Re: 2020 Southeastern Boat Builders Meet

Of course you are welcome to book your own cottage but keep in mind we still have a couple of rooms available in cottage #18 if you are interested ($100.00/night)....

Re: Eric's C21

If there is any way possible I would build a set of stairs. You are going to be in and out a million times and using a ladder is just asking for a fall. It is amazing how much time and energy you spend just crawling in and out of the hull. When I built larger boats I hired a minimum wage helper. Mi...

Re: Eric's C21

You see the fender reflecting on the side telling just how smooth that girl is :D I am sure you know this but when you get her home try to set up storage next to the hull and at gunnel height. That will save you a ton of crawling in and out. I hope to use my scaffolds but my driveway slope a good b...

Re: Eric's C21

I spent this morning cutting rubber strips for my tanks. I beveled the edges with a belt sander to make them easier to pull in and out. Held in place with packing tape for fitting purposes. The sides used the 1/4" thick strips as projected. The long ends only had room for an inner tube thickness. Ta...
