Re: TrueGrit/Coastal Cruiser Walkaround

That will be great for cutting out frame pieces and innumerable other tasks. Wish I had a bandsaw!

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Matt, you're doing a great job. She's got some sweet curves. Getting ready to do a bunch of RO sanding myself.

Are any of the gaps big enough for little slivers of wood?

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

On the Squirt is the keel supposed to be parallel to the setup level? If so then I think you are just about dead on. Somewhere in one or more of Glen's books he says that in a planing hull the aft 1/3 of the boat should be flat fore and aft. Ahead of that is not as important to be perfectly flat but...

Re: Squirt in Manitoba

Just make sure to double check plans and patterns and make sure you're correct off of the setup level.

Jim, that floating bar idea sounds like absolute HEAVEN to me! Just everybody wear a life vest so if you pass out you'll float.

Re: Klondike Build

Steve, no doubt you are in sanding hell now. It will end eventually. But it's looking great and the years of work are going to pay off very soon!

Re: Desperado 18" 19"

The entire transom doesn't need to be the full.thickness. Just the motorwell area. At least that's my interpretation and how I built my boat. So depending on the size of your motorwell you should have enough for three thicknesses of 3/4.

Re: Getting the boat to the water

That looks amazing! How far does it need to go? Glen-l 25 right? If so then it's legally trailerable without a wide load permit right?

Navy blue seats in the sun? I suggest re-thinking that.
