Re: Pee Wee in Maine

This posting is about a month overdue, and for that I apologize. During our vacation my wife & I scooted down from "our end" of the lake down to "283's end of the lake", and had a very nice, albeit way too short, meeting with Mr. 283. His boat is very cool & completely aw...

Re: Transporting lumber

My Sapele plywood came from Boulter. I drove from NJ to Boston and picked it up with my pickup truck. Very pleasant buying experience. Boulter is a fairly unimpressive place, but they have a ton of stuff! That said, call ahead & make absolutely sure that they have exactly what you want in stock ...

Re: Potential Audeen build

FH = Flat head Somehow, "Stainless" gives the impression that it's the greatest substance known to man. Not at all true. First & foremost, it disintegrates in the absence of oxygen. Once you "bury" the screw in the wood & cover with epoxy & fiberglass, the countdown b...

Re: Audeen swim platform

I hope this thread gets some traction, as I'm interested in a platform of some type for my Ski-Tow.... I'm not sure my boat lends itself to such, but I'm thinking I could make something that's small, but enough for a skier to "get a knee up" to aid in re-boarding. I have ideas in my head, ...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Look at that sunset!

I've had a tough, tough couple of months at work (project management / construction) and I *NEED* that sunset! I can't wait!

I'll PM you with my contact info.....if you want to meet up for boating / ice cream, I'm game!

How high is the water level this year?

Re: Lake Hopatcong (NJ) Wooden & Classic boat show 6/23

OK.....one last brag! Then I'm done. Promise! Woody Boater magazine ran a short article on their website about the show. The very first picture is the bow of my boat with the burgee of my yacht club, the Androscoggin Yacht Club in Wayne, ME. So cool! http://www.woodyboater.com/blog/2018/06/25/lake-h...

Re: Lake Hopatcong (NJ) Wooden & Classic boat show 6/23

I'd be willing to wager if statistics were kept on the number of people who started building a boat and actually finished, the number would be 10% at the very highest. I have to admit: there were a few moments during the framing process where I thought " the fire pit is right over there... &qu...

Wow, wow, wow! First of all DrBryanJ, thanks for stopping by!! Great to see you! Hope you had a good time at the show. Awesome boats, huh? Next: I almost didn't go. The weather forecast was simply ghastly. Thunder & lightning all day. But aside from a 5 minute sprinkle around noon, there was no ...

Re: Where to buy boat insurance?

Haggerty.

I called 12 insurance companies......when they heard "home made", the conversation ended. By contrast, Haggerty was happy to discuss my boat! I have ample insurance for a very reasonable cost. Give them a call!
