Hi,George!
You wrote: "...She could be rigged as a cutter (no mizzen at the stern) – there would have to be some changes to the main boom and gaff to move the centre of effort of the mainsail aft a little to compensate for there lack of mizzen. That would not be a problem at all....The change to gaff cutter I could do for free..."
What is necessary to make design changes? Possible detail? We are talking about Design 119.
Thank you.
Best regards

Hi

I am working on a new cutter-rig sail plan for No. 119.

The changes don't look to be much.

The main boom gets longer; I'm not sure yet if the gaff will need to be a little bit longer as well. Other than that there are no changes.

No changes to the structure of the boat – except no mizzen step and no bumpkin housing etc.

Total sail area will probably be slightly less and the centre of effort of the sail plan slightly higher. None of this will make any substantial difference to the sailing characteristics.

I will post the cutter rig sail plan and the new boom (and gaff if necessary) on the site as soon as I can.

But you don't need to make any changes to the construction of the boat herself.

Thank you, George.
I plan to start construction in the winter of 2013.
How to publish a photo of construction on the forum?

Thank you.
Best regards

Well enjoy building the boat. That is important! It will be hard at times. And sometimes you will wonder why you ever started!

When I originally had a forum there was so much spam on it that it was not really useful for people genuinely interested in building a boat. So I made my own forum and it doesn't take images, or any HTML, at the moment. I can make it so that BBCode is allowed and this can allow images.

However, I could also make you a web page on the site, separate from the forum, where you (and only you) could publish photos as you proceed with the build. I have been thinking about doing this for a while.

I reckon that might be a better solution? What do you think?

Hi, George.
No problem. I make a process of building single site. I know how it is. Website address will publish here. OK?
If you are interested in how it will look, you can see http://dinghy45.at.ua
It's a boat that I build now.
Best regards, Ruslan.

Hi Ruslan

I read your site (through google translate) – that looks a really nice dinghy you have built.

I look forward to seeing 119 there!

I will make a place on whisstock.com where builders can post their photos and comments etc. Maybe in a few weeks time ....

Best - George

The new cutter rig sail plan is on the website. And a new plan for the slightly longer main boom.

The plans are:

119/011/010 Cutter Rig Sail Plan
119/011/011 Cutter Rig Main Boom

Note that the Aft Sampson Posts and Chocks move 50mm further aft - their position is shown on the new sail plan.

No other changes – apart from no mizzen, bumpkin etc!

Oh – sorry about that. I'll look into it and correct it. May just be a mis-labelling (right plan – wrong title label)

Cheers -- George

It's the correct plan – just the title box is incorrect. I'll fix that.

Sorry for the confusion.

Cheers -- George

Hi,George!
Thank you!
I decided to start the construction of a fabrication screw clamps for forming frames, by my count they need a minimum of 40 pieces.
Thanks again
