Good to see you back at it. Our Tourism last season kinda sucked.Lost alot of reservations as Canada was closed to non-essentials.We got a few of the ones that stay a month or more-they had to brave the open water on south side of lake with their own boat or take passenger ferry(30 ft Sportsman laun...
suppose if the loop is pretty large,fuel might get in but vacumm should suck it out enough.vent is not plugged and comes out in little fitting on tank top.bout the only time I get fuel in mine is if I overfill tank.Maybe if your cap is vented,you might not need it.
Ditto on what Roberta said .My vent had 2 screened holes.I located one straight down and other to stern.with enclosed tank,I needed vent so no vacumm was created.Most outboard tanks have a vent in the lid.
don't overfill in enclosed spaces.will pop your boards loose.Might have to up heat.They say you save money by building your own boat.I Fibreglassed my boat in January so went thru 3 semi loads of wood for heating in boiler.At 1400.bucks a pop-wheres the savings?Sure is fun tho.
Don't plan on reusing the mix container as that stuff gets really sticky and hard to get out of containers when cured.Not sure what happens in colder temps but foam in a can won't set up too much.Don't glue yourself together if you get it on your clothing

Thanks ,Bill.I had heard that he sold "Knot-so Fast" but not the big boat(I thought that one was metal)I had also heard somewhere,that there was a fire at a marina near there.Was hoping his boat wasn't there.Also knew he had health issues before this covid crap.
Saw this post on the web and had to search for it on here.Thought it might be a good topic to bump forward as I need the same thing on "Chug".Wonder how Tom is doing?Haven't heard anything on last e-mail quite awhile ago(before covid)Maybe Bill knows.
I've done that years ago, when I had my 24ft Fibreform boat.Chug is my slow Bo-jest boat.She just can't keep up to the waves so trials sometimes were pretty rough.Canada waters are closed this last year to recreational non-residents so weren't able to venture up there so limited to Minnesota side on...
Yeah! When the waves are going faster than you,tends to broach a little -alot of steering correcting.I was just out to see if I would have problems.It took me 2 hours of chugging to get to that spot.There is a few islands with cabins nearby.I never venture out to the Big Traverse as there are no isl...
