30757Re: [bolger] Re: sputtering 4 strokes
- Sep 4, 2003From SA's writeup on the cruising version:
"Finally, the house top has those two hatches, two handholds, but could also have fishing rod and boat-hook holders, with over lengths extending ahead of the house without 'poking your eye out'. Indeed a couple of sweeps could be carried for a rowing geometry of your devising - should you have the urge. "
They do fine in light airs. Mine not so well as the lighter daysailers, but not two bad.
You can get the plans for the sheet ply version from Payson for $60.
About $300 for the plans from PCB&F, but they include "all versions".

Just curious, what does PCB say about this,
on the plans, or do the plan notes mention rowing,
or sculling? And/or what did he write about
the motor? [not having ever seen Chebacco plans]
BTW, how many sheets in a Chebacco set, and
what do they cost?
I bet in the third world, many boats bigger
than this get sculled or rowed. If all you
had to do was manuever to the dock, or whatever,
How is Chebacco in light winds?
