Re: Pondering a quick and dirty Squirt build

You build nice looking boats very quickly. Your houseboat is about as nice a houseboat as I've seen. I'd be interested in seeing what the inside looks like. I can't tell from your picture, but does your doodle-bug have sponsons or extensions out past the transom on each side? I have an old set of pl...

Re: 2018 Report

They went to Gatlinburg then thru Nashville. Then to the Space and Rocket Museum in Huntsville. They are here for, I think 3 weeks. I think Key West may be in the plans some place! Wow, they're not spending much time in one place. They might enjoy an American Football game. They'd probably enjoy Di...

Re: 2018 Report

Excellent! I thought they were off to Nashville after the Gathering. What else is on their agenda?

Re: Wood Boat Porn (work appropriate)

No real opinions or suggestions as it sounds like you're quite a bit ahead of most in understanding these designs and weighing the pros and cons of each. I'm definitely interested in seeing what you come up with. Here's a link to a build book I put together to display at ACBS events that covers some...

Re: 2018 Report

Man, what awesome weather you all had.

Not quite awesome, it was hot enough to fry an egg on the dock, or the top of my bald head, your choice.

Re: 2018 Report

Here's my rough cut video - https://youtu.be/x7IeLbltu4o I enjoy working with Windows MovieMaker and wouldn't mind doing a much better video of the Gathering, but I need more and better photos and footage. I set up a dropbox folder where you can upload any photos and videos you wish to share. The li...

Re: Wood Boat Porn (work appropriate)

If you're good with using CAD, I don't think any of these boats are out of reach. I think all could be emulated with modified Glen-L plans. While my boatbuilding skills and design will never approach VanDam, my boat does have some similarities to the third boat, and I'll happily sell it to you for a...

Re: Weather Forecast

Boatbuilders by nature are positive, hardworking, and resourceful; if they weren't, they wouldn't be able to build a boat. Weather, good or bad, this is going to be a fantastic gathering. Can't wait to see everyone. We've just arrived in the North Georgia mountains to spend some time here before com...

Re: Tahoe vs. Monte w/ a little Aquarama

Both the Monte Carlo and Tahoe are beautiful, but I don't think neither have enough freeboard to provide height over the engine for the sunken upholstered engine hatch like the Riva. I'd look toward the Key West - https://www.boatdesigns.com/23-Key-West-center-console-sport-fisherman/products/226/ ....

Re: G-12 Gathering 2018 Dates and Location

You might consider this - https://www.vrbo.com/1364148 It's only about a mile and a half away. I was trying to talk my wife into taking this and giving you our Land Cabin, but no dice.

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Great job JT! :D I think many of us have been here on the finish sanding process. Although it's hard to say without actually being there and seeing the surface up close, I'm going to disagree with your assessment that you should have started with 800 and sanded more. My theory is that you start with...

Re: G-12 "Friday Lunch Run To Chattanooga"

Neel, Our boat rides 6 very comfortably and can ride up to 8 if necessary. So, please update us to room for 4.
