Re: Hull paint question

Tho it might be tempting to use house paint.I'm finding that boat bumpers will wear it off easily.doesn't seem to be hard paint.

Re: New guy looking to build a boat specifically for camping

Coarse, if you're just using it to transport your stuff,I would look at the flat-bottomed skiffs.Look easier to build and probably go in skinnier water as well as performance with 9.9 motor :D

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Read somewhere about the two bilge pumps.Suggested an automatic or automatic switches-one smaller for nuisance water and a much larger one for emergency like hole puncture or shipping a big wave.Think the hint was in Woodenboat mag :D

Re: New guy looking to build a boat specifically for camping

You could build a smaller pontoon boat-20-24 ft with 9.9 motor.You won't waterski behind it but one could build it with space for tent on stern and 3 of those fancy tent/cot combos for the kids.or bigger tent enclosure.Everything can be folded up and stowed on board to facilitate fishing or what hav...

Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

That's too bad you couldn't continue.But it wouldn't be much fun commuting from fuel stop to fuel stop without seeing the sites.If Canada will be closed ,as you say, to recreational travel,I guess I won't be going up on the lake as well.We're keeping an eye on the Manitoba border to see if they rela...

Re: Epoxy Sensitivity

CPES has lots of thinners as well as epoxy.That stuff is thinner than water and really nasty.I don't break out from epoxy yet but feel like I did some fibreglass insulation without the mask.Scratchy throat(inside).

Re: The Not Cruise

Thought about a puddle jumper(as they're called up here) a few times but since I don't live on the islands,I have no use for one.A hovercraft might be fun tho. :D

Re: The Not Cruise

I didn't launch "Chug" today.Even though the lake was calm the water was too hard.My parking spot was also kinda shallow.

Re: Decoupage (paper inlay)

I've thought about that some time ago.However sunlight(i'm told) will screw-up epoxy so need a varnish over too.Interesting.might try strip-plank look that way too :roll:
