Re: Squirt in Manitoba

The hump at under the keel at the stem is normal and fine. The dip in the keel toward the back will need to be faired out. You want that 4ft section where your level is to be totally flat with no dips. I like the twist more like your second set of pictures. I found it easier to get that result by fi...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Wow, Matt. I just caught up on your build. Good to see so much progress!

Welcome back Andy!

An all painted boat can certainly be classy and striking looking. Go for it and be sure to send us updates. I hope you are feeling at home in Idaho now.

Re: New member from oregon

Wow, thats a more damage that I expected to see from that.

I had to leave an anchor to the water gods today. No matter what I tried I just couldnt get it up. I think it was in a mess of sunken logs.

Re: scrap pieces save some

Man, thats a bummer on the dock rash!

If nobody closer speaks up... Ive got some 3/8" scraps I could ship you. Probably could cut two pieces to fit in one of those USPS medium flat rate boxes. Those boxes are 12x13x3.
