Setting up for bagging foam core. Proper corner pleating.

Double butyl cover beats getting core bond on the butyl.

Ready to bag core, with the bag pre applied to the trickiest areas.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Good gauge reading. Yet another nice bag, despite lots of geometry.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Not much room, really tight layup in places. Came out nice though.

Forgot to show core after bagging and prep, but before new glass.

Schattauer Sails Inc.
We have had a couple of sails made by them in the past.
Great guys.

BTW, their weakness is homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies...

I had one of their sails on my Ingrid 38. Superior sail. I just laugh when people try to defend the sails they but built over-seas. I also like Hood sails. They have their own looms.

Try cookies delivered by wild six year old twin girls! They also really like anything Aage Nielsen related. After all, they named the dog Aage! Their boat makes me drool, it's a work of art. They have been our dock neighbors for years.

Yep, replacing Hood sails with a full suit of Schattauer. They are definitely unparalleled. Of course they ought to be at 10k a pop! But the big lofts will charge as much or more, and you don't get the same quality, or anywhere near it. Around here it's Hasse this, and Brion Toss that all the time. But Carol got her start working for Franz. I prefer Axel's work myself, he's a real old school craftsman in the finest tradition. And you know when you go to them that no one else will touch your sail, they have never had employees. No one else will guarantee that. When Axel built my Genny he wouldn't even let Frank touch it. I'll have to find my pics from the loft floor, beautiful stuff.

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

Since this is a Nauticat thread, here's a few pics of a customized Nauticat 38 we've been working on. Check out the hull extension with sugar scoop, only one I've ever seen done on a Nauticat.
