But we are also still getting into to high 90s and a few 3 digits too. Oh, and this week a tropical storm that came to be a few mil...

Re: Question about OB 15 plans.

Just purchased the digital download for the OB 15. Looking at the the pdf files, there are a few size discrepancies. Between the metric version and the standard US version.

Re: Barrier coats

What Joe2700 and piperdown said. But I'd like to know if "piperdown" references bagpipers leading a suicidal battle charge, or maybe a steamfitter after a boiler blows up? Did you ever use Cold Tar Epoxy on your keels/boats? Was reading a thread in a Boat builders FB page, asked if I was any good. ...
