New memember from Cambridge Ontario CAN

Postby dslaney » Wed Jan 06, 2016 7:53 pm

Hello everyone. New member thought I would introduce myself. I am in the early planning stages of building my first boat. I have ordered the study plans for the Coronado. I am certain I will be on here a lot over the next few years.

Hello Darryl,

Glad to see Canadians here! Even more glad to see neighbors.
I am a beginner as well, just ordered Glen-L books. Hope to start in couple weeks.

Are you planning to go on the boat show next week?

Hello, sorry for the late reply, yes I di get out to the boat show with my daughter last weekend. Nice to see so many beautiful boats, and found some suppliers for the upcoming build.

Same with me. Checked out engines and trailers.
Really enjoyed classic runabout on the outer display.

You have a half decent wood source right in Cambridge (A&M Woods on Eagle St) - I picked up all my frame wood from them (when I lived in Cambridge - ok Galt :) ).

You are also just an hours drive from Noah's Boatbuilding (Six Point Road in Etobicoke) - they are probably the best source for marine plywood in all of Canada - also carry every brand of epoxy on the market and just about everything else you could ever need to build a boat of any description.

The only thing I disliked about being in Cambridge was having to drive quite a few miles to actually launch anywhere..

Yes, Plywood is "real" wood :)

A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)

Graham,

Thanks for advise about Noah's. I think I'll pop up at their store on Friday to check it out.
I was talking to guys from "Exotic Woods" to get a quote from them for plywood and mahogany. Now trying to find more prices.

Sorry for off topic.

Exotic Woods has some nice stuff - I get curly maple from them for making gun stocks but their prices for (structural) wood is not the best (Douglas Fir, African or Philippine Mahogany, White Oak etc), they really are more of a specialty place/fancy wood.
