Re: modified malahini

That light looks nice on the boat.Plus,it looks like it has a hole for a short burgee flag pole.A Glen-L burgee would look nice there. :D

Re: Thinking about my next boat build.. a river cruiser?

On "Chug",the back door also is the door to the head.Will have to add curtain to porthole as well as door.Might have fold up shelf above toilet.My headspace is a little smaller but tall enough for me (6'3") :D

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

:D I used a combo of 1/4 plex and tempered glass on "Chug".Tempered on the 3 front windows and plex on the side windows and portholes and removable back door window.Tempered were cut at angles so cost 100 bucks a pop.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looks good,Carl.How are the windows opening? or are you going to stuff power window hardware underneath?

Boat Ladders

After watching "Open Water II" tonight,I see the importance of having a boat ladder.and not one of those fold-up jobbies stored in a locker.I mounted a Teak swim step and drop down step on "Chug-A-Lug".If one falls in the water-how are you going to get back in the boat?

Re: Chugalug's BoJest

The fancy dansy drain plug didn't leak however some of the topside cracks did.Nothing that a bead of 402 can't handle except its too cold out to apply it.I've been busy trying to figure out the admirals seat-the fold-up chairs were too short.And the missus is only 4'10-1/2 so had to elevate so she c...

Re: New Builder in San Antonio, Tx area

Seems a shame that one is selling templates from others plans.I made templates from plexiglass piece .using largest piece and recutting the same one into each smaller ones.I thought Glen-L sold the plans to use for 1 boat.Part of the fun is figuring out stuff and coming up with what works for you.ju...

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

:D It sure is nice to read about your adventures.I've read Ray Mackes adventures as well as Tom Smithermans.I think Tom sold his "Knot-So-Fast but still has his genesis parked in Dermopolis,Alabama-along your route I think. :D
