Re: My Gentry build

I've had to go on hold for a short time; my wife had to have emergency spinal surgery and that sort of blew my priorities and finances out of the water. Hoping to start real soon though. I've going to start with a row-me (intending to put an OB on it) which will be a tender for the Delta Q; the real...

Re: I've messed up real bad

Hi Keith, I heard this great saying a long time ago; "There is no such thing as mistakes, they are all only learning experiences and each perceived failure is simply a step towards final success."

Re: My Gentry build

Great work, Track. The outstanding paint work looked nice 'n' shiny as she rolled over. Love the maron clour on the bottom. Looking forward, as always, to seeing the upside progress as your great journey continues.

Graham.

P.S. Did you get my PM?

Re: New member, Cairns, Queensland, Australia.

I'll get this guys phone number to you within the next day or two. He can supply the timber for boat building and is even thinking of building a boat himself, so good contact. Can't give it to you right now because I'm not where it is. Be in touch soon.

High biminis become almost useless except during the couple of mid-day hours. But there is another two points; lower biminis also look much sleeke...

Re: Hi - It is Michael from California

This hang up on gamers must be because you are all only building 'virtual' boats; the rest of us are building real ones. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Welcome, Mike, to the forum of boat building, bad jokes and great fellowship.
