Re: Sailing characteristics Golden Hind

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.

Re: Golden Hind restoration

I would agree with Chris about epoxy and new build and also that you would have to be very careful not to epoxy in trouble on older boats. All has to be scrupulously clean and rot free! As for designing out problems.. Seems to me that most rot problems are associated with leaking decks, so properly ...

Re: Almost all the YM designs

Just checked all the CD's listed against the designs on the specs page. I am assuming that if you are interested in a particular design you would look at the specs page.... As for boat tests, we can only print what we have and do not have actual comparison tests, nor sail tests for the Barrier Reef ...
