Re: Huck Finn Deck Position

I'm decreasing the beam by 2' and mounting them so the edges will be in the center of the pontoon. This configuration would resault in an overall width of 7'6". I understand by decreasing the beam I could possibly lose stability, which is why i'm considering mounting the deck on the centerline of th...

Huck Finn Deck Position

Im planning on building one with deck dimensions 10' x 6' instead of 12' x 8'. I understand that buy moving the pontoon closer and mounting the deck flush with the outer edges in width it makes it legal to tow on most roads and comply with DMV regulations. My question is: Are any advantages to mount...

Have you purchased the 1/8" yet? If so, where and what did you use? I can't find any at my local hardware/lumber stores, or the 'bi...

Re: New guy building modified cascade

Hey, project looks great so far. I'm in the process of redesigning and combining two of the plans (Importer and Acupulco) and I was curious which fastening process you are using to join the frame member pieces together?

Sytem Three plunger pump

This is my first boat build and I'm ready to order my supplies. I just have a quick question.... I'm ordering the Poxy-shield for my boat and wondered if you can use the System Three plunger with it. Is there any advantages of using it with the Poxy-shield? Do I actually need it? Kinda clueless here...
