Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Can't add much to the prop discussion... I would definitely go with Bill's recommendations.

I really like the stack of white oak. So cool to have a family timber farm as a resource!

Re: modified malahini

Everything's looking great Bryan! The homemade stand looks very functional... getting (and keeping) the hull level and plumb is a huge help in building out interior details.

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks Jim and Bryan; we had a relaxed Thanksgiving. Billy, getting the doors built and installed has been a great relief (not to mention the enhanced privacy :lol: )!

Re: Klondike Build
