This years houseboat trip

Got back from our annual houseboat trip a couple weeks ago. Went to lake Mead and had a great time. The first day was 115 degrees but it "cooled down" to the low 100s the rest of the time.The water was in the 80s. We setup over 20 miles from the marina and it was almost like we had the whole lake to...

Re: Wood Boat Porn (work appropriate)

A member of our ACBS chapter has three Van Dam boats in his collection at his winery in Clearlake. The Saturday dinner for the Wood and Glory show is usually held there.

Re: Boat Cover Question

My boat stays covered outside so it is hard on the covers. I used to use Stitch master covers and they would last about three years but they stopped making them. I tried others and they would not even last a year. This is the cover I am using now https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0041E9CJ6/ref=oh_a...

1st annual Runabouts on the River

( Mine and a Cracker Box built by the Sea Scouts) The show was free to the public and we had a good turnout. A few pictures IMG_0166.jpg Glen-L Cracker ...

Re: Varnishing Tips

Agree, Different approaches, all valid. I chose to use 1 part for my use. Less expensive easier to to apply and I planned to refinish every few years. My boat is no "Trailer Queen" I store it covered but outside in Modesto Ca, 100+ degrees common in the summer. We do take it to shows but once a year...

Re: Varnishing Tips

Does two part varnish not flow like regular varnish? Regular varnish when applied correctly even with a brush will flow out smooth with no sanding or buffing. The two part might be a tougher finish, but I can't see the advantage to all the extra work and turning all that expensive varnish into dust ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

If you used some 90 degree fittings on the thermostat housing would that work ?

Re: through-hull drains

On my Monaco, when it is level the lowest point is about where the drivers feet are. It would be hard to lift the front high enough to drain at the transom. I have a T- handled garboard plug like Jim posted. It is under the front cockpit floorboard on one side of the keel with a limber through the k...

Re: Riveria water line

On the plans the page that shows the lines should have that information. I think it is page 2. It shows the waterline and also gives the measurements from the setup level to the top of the bootstripe.
