Sport fishing for Dungeness crab opens in 2 weeks stamped new ID plates for traps and added 3x5 trailer buoys to identify as sport trap in case of whale or turtle entanglement. I cast that anvil in college 44 years ago :D

Re: RowMe

Sanded 220 grit, dry wipe dust, wet wipe real mineral spirits, rolled and tipped 2nd coat. It almost looks like a spray job. I think I like Pettit EZ Poxy better than Interlux Brightside or 2 part epoxy paint.

Re: RowMe

I was walking my dogs to the park and Davey Tree guys were having a hell of a time putting this American Elm through the chipper it was squealing and smoking. In California elms pick up silica from the soil and it will dull any steel edge very fast. I brought them back a hand turned Chinese Elm mall...

Re: RowMe

Bottom battens and sheers are epoxy and screwed onto the hull, screw holes filled with epoxy fairing putty. I've been looking at this bottom for 2 months now, as I lay an 8' oar and tape on it the aft 4' seems to be flat but looks to be 3-1/2" rockered in 8'. Will it plane or porpoise when I bring a...

Re: RowMe

Due to the pandemic and trade war I could not get Mahogany in the quality and lengths I wanted so I had to scarf join the sheers in the back where the bend isn't so dramatic. I made a scarf jig for my chop saw and sharpened the blade. Leland

Re: RowMe

Thank you to my Mother and Grandmother 60 years ago for showing me how to pull a thread to get a straight line that came in handy to split the fiberglass cloth down right down the center. I reinforced the transom seams and bow with biaxial cloth and got the epoxy seal coat rolled on. I got a headach...
