Progress - Posted: 14th Oct 2018
Can you define progress based on the size of the shavings pile?

inaccurate plans - Posted: 14th Oct 2018
Not happy to find that 2 of the frames are not the correct shape.
I've added a scan of the frames. There should be an even change of spacing of the frame profiles. I think in shipbuilding terms they call it 'fair'. You can see there is not an even transition at frames 12 and 52.

Maree III sharpie 10 Rater - Posted: 13th Oct 2018
Maree III is a 10 Rater Sharpie design by A Wilcock dating back to 1958. MM plan MM/504.
I first built her in 1996 but as with all these things family life got in the way or changed and I stopped taking her out. At some point I must have sold her but I can’t remember how or when.
A few weeks back I decided to build something again and found the original plans under the bench so where better to start than there. I also found the MM Plans catalogue which is how I found the first date (Plan ordered 06/08/1996 pencilled in the margin).
The original design does not have a bulb keel but I have decided mine will but not with the narrow carbon fin as used on the latest boat designs. She is also not for competition so I plan to include a cabin top for a more ‘scale’ appearance.
Must give my thanks early on for the help I have had from David Creed who researched some old plans to find me a suitable design for the bulb keel but with a quite broad fin. As a result I have now made a plug for the bulb and a box in which to make the silicone mould.
I have also cut out all the rib moulds so I can start laying up the hull. It is a monocoque design so these are just to build the hull shape. There will then only be a couple of ribs around the keel mount and mast step to add strength in those areas.
Been buying materials but it is not easy as the plans have very little info on the sails and rigging.
