Re: 2 missing 14yo boys on 19'cc

It's also sad for children every where as the helicopter parents will just hover that closer to their children. Teenagers need their freedom, the tricky part is just how much. On a similar, but much happier n...

Re: A Cracker Built GF18- Splashed 2-14-15

Condolences to everyone involved. It's always hard to lose a close friend or family member. However, what a great way to go, under the open sky doing something you love. That sure beats a hospital bed hooked up to machines. That has got to be the one of the greatest send offs ever. You are all lucky...

Re: CH14 metric dimensions and materials issues

Article in Slate by Diane Selkirk

There is a wonderful article in Slate.com by Diane Selkirk, who is Evan's wife, on cruising with kids. It is in response to what happened to the family that had to be rescued with the sick child.

Re: Sandply for cheap canoe?

Sandeply is made in south America from plantation grown Norfolk pine. It is much better quality than most local made ply wood. I'm building cheap canoe from it my self. I would just say you're building a cheap canoe. The plywood is not so crucial as when building a planing boat. I built one with che...
