Re: Favorite Boat Building Tools

One more. Fpr circular blades I always use carbide tip blades. Thin kerf and make sure they are a vented blade. You will see tapered slot cuts on the sides.

Re: Trying to find a certain build

Back when I built the PH15 all foam I did the extended deck. Go on the PH 15 site and look at the pictures.

Re: FS17 in Steinhatchee

Just a hint for FG itchiness. Take some baby powder and dust your arms and back of hands etc. Powder fill fill in the poors on your skin and help to eliminate the fg itches. makes you smell better in this heat also. :doh:

Re: Where is the Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) plan?

If you ordered some surfboard foam,which is a really Dence :doh: foam, you get yourself some rasps of diff sizes and shape your own style. The foam can be epoxied together with some mahogany strips edgewise and glued together. Cover it with some 6or 8oz. Glass. Finish it off to your likens. :doh:

Re: Varnish Over Glass
