Maybe my experience is abnormal though.
When is it not?! :lol:

I vote foam. You got me thinking about what to do for my GT. I like the idea of foam under the gunwales. I could do it behind the seat backs. It would serve to float the boat up right but also stiffen the sides.

Hmmm, I’m no expert on bar crossing but it looks to me like he was a bit slow to get going again after the first big wave, then is a bit side on when the second wave arrives.
I was seeing the same thing. He took it in the side.

That looks intense in a small boat...

Re: Masking/taping the deck for non skid/ smooth boarder look

Cracker Larry used to use cereal boxes to place his tape on. He would then cut the curves he wanted. He commented that you had to be careful to not cut through the first layer of the box but still cut through the tape.

He was a master boat builder so practice first!

Re: Orca 16 kayak modification

If you are paddling, I would go for the FS13 instead of the SK14. The width difference will make a significant difference in a day of paddling. If you want to use a motor then go with the SK14. I wanted a light weight skiff that will spend time paddling so I went with the FS13. I need to get back at...

Re: fs17 materials

I'll second the Okume! Bends better than your local stuff will and you only want to do this once! For the ~$100 shipping fee on the plywood, buy what you need from Bateau or make a trip down and take a vacation! That's what I did and camped an hour north of them. I didn't even need to take a trailer...

Re: SK14 Sweet Spot

The SK14 should have a doubler under the sole. That is where the heavy stuff and the grab bar are meant to be placed.

Re: AD 14 KIELGE

As I get older, the more I regret muscling things instead of using finesse. Muscling has lead to a number of problems as I get older. I had a girlfriend that use to love watching me throw hay bales into the barn loft. I miss that loft and those days! :wink: :lol:
