  1. So I couldn't wait for the new kit to come in picked up a piece of basswood and made a new side. My question is is basswood as strong as teak? At least I think it's teak.
  2. Marty here's the 2021 catalog PDF. I'm a very beginner at this but this forum has been very helpful. f2135ec59d2fa86b3ac514548b0da22dcc201a9a.pdf
  3. Another good one is Acorn to Arabella I've binge watched both series when I was out for Corona furlough.
  4. Hit my first whoops Glued the transom in upside down. Finishing it that way would have made it a submarine. The yellow clamp in the picture ended up on the bottom instead of the top. Instead of looking at the angle of the front of the side piece I was trying to put the straight edge on the bottom. Was able to remove the transom and flip it.

  5. Thank you VT It should hold then I let it dry for an hour before pulling the clamps.
  6. First gluing. Still not sure how long it's needed for the Elmer's Wood glue to dry before unclamping?
  7. Got the beginner boat in, Inventoried and setting up builders log (Sailboat by CRob-Dumas#1007- small)
  8. Leo does an excellent job explaining sails and rigging for small boats in episode 90 of Tally-ho. I really enjoyed his explanation. The Rig & Sailplan (Rebuilding Tally Ho / EP90)
  9. Kit just came in first step inventory everything is there. Reboxed and put away for now.
  10. I'm looking at starting with Dumas 1007 Junior sailboat just to get familiar with gluing and positioning things.
  11. ERS Rich A little off topic but have you heard of Acorn to Arabella boat build?
