Topless Tubby er... the boat, that is

UPSPirate Oh yeah... that's what I mean. Thanks. I don't know how I missed it when going thru' the customer photos. So easy to get side tracked, or even derailed at times when you go off on a tangent looking at the neat applications out there. Will check his out and see if he's had it in the water y...

Topless Tubby Tug

Thanks for the reply. A little affirmation to an idea goes a long ways. I need to start with something small to hone my skills on the glass part of it. Will know more later then on if I wish to tackly a bigger project or just assume a commercially manufactured one. Good luck on your build, 5 weeks r...

Tubby Tug Mod

Hey there, I originally posted this under "Small Outboard" heading. Plenty of views but not too much in the way of comment. Perhaps I was under the wrong heading.. or just considered as jabbering. Maybe not getting to the right person? At any rate, here it is again then, slightly modified: I have a ...

Branson, MO. Tablerock Lake & Surrounding Areas

Are there any readers/members out there from the Tablerock Lake/Branson MO area? I would like to see some builds, and meeting others with the same interests. I'm especially concerned about the position the Missouri State Water Patrol, the DMV, and the Corp. of Engineers take on "homemade" boats. I'm...

Parallel vs Series

I don't wish to let that "can of worms" dri out before getting properly used. Verified that they are all Parallel circuits, the point hasn't yet surfaced that if wired in Series it would multiply the voltage, (6v, 12v, 18v, etc. ) and wired in parallel the voltage stays the same but with considerabl...

Tubby Tug "Variatas"

As a newbie, I'm trying to do all the research prior to the build that I can. A short story first, then the questions. I have a special need for a special boat. When we are RVing we tow the jeep behind for transportation. However, if we are going to another lake we tow the boat so we can get out on ...

Kens Ha ha Probably right, it would cut into the routine, me work, her rule. Will get the plans ordered soon, so she knows I am serious about this thing. We sold our long time friend yesterday, the family boat, so that puts us in dire need now. I would be starting off pretty small imho anyway, so wh...

upspirate Hey thanks, I kind of figured so, even tho' we haven't laid eyes on it yet. That's where we will be if we get down. I did see a boat builders get together last summer at Lake Dardenelle, AR. Not too many there but they sure drew a croud for about three days running. Very fun to see. I don'...

Wow! I really screwed that up somehow Kens. I'm sure (almost) that I hit reply, but it took it as a new post. Your answer then is the start of a new "Gathering" 2008 post Will get this thing yet. And I wish to build a boat??? :oops:

The Gathering

G-mornin Kens, You hit the nail right 0n the head. The question of the day. I would start building today if we weren't trying to get moved out of here. "She" says that's just what you need Rog, to have a big project going in the garage and we get a legit offer on the house. She's right of course, bu...

Whoops, sorry Kens. Almost missed your post completely. Just went back to recap and there it was. Oh yeah, always ready for a boat ride... was really hoping for an offer from that feller that crossed Lake MI in his Tubby Tug. Perhaps on the return trip. :roll: Good to know the string is still going....

Yep, went right to it on the map Bill. Was near Thayer a couple of times... two years ago we went round about to Poplar Bluff to buy our "Rowdy" dog. And last year we met all our kids and grandkids up at Montauk State Park for a week of frolic on the river, then came back the southern route to Norfo...

Thanx for the "Backatcha" Bill. Heckydarns, you know more about were I am than I do. To explain... I would have to look up Thayers, MO :oops: We live in Golden, MO, down on the banks of Tablerock Lake, plumb near the AR border. We retired here from Littleton, CO 10 years ago. So hard, but not imposs...

The Gathering

Hmmm, I'm a newbie. And a Wannabe. Howdy! Have been watching for many years now, and enthused about building my own, and convinced of Glen-Ls site along with their products and support. Have been wishing & wanting, right along with many of the other posters on the site. I found this string and decid...
