Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

Thank you Bogieman and Pee Wee! I was thinking the same thing about a template Pee Wee. I have been wanting to get the template guide set from Harbor Freight and it seems the only way I will be able to add the clearance to the hatch frames is going to be with a guide.

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

GB what you are saying about the exposed end grains makes sense. I am building my foredeck hatches and opens now so it is something for me to think about. I too will be working with 6mm ply.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

It blows my mind every time you talk numbers. Just one day of you taping a hull piece is more tape then I will use on my whole build! And the $$$$ 8O Would the cost savings be worth the weight added in the long run using plywood? Maybe core for exterior walls, for insulation, then ply and hardwood f...

Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

It has been a long weekend! I started Saturday cleaning the rest of the boats that were used for the regatta. They all had to be power washed along with all the seats, paddles and PFDs. I am down to the last 18 boats :( The temps have been in the upper 50s and I stay soaked for most the day. I am do...

Karma is a friend.

I just realized I only have an overflow and no intake on my livewell install!

Re: Flats Boat Console build

I am so happy I was not taking a sip of beer or the screen would be covered in it! That coloring book needed a warning label Bob! Hope the book will do you some good. You know you have to post pictures now of your coloring! :lol: :lol:

Did you get SandPiper wet or you just started on her console?
