Re: Classic Boating

There are a few clubs and people who'll still poo-poo on newly built boats, but fortunately, there are more who recognize a beautifully crafted wooden boat doesn't have to have the CC or Hackercraft label on it. You did a fantastic job on your build and I look forward to seeing your Pee-Wee and othe...

Re: Michigan Squirt Build

Yes, I would think so. Other than the carbon buildup shown in the pictures, are there any other issues with the engine. Is that your 18HP that you've had on your Squirt? BTW, seafoam additive to your fuel does a pretty good job of cleaning up carbon if the engine was running. Not sure how good it wo...

Re: Monaco Restart

Chris, I just sent you an email with Walter's info. Actually, I sent three with the first two emails being incorrect for Walter. Just give him a call, he said with some luck you may be able to get the continental frames for a couple of thousand. But my question is this. Are you sure that they'll wor...

Re: Monaco Restart

Chris, The owner of that boat is a guy named Walter Leggett who lives here in Baton Rouge. I'm friends with Walter and can give you his number and email if you'd like to talk with him. By the way, unlike many of the boats at Madisonville, Walter actually restored this boat himself and is a wealth of...

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

The good news is that it really shouldn't affect any of your boat progress since Lauren does all the actual work on the boats.

Still, I'm sorry to hear of your pain. Get well soon.

Re: No limit to the jet squirt!

Congrats on the build and look forward to the pictures, or even better, videos.

By the way, "to each his own", but if I had a Squirt that would do 60, the only way I'd run her that fast would be via remote control from the dock. :D

Re: what's that speckle paint ?

I don't know what video you're referencing so don't know what you're looking at, but are you sure it was paint. I used a product called Seadek on my swim platform. They sell it in several colors including speckled (camoflage) patterns. Here's a link - http://www.seadek.com/t-colors-landing.aspx

Re: Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival

I must admit, I didn't take many pictures. I was guess I was too busy giving people rides. This is Great. But, I wonder what the Judges would do if all of our award winners showed up at one show? I think sensory overload! A few things about the Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival. Because it's not an ...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Wait one damned minute :evil: You mean you sat around and exchanged pleasantries with a poker face for 4 days at the Gathering and didn't let on to any of this? Great looking boat and no, you're not nuts. Anyone who builds boats as nice as your Gentry should be required by law to build at least one ...

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Water WILL get in your boat, and sponges will NEVER get it all. This is part of building a boat gang. Have the confidence to do it, and develop the competence to do it right. This past weekend, I had my boat in the water for the local Madisonville Wooden Boat Festival. We had several intermittent h...
