Re: Matt's Geronimo

Looking good Matt.

As far as anchors look at the Mantus 8lb. Add a little chain and one of the bungee lines. In mud or sand it’s a drop and forget about it deal when you want to set anchor.

Re: Resize Plans- Squirt

+1 on the pee wee.

7’6” by ~4’ beam.

I stretched the frame spacing on mine 2” which is about the max you can go and still cut the side panels out of one 8’ piece of ply.

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Nope, went to my local town office. They had me fill out a form that they faxed to inland fisheries. Got back my Hull Identification Number that I now have to carve, burn, emnboss, stamp or otherwise permanently affix to the hull in two locations. Once I do that I need to bring pics of the HIN on th...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Yes, going in the water this weekend :D Just need to wire up the bilge pump and second kill switch on the dash and it’s done. This winter I’m going to add some more varnish to the decks. And I need to see where the waterline is before I varnish the topsides. But done enough to get it in the water. G...

Re: Squirt Build - New Builder - Deck planking

Congrats on the new build. It seems everyone does the deck planking a little bit differently. Depends somewhat on the tools you have and the look you want. I remember seeing pics somewhere of a builder using a spring board to set the curve and then using a router for the outer planks. Looked like it...

Pm sent

Lake was very very low last week. Been a very dry spring. But we got a lot of rain yesterday. Plus side though is the water temp was up to 72 already.

Never get tired of that view :D

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Needs some touch up paint and a few coats of varnish and she will be ready for final assembly. Sea trials should start in a week or two.

Still on Androscoggin. View of the lake last Friday night

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Cart looks stout....

Little late now but the thru lock’s fastemaster sells are pretty slick. They work on any size timber lock and install pretty quick. You get the best of carriage bolts and lags. With no pre drilling.

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

Mike Down here if you are too near the water table, or you have poorly draining soil. You will have to go to a raised bed system. That basically means a sand bed build up on top and maybe a pump to get the crap up to it. It can be done. Be careful! This damn place is amazing what you can find out! ...

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

We had a soils guy take a look. Good news is there is plenty of room for a replacement leach field since we would own the back lot as well. Bad news is the soil conditions are poor. Basically because there is an existing system that has failed it can be replcaed with a non conforming design $$$$. Th...
