Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

We did not miss a beat, no rain, no wind. But have cut back to being open only weekends. Have a big event booked for both Saturday (today) and Sunday, that does not include our park venue. We are closed Labor Day for employee only paddle.

Re: Buying Okoume locally

Here is a place in Houston that sells it. Close to the same price that BBC sells it for but BBC is still cheaper. I would call first but they have BS1088 plywood in stock.

It has been my source since it is only a few miles from my warehouse.

Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

I missed that part. :D The first gear box was a different gear ratio than what he is using now, think it went from 1.1/1 to 1.5 /1, so there was a prop pitch change to make the most out of the the new gear ratio, but that threw off all calculations for the e-drive. But I think a few pulley swaps wi...

Re: AD16 Myrtle Beach

Congratulations on the new Tipsy hauler! that will make it easier to go when you want to. I am no sailor but I can see where the new swivel block/cleat will make things better for controlling the sail. Hi Fuzz!!!!
