General Discussion Tolman Skiffs / Re: sleeping in jumbo
« Last post by starbright55 on November 14, 2017, 08:55:09 AM »
It’s a special day when we can share with ol DN.
So DN we glued a 3 inch soft foam mattress to a 1 inch hard foam mattress then covered with fabric it’s too comfortable If anything.
Up top bunks we made pipe berths, two horizontal pipes with canvas stretched between the pipes and stitched, practical and inexpensive but not comfortable.
My jumbo can sleep 5 easily but gets gasey.
I like that - soft up top but some firmness below so you don't "bottom out" through the soft foam.

I tried to figure out if upper bunk would be a good idea and I have left them out for now. We're only a family of three so I gave my daughter her own bunk under the dinette (with filler boards to make the entire vee berth flat if need be)

If it’s below deck I’d just scrape the sharp edges off the glass, that’s anything you can’t run your hand across. Wipe with acetone to get waxiness off.
Then apply generous coat of unthickened epoxy over the lot.
You have plenty of weeks later in the project to grow to resent sanding.

That's cool.  I saw that in Europe the vw golf tdi gets really high marks for being an extremely capable tow vehicle. Not sure if they do something different with the transmission here in the states but apparently in the US towing with the golf will void your warranty.

I was in Germany this past spring and I saw a Ford focus pull into the steel fabrication plant I was visiting with a dual axle trailer and get loaded with probably around 2 tons of material and off he went.  You would never see that in the US.

Hi David,

Do you have any info on the boat you are selling?

Thanks,
Jason

Good info.  You read my mind because Iboats and Cabella  put heavy discounts on some electronic models if same as last year.   I did see an earlier post of yours about getting the 10 year warranty it would be nice to see that again.  Last month Evinrude had 6 years warranty offer on Etecs.   

Portland Boat show is in January

The same answer as Cannon for Western Washington.  The manufacturing reps come to the February boat shows and they can offer the very best deals.  And they do.

Last winter around mid-December, Evinrude came out with a 10 year warranty on motors purchased prior to the end of March.  Maybe they will do the same thing again this year.   I've never seen any boat related Black Friday deals.  In this part of the country, the deals arrive in the spring at the boat shows.

Larspa,
 Not your standard tow vehicle, BUT, it will haul 5300#, 450 hp twin turbo V8,quattro all wheel drive,height adjustable suspension,auto leveling,550 mile range (unladen), 4500# curb weight. Only drawback is the expensive hitch. A great vehicle to drive and just slightly more $ than an all out Yukon Denali.
  I'm sure you want a truck or SUV but there are other options.
