Re: EPOXY STRENGTH TEST- ON YOU TUBE

I have had ZERO issues with white oak. No warping, splits, checking, or bonding issues. Maybe it is limited to certain species of oak. Of which there are a great many.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

And the Barrelback hull is 875. Should be a good performance jump from the Supra.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

At the Gathering, Butch Barto talked me out of using polycarbonate or acrylic. He talked me into using tempered glass instead.
