Warren, My son-in law took the frame kit home yesterday. I am going to help him set up the building jig this weekend. He is excited about starting a build and the grandkids are excited too. Mike has never built a boat but he has built some very nice built-in cabinets so I dont think he will have any...

This Gathering was enjoyed by all in the Narducci clan. It could not have gone better! We all had a great time and hope that everyone gets home OK. How about that Leakcheck setup ! That was the best chicken I have eaten, and I consider myself a pretty good BBQ'er. Great people, great food and cold b...

All of the above

Have a positive attitude, its not very common nowadays.
I would rather have an employee with a great attitude and low skill level than one with great skill and a sour attitude. You can learn the skills, It's extremely hard if not impossible to modify a lousy attitude.

Actually, after researching before I started my build, it seems that if the fastener is fully encapsulated, galvanized would last longer than SS. The best bet is SilBrz. If the fasteners are exposed to weather , SS would be best. It seems that SS needs to have oxygen to keep the surface from disinte...

Stainless screws should not be used if they are encapsulated. They will disintegrate in time. SS needs to have exposure to air or water to remain corrosion free.
