Removing some square footage from the leech of a regular sized Sunfish sail. In the original photo above I'm setting up to make a curving pencil mark along the slightly bent PVC tubing before hot knifing through the sail. Making a curved cut where the new leech is going to be allows the leech to be tight and with no fluttering even though you don't have any battens.What are you working on here Andy?
The train table was built by my Dad over the last twenty years. He started it in Florida and slowly moved it up to Wisconsin. It was his plan to spend half the year up there but he had a business to run and he was never able to work from Wisconsin. As an "N" scale modeler myself, I had wanted to work on it with him but we ran out of time. If I ever am able to spend a lot of time there, I may reduce the size and finish it at some point.what did you do to that poor train table?
Nice colors!Just finished repainting the desk on my '85 Sunfish and took it out on it's maiden voyage yesterday. I almost slid off while tacking. Hopefully, I can finish the hull over the winter.
Thank you,gzblack2 Good job! Is that a Widgeon?
Norcalsail what did you do to that poor train table?
Thanks! I really liked the color scheme LP used in 2016 so I recreated it on mine. My son thinks it's the same as a Shelby Cobra which when I looked online I guess it is. As far as the booms/sail/mast, I'm still tying them to my roof rack. I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket in case something goes wrong.Nice colors!
I especially like the idea of running the tie down straps through a pool noodle. That should give a snug-but-not-too-snug ride with the side benefit of giving your booms/sail/mast a place to rest comfortably while traveling.
