Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Hi, First of all I must say your boat looks beautiful and I like the picture with the crazy flamingo but now a question to David. I know that there are moose in America but the one on your picture looks to me like a bronze statue or is it really true that they come so close to your house that the do...

Re: Wood flour vs cotton flocks

Hi, I could not get any wood flour here in Austria either but then I went to shops where they cut big sheets of wood panels and asked for the sawdust which lands at the bottom of these big cutting machines. I could get it for nothing and all I had to do sift the sawdust with a 5 inch diameter fine k...

Re: Bruce Crandall Flyer Hydroplane

Hi, I would say we should not stress the man especially we retired oldies who think live and dream boats and have no worry about earning a living. Good luck Peter with the Beach Party and we will wait for your boat pictures patiently. Take your time and enjoy every day, no boat builder builds the sa...

Re: FS13 Lolyboat

Hi, I meant if I would build the FS13 again I would just glue the skeg and rather fit a SS bar underneath like I did on my row boat Micro Petrel. On the following picture you can see the skeg of the row boat with ss bar screwed to it. On the other hand something like that adds again weight to an FS1...

Re: FS13 Lolyboat

Hi, I glued the skeg with epoxy woodflour mix and made a nice round fillet next to it and then I used a fiberglass tape over it while the glue was still tacky after an hour and wetted the tape with epoxy and a small roller. I only battled to get it smooth with epoxy and micro balloons after it was h...

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Hi Wouter, Your boat looks fantastic and I wonder how you get everything on it so perfect. If my boat would be so perfect I hardly would dare to put it in the water. When will be your splashing time and where will you mainly fish with your boat ? Build on and always let us see your progress. Greetin...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Hi, You only had a lay day in my case it was a lay Winter which went seamless into springtime lethargy but it felt good and your plan to sand today has given me the necessary push to start at last with my boat activities like finishing sewing the 3 metre sail bag for yard boom and sail. Greetings fr...

Re: knottyBuoyz III The TW28 Project

Hi Rick and Corto Maltese,
I wish you both a good boat building season and for me at last some pictures of the status of your boats. All of us who build things under 18 feet are longing to see your real size boats.
Greetings from Karl
