Hallo Tony,
What a nice picture and the sandy beach is also perfect to tow the boat out.
Have lots of fun with your tender.
Greetings from Karl ( Austria )

Hi Tony,
I can understand that you will not come to Florida to the boat builders meet. I just looked again at your pictures in this thread and you have got everything I would want to have close by, the sea. As you know I live in a land locked country and its a 450 km ride to come to the Adriatic sea where we go to Croatia once a year for a week to have a holiday at the sea. When I mentioned to my wife that the builders meet falls on my 70 th birthday she suggested to me to celebrate it with going there as I do not like big ( birthday) partys and would much rather be at the sea. That is how most probably my last long trip came about. If I could see the sea and Golden Gate Bridge like you just about every day, not ten horses could get me away from such a nice spot.
Wish you fair winds and nice sailing trips.
Greetings from Karl

Some updates.
First, here's a look at some of the rowing expeditions I've done around Marin County, just north of the Golden Gate Bridge. I foolishly did not record all of them.
Image

Secondly, I cleaned the boat a bit and had a look at some specifics after two years of relatively hard, if not regular, use. I thought these photos might be informative.
First, the good news:
Bow seat, which is glassed, looks OK. Stern seat looks as good.
Image
Center thwart, which was also glassed and obviously gets the most use, is fine. The blobbiness you see is a combination of reflection and wetness, as I just rinsed it off. There are no deep scrapes or gouges.
Image
Breast hook looks fine and again the irregularities are from lighting and water sitting on the surface. It's way shinier than this photo shows:
Image
Here are some other shots where wear is more apparent, but the point is that all these areas were glassed, and had they not been, these scrapes would have gone through to the wood.
Top edge of the transom:
Image
Gunwale bordered by the rubber rail (blobs are not peeling paint but water on the surface):
Image

Now the bad stuff. Pursuant to Jaysen's look at his boat, here are a couple of spots, one at the knuckle below the stem:
Image
And the really bad one, just forward of the bronze runner that protects the skeg. Note that the bronze is fine, but the skeg, covered in two layers of glass and about 4 or 5 coats of graphite/epoxy, is down to the wood. The bronze has held up extremely well.
Image

I'm going to put at least two more pieces of 3" glass tape from the stem to the beginning of the bronze, and then several more coats of epoxy/graphite. The reason I didn't continue the bronze strip farther is that it was screwed into the skeg, and forward of where it ends screws would have penetrated the hull.

On another note: I have added an extension to my cart and with the extra length, it is a breeze to just slide the boat into the water, and recovery is equally easy. You still have to maneuver it in and out of the truck, but that is comparatively easy.
Image
The 1" ID pvc has an OD that fits just right inside the 1.5" OD aluminum extrusion. It is held in place with a stainless bolt and wing nut.

She looks good Tony. I'd be tempted to run that bronze all the way forward. As far as the screws go... 5200. How many HP are you generating with those oars? :)

The bronze is attached with screws as well as 5200 and is adhering very well.

Man, it's Herculean! :wink: :lol:

I do about 2.5 knots comfortably and about 3.2 with a little more effort, in flat water with no wind.

Ha!

My thought was more that 5200 would hold that strip on with just about anything a person or the wind could hit. I'd only bother with screws on the bow (where built up) and on the skeg (over drilled and filled). If we were motor boats... then I'd think we'd need screws through the whole length.

Perhaps I should have more confidence in the 5200, but I've never used it in a situation where it was likely I was going to drag it over a rock.
Just now I laid three more layers of 3" tape stem to stern. It's kind of an ugly job compared to my original but I'll do some shot at fairing just a little. The fact is, even I never see the underside the boat, and if I don't, who does?
