Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

The beams look great from the recessed floor. I like the idea of carpet on the floor too, the plywood sheet boats like Zips and Malahini's are pretty loud over rough water from the flooring, that would deaden that sound quite a bit I think. The cold molds always seemed so quiet by comparison anyway....

Re: Fiberglass Whitehall

I sand between everything. There has been a lot of talk about chemical vs mechanical bond on here and other forums but over 3 builds I havent had any experience that either would ever possibly fail. 24-48 hours to me seems way too long without sanding between but I'm no expert on applying multiple c...

Re: Fiberglass Whitehall

Yep, definitely multiple correct ways to do it. I also advocate for the seal coat prior to fiberglass. My main difference is I never liked applying more than one coat at a time, tried it once and didnt like the result which lead to lots and lots of sanding. Ever since, over 3 builds, I have always d...

Re: G15 River Run

Ken, did you look into Steve's Landing waterfront grill? https://www.steveslandingsoddy.com/dockside/ They say they have plenty of car and boat parking on their website. I'll call and ask what "plenty" of boat parking really means. Its about 2/3rds the distance of Amigos. So a little closer, north o...

Re: G15 Dates and Location

I booked one of the Loft Lodges. Forgot to ask which number. When I called it went to a 3rd party answering service who took my name and number. Pam called back within the hour and got me booked and I received a confirmation email. I asked about the Pool and she said they don't close it until it get...

Re: G15 thanks for your support

Thanks for taking the bull by the horns Ken. Between Covid and Hales Bar deteriorating this thing could have fizzled out. The event has new life with new places to explore by boat! Thanks to everyone who has made this event what it is the past 14 years and to everyone who keeps it going strong in 20...
