Re: gh 31 boom track for ketch rig and weatherhelm

Hello Gary, Sadly no sail plan available here, other than the ones on the site, but looking at a picture of the GH 31 La Corbeau, it appears that the main sheet is anchored to the mizen mast about head height, when sat in the cockpit! Re the Weather helm, I cannot say for sure, but I would suspect t...

Sadly we have no difinitive numbers for the Barbicans produced and the waters were middied slightly by there being s few home completions and even a few of the earlier Atlantic clippers hulls built to look like Barbican, without the Capt Pugwash aft ca...

Re: Eventide 24 - Tamarisk *URGENT*

Well they never replied to us.... wonder why they mailed and posted if they do not respond?

Sadly Tamarisk looks like a wreck. Will take a good deal of effort and loads of pennies to restore her. Wish them well with the auction, maybe there is that person out there.

Re: Is this an Eventide?

Think you are right Chris, not really enough to say it is an Eventide.

The top looks like one, but is it 24 or 26ft long? The keel looks like it is too... but the stern is very different...

Re: Sailing characteristics Golden Hind

Certainly that will do it, I added weight forward in the form of internal lead ingots fastened to the keelson, so when I leave the boat, it is very slightly nose down, but the weight of crew in the cockpit cancels this. Batteries and tanks are stowed amidships, I built them in that way after learnin...

Re: Building a new Eventide

Hello all, perhaps I can help and clarify the situation regarding the European Recreational Craft Directive and regulations Anyone in the EU can build a boat outside of these regulations and it is quite legal to launch it and use it.

This meant the leeward bilge plate was angled up to windward! Clever. However we have found that adding a profi...
