Hiya folks!

Murray from Ottawa here, Canada's capital and already starting to snow...I've loved being on the water all my life and have decided to get a runabout for the cottage as my folks get older and the family starts to grow. Researching the options I've decided to make one instead of trying to salvage an old cedarstrip and coat er in so much epoxy she sinks. I look forward to all the advice and encouragement I'm sure I'll receive on the forums, and in particular the commiserations.

Good luck, welcome to the forum. I think building new is a good choice.

Was there any particular designs you were looking at to build?

Welcome to the forum.

Being in Ottawa you have a pretty decent source for wood and epoxy nearby.

There is a place in Manotick called The Wood Source (out on Mitch Owens Road). They carry marine plywood, white oak, douglas fir, a few types of mahogany and the entire line of West System products (epoxy). Everything you could need "close to home".

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 :)
