soon close or become defunct as Rick's family has very little interest in continuing it.

Is all of this wonderful build information available elsewhere in case that happens? Your work on the boat (and documentation here) is a veritable gold mine (and eye candy) of information

Jay,

I have a backup of everything that I have posted including the missing photos that were lost when this site's photo albumn stopped working. I also have many hundreds of other photos.

If this site goes down I will most likely edit what I have adding in the missing photos plus any others that I think may help and put it all somewhere else.

You can save up to 7kg by using dyneema netting as opposed to vinyl coated fablock type of netting. You can also save a lot of money because it is very easy to finish the edges without sewing. I finished the edges of my nets and fitted them for a cost of around $100 ea. I got a really good deal on the dyneema netting from ebay. For anyone looking at replacing their nets it could be worth a check of ebay first. Look for Golf practice nets. Mine are dyneema SK75.

Here is a pic of the net. It still needs to be taken off so the wing net rail can be painted.
When I do that I'll redo the edges and trim the excess netting now it has stopped creeping.
