Re: A very unusual request....

The Lauan is a problem. 20 years ago, there was some good cheap Lauan around but what I have seen since was not great. Let me think about it. Completely understand.... it is why I wanted to be forthcoming from the start. I doubt I would build using it again. I called around and found a public scale...

Re: A very unusual request....

First Jacques, please accept my apology for my initial disbelief.... The first boat I built and subsequently sold ten years ago was heavy... This one was built with the weight being the first consideration, as I am now in my 60's and a disability hinders me. This D5 I built with Luan and 3/8 ply for...

A very unusual request....

First off, I'm not much for forums anymore.... far too busy. I never realized retirement would keep me so busy! The house, the boats, and life in general. I love it. That said, I finished the second D5 I was building. Sailing version. My darn dog wouldn't stay in the boat. Methinks he doesn't like t...

Re: Sure is quiet around here...

C'mon Larry. I'm a good skipper.... but seriously.... 50 miles out in that boat with that lack of freeboard, with a 70 Yammi even in the best of shape ever with best of maintenance.... really?

In the GRAVEYARD OF THE ATLANTIC ???? :help:

Come clean.... :)

Re: Sure is quiet around here...

I know what you mean, I also walk in controlled stumbles, and that's when I'm sober :lol: I'm no youngun either. If I was overweight my legs probably wouldn't even hold me up, they ain't what they used to be. Too many boat miles I reckon :? It is an extremely stable boat and compared to a D15 it wi...

Re: Sure is quiet around here...

Yesterday on the 1st I reinstated an old tradition of mine and went fishing, albeit not truly offshore . We threw the SeaPro in the water at Port Canaveral and trolled the beach off Cape Canaveral Air Force Station looking for some Spanish. Marked a bunch of bait, but didn't find anything for the bo...

Re: Florida D5 #2 build...

Go for it :D Mast is from a sailboard, not a boat, but might work fine. Beautiful dog! I'll do just that, Larry... after a quick trip to Lowes for some supplies. I'll try to get some pics In the meantime. Sail is at the sail loft, local. I expect to get the call to pick it up any day now. That mast...

Re: Florida D5 #2 build...

Been busy, busy, busy. Neighbors are aghast that someone in this neighborhood is building a boat at home..... Love it. :lol: Faired the boat (outside hull) for the second time, completing yesterday... with the new System 3 Fairing Compound, no longer called Quick Fair. It's 85 here during the day, u...
