Re: Tuffy Build

I had that issue with TotalBoat primer. I left it on for a week and it never dried. I was told that I put the second coat on too soon after the first coat and even though it had dried to the touch, it was uncured and would never cure. I had to take to it with paint stripper. Your boat is looking fan...

Re: Flying Saucer "Mustang Sally"

Interesting concept you have there of "mustanging" out this design. Excited to see what you come out with.

Re: Whitmore Lake Classic Boat Show

I'd like to come, but it's so far away. Maybe if I came you'd buy me two beers? :lol: :lol: Gayle better stock up on the Squirt plans because I expect after you ride by there will be a big rush on them. BTW, I've got a couple old Johnson's that I'm ready to begin restoring and have been doing a lot ...

Re: Ski-Tow...Peg is still turning heads!

The motor looks fantastic!!!

BTW, I have one. Seeing it on your boat may just be the motivation I need to restore it. Of course, then I'll have to build another boat to put it on.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

That is so beautiful, Tom. You've inspired me with ideas and so now I want to dedicate some time to learning how to use CAD. Do you have a suggestion on which program I should start out with?

Re: Rub-a-Dub-Scrub

The guy talks about how 'green' it is
He and his shop are in Seattle, and he's marketing this thing which has at most a $1,000 of materials in it for $30,000. He's got to talk about green to sucker in one of the rich liberals out there with more money than sense.

Re: Rub-a-Dub-Scrub

I wonder what that coating is that doesn't require maintenance? Looking at the plastic like gloss, I'm thinking it's automotive clearcoat and that's what I'd coat it with if I were to build it. Ken probably knows. Of course, nothing is maintenance free, but it's my understanding that this is a $30,...

Keels and Wheels 2019

We're bringing the boat to Keels and Wheels this year in Houston on May 4th and 5th. Any other Glen-L'ers going? Maybe we could all meetup for lunch, breakfast, or a beer while there.

Re: How Long Does a Plywood Boat Last Sitting in Salt Water?

After the pain of paying wears off, you don't want to stand over the clubs thinking I wish I had bought the Hogan's.
