Sound like your bull shit alert is going off...

That would send my bullshit meter into the red zone but unfortunately my bullshit meter pegged and exploded after reading this...

45 mph, in the chop, no pounding!
Just can't help yourself Mo, you just have to be an asshole.

There's nothing like drinking a beer and watching free entertainment.

I think a jousting match in your boats with tuna rods as your lances is in order.

Yup, works great on my cheapo  :) Amazon Fire, with no camera, tablet. 

Question:  Anybody know if there is a Tolman either wood or aluminum Tolman Skiff in Skagway, Alaska?

Spotted one there maybe Tuesday or Wednesday.

My Tolman baseball hat from the Jim Shula hat shop, made it there and back to Maine via Seattle, WA, by Explorer by the Sea.  All the food and water furnished by Royal Caribbean.

Stay safe everyone.

A properly epoxy sealed wooden plywood, stitch and glue hull will last a lifetime
Bottom line for me is Renn's techniques

Snip...

BTW, the Gougeon brothers are usually credited with creation of the wood epoxy saturation technique (WEST).

I had one of my Thistles at the Wooden Boat Show in Port Townsend and spent a long time talking with a great guy who knew everything about epoxy and a lot about Thistles. I finally asked him his name... Meade Gougeon!



It was really cool to hear about how they experimented with epoxy and restoring boats. Very glad I had the chance to talk with him. I did feel funny having told him how  much I liked Progressive No-Blush Epoxy and that I now used it exclusively. <grin>

He only runs the downhill side of the waves ...that's how he gets that mileage.  Old seafarer's trick...

Welcome Andy Mac.  There are some great people on here that are willing to help.

You're welcome to come down and check out the Jumbo I just started.  I'm just a little south of Chesapeake Beach.  We could even go out and fish a little if the weather cooperates.

Similar experience here. Ten boats, twenty-five years, zero rot. But I cannot say if it will last a lifetime until after I am dead.
