Re: Chugalug's BoJest

:D I'm also trying to mount TV and DVD player in "Chug" so we can watch movies while chugging down the lake.Wife took a picture of me napping one time.Guess going slow is kinda boring. :lol: No Titanic or Jaws movies tho! :lol: Maybe Twilight Zone as I'm there most of the time anyway :lol: :lol:

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

There's always little tweeking that needs to be done to get what you desire.Part of the fun of doing it yourself.I'm thinking on a few changes to "Chug" to facilitate my new ideas-mainly to open up pilothouse sides so I can use her to fish out of.Going with soft side curtains instead of solid.So thi...

Re: 2020 was a boating bust

But it was a bummer too for me-I was locked out for running up into Canada.Had to stick to the open water areas of Minnesota.Only a few gunkhole spots. :(

Re: when to notch

I goofed by precutting for'ward frame for battens.Should have left that frame until batten was laid on others (didn't quite line up and had to cut kerf in batton front so could bend without breaking.Wired down out of the way a little and glued up when hull flipped.

Re: 2020 was a boating bust

That's a bummer,folks."Chug" spent her summer in the water.Put JD Select bottom paint on a couple of years ago and she still looks good.Diddy-mo from the lake wouldn't stick.Took her out in the rough stuff a few times and know what I'm going to change on her. :D

Re: Just a bit of "Chuggin"

Not yet.Been too lazy,I guess.Kinda cool now and skeeters would have kept me awake last summer.Boat is now on the trailer for the winter.Had to go wading off the end of the ramp as the water was low.BRRRRRRRR!Plan a few changes-maybe more enclosure canvass and less hard enclosure. :D

Re: Just a bit of "Chuggin"

Theres a reef to avoid on Flag Island and a sand bar on one of the little islands and Brush Island to venture slightly in but they're threating 3/4 million fine if caught fishing or 1 million if bringing covid across.Yikes
