Another Sharpy Part 2
As good as his word, Mr Anonymous sent me two more photos of his Sharpy. They provide extra information regarding the nature of the floats which I believe were designed by him. They are made of plywood joined at the chines by GRP tape. Altogether, along with the support beam they weigh between 15 and 20 lbs, which is considerably lighter than the 80 lbs keel. The boat will be sailed with a plywood centreboard instead of a keel. I am hoping all will go well and that the new configuration will be a great success.
Text for the Day
James 5:12 ‘But above all, my brethren, do not swear, either by heaven or by earth or with any other oath. But let your “Yes” be “Yes,” and your “No,” “No,” lest you fall into judgment.’
