In this first article of the series, we are looking at a project called Silberfisch from Germany. The clever use of the height can be see by the bedroom which is located at the second storey. I had a head wind at times of 5 to 10 MPH, and was still able to make very satisfactory headway. Anyway, there I was happily noodling around the other day when it suddenly slipped into my consciousness that I forgot to send you one of the neat EC pics.
Here are a couple of updated pics of this years TX 200 PDR which I have named Tenacious Turtle. I am adding a bilge pump with thru hull fittings leading from the cockpit and the cabin and leaving through the stern.
The vehicle inspection bureau mainly deals with issues inpsection and not driving laws but often times there is an overalp. Now, no doubt about it, if this trailer is greater than 4500 lbs, then when you get the trailer inspected these lighting assemblies must be on the trailer at the time of inspection in order to meet the trailer inspection requirements. If the trailer is less than the 4500 lbs, and its not required to be inspected then we get into another grey area of transporting something that is fairly large which then I think would be ok to place the lighting assemblies on the boat.
I am also going to pass this question onto a local inspection field supervisor and ask him about the portable mounted lighting systems.
I mounted my trailer lights on removable wood parts that easily come off the trailer, so I'm good.
I went and visited Dave Perillo the other day, had a good chat about his progress and got him to email some more pics over.
Just as a by the way, those tools you see on the bench behind are about all he has to his name, a neighbour cut his stringers on a table saw, and thats about it.
I have started to play with the location of the halyard on the standing lug sails you made for me, as you know the halyard location is very important for the set of the sail. MILPITAS, CA - (April 8, 2009) – SPOT LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Globalstar Inc.

It's an isolated community in Plaquemines Parish, located along the banks of the Grand Bayou. Just wondering some of the boats are in effect pontoon boats but wouldn't it be easter tohave a flat bottom all the way acrost and therefore less draft?

These bright and clean houseboat decorations from Rost Niderehe Architects were looking contrast with the outdoor layouts of this mobile living space.
In this series, we are going to highlight a few exceptions that will change your mind on how modern a small houseboat designs can look. It is a 431 sq ft space designed by Flo Florian and Sascha Akkermann of Confused-Direction, the main motivation is to make the entire houseboat look slick and modern. Outside of the main house, there is front pouch and a roof that adds a sense of additional space to the entire houseboat.
Contemporry shelves and kitchen ware lined the walls to free up the center space and create a sense of openness. This idea is so simple and full of common sense, it makes you wonder why more of us didn't think of it. That new automatic sculling device looks really neat; looking forward to seeing that in May, assuming you'll be using it. On tiny boats it is always a problem to maintain balance when the load shifts--one person in the stern vs.
I know the lateen does not reef but I can always drop the main and sail under jib alone if the weather gets harsh.
I still have to touch up the paint and finish the hatches but she is almost ready to float. I haven't attached it to the deck yet that's why there are no screws showing in the photos. Thanks Chuck - sail and bag are perfect, and the Egyptian Cotton color is easy on aging eyes. I made a very simple taper jig by cutting a piece of pine the thickness of the staves and six feet long (length of the taper), then used two way tape to stick a taper strip on the top which bears against the table saw ripping guide. On April 21, 2009, I will be doing a free Teleseminar titled, 8 Steps to Build the Boat of Your Dreams.

If one were to travel there, he or she would take Highway 23 to a small road paved with oyster shells, follow that for nearly a mile and then continue by boat a short distance to the community, where they would find a number of homes and shrimp boats, but no streets.
Anyway, as you know waterproof GPS units frequently aren't, or give up after a prolonged exposure. You should find a way to mention it on the Watertribe forum, as sculling is sometimes discussed there.
I thought about adding a red pinstripe between the red and blue on the sides and bow to break up the color and to cover my less than perfect masking job on the sides.
I know that does not sound like much sail but I was actualy hitting high 5s under jib alone on the first day of the TX 200 last year. I have included some pictures for your scrunity and if you will run her as an ad I will send on some copy, I am getting too old for this kind of boat.
I found the nylon straps very handy for clamping and they pop right off after the epoxy cures. This will be for those who are brand new to building a boat and would like to get more information on what Glen-L provides and how to get started. With the bow-to-stern center seat design it is easy to shift positions to keep balanced but that still leaves the problem of where to put the oars.
