Re: VHF Radio?

I use a handheld Cobra marine radio in my damn plastic boat (175 bayliner), and I carry it with me in my wooden Paddle board and kayak. I mainly boat on the Inter Coastal waterway so normally there is a lot of chat on those channels. I am planning on putting in a fixed mount VHF in the Calypso.

My intention is to use tracing paper and glue that to the wood for cutting., I just wasn't sure what is meant by not making 2 separate halves. I mean each frame kind of is 2 halv...

Re: G-13 Lunch Run to Chattanooga 9/13/19

Marta and Myself are going, but we probably won't be able to bring our boat. So we will need a ride.

We are still trying to make it for part of the weekend, but we will dr...
