    You will have a very pretty boat soon. The topsides look great. 

    Thanks for sharing.

    Foam layer on the deck in place and just about ready to glass. 

    Mast partners block shaped for a 4,5 degree forward rake. 

    Total thickness of deck and block at the partners, about 9 cm. 

    Daggerboard case and mast offset to starboard

    Thanks Annie. 

    Hard to visualize the final result though, being close up in the tent. Got a peek at her looks when turning the hull, which was nice. 

    Shallow draft with standing headroom in the cabin area. Lots of freeboard there. Form follows function.

    I’m counting on some smart color scheme to get it right. You nailed it with Fanshi.

    She's looking really good.  What an attractive profile she is going to have.

    A little update on the HF34. First layer of 10 mm okume ply in place. Extra ply in lieu of daggerboard case and on both sides of the companionway where the winches will be. 

    Next layer will be 14 mm foam core, glued on top of the ply deck. 

    Mast offset approx. 5” to starboard, forward of the daggerboard case.

    Mocking up some of the placement of mast partners, witches and anchor stuff. Just because I can....

    Thanks Paul. Another good option.

    Frederik, I also made my own, used a separator from Strumpet & Trollop in the UK. Not cheap but very well made in GRP. See:


    I'm also totally satisfied.... Yes, do not skip the computer fan, I'm using an 80mm one as it quieter than the smaller ones. Not because of me (I hear nothing) but so that Grasshopper's sensitive ears will not be traumatized when she visits :-).

    I’ll go with a more sofisticated system. 

    Can anyone recommend a composting alternative?

    I built a waterless toilet, (sometimes called composting), for my recent catamaran build. After 18 months of use the toilet has proven to be very successful, maybe the best boat toilet I have ever had, and Annie Hill has a similar toilet in Fanshi which she also built. My toilet is based on the Tribolo toilet designs which are in Europe, but I built my own for less than NZ$100. I used a urine separator which came from Free Range Designs in the UK. I also have an extractor fan based on a small permanent magnet computer fan which removes all unpleasant odours.
