Re: Bamboo Schooner

Here is another picture - I took quite a few but was struggling to resize for the upload on laptop. Used to using the iphone app and iphone as camera but now using a new camera so excuse the 'bits n pieces'

Re: Bamboo Schooner

Yeah, sorry I had to size the pics down - she really looked amazing out in the bay. This guy can be really proud of his workmanship - perhaps I will get to meet him one of these days.

Re: Bamboo Schooner

How about some details on the build method - most of us (me included) have never heard of building with Bamboo? I looked over the blog, but there is not much there except for photos.

Re: Bamboo Schooner

Very impressive. Curious, was she glassed over the bamboo, or just paint?

Re: Bamboo Schooner

I believe she was glassed over. You can find out for sure on the blog site, I'm at work and don't have the access.
