Re: Glen-L Party Boat

The manner in which the artist rendered the finish give the boat pleasing lines and appeals to both a classic and a modern eye (provided some bright work is included). Had the digital artist chosen to hang classic outboard of the stern, it would have had a much different visual effect as well. I sus...

The time has come...

In early July, I pulled my boat from Kansas to Idaho where we now live. During the very complex move, it sat outside under a cover for 3 months in the mostly dry Idaho climate. It was an uncommonly hot summer. Now that the Zip is in the garage, I notice some wear an tear on the top deck. The bright ...

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Water WILL get in your boat, and sponges will NEVER get it all. This is part of building a boat gang. Have the confidence to do it, and develop the competence to do it right. I drilled my holes, put on rubber gloves, ensured total encapsulation of all exposed wood (per the book) and set my brass tub...

Re: Spitfire

I wonder if that is the new Loehl kit.

I like British planes so much, I put a ring handle on the control stick of my Airbike. :D

Update

Hello my friends, It's been a while. As some of you may recall, my wife and I were planning to relocate to Idaho from Kansas. It's been two months since we made the trip. Wow! What a colossal undertaking! I had posted some stuff about changing the axel on the Zip trailer in order to double tow (need...

Re: Key West again

For that boat: I'd choose single gusset full lap joint or the double gusset butt joint as Roberta pictured for you. You could go for a routed half lap joint with double gussets for what might be optimal strength, but be sure to cut the bottom member a bit short to keep any end grain away from the si...

If I'd had the chance, I would simply have said, "Thank you..., for what was and continues to be, the most rewarding experience of my life thus far".

Re: Upholstery for the Beginner

I did my own after watching numerous videos on youtube.

Its not good, but it works, and I can say that my boat is 100% sole-authorship.
That was important to me.

If you use staples at all, be sure to buy stainless!
