Designs for inboard or outboard power
Kudos! Thats coming right along. I don't know what happened in the area of the glue deal that I read about on the other thread. But normally unless something is out of wack or did not properly clean your wood, the bond of epoxy, especially thickened epoxy is stronger than fasteners in some cases.
Thanks ,ill sand off the old stuff and make sure its clean.all the other ones are fine >no big deal then,THANKS again ! oh yeah,i have a question about the breasthook and i need to secure it to the ground ! so theres no movement.sounds goofy but im thinking about getting a larger piece of wood and secureing it with some large tent stakes . there about 18 inchs long and i think they will do the job .then ill screw the breasthook into the wood.i just have to make sure i can remove the screws after i plank it ! no ill just pull out the stakes and remove them after i flip it.
Well i have not been feeling to great lately but what ever time i had is gone, so now i either have to go with the tent i have or build a rugged shelter out of 2x4s and tarps,if i use the one i have ill have to reinforce all the framework and a extra tarp on top as snow is very heavy Dec,Jan,Feb and March UGG
I feel your pain about those covers even though I use them all the time. Last year we had four major snows which is pretty rare that yielded more than a dusting of snow. I had to go out and pat the undersize of the top to get the snow to avalanch. What a pain, but at least it was temporary for a day or so at a time.

Fantastic! We are all looking foward to updated photos as with some many others that hopefully will be coming out of hibernation. Keep in mind too Sept is coming quickly guys.

Well let the battens float across several frames, installing both sides and then stand off and take a look see to see if the shape of the battens are simular. This may tell you that one or more of the frames are correct and properly aligned or not too. Wood will tell you where you are supposed to be.
Thanks,well i went back out and i butt joined my chine.i was working with a piece that was to short and was just working to far forward.now its full length and screwed near the middle and things make sense now.thank god ! it just wasnt working out before .my battons and frames are fine,i got the longest lumber i could find and i should haVE JOINED them early. man i was getting P.O. !
