Re: modified malahini

I used the strap kit because the moeller tank I got doesn't work with the hold down clamps. It worked out fine. They're easy to bend and have a thick plasticky coating on them.

Re: Aussie Belle

Cupholders are very important. They are high on my list to add to my boat

If you need cheap neoprene get a pack of those anti-fatigue floor mats. Easy to cut to size.

Re: Muskoka Mystery Boat/New member

It doesn't look like any of the Glen-l boats to me. I don't think any of his have that much crown in the deck. Post a picture of the shaft. I can't help you but someone will be able to. Cool looking boat!

Re: Building a La Paz 24

I don't think it's super critical with Sapele. The grain is highly interlocked so if you hand plane it the plane needs to be absolutely razor sharp to prevent tearout. The sapele I bought I stored for over a year (not climate controlled) before I used most of it. It stayed nice and flat. I didn't us...

Re: New member

I've been pondering building a "Husky" camper shell with fold-down bunks. I don't really have room to build or store it right now though. It would be nice to be able to hook up the boat and go camping somewhere without having to pitch a tent. A tiny window air conditioner would even be a possibility...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

There's nothing "wrong" with a good no-feedback cable steering system. I'm really happy with the SeaStar (teleflex) system on my boat. The way no-feedback works on a cable system is by locking out the steering loads when you are not actively moving the wheel. You feel the steering loads as you turn ...

Re: SLX 3 build

Isn't line-x super bumpy? I don't think I'd want that on my hull. It would probably be fantastic for a cockpit sole or decking.
