Noah's has 1/8"/3mm BS-1088. It ain't CHEAP! But, Zebra isn't either.

I think Jimmy is right. I think without a backer, it will slit/check/crack.

Bring Something Else of Yourself!

Dave is planning to bring his Teardrop Camper! (And, I'll bet his guitar.)

You probably have other interest other than boatbuilding.

Lets' try to bring something else of ourselves. It might be an interesting way to get to know and understand each other.

Any takers?

Steve,

Alabama won't make you eat them , yet. My friend is not a boat builder, yet. But, would cancel the Hampton for a cabin. Lauren is going to start talking with Lolas, no promises.

I'm 8) Building an inboard now! I run an inboard sailboat now! The sailboat has a really big rudder. That makes a Big difference.

If I do a next boat, I'm thinking a 25' mini tug with I/O.

Why not prizes for basic stuff, like mechanicals/systems installation. (engine, plumbing, electrical, bilge)
A prize for best workmanship (fit & finish)
These could set a precedent at such an event, and span a spectrum of of boats.


I think, I can live with this kind of idea.

More pitch by itself to bring down the rpm will probably maintain about the same speed. More diameter by itself to bring down rpm will slow you down. But, you'll have more pulling power. You may not have enough margin to play with both. 1" dia. or 1" pitch can easily knock out 200 rpm. A P...

I talked with Dave this afternoon. Since, we don't know how many boats of what type or state of completion. We are kind of against best of boat prizes. What about some thing like for "Longest Drag" (Boat from farthest away), Longest trip (If Greg comes we'll have to decide if he came from ...

:shock: A friend of mine, who wants to come look, just sent this to me.

"You may already know this, but the state park cabins/chalet accomodations are already booked for the event. Karen booked us at the Hampton Inn."

So, you better be making plans! 8)

I have a piece of Zebra downstairs 2x2x24. It's fairly light. I haven't used any in a long time. But, as I remember, it is bad to splinter. I seem to remember that you should be very careful with the dust. It's toxic to some people.

G'day Ron, Sorry to hear the problems. I put the first coat on the inside of the planking as I put it on. I coated all the places that I knew would be hard or impossible to do before planking. After the turn I coated inside with the deck off (It is still not on). :cry: I wish I had coated the frames...
