"Chris Wow. You are cracking on.  I like the boom tent. The raised legs for the horse and the lifting gooseneck make a lot of difference to the headroom under the cover.  Nice job.   And it would have been great if you could have split…"

A169 Kerry Piper - cockpit tent + mast and boom issues

Missed the bulletin deadline this year, so thought I would add this blog of the ongoing work on Kerry Piper A169.Working on the basis of KP launch in 2018, need to schedule the various jobs still outstanding. First off, as there are various onboard mini projects to complete, a cockpit tent would add some comfort over the winter. A quantity of heavy-duty waxed canvass from previous boat projects was available, so decided to incorporate  a set of dodgers (to be more or less permanently in place)…See More

A169 Kerry Piper - out of the shed!

Last week (of August), after several postponements due to inclement weather, KP's scaffold shed was dismantled. The scaffolding has been reconfigured to provide a higher lift on the winched slings ready for the undersides epoxy / cloth sheathing. One of the benefits of the Rye boatyard is that a houseboat resident here is an expert in the process of the epoxy cloth laying-up. The mast rebuild is still pending - in the photo sequence  the mast is under cover along…

Here are a few pictures of Kerry Piper. The ones with the dark hull were taken in 1987 when I found her in Mechelen (Belgium) bringing her home to Antwerp for restoration. The pictures with the white hull were taken in 1990 after all the work. This is Antwerp harbour. Kerrypiper%201987%20-%201990.pdf

Chris, Uploading photos is really easy, and if need be I'll gladly tackle that for you. However, am I right in thinking that Sailing Today have copyright on those photos? If so, we must ask their permission to put them on the website. Even though we're not getting any commercial benefit - others might!

Hi Chris, Welcome aboard! Do you have a portrait of yourself that you can upload to your Profile on the new site? It would be great to replace some of those sinister hooded figures in the Members section! I hope to know more about A31 soon.

Best wishes, John
