Photo Gallery

The pictures below are 'thumbnails' of photographs which have been uploaded by members to show their boat or details of her junk sail/s or rigging. The idea is to provide a quick way of seeing:

  • the huge range of boats (mono-hulls and multihulls) that can be built for or converted to junk, and
  • the variety of rigs, from single sail to schooner, flat-panelled to cambered

How to use

Where members gave their images captions, extracts appear below; roll over it to see the full text. Click an image to enlarge it, then use the 'Next' and 'Back' buttons to scroll. Images shuffle along as new ones are added.


Please try to give each image a caption so we know whose boat it is, her name, model, length, type of rig and any further info, eg "... showing her downhaul system".

  • Started drilling out the holes for Hydrovane vane frame. I drill with a spade bit from both sides first, to prevent it splitting out, then drill a few small holes around the edge to help the final cut
  • Replacement Hydrovane frame I am building. That's as much drilling as my 30£ drill and two batteries could manage in one day. I'm trying to reduce the weight without losing too much strength.
  • Diamond netting I made, 80mm diamonds, 3mm 12 strand polyester that the fishermen use for net repairs.

  • Handsewn Bosun's Chair. See me using it solo here -
  • Handsewn Mastboots. Velcro opening aft for adjusting wedges, neoprene gasket sewn to inside lower edge.
