Re: G-13 Dates/Hales Bar cabin booking instructions

Whether I make the Gathering or not, I'm ordering a T-Shirt.

Re: 2018 Report

Butch and Paula Barto, and Jeff and Melanie Cobb will probably be there.
SpeedRacer (Chris Beauvais) will also be there with his newly finished Monaco.

Re: Indiana Pee Wee

Good luck with your build. You'll find all the help and support you need here on the forum. BTW, how old are your boys?

I expect that the helicopter was checking out your nice boat! :)

Re: Tahoe 23 Georgia build

Sounds like it's time for you to build another boat, Brad.

What happened to you at the Gathering this year; I was really looking forward to meeting you and seeing your boat. BTW, there seemed to be quite a few aspiring Tahoe builders there.

Jambalaya Recipe

I was going to post this in "Gathering Recipes" section, but it is locked. A few people at the Gathering requested my Jambalaya recipe. Jambalaya is a heavily seasoned rice and meat dish very common in South Louisiana. So common in fact that if traveling through South Louisiana, you’ll probably see ...

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...

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.

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...
