November 16th, 2008 Pickup Sqrd Update

Sean did quite a bit of work on his boat.  Then sent photos. hatchdetail2

Hatch detail-these won’t leak!


Corner detail. Sheet-rock screws will be removed and plugged or replaced with brass ones.


Bow hatch on.


Stern hatch on.


Both hatches on.

First try at leeboard pivot-not parallel with CL of boat.


Leeboard pivot  final.



Leeboard mounts.

Sean chose the simpler of two versions shown on plan.  Board will have same angle of flare as the side. Tiny bit less efficient, but loads simpler to make, maintain, and cartop.

Those hatches would serve a much larger craft!  Note these are not the version shown on the plan, but Sean has seen my WOOBO hatches leak some and wanted none of that for his boat. In point of fact, he will have to remake his rudder stock to clear the stern hatch with the tiller. Hard to visualize everything in advance….

Good work Sean!
