Always something!!!

My daughter goes to the garage at about midnight to get some medicine from the car. We discover the next morning the cat followed her out but not back in again. Of course there is no cat box in the garage, so where does he piss. On top of my stacked tackle bags. Ugh!!!!

Re: GV11. And so it begins...

You can flip the panels with just the joint glued if you are very careful, but I'd suggest just doing one side at a time. You'd have to flip them with without letting the panel flex at all to keep from disturbing the fresh tape. Use fast hardener and you can probably flip in 3 hours if it's not real...

Re: Gv11 seat frames

Butt blocks are fine. They may make taping it to the hull panels more difficult.

Re: Anyone Fishing?

Caught this pretty 3 pounder at a local neighborhood pond. Took my son there with some small jig heads to catch some bluegill and give him some casting practice. Only second time fishing there. He's only fished from the boat, so this was a learning experience for him. I was tossing a small white mep...
