Sweep oar

Building an 18 ft San Francisco Pelican cruising sailboat.

Planning a sweep oar.

It'll be 12-14 ft long, hard to stow, so I will make it a 2 piece oar.

How to make a strong, easy to operate join?

Ideas, plans, pictures?

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
