This blog will take you along the different steps of building a 23 foot dropkeel sailboat. The DIDI 23 is one of the available designs for the amateur builder designed by Dudley Dix. The boat is built as a radius chine trailer sailer from plywood with bulb dropkeel.
I am 59, married, have two adult children and working as engineer for rf techniques at a physical research centre of the Helmholtz Association. I live close to the Elbe river in a suburb of Hamburg, Germany.

Rudder Stock, Copper(I)Oxide Coating
Icoated the inner surface of the rudder stock with Cu2O. After curing,I found thisstrangecraterin some places.
I had alreadydiscovereda similar structure on the PU coatingwhen I painted the rudder blade with a paint roller. What is the cause? A repelling pollution of the ground? Air bubbles dumped by the paint roller? For the nextcoatI willuse a differentpaint roller. Maybe it will help.
