Re: Minnesota Squirt Build

Hi Brock,

I would epoxy a piece of scrap in that area and re-fair it. Check the sheers and other side as well, and do any "touch ups" at once to save epoxy and time. If you try to fill it in after the sides are on, you risk having gaps and dealing with cured epoxy in the gap.

Looking good.

Re: 17' Whitehall Planking

Search for videos on strip canoes or kayaks. It sounds like you are trying to do the same thing they are doing.

If your wife is at least "tolerant" of your hobby, things will go much easier! Good luck, we'll be watching your progress. :D

Re: Coronavirus

I went to the supermarket yesterday to pick up a few things, and our paper aisle looked the same way. All the other aisles were reasonably well stocked, so I'm not sure why people are hoarding TP. It is like an old movie where there is a run on the banks "how does something like this start?"

+1 on Tom's comment. If you can move the form around, you should be able to get at any side/area that you need to.

There have been a few Gentrys built with a "mother In-Law" seat in front of the motor.

Re: Ottawa Squirt Build

Hi Anthony, Looking back at my build photos, I tapered the battens forward of the last frame they contacted. It looks like I took them down to about 1/4" thick at the forward edge. All of the battens were glued and screwed to the frames prior to applying the bottom plywood. You need to do this to pr...
