Done all 3 of those, the first two are no big thing, epoxy and wood will fix the first, and a little money the second. The third one, man you're on your own there, and Lord help you when the bill comes in!

Fear

Fears:

Tests (excluding the boat test)
Hitting rock with the Tuffy
Unable to repair
Under powering


What people should be feared of:


Stealing from me
Touching my Tuffy
Driving my Tuffy (though you'd need a key)
Stealing from my cottage
Asking to be able to drive the boat (Andrew N has)


Pet Peeves:


Poor dinner manners
People talking about work, while working the same job as them - out of work
People who have no idea what they're talking about (me sometimes)
Little or no knowledge about safety


The good side:

Need for speed
I love knowing all the attributes, statistics and specifications about something before I get into it, behind the wheel and starting it up

What I fear most is that Bill's boat will go forward in reverse and reverse in forward. :lol:

John K,

You just don't know how many times I've checked that! :lol:

I have the single lever control and had to change it inside. Hope I did it right! :?

You mean to tell me that when Kens slammed into the dock at guntersville that was not intentional ????

He told me that it was a southern boat initiation ritual ... :wink:

1. Epoxy/catalyst ratio correct?

2. Did that drill just go through the hull?

3. I just heard a "crack"... I just heard a crack, I know it.

4. That piece of wood was NOT warped when I planed it... like 5 minutes ago.

5. Endless numbers of people, who sigh dramatically and ask, "Is it done YET???????"

OH :!: The dreaded "CRACK" :!:

I heard it one night. I was on the second layer of the hull. It was one an inner layer of the chine lamination. I didn't find it untill after the turn. All better now.

No. 5. God I'm tired of that one!

I did not know you could have them backwards. Just a joke to keep the thread alive. It has been fun reading comments from builders.

Great thread, Bill.

I believe boat building patience and "distance of vision" is what keeps us in the groove 8)
