    I’ll go with a more sofisticated system. 

    Can anyone recommend a composting alternative?

    Yeah Scott. Luckily I’ve got most of the materials. Prices are going up fast. Lead going at twice the price now.

    That is an impressive amount of fir coming together perfectly at the bow. The boat is looking really good.

    I was at the big box home improvement store the other day and I happened to check the price on marine grade fir plywood. Then I went home and made sure the leftover scraps I already own are stored flat and dry in my garage, away from the rain.

    I swear the prices, now, are something like double what they were 2 years ago. I think you bought the wood for your project at the right time.

    Ja Rudolf. To cold for glue, but  Long John is helpful whilst dryfitting all the bits and pieces.

    Should be done with all that when temperatures are getting there.

    Good work Frederik, nice to see your progress.

    Not too cold for gluing etc?

    Regards Rudolf

    Some progress on the 34

    Deck beam construction is now dry fitted in place. Waiting for higher temperatures before glueing & screwing. 

    Still lots of interior stuff to fit before putting the ply/lycell 100 (Dyvinicell equivalent) deck on.

    Frederik it is interesting how Paul has led the tail end of the single sheet back to the leech end of the bottom boom batten then forward, then down to the deck and then only back to the aft end of the coach house.

    I think I know his reasoning but perhaps you or Paul may care to elaborate?

    Nothing new or original with leading the sheet back to the hatchway in this manner. I had it on LC and Annie and Pete had it on Badger, Annie also had it on Fantail and now on Fanshi.  

    If you don't lead all your lines back to the hatch/pramhood you are missing out on a key feature of the junk rig. Namely the ability to control the sail without having to go on deck.

    To get the full benefits of a junk, you need to understand that there are three components that make up the whole package. Namely the junk rig, the Hasler pramhood in its circular hatch and the selfsteering windvane that can be operated from the hatch. On a modern boat I'd add a good autopilot that also must be operatable from the hatch.

    The 3(4) together make for a boat that is easy and safe to operate at sea, and setup correctly, you almost never have to go on deck.

    Thompson rig for HF34


    Paul Thompson has drawn up a new sail plan for the HF 34, based on la Chica’s foresail.

    The mast is now further aft, out of the bunk and the interior layout up forward suits me better.

    The CE stays the same, which is important to me as I want to keep the mizzen.   

    I’ve discussed Paul’s design with Chris Morejohn and he thinks it’s good.  

    So do I. 

    Feel free to comment.
