Re: Food

Rich and I will be heading up to Alexandria Bay after the gathering. Consequently, we won't be bringing any appliances for cooking. We will bring chips and water and other things we can leave and pitch into the kitty.

Re: Hello from Vermont

Sapelle is great to work with. It can be gnarly in the grain pattern causing it to be prone to breakage during bending of chines and shears. I used it on the Torpedo for the framing, keel, chines and shears. It stabilizes the wood if you laminate it in 1/2 finished thicknesses. That way the grains c...

Re: Hello from Vermont

Welcome aboard! Good to have another woman builder. I also like Okoume. Joubert is the best. There are some Asian brands out there that seem to be fine. Best to look it over, though. Joubert no worries.

Re: mystery motor problem

If you don't already have one, get a repair manual for that motor. It should have an electrical circuit diagram that you can trace out. You may have a bad ground or open circuit. Could be a poor connection in a plug.

I use State Farm. Better rates than Haggerty.
