Re: Building The Vera Cruise

the closest thing to the pain of childbirth that a guy can can experience

Some women love to brag that childbirth is the most physically painful experience that a human must endure. To that, I say, "Well maybe, but none of them have ever been kicked in the nuts." :lol:

Re: Agenda

Hmmm. You do know that LSU and Auburn are playing each other on Sept 15th. I'm going to go ahead and make an early prediction that Auburn wins, but only because we get screwed by the officiating. :lol: BTW, Aubie is squirmy looking little shit that looks like he needs a worming. This is what a real ...

Re: Agenda

MUCH more "can I ride in your boat?" going on Actually, there's probably more, "Hey, do you want to go for a ride in my boat" going on. Don't worry, you won't get left at the dock. As for the folding chairs, if anyone else has any like I do with the LSU logo on them, please brin...

Re: Agenda

Here it is in a nutshell. Lots of people hanging out with their boats that they built that will gladly give you a ride, answer any questions you might have about their build; and provide opinions, advice, and guidance on any boat you're thinking about building. Oh, and there's also lots of food, bee...

Re: Monaco Restart

just noticed your Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival application. Of course, your application is accepted. Looking forward to seeing you and your boat at the show.

By the way, we're working on a ACBS cruise in Lake Charles for in late August. Maybe you can make it out.

Re: Mini Adventure

Yes, I sold it way back in 2010. I don't regret selling it as the amount of toys I can keep are limited, but still, I miss it. I hope someone at the Gathering this year brings a Squirt, I'd love to take a ride again. How about you, BillW, or Jimmy? Will either of ya'll be coming?

Re: Mini Adventure

Thanks for posting Jimmy. The pictures over the bow of your boat reminded me so much of sitting and looking out over the bow of my old Squirt. So much so, that I could feel the ride, seeing the water ahead and remembering exactly how it would feel as I went through, and hearing the distinct sound th...

Re: Monaco Restart

It's flat beautiful, Chris, but you've got to quit teasing us. Every time I see a post by you I anxiously click thinking I'll see launch and sea trial videos. Really looking forward to seeing it and you in the water. By the way, here's the link for the Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival - https://woo...

Re: Orange Peel due to CPES

I've never spread epoxy that didn't have orange peel; I'm not sure if you can. You need to cover the epoxy with a finish paint to get a smooth finish and UV protection. You'll sand down the epoxy smooth before applying the finish in accordance with the particular finish instructions (usually 220 gri...

Re: Celerity Build

Minimizing the amount clear finished wood will save you loads of time because you can just use sheet plywood and product like Quikfair and paint over it. Adding some natural clear finished mahogany trim pieces which will nicely enhance the paint and subtly let everyone know she's a woody. I'm in the...

Fantastic Job. The sanding will pay off; there's nothing prettier than a fair wooden boat.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

I did all my plank spiling with a router. I know some folks don't like using a router and I'll admit I have a love/hate relationship with mine, but it worked out pretty well for the spiling task. If you're interested in using a router method instead of a bandsaw, I'll be glad to give you all the det...

Re: Lake Hopatcong (NJ) Wooden & Classic boat show 6/23

Thanks for letting me brag a little. I'm still sort of walking on clouds! I'm good with being vicariously happy with someone who's hard work and achievement is publicly recognized. Thanks for sharing. For most builders, building a boat takes a lot of lonely hours working away trying to perfect ever...
