I will do a little "recon" with them when I'm at the show tomorrow night. I'll ask who their designer is (among other things) I agree about the steering wheel... ugh. Check out the builder right beside Beam. They have a design very similar to the Ken H or Glen L designs. I forget their name but the...

He is asking CAN$71000 for the boat I saw at the show. It is not fiberglassed except the bottom. For some reason he said it was all the modern technology in a classic boat design.

Beam Customs?

Has anyone heard of Beam Custom boats? Found them at the Toronto Boat Show. There was another company right beside them based out of Montreal, built a similar boat, but forget the name. Does this look like a Glen L design or what? http://www.beamcustom.com/custom_boats.php Glad to see wooden boats b...

You should see what the pine beetle is doing out in BC. I've seen thousands of acres devastated by it. I've also spent some time in forests that were destroyed by forest fires, picking morels. It's creepy.

I guess I'll pass on elm wood then. It will surely end up as firewood now.

Rock elm or american elm good for frames?

I just got an email from someone who has "the largest American elm I could imagine" and will be cutting it down and giving it to me if I want. I read in the boat building lumber that it is best to avoid. But then I googled "american elm boat building" and get many websites that say it is a common bo...

Hey Chris, My dad and I have been using a hand-me-down Craftsman saw (Sears brand) for quite some time with no problems. If you buy a second hand saw make sure to try it out first and see if the blade turns without wobbling or the bearings making too much noise. I think with a bit of common sense yo...

If it's thin ice the plane could break through the ice and become an ice breaker. Seems to me it could send ice flying in all directions and possibly damage the plane. I say if the ice isn't at least 12" thick, stay off it. I too prefer not to fall through when I go ice fishing! This season really s...

Quote from the Monaco BOM: "All widths are actual size. All thicknesses are standard finished sizes, with 1" lumber being four quarters material, usually finished to about 3/4". The exception is the 2' x 6" motor stringers which are standard finished size (1 1/2" x 5 1/2")." So you can plane your 1"...
