Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I really like the u-Tah cartridges for large jobs like a lot of battens and parts where you need a lot of small dabs. Roberta :D Roberta: Where do you get the u-Tah dispensers and what model u-Tah do you use? Do they make 5:1 mixing for the West System epoxy? If not what epoxy are you using? Mannan

Re: Complaints Department

Re: FOOD!

We're in a "floater" and I just realized it has no oven. Can someone staying in a land cabin loan us your oven to heat up the BBQ for Sat. night?

Re: FOOD!

Bill:

If you want to make your famous Chili, Becky says she'll make a crock pot of Brunswick Stew and a large bowl of Coleslaw. She's thinking of making some other stuff, but nothing firm yet. She's flexible, so keep this thread going.
