I second building the jig.  Super quick and easy.  I'm not sorry at all I built one.  It's not pretty but cuts straight scarphs.

great score, I did not see the original ad.  We need pictures.

Design ideas kind of depend on your use.  How big to make the cuddy/pilothouse/fish deck.  You can adjust these to fit your needs.

How much time you want to take to get the boat built.

My cuddy/pilothouse is going to be the same length as cgrfish (25' jumbo).  I plan on sleeping in the cuddy and want to beable to have a small table in the pilot house with sink and such.

I was out there yesterday too and noticed how nice your boat looked especially when running upriver!  Congratulations on getting some fish in it!

There are a few Tolman's used for dipping on the Kenai.  I don't use my J24 because of the cabin, but I have seen a blue one out there the last couple years and they do fine with it.

Those ocean fresh reds are the best in my opinion.  Mine were landed, bled, filleted and either in the smoker or freezer last night.  Did 3 cases of canned today.

 Ha ha. Had a 22' aluminum Bayrunner from 1992 (bought it when we sold the sailboat, 37' trimaran I sailed back thru the South Pacific) to 2003. Almost same dimensions & angles as J22 and one of the ways I talked Bruce into building the Tolman. Just was night/day difference between the 2 boats, can't really explain it. Funny part is we lucked out selling it to a airplane pilot retiring to Homer, Ak for $8k after we stripped the electronics and Yamaha 4s o/b just before launching the Tolman. The timing was impeccable. B & B

Got mine this year, right on time, but had to buy a fishing license for the part of the season before the magic date.  One other thing you don't have to buy is a king stamp although you still need to write them on a harvest ticket when you catch them.  I don't think you need a state duck stamp either.

One of the few benefits of getting old!  There are some property tax exemptions when you hit 65.

I am just down the freeway from you in Salem. I am almost half way with my build and getting real close to flipping. There is another build in Albany, and one just completed in down by Brownsville. I know there are also several completed boats in the Portland area, just not sure who they are. If you are curious about styles, look on the main fishy fish site down towards the bottom. there are lots and lots of photos of finished cuddy and wheel house arrangements.

Welcome to the forum, you are right, it is a great group who can answer the questions that need to be answered and give you tips to save time, money and aggravation. I have been on here for around three years, and have yet to see anyone flame someone. Just an overall great group of guys!
