Re: 10' IMP

Agreed, laminate them. Instead of bending one thick piece bend two thinner pieces that will make up the same end thickness.

Re: New member

Welcome Flytyer,

What are you building? Fellow Hoosier here. There are several builders within an hour or two drive of your location. I'd recommend Johnson's workbench in South Bend for lumber in your area. I drove up there from Indy to get lumber for my last build.

Re: Missing persons

I believe I remember them. Want to make sure I am thinking of the right couple. She was very easy to talk to about anything and he had built a nice working/fishing skiff the last time I remember seeing them at the 2014 Gathering.

Re: Deck Caulk

I used the dap on my rc model glen l zip. It has been perfect and it went on very easily. I didn't even tape, just spread it in the joints,use a plastic spoon to spread it then as it dries clean the excess off the deck with water and a little solvent. I did not varnish over it.
