Re: What? Hagerty doesn't insure plywood boats?

We have our cars, home, boat and other valuables and an umbrella policy with them. Good company.

Re: New Member Maryland

Yup! Use the one as a template and custom cut yours to suite. Post lots of pictures of the new kit. Looks great.

Re: New Member Maryland

Glad to see you getting started. Did you purchase the new complete kit from Glen L? If so, you can add some extra space by gluing more wood to the bottom and covering the joint with some thinner veneer. Or simply remake the dashboard to your liking.

Re: Building the PeeWee in Germany

You may need to design the skeg yourself. I would look at other PeeWee's out there or poll other builders as to what they did. There might be a suggestion in the build instructions as to the location and rough size. Sometimes the outboard motor manual has suggestions to avoid turbulence. It does app...

Re: Changes

I first heard of this in this thread. I think the Zip has become a very popular boat and the kit should surely boost interest and more being built. Good choice for a complete kit, wood wise. Supplemented with the fastening and epoxy kits it will make a nice project. I know I would have been interest...

Re: Changes

Gayle would be able to advise on the depth they are using on the new Zip kit. I would think the depth of the grooves would be minimal, like 1/16" .

I looked at the photos of the new kit. It looks really nice.

Re: Count Down

With the river run, the cabins on the dock, fairly central location for many east of the Mississippi (sorry west coasters), the patio dock that was recently added, a restaurant on site, the marina, and really great Interstate highway access, Hales Bar is a really nice location. We don't need to make...
