    Default Michael Storer WoodenBoat Plans Forum - WELCOME

    Howdy All!

    (Click here for an Index to my forum)
    (Click here for general advice on boatbuilding materials and methods)

    Well, I asked Neil whether it would be possible ... and Yes! This will be the world wide forum for discussions about my boat plans, how to build them, events and trouble shooting.



    Like I say on my website ...
    http://www.storerboatplans.com
    ... my purpose has always been to get people excited about building, using, or just learning about wooden boats - whoever they are designed by, built by etc
    • Questions to do with a Storer Boat Plan put the Boat Design first in the name.

    eg BETH Centreboard - fibreglassing problem
    • Where they relate to a particular building method give the name of the part first

    eg Mast - making it round or
    Rudder blades - timber choice

    But don't worry about it too much - I can edit the name later!

    One of the great things is I will be able to move some of the existing threads that deal specifically with my plans into this area. And it also allows different threads to cover different aspects of the same boats, or different building projects of the same design. Ipso Facto - better visual organisation for easier reference!

    My plan is to keep this section pretty specific, so that the normal business of the other wooden boat sub-forums can continue unabated and unabashed!

    Any existing storerboat threads can continue at the moment and I will gradually move the most relevant ones into this section.

    ALSO .... consider joining this forum - it is free and being a member means that you can see easily what new posts have happened since your last visit so you can catch up quick.

    Best wishes to all
    Michael.

    Well let me be the second to congratulate you then Mik! ( and great decision on your behalf too Neil!)

    Does that mean the rowboat goes here?

    You look like having the record for the world's longest running single thread in the Eureka one anyway. See how I happily slip it over to the master?

    There's a pic of you back in the original post as I recall, just before you started giving me those looks!

    Yes Robert!

    Any questions about Storer Boats or discussions that come out of what I write or the building methods I tend to use in my plans.

    For example If you have a question about BETH (which I know you are interested in) ... just "start a new topic" and call it something useful - like "Beth - questions before I buy the plans".

    And then the discussion can start!

    Michael

    The Pocket Guide to Dinghy Sailing by Malcolm McKeag.

    My only complain so far is that it only has a 2 page glossary & it is CHOKERS full of boat & sailing jargon.

    Part 2 on Dinghy Racing is just about totally incomprehensible because of all the jargon, particularly the bits about The Start & The Rules.

    Before starting you may luff as you please (40) except that you may not go above close hauled if the windward yacht is forward of mast abeam. If your luff affects more than one other (often the case before starting) you may not go above close hauled unless all are aft of mast abeam (40 and 38.6).
    If any of the yachts to windward hail 'mast abeam', you must respect the hail even if you disagree and protest if you think fit (38.4) Since there is no proper course before starting, you only have to bear away on to a close hauled course (40) to fulfill your obligations.
    Yeap, got that.... what was the question again?

    Don't worry Cliff, the rules get updated every 4 years - so the book is so out of date you will still be in the wrong on the start line.

    What year was it published?

    Just checked ... it was 1985 so it is almost 6 sets of updates out! They did decide to move to a simplified rule set with fewer exceptions to standard situations about 12 years ago.

    Cheers Ding!

    More than a little spoilt! It was terribly good of Neil!

    Actually even more spoilt because a lot of my contribution has been spurred by the contribution of others. The obvious one is the Biting Midge and Daddles and yourself and woodbutcher and aloneonbeach and walesy and Cliff and catsailor and all the people involved in the PDRacer mayhem and and, but I'd be up all night listing all the people who have built up the wooden boat section. In fact as you know in particular I am quite a recent arrival compared to some!

    Now I have to work out how to use my magic powers to move things around without stuffing anything up!

    (if I dare) I'll do some reading first then move the Eureka, GIS and PDR threads under this one. Assuming I can do it without messing up existing links!

    Sigh

    Howdy All,

    I have just spent the last couple of hours moving any STRONGLY storerboat threads into this sub-forum.

    If there are any others that you think should be here - or any that you think should not be because they are too general please give me a yell and I will have a look at it.

    One person whose posts I miss are Dopeydriver (Rob, where are you) whenever he asked a question you never knew where it would lead, but it usually led somewhere quite generally useful.

    Best wishes to all
    Michael
