I like the water tight hatch leading to the chain locker in the forward collision bulkhead.* Very ship like...............Arctic Traveller

Maybe that hatch will keep out funky rode odors.

I didn't say that.
*I was just asking what a new boat smells like.

Mark said he wanted a rotten fish spray to maintain consistancy and appearance

Not sure what he ment by that.

RE: Coot is coming along

I've decided to have the steadying sails colored a red/brown, brick-like (boxcar oxide red)*color.* This is one of few decisions I've made without you guys' input.

Thanks to you guys!* I originally thought of "international orange."* Yuck!* Oh, the waterline stripe is yellow, and the boat's name and home port on the stern will be too.

Mark,
what a sturdy looking little ship! I agree- the yellow house top looks great. Problem is, with a color like that, I'd be tempted to add a little bit of black color to make it look like this for the viewing pleasure of any airplanes/helos above you:



But perhaps you are not so inclined to do this to the top of your cabin.

Woodsong, I'm not that imaginative!* Anyway, the bright yellow pilothouse roof is my attempt to make the vessel more*visibile, particularly by aircraft.

Has anyone noticed the light-tan/yellow forward-cabin roof top?* That's my attempt to reduce glare.* I'm curious how that will work out.

RE: Coot is coming along

Good stuff.
I have the same colour roof top on my wheelhouse.
It used to be a survey requirement in Aus that this top should be painted either International Orange or Signal Yellow.
Makes it easy for the chopper to spot us from above if we are really in the s..t.

Traditional coloured sails will look really good.

RE: Coot is coming along

My Coot's sails will look something like this*(shown on a small Diesel*Duck, a passage maker, notice the absence of large saloon windows) but a bit browner.

RE: Coot is coming along

steadying sails colored a red/brown,

Your eyeballs will thank you on every sunny day.

Tanbark sails also resist UV better , but a boom sail cover is still a must.

Full battens , instead of a cut roach will allow the main sail to not flog when powering very close to the wind.

Full battens are worth the extra cost as the sail area can be higher , up high where it counts.

Both sails have furlers and*roll up along their luffs.* No booms or battens.
