Re: Do we have anything like this in our plans?

Also the dragonfly has a frame kit available for $200 bucks right now if flat bottoms are his thing. That price includes the plans! :o

Re: Do we have anything like this in our plans?

There are several dedicated fishing boats in the catalog including the 18' ski-bass which has a deep v hull. Much more comfortable in windy chop than a modified-v aluminum hull. I'm sure it has a lot more storage space too which is nice to have in a fishing boat. I'll be fishing out of my geronimo w...

Re: building up the transom

Hi, Kirk, thanks for posting those pictures. Do you remember if you cut out the transom to the same width as the pattern for single motor or did you go narrower?

Re: building up the transom

Hi, Kirk, I am just about to cut the first boards for my very own Geronimo. I must say that the way you did yours is a big inspiration for me in choosing that design to begin with. I'm not sure if I can help you with your question but could you post some pictures of your motor well area and stern of...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Also, I wonder why on the patterns there are notches for floor battens in the transom and frames 1 and 2 but not forward of that. I'm sure it will become readily apparent when I get to that point. Just curious.

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Thanks Jeffs for the epoxy recommendations. Have you guys used System Three at all? Bob, thanks for the pictures and the comments. I like that fairing "jig." I wonder if I can rig up something similar on my #5 Stanley plane. Either way I plan to do a lot of fairing with the hand plane. I s...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Picked up some qtr sawn white oak yesterday. The supplier was Catawba Hardwoods and they gave me a very good price and he was happy to let me look through the pile to pick out whatever boards I wanted. The boards also have a straight line rip on one side which should make certain things easier. They...

Another Geronimo Coming Soon

So I decided that I needed to get started on my Geronimo now or I might never get it done. I picked up enough plywood for the frame kit on my way home from Raleigh last week. I am really glad that I only need two sheets of the 3/4" plywood! That stuff is not cheap. I'll be calling my local lumb...

Re: Plywood in NC, SC, or GA also Baltic Birch?

It looks like Hood Distribution also has a location in Greenville, SC which is only about an hour or so from here so that sounds like it could be a really good option. Thanks! If anybody else has any other ideas please keep em coming!

Plywood in NC, SC, or GA also Baltic Birch?

If anyone has any tips on finding some good plywood in my area I would appreciate it. I am in Western North Carolina. I found the Hardwood Store of NC and I think it is a strong possibility. I can be there and back in less than 6 hours and a tank of gas. I'm also wondering if there is a source betwe...
