Thanks for the pictures. One small gripe, little to dark to really see the below water part.

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

The outside skin is plenty thick. Get all cleaned up and then you will bond the new plywood in with epoxy/wood flour. Then tab that into the hull and cover it with fiberglass. You will want to have at least as much thickness as you had to start with. Same goes for the stringers. Make them at least t...

That white crap is glass that was not wet out well when it was built. Yes you need to get rid of any of it you see. How thick is the glass skin now that you have it all cleaned up? In the end your strength is going to come from the plywood you will install and the way it will be tied into the hull.

Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2

You are doing this for a little more HP to get the boat out of the hole? Are you still running the Yanmar 370 in it?

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

With her 4:1 length to beam ratio, light displacement, and large rig, Great Sandy can out-sail just bout any boat of equal length. On legs when in a pod of sailboats motor sailing, experience shows she's just about unbeatable by boats of similar length. Her Autoprop is Great Sandy's secret weapon. ...

Don't know much about deer but those look like they have plenty of horn on them. The hog looks huge :!: I am sure it is great to be able to take the boys hunting with you. I will always remember going hunting with my dad this time of the year. On the boat front you did a heck of a job getting that t...

Re: LM 18 First Time Build
