Re: Pit Blinds

A couple of ideas :help: :

Build in a bench seat along the back. Maybe a shelf for ammo and "necessities" along the front. A step on each end for getting in/out. A more complex build but the extra angles would add rigidity to the box and make for less of an excavation.

Re: Wire Chases for Small Boats??

:lol:

I think Jacques would like to see builds that achieve the simple elegance of his designs.

Some come close, most have other ideas. Sometimes alot of ideas. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm guessing Jacques has nightmares, literally, about over-built boats.

Re: od18 project for sale

Wow. Going through your build thread, it looks like a quality build with some extras.

Not in the market myself. Hope you get what you're asking, or enough to be satisfied.

Have you tried Craigslist or maybe ebay?

Re: TJ's V10

That's a beauty. The brightwork looks very rich. The oarlocks are setting a new standard in ... oarlocks.

Now go put on some wear! I want to see scratches, dings and dents!

Didn't want to say...

Instead of rolling a rock up a hill, it'll be an eternity brushing varnish.

Best live right.

Re: New Designs in the Future

Another design of this type I'd like to see would be a prone paddleboard: long and narrow, you kneel and paddle with both hands. You don't expect to stand up on it, just cover alot of water. It would be cool if it could be used kayak style, kind of like a surf ski, and have capacity to carry skin di...

Re: Epoxy Mixed 2-to-1 as 1-to-1 !

When doing this kind of work, do-overs and recovery are part of the bargain. You're going above and beyond here.

The main takeaway though is never, ever, ever mix 2:1 as 1:1...

Re: GV-10

I like to be able to slide around on a seat. Kiwi grip would tend to hold dirt/fish blood/guts which could transfer to clothing, where paint is a quick wipedown.

I'd keep kiwi to the heavy wear areas, or areas where you need the extra traction.
