Thank you for your blog. Each one I read gives me more insight into construction details and methods.

Hi there, Thanks so much for the blog postings! Good stuff!! I have a question concerning the bow of your boat. The plans (for the F-39 at least) show a Stainless steel attachment part protruding out of the lower section of the bow that will be used to secure the end of the bow pole. I've noticed that both you and Henny (www.fram.nl) have moved that attachment point aft. What type of hardware will you be using to provide a mounting point, or will you simply be passing a line through that hole and making the attachment? I did consider it would be as simple as that, but I'm thinking that chaff might be a problem? Perhaps not. Please advise and Thanks for the blog posting.

FYI - My boat build won't be starting for a couple years. Still doing all the research and picking up a few parts here and there.

Best Regards,

Hi, I was interested in your router table, Can you help me with any design information. I am planning to build an F32 ( I have built an F33 before).

By the way a very interesting and well presented site, Thank you.

Hello Chuck.

For the rudder, using molds makes it necessary to work with halves. For the D/B I thought by working with halves it would be easier to keep the board straight, no warping.

Did you do the foils in 2 halves because of the depth of your router abilities or for some other reason? Ian seem to do the foils in one piece....at least laminate wise. I seem to remember a video from Andrew doing his board foil in one piece.

My CNC machine is of my own design and has a 210 x 110 cm cutting range. My own design capabilities are restricted to semi 3D or 2˝D, but the machine is 3D capable.
Cost of building the machine was about 3000 dollar, although I should invest a bit more and get a dust extractor. There is a lot of information about building your own CNC router on cnczone.com
A very popular design is the Mechmate
A building report of the mechmate: Dix 470 blogspot
I control my router via USBCNC , works great
I transfer my DXF files to NC with: USBCNC

Licensee of F85SR #9. Build not yet started, but I am interested in your response to Jak regarding your CNC as I wish to do something similar.

I'm interested in information on details of your CNC. Found you through Fram's blog. Is it home built, a kit or purchased whole? Does it do 3d or just 2d. Do you mind if I ask what it costs? If you would rather anser in Nederlands, my wife can read it to me.

It will be a great boat.
When i made my F22 (in multihull worl this month) the buyer off epoxy told me not to mix products (wee dont know how the PU will go), so i didnt glue parts this pu while planking, but with epoy and woodfill 130(sicomin). It's easy to do when you have finished to plank all parts, leting about 2mm between panels, you can glue in one time all the half float (dont forget to put tape on the wood under the joinings) yoy can see there: http://www.multicoquespassion.fr/construction.html#essaistrat
