Re: Gentry in Minnesota

Impressive boat Dean. I just spent some time this morning looking over the whole thread. Really makes me want to get started.

Key largo Power

Hi all, I'm looking to get a good jump this summer on a new boat, likely the Key Largo, once I finish up my squirt. I am looking at engines for the KL and wondering what a good price would be for a used 4.3L mercruiser or other lower HP small block. I'd prefer not to buy a new engine to help with co...

Re: I did it.. Bo Jest launched

That looks really nice. I am especially fond of the open cockpit look. Gives me visions of a nice convertible top that sit along the transom and the can cover the entire cockpit. A bit of engineering but would look fabulous and gets you out of the sun when needed. Boat looks stellar.

Re: The Epiphany

Bob, I just realized that you are right down the road from me (I am in Fort Mill). Looks like you are making some progress. I'd be interested to see the boat as you move along. Might spur me to get started on something finally. Jeff, That Dart restoration/rebuild looks really nice. I guess I need to...

Re: Flat bottom boat

I wasn't planning on building a Candu EZ, just browsing pics and got to wondering. Just think about boat models a bit and was curious. Thanks for the replies.

Flat bottom boat

Hi guys, Quick question if I may. I you had a boat that was flat bottom, and I mean dead flat both longitudinally and transverse, and there were no appurtenances other than the hull, would the boat float dead level? I believe it does but I am not sure. I was browsing one of the Berkley Engineering m...

Re: Started Key Largo

Looks good to me. I miss being out west. I was stationed at Hill in Ogden for several years and 4 years in Great Falls MT as well. Looking good thus far. I recently almos thad to move so had delayed my build of a squirt but now that we are set to stay here I foresee boat building starting soon here....

Re: Roberta's Super Spartan

Thank's Bill! I followed the plans and directions pretty closely. The order things are built is important to prevent getting painted into a corner. 10 ft plywood wood be nice if you can get it. I did build up the transom a little by adding the 1/4" ply to the aft side. I highly recommend using Okou...

Re: Tavares 2012 Boat Show Pictures

The show was a good time. I got a ride on Thayer IV on Saturday. Sure would like to have a boat like that!

Re: Lake Dora/Sunnyland

I haven't decided yet. Right after I completed the Zip I would have said yes, but two years later I seem to have found other things to do with the time. I like the Whitehall but not sure how practical it would be. Plus, it wouldn't take that long to build. If I start another, because I like the pro...

Re: Lake Dora/Sunnyland

Only 8 more days until Sunnyland!!!! Can't wait until next week. I'm going on Saturday. Still no boat to take but I bet I walk away from the show with something, maybe a motor for my Squirt? Thought I might get creative. Getting a shirt made saying " Here alone. Have cold beer. Need rides!" Maybe I'...

Re: Congrats to Dave Lott

Funny how the pizza stood out. It did for me too. I never tied the name I saw in the article the other day to here until I read this.
