  • Thanks for all the comments. Chris was very negative, but I look at the Micro Navigator and see what can be done with a Micro, even though it is the complete package as is. I believe that asking questions often gives rise to ideas that would otherwise be missed.

  • Just wondering if anyone has thought of putting chine runners on a Micro similar to Matt Layden's Paradox? Would they reduce leeway at all or just introduce a lot of drag with no benefit? Just a thought. Brent

  • I have studied your photos - a lot of good ideas there! I have just been working out the ply requirements for the Bantam. With some plans Phil set out a cutting plan that was so efficient he must have spent hours arranging all the parts! At present I have got it down to about 6 x 3mm, 18 x 6mm and 7 x 12mm, but that doesn't include the window frames etc. There seem to be as many...

  • Thanks for your reply. I have received the plans and am studying them now. The foam cabin top looks light enough with good insulation. I can run some lighting cables through the foam before laminating. Bob, did you build the steering station as drawn or is yours removable please? I have also found foam for the hull in 25mm, 50mm 100mm and 150mm and I am thinking the 100mm may bend...

  • Thank you Susanne for the suggestion of a worm-gear winch. I haven't looked at them before and they look ideal and very safe. I have plans for your "lily" and was looking at the battery pack adjustment mechanism you designed thinking something like that would also work.

  • Thanks for the reply. Yes, we get quite a bit of sun so I was wondering if the curtains would be sufficient to keep thing cool. Not often we have no wind so with the option of opening both doors etc I think we can keep cool. Another thing I am thinking about is to use folding arms at each corner to support the roof, operated by 12v linear-actuators. Imagine how easy it would be to...

  • Hi all. I am wondering if anyone is building a Bolger Bantam at the moment. The deeper hulls seem a good idea, but I think I would use foam on the main hull bottom only and try and build the "amas" deeper from scratch to save the "retrofit problems". I was out in the sun the other day (southern hemisphere summer!) thinking the full standing headroom and weather protection of the...

  • Must be a real joy to have such an opportunity and such an innovative craft! Have long pondered building a standard Bantam but am sure I would always overload it with "creature comforts"! Glad you are still enjoying yours. Brent

  • When one buys the plans for Bantam #654, does one get the original 16/20 or the one with increased buoyancy or the 24' version please? Or is the longer one another design all together? Interesting boat! Brent --- In bolger@^$1, BruceHallman wrote: > > On Fri, May 4, 2012 at 8:51 AM, captjbturtle wrote: > > > ** > > > > She once sailed to safety with her windsurfer rig...
