I used the 2nd edition and wish I'd bought both.  I built a Jumbo and used a highlighter for the pertinent information.  I read the book twice before cutting the first piece of wood and still scratched my head a few times during the build.

You can't argue with success, and many many Tolmans have been built without assistance from others - I think the bottom line on Renn's books is that while the big picture may be hard to comprehend when you sit down and read them cover to cover ... PRIOR ... to building the boat, that's not how it is WHILE you are building the boat.  I think it's best to cruise through his books fast, then just start building and read just the part(s) that you need to for the task at hand.  It all becomes clear AS you do it ... no worries.

No 'standard' yellow and red ones, eh?  We always used to have good luck on them.

State Farm.  I have everything thru state farm since I got my drivers license.  Not sure if that makes a difference.  Had no problems with getting insurance for business/home/auto/boat and such.  I know someone else on fishy fish had state farm, I think in Alaska.

I have State Farm as well in Alaska.  No survey required.   They asked what the boat was made of and I told them a composite of fiberglass, epoxy, and plywood.  They asked what I thought a fair replacement value for the hull was and I think I told them 60K + trailer + motors.  I think the total came in around 75K 8 years ago. 

In all honesty at this time in my life I would probably just cash out and let me son take me fishing in his boat.  I would assume if my boat wasn't available he/we would have extra impetus to finish his.

Getting insurance is easy. Getting coverage for what the boat is actually worth is more complicated. If all you want to do is get coverage for the materials, all you need to do is show receipts and or a spreadsheet of the material cost, but forget about the many hours of labor. To get replacement cost, you need to get a marine survey and that will get you up in the real and actual value.
I am getting older although I hate to admit it. Building a new boat might not be in the cards for me in the not so distant future, even though I might relish the idea. I'm only as good once...as I ever was🤠

I just insured my boat with Boat US.  I told them it was a Tolman and they couldn't find that in their system. (imagine that)  I told them it had been insured with State Farm, and if they rather I could go to State Farm again...  The kind lady then talked with an underwriter while I held, and they looked up this website, got an idea of what the boat was, and then gave me a quote.  No survey, no nothing.  Done in about 10 min.

We bought the second book.  Good reading!   Information is presented differently that the plans for the GA. I see now why tolman Builder's buy both

I like the crystal flash in there. I like to use a lot in my flies too.  Of course I haven't tied in probably 10 years myself.

I'd always get crazy and tie up a bunch and then have to wait to fish them and lose interest. Good luck with you cabin fever and I hope they catch them up for you.

Dave that will look great on your roof.  Like you said it will match your rod holders and rails.  Looks like your welding on the aluminum is improving a bit too.

Nice man.  Go santa.  Go dave.  Go fish.
