yea, if i had to give up all my shop tools but one , i would keep the table saw. there is literally nothing it cant do if you have jig or know in what order to make cuts at what degree.

ricky, i fish from fayetteville to lock 3 and inbetween locks 3 and 2 most of the time because i can be on the river from home in an hour.
most of our fish going 15-30 pounds, and probally 12-15% of them going 30-40 pounds.
largest i've seen this year was a 60 pound blue caught at fayetteville.

i'm in nc and am getting ready to start the od-18 for use in the rivers and sounds. i bought the plans for the gf-18 but i decided against it for two reasons. its not really what i want in a boat that type. i want it bigger. and outside of a river that big flat bottom would put me back on the operat...

if you had asked that 6 or 8 months ago like i did you would have been flamed for sure, but it seems the flamers have changed their tune a little since one has been built . there is a recent thread with discussions of soling and putting a center console on it.
