Hi:

We are going to add a twist grip to US 1112 this winter. I was wondering what you did to make yours "flawlessly executed twist tiller adjustment".

Shu:

I woke up at 3am and remembered seeing stacks of Thistle hulls on a truck going to somewhere where there was an oven. (US Plywood, maybe in Michagian) This was a long time ago. I think, later Douglass & McLeod used Resorcinol glue which eliminated the baking.

My father built about 1500 Thistles cold molded. He shot the staples through an inner tube then pulled the inner tube off with the staples.

Re: Boat in a box - the Shu3

You have carried the chine high and all the way forward v Shu2. Waterlines forward seem more blunt than on Shu2, looks like there is a little higher PC forward of the beam too?

Re: Boat in a box - the Shu3

I don't see any limber holes. Are you putting them in later? ( I assume the notches are for the stringers)

Re: East Coast Regattas

Hi:

Just an up date. Oakcliff is planning on skiff clinics next summer in Oyster Bay with Olympic level coaches. They are in the planning stages right now. I will keep you posted. If I had some interest I would approach them to see if they would add 14s to the FX & 49er days.
