Re: Fly fishing gear

You don't need to spend crazy money to get started, nor does your equipment have to say it's for salt water. The metal bits need to be stainless steel or anodized aluminum.

Re: Best plywood from Lowe’s??

Besides I don't think I've seen 1/4" exterior ply in stock at any of the big box stores. Biggest I've seen is 4x4 panels. My HD has full sized 1/4" BCX that I'm using for the deck template of my MF14. Note I said "template". It's not actually going to be part of the boat. I'm using cut offs from th...

Re: Hybird MF14

Cleats and wedges hold all the parts of the internal structure in place. The wedges make it easy to remove a piece without throwing the cleats out of alignment with the design lines drawn on the deck template. They also avoid screw holes in the boat components. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/user...

Laminating a sheer clamp: https://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/91275/normal_057_Laminating_a_Shear_Clamp.jpg Wait. The MF14 doesn't have sheer clamps. :doh: From the examples online, Moonfish builds end up with a noticeable gap between the deck and the side panels. The gap dissapears after it...

I'm using a BC plywood deck template so I won't feel bad about...
