Mon, 12/04/2017 - 11:27
Here are a few pics of my latest project - a carbon/Kevlar Mariner Max. The original owner was Bob Perry, the yacht designer. It hadn't seen much use as the hull only showed a few very light scratches and buffed up to 'like new' condition. The boat had been left out in the sun for a ...

Other Want a project?

Sat, 12/02/2017 - 09:50
If you know anybody who wants a kayak hull to make into a project, let me know. The one I started on 16 years ago was removed from the basement this morning, and is going to the curb with a “Free” sign on it until the first time it rains, and then it will be 3 six foot sections for heavy ...

Off Topic Drydeck Glue

Fri, 12/01/2017 - 10:05
I'm making a drydeck for my workout boat to eliminate all the layers where the skirt and paddle jacket overlap. In the past I've always used Mcnett or Aquaseal. I'm using an old Seals nylon tunneled skirt and junky old paddle jacket. Does anyone have any experience using Gorilla glue ...

What are your thoughts on the screw on top grab handles vs. the rope through the hull. Does anyone have experience with them? Are there any real disadvantages to using them?

Skin-on-Frame Douglas fir dimensions

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 14:10
Hello, My friend gave me a couple old growth Douglas fir beams from a re-model of his 1912 house. I'd like to try and make a baidarka, as described by Zimmerley and Brinck, with this wood. Fir, I've read, is stronger and heavier than spruce. Can it be then cut thinner? If so, then how much? ...
