A Visit From a Fellow Blogger and Sailing Barge Builder

It was a delight to have Dennis Donohue come by and visit us aboard Autarkia today!  Dennis is building a Triloboat and has been blogging it here:  http://dennisdonohue.blogspot.ca/

Nice guy and definitely a kindred spirit!  So good to make a new friend...

  1. I'm so glad! I propose that once everybody's boat is done and rigged and everything we have a regular GAM with at least the three of us and Dave and Anke. Wouldn't that be so friggin' NEAT??? Geography is totally against us, though. Hmmm..

  2. I like the get-together idea. And Dennis looks perfectly at home on your boat!

  4. It was a great visit and Alan was a wonderful host. I definitely recommend visiting fellow builders, just to see how they did things and how little problems are solved. Brainstorming works so much better when you don't have to explain the basics too.

    1. Thanks Dennis for those kind words! You are welcome here any time. You have some good ideas and I never would have thought of venting the head and forward hold with the same fan :-) Doing that mod for sure...

  5. Could you do me a favour and measure the outside dimensions of your fridge? I am getting 3 different sizes between Costco's site, the brochure and the owners manual (all on line)

    1. Just got back from out of town. I'll go down to the boat tomorrow and measure it for you...

    2. With the door closed it stands 25-1/2 inches high, 25-1/2 inches wide and 19 inches deep. To accommodate the door in the open position you need 23 inches in depth and 41-1/2 inches in height...

    3. Thanks, those numbers are all slightly different from any of the web sites! I think I will go with yours. I am waffling between my bar fridge conversion and the one you have, so I will make sure that your style will fit if I go with the bar fridge now.
