      Dink,
      Forgot to congratulate you and yours on the marriage. Its a wonderful institution as long both remember compromise and the desire to make the partner happy first.
      I've managed it for 32 years.

        Thanks eye, and thanks for the link. Their website used to kinda bounce back and forth from the west coast address. At least I can get back on there thanks!

          Had to redo some of my frames after splitting them... a couple times. Cross braces across the top make these things much more stout. Almost ready for permanent installation

                Let the sawdust fly! Can't wait to see that drifter completed! Hey from the looks of that Trooper you may have the makings of a fly fishing guide!

                  Eh, my buddy lived the guide life for a couple years. Not for me. I'm excited to see the hull complete but scared sh/tless at the same time because I have no idea what to do with the interior. I'm thinking of full length side trays supporting the rowers seat and cooler seats front and rear. On the other hand I'm thinking of the standard pipe mounted rower and forward seat... decisions decisions

                    Part of this whole process is learning how to be a woodworker. I've got some Boy Scout bird houses under my belt and a senior year shop class fancy looking box to fill out my carpentry stats. I didn't want to mess up this expensive qtr sawn oak so I figured I'd better set up an accurate system for ripping long boards. This is what I ended up with



                    Not the prettiest, but worked like a charm and gave me 4 perfect soon to be chinelogs



                    Now to scarf them together for 15 ft logs and bevel both sides

                      I wish I had the woodworking skills. Looking great. I have another buddy who built his own canoe. Its something I imagine that will be cherished for generations.

                      I keep thinking one day I will commit to building a bamboo rod. I'm not sure Mr. Oyster has the patience for dealing with the likes of my skill level.

                        Eye, that's the thing, I don't have any skills. At least I didn't until I started this project. Trial by fire is the best way to learn. Once you drop the money for that class you will learn quick!
