  • Easiest way to go about this is with a plug in the middle, advocated by Bolger and Michalak on the strength of the 'Old Timers'. It gave them a more burdensome, faster, more economical boat. For Michalak's little Toto he ran the sides of the plug strait - no added curve. For MicroTawler you may look more shipshape by adding some. A miniature set of plans is included with many other...

  • This is from MAIB June 15, 2000. The revised leeboard design, developed over several years will correct the tendency of the original leeboard to kite off the hull. The new leeboard design allows both boards to be left down on all points of sailing, and precise adjustment of their position, independant of each other, for control of helm balance and steering steadiness. For instance...

  • Oooh. The 19' 6" version, I presume. If it helps, SBJ #64, Jan 1989. The text reads as though he'd worked it out for that writer, Milton Patrie, with whatever lead time it took for publication. Have ffun! Mark Suzanne: I'll root around and see if I can find the design number. It was designed in the late 80s or early 90s for Small Boat Journal; I think I got the plans in 91 or 92...

  • Here's the Casual Daysailer body plan. I see the original construction just shows a footwell, with butts up on deck. If you could work seats in with your tailbone tucked right into the chine, there'd actually be more power to carry sail. I love camping in my Jewelbox Jr. Phil's idea of using the same space day and night works very well. I'm from the Pacific NW. While it's getting...

  • Well, steady on course yet tacks on a dime is the grail, awright! I think if you look at Jim Michalk's BW designs though, you'll see they all are fuller bodied than Cartoon 40. Your mods added to the longer version, "Might just work." OTH when it gets above 80 degrees f., my BW cabin seems frightfully hot, whatever the theory about breeze flowing down from the sail. Someone else...

  • Gary, I could be wrong, but think C40 not very well suited to the BW cabin, however handsome and able the looks. To be sitting inside makes the house impossibly high. To have any decent width of floor puts that high too. Will need the suggested 150 pounds ballast and more to keep on her feet without hiking out. Though deep bellied for the overall size, as drawn the depth at the...

  • I have not tried them all, just a few brands, but find the Raka formulations milder than the others.
