Re: How Long Does a Plywood Boat Last Sitting in Salt Water?

Jeff
Maybe for you, but I think I could play an entire round with a sling blade and my score wouldn't be noticeably different.
It didn't really help my game. But would you want to be in the middle Ponchitrane with the weather turning and wonder about your hull?

Re: How Long Does a Plywood Boat Last Sitting in Salt Water?

I agree with Oyster. Buy the good plywood! A friend taught me years ago. I was going to buy golf clubs. There was the set that I wanted and there was a copy set. Roy told me to pay the money. After the pain of paying wears off, you don't want to stand over the clubs thinking I wish I had bought the ...

Sure don't have that picture. It will depend on your bend. Usually I would start in the middle and work out.

Re: Fisherman

Eric I usually work alone. Working the whole side as one big panel won't happen. I put the first sheet, then clamp screw and glue the backer piece. Once the glue is set, I bolt screw and glue the next panel. The bolts help bend the new panel to match the rest of the splice. Bolts are removed and the...

Lose of Brian Dow

I got this from the UPSpirate, From Bruce Dow, I think it is important to let my Glen-L family know that my dad, Brian, passed away a few weeks ago. It was peaceful and beautiful. I could not have designed it to be better. Dad was so proud of the work we did on the Monaco, and loved his trips to the...

Re: Seat backs and bottoms (epoxy)

It certainly won't hurt to epoxy the whole thing. I did.

More hp will help into the wind. For current stay to the inside of river bends going upstream, outside coming down. :wink:

Re: Bo Jest: power questions, engine type

The 9.9 will be fine. You hull speed is about 6MPH. If the current is 6, you aren't going any place. You won't over power it. Watching the current and avoiding it is far more effective than HP. I used to paddle up rapids watching and knowing how the currents worked.

Re: Count Down

Ken was one of the first, if not the first, instigators of the Gatherings. The state park people didn't want to work with groups. They kept deposits, even after several of us stayed late making sure it was all cleaned up. After the 3rd year, they told us it was completely booked the next year for a ...

Re: Count Down

Bryan Thank you from everyone. But... maybe it works because this is a group of doers, of coarse cooking, bringing boats and...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

For sure use bronze fasteners in that area. Most tools will cut through them.

Re: Count Down

Andy Sorry. We just put this together here. We are not sponsored or funded. There was an attempt at one on Lake Powell, not enough interest. There were a couple near San Francisco. The organizer got caught up in worries about liability. Had one in Australia with a good group. Australia hopes to do m...
