Re: Hi from Perth, Australia

Well at least you'll have something extra to look forward to when you come home! Be sure to take some pictures of it in the water, that's going to be quite the site.

Re: Any advise for installing shear on 19ft Tahoe.

I know there's a bit of a size difference but on my Squirt I went this route: - Cut the sheer into 2 pieces to be laminated - Soaked both pieces in a PVC pipe with water for a day (I just soaked the length that was making the bend) - Starting at the breast hook, I made the bend using clamps every 5&...

Re: Microplas Microboat

I think those 1950's to 1960's one-person fiberglass boats are really cool. There was a pair of similar looking boats that came up for sale north of me for around $200 a piece and was really tempted to pick them up.

How much does it weigh? It could be a lake hopper.
