Re: Sintes 21 Rebuild

Weather is challenging us, but this place is gorgeous. We are going to try and take the dory up the Kenai river today. Gale force winds predicted out of Homer. There's a lot of these REALLY BIG cervids walking around here! Pics to come. David and his family are great hosts, even though his daughter ...

Love the time capsule idea and a sturdy plastic jar would be my pick, or a PVC tube with end caps.

Re: What and where to foam

Plus all that Narfi...following your build and I'll bet a good six pack (highest bet I make) there will never be water under that deck unless you smash into a rock (or ice berg in your case).

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

I think maybe we are talking about two different things. Atleast your linked picture is of the batons for the upper deck. You are right! That is for the deck!

There's a deck in the front of the Dory as well. The spaced battens were ala Crack...
