Re: Building The Vera Cruise

thanks Carl. I want a 18-20 boat for fishing and have been trying to decide to build not or just get an older one that has been re-powered.

I am leaning towards building.

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

I had the same thoughts. My motor had the tube for the steering but none of the proper attachments to hook up the controls. I looked into it and I could "make" it work but it would have been cobbled together a bit. Also by the time I bought all the parts I was spending a lot to get something that I ...

Re: Tuffy Build

thanks, we are happy with it. My son was nervous at first because it was made of wood and he thought it would sink, then he would not stop driving it. I just ended up using a piece of of wood for the skeg. I used epoxy and proper screws to fasten it, it is holding up well. I have pulled it up on bea...

Upgrades

Got a new motor and steering setup which kind of started a chain of other events. Had to raise the transom height for the longer motor. Changed the colour, red is the wrong colour for someone that hates paint. Still needs at least another coat of each but the nice weather came so it will have to wai...

Re: Tuffy Build

Thanks, it was a good couple runs. The kids were not huge fans of the wake from that cruiser, but they toughed it out to get to the bakery.

I will try and get some pictures of it in motion next trip.

Tuffy Launched

The boat has been in the water. Never sank, never took on any water so I going to say it was a success. With my 25 with a busted up prop speed was showing at 26 knots.

Re: Building the Zip with the NEW Zip Complete Wood Parts Kit

Did the chine piece come like that, or is this something you made?

I like the way it looks.

Re: Tuffy Build

thanks Gayle, I chose this one as it looks different from most others.

Used the one part Interlux paint. I used this paint because it is carried nearby.

There is no problem with the paint itself, I am just not good at painting.
