How do you plan to use this boat?  Cruising to where?

We are two hours by Interstate from Olympia, Washington at the southern tip of Puget Sound. And from there, it is a straight shot into Canada. My brother in law has a waterfront home near Gig Harbor with a mooring buoy that makes it convenient to stop over. Another stop is Anacortes to see friends before getting into the San Juans. We usually anchor for a couple of days, and then spend a third night at a marina for showers, pump out stations, and groceries. The estuaries near the mouth of the Columbia are a good source for waterfowl. But before I get too adventuresome, I will consult a friend who is both a duck hunter and a professional Columbia River Pilot as he knows every item between Astoria and Portland. Puget Sound between Everett and Bellingham is also a good location to hunt sea ducks. I am exchanging favors with a friend who belongs to a small exclusive duck club that owns a private island in Padilla Bay. The plan is to spend the night on the boat and hunt during the daylight from the island blinds.

Regarding your comment about supplying fuel to your kicker and perhaps running a second fuel line from your fuel filter. That's what I setup on my previous boat and I loved it. No extra tanks to mess with and the the kicker was always ready to go. No issues at all.

That is all I need to hear. Thanks. I will start on that project as soon as I wrap up some paying work (pesky day job of the self-employed).

That's incredible, Russ.  How do you plan to use this boat?  Cruising to where?  I'm going to have to show these pics to my wife.

Damn, I'd love to buy one but I only have a 30 inch width between the stringers on my Jumbo. I'm assuming that would be too tight.

Board Help / Re: Preview not wkg for me

Steve,  For some reason the preview function isn't working for me.  It goes into fetch mode, but never comes back with it or at least it takes longer than I am willing to wait for it.  I think the "get" or whatever went out as I can see corresponding traffic on my reverse firewall.  The post function works just fine.  I've turned on "everything" for this page in NoScript.  Suggestions...thoughts?

Not sure how I managed to miss this question back from August... This was on the old version of SMF. How is the new version working for you for Preview? Appears to work fine for me.

General Discussion Tolman Skiffs / Re: No limbers!?

I drilled a 1" hole before putting the deck down.  I used a gloved finger to work in un-thickened epoxy until I was sure it would soak up any more than followed with thickened epoxy similar to what I used on scarfing joints.  I did this a couple of times and then sanded it with a dremel hole sanding attachment, about 7/8".  I keep a 1" transom compression plug available so I could plug it if I ever needed to isolate it from the bilge for any reason.  This allows me to have open limbers for ventilation into my bilge and out through the transom.  This is the same method I used for the 1" bilge/transom drain.  Seems to work so far.  Ken
