Re: Tahoe 23

The old-school tool-bags that lay out flat when you put them on the floor are great - Tools spread out so you can see them, easy to toss tools onto them instead of putting them where they'll roll off/fall through/forget where you put them, and you can just grab the loop handles & everything is g...

Re: Inboard/Outboard range of motion.

Re: Tahoe 23 project, Norway

I'm sure I've seen other construction pictures of this dash, showing it being constructed out of "stepped" wood laminates, like Lego, before being sanded to shape. Van Dam really continue wooden boat building into the 21st century. I love the classic shapes but modern designs like this sho...

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream", a True Grit design- Illinois River

Love cruising stories - keep 'em coming Curt. I've mentioned them before, but members may find the "Narrowdog" series of books from fellow Welshman Terry Darlington entertaining; especially "Narrowdog to Indian River" where he chronincles cruising the Intracoastal Waterway in a 6...

Re: Michael's ZIP

If they were my frames, I'd be more than happy with that... but they're not my frames. Painted frames against bright hull looks good too.

Re: Official G11 Tee Shirts

Same shirt would be fine, but I also think something more timeless may be good too - Not wishing to drift into tasteless merchandising, but maybe framed limited edition prints, caps or something...

Re: Official G11 Tee Shirts

Maybe you could offer an special commemorative design in addition to the G11 one for those who cannot attend - I for one would take one!

Re: Gentry in Colborne ON.

Great work! - I wasn't sure about the blue when it was on the trailer, but it really works when in the water! Sweet!
