Re: Light schooner
With the bulkheads you dont need fillit with the logs. I filleted
mine because I used PL premium for side to bulkhead glue. I fillited
for added security.
Concerning buttblock for the sides, if I had it to do again I would
use Dynamite's method of taped joints. I had to do alot of fairing to
get my sides looking presentable.
I would definitely build the boat with scarfed logs. They are an
intrical part of the boat design. That is alot of sail for such a
light boat. The stress without the logs may tear the boat apart with
just stich and glue method.

- George,I'd love to see pics of your schooner. I have the plans but haven't started that one yet. I am currently restoring an Alberg Seasprite 23 and already have a Bolger gypsy's shapes cut but nothing assembled yet as I took possession of the Seasprite.The light schooner is one of my favorite designs.
Sent from my iPhonefacebook does the nag screen now on most if not all their listings if you are not a facebook member. A feeble attempt for more members. Now, having said that --ENOUGH AGAIN with the facebook stuff- people either like it or have no use for it (I happen to as do many people not like it. However if this nagging keeps going on and on the yahoo group will start losing more members- me for one. If I wanted a bunch of drama I would join facebook .Excuse me while I go sail my light schooner. Buy a book read it and share with your friends and be happy.Take care all.George ScheckOn Tuesday, July 12, 2016 5:46 PM, "'John Kohnen' jhkohnen@...

advantage to blocking the public from viewing the Bolger FB group?
As you might have guessed, I'm one of those who will not do Facebook.
Aside from privacy concerns it's just too d***ed annoying...
I like the Yahoo groups because I can read and reply to postings using
email, without having to bother with Web pages. There's wonderful stuff
on the WoodenBoat forum, but I rarely visit it becaue of its Web only

Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.
