I have it in my head that I want an anchor well in my Jumbo and it appears to me that building a flush deck up front is the way to go. I'm big on being able to quickly deploy an anchor when conditions warrant.

On the other hand, I need to ask if anyone thinks there might be any issues around flush bow decks. Apparently you just build your deck out of the same thickness that you choose for your shelf capping and the the bow deck flows into the shelf caps.

Am I giving anything up, over Renn's normal design?  Thanks.

I think that white topside paint is a good idea in most of the lower 48 here is the US. Not sure about AK, or across the pond, but that UV shit can really wreak some havoc! I wasn't going to use white, but have been moving more and more towards that for anything above the rails...

Fine looking skiff
I'm with you on the white paint, the sun is intense here, the finish takes a beating.

Keep it up
every time you post, I drink a beer.

That's funny...reminds me of a drinking game we used to play years ago called Roxanne. We'd listen to Roxanne by The Police and take a drink every time the name Roxanne was sung. Got tiring toward the end of the song.

Don't ever shut up Dave! Your no B.S. input here is priceless. There are very few if any guys who have as much practical experience using the hell out of these boats, and as Renn a tool to get you where you need to go to fish or hunt. I always look forward to your trip reports.

We do the same thing with Sean Hannity, every time he says "Ronald Reagan"!

I guess I'm just a slow learner as my work bench looks just like the one pictured.   Shocked

You guys have better eyes than I do. I see tools, but I don't see any bench there!  Wink

Well, if the Superior Plastics eBay ad hasn't been changed since your purchase, it promises 1.5 gallons (192 fluid ounces), which is a volume, not a weight. There is not a single mention of weight in the ad. If this is the eBay listing that you purchased from, then Superior owes you another 22 fluid ounces of resin. A fluid ounce is a volume...1/8 of a cup, not 1/16 of a lb of fluid!  Angry

20' of chain, 200' of anchor rode and a galvanized anchor will add a little weight up front.  I'm glad the 4 blade prop worked out for you.  Tour boat looks awesome,  congratulations.
