Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Darn sailors aye.

Crouching from face of elements.
Tiger translates as dare using Chinese flow.

Now man,men are covered, sail.

Hidden, leeward cloth flow
Dragon, windward cloth flow when learning to point at truth.

Eg.. umm anyone point out point and press? Like a Volvo. Volvo make ocean racers nowadays. Sloops will point and working strength means entertainment, learning. If strength of elements to much they'll heel whereas with squares standing proud, they will sheer point during brace rather than like a sloop will sheer strength when power on. Most perfer to sheer strength because we can always reduce sail and plot along.

Just a smiling bloke.

Are you using some kind of computer program to generate gibberish? Sort of looks like it.

Re: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

The same thing happened to my manatee crew when they bought some brownies from a Jamaican fishing boat.

LoL

Computer programming? That makes me laugh. Had a grant to write for government research institute at beginning of millennium but got booted because I obeyed written law rather than guards opinion of where I should sit.
Hopeless with computers though..

Simply tripping on overwhelming happiness.
Budget low but if similar sailor interested he's she's welcome to my homework and build of his her vessel.

I have a 45 foot marina berth rented by another.
Interstate is an older design hull, masts and engine to give away. Never launched, no hull holes.

I don't know how rough you've seen outside but been out before when through hole started whale blowing shooting cabin ceiling. Priority job. Plug blow hole LoL.
She hasn't any holes.

Modern boaters often prefer to heavy brace rudder via deck. Leverage to strengthen rudder. I'd rather a full keel that braces rudder below waterline. Let her sail herself. This one has skeg. No complaints. That'll strengthen leading edge and an inbetween of hull bracing, deck bracing rudder system.

She no deck but ketch masts. Should be able to swap them for 3 masts and mount with halyards.

Cost if anyone else wants project before I can afford.
$14000 delivered to boat yard. Transportation and crane costing.
$1000 per month. 24 hr access working yard.

Some like (probably most) sloop, ketch, etc because the feel of strength and enjoy ability to sail.
Some like square because of feel of point with full size working throats to deliver pure grunt. Suit something heavy.
Eg horsepower like comparing motorcycle to truck of same horsepower.

I'm liking idea of Junk. I'm ignorant yet guessing could probably add throat eyes and brace horsepower into the breeze. Eg when crewed, giddy up.
Or probably just chill out like normal, short throat from halyard would have halyard bracing enough eye stability to simply enjoy a more controllable tack via a bit of grunt. More importantly, reefed or raised with one hand.

To me that looks ideal yet a bit costly because 12 months on hard would equate to 2 days a week work, holiday weeks, $24000 + materials to install rudder shaft, pilot wheels, hull , bulkheads, tanks, deck, masts, prop shaft, batteries and engine.
Safety gear to get from slip to marina can borrow from a mates boat for a day.
Sails easy.. find something pretty and sew battens to UV retardant cloth.
Thus. Although I study my best to avoid storm, if caught out dancing with whales, she won't be able to show how much she admires there beasts and show her crew Watt sailboats do to look like whales. LoL.

Easy going too. Someone went through alot of effort and last year or so she's been on market at $1.
Is expensive yet.. how well do others know their vessels?
I gotta talk to a wright first but figuring ballast tanks as secondary skins. Punctured? Less flow plane on ballast full. Better than a blow hole. Better than a reef. Not 100% if good idea due to service intervals but a secure locking sizeable threaded port above each tank would enable cleaning, inspection and forget about weight low for another year.

I simply can't imagine bracing a square throat. Rolling the dice, we point with knots or we reduce.

Re: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Crouching Tiger.
Hidden Dragon.

Certainly explains sailing.
On calm everyone wanting helm, nice and peaceful.
In weather everyone offering everyone else helm because crouching dare receives weather.

And always looking up. Sitting on windward. Hidden flow good flow.
Drag on windward to shock absorb gusts. Or flat out racing and hope sail systems aren't over stressed.

Here's a pic of her aft plane. But aye. Beggars can't be choosers. Faster whilst calmer. Heavier on deck brace when rough.
Just saying. Plenty here always looking for boats. Probably same as me, like, like, not so much, like, know thank you, until ... Match, married, underway.
Ain't my boat. On my like list. Pros and cons. Cost a bit more to get underway. Be able to repair if understanding how built. Etc..
Cost can be spread from basically a large underway dinghy for a year or so until housing equipment in braced locations in hull and suitable to dropping from heights.



Always a good day if you get back.
Better day if nothing is broken.

I'm thinking it involves the demise of West End and someone's last big night out.

Cheers. I like it.
Just needs more umph.

My head to focused at moment. I'll need to stare. Guessing rambling because ball like hence probably loose on forced float.

Can't find sail area for spinnaker of Roberts 43.
Found missen, main, Genoa about 750 sq ft.
Guessing add 500 sq ft.
Electric engine blew me away with Battery bank. Old uncle used to brew his cars diesel, will look into combustion of vegetables and such. Radiator removes boat hull need. Exhaust can vent via drain.
Calculations on 1300 sq ft Junk will do. Aslong as above deck not to heavy, just reef early.
But spinnaker like breathing into beat.

Rambling on. Yes.
Doubtful. Yes.
Just one plan. Yes.

Easy too. Just thinking. That combo would work. Maybe even just match the white sails at 800 sq ft. Maybe wouldn't work neither well due to high heel?
I'm done. Call later for afew weeks. Blooming homework.

Fair winds to you sir.

Re: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

CruiseN,
I for one enjoy your posts. Which Adelaide is yours? I hope our tracks cross some day.
Ketch vs sloop vs junk: in the end the heart wants what the heart wants. In a full mooring field, my eyes linger on the ketches, though my mind tells me I should be shopping for a sloop for my next boat.

I'm enjoying the times I understand where your going. I know you have much to say, so I'll keep reading and try and grok more of what you speak.
Thx for being engaging and entertaining!
