    Running on my feets. A lot. And the swimming.
    Wresting vegetative foodstuffs from soil with toil. Playing Gentleman farmer, as it were.
    Art is always happening here. And ukulele music...
    Making the boats.
    Using the boats. Often in conjunction with fish harassment.
    The reading of books. Preferably in the hammock under the persimmon trees.
    Apparently, now, this forum...

    That’s why me and Chick is friends... Hehe. Did I mention the trimaran forming in my head? Peace, Robert P.S. Yes, I always do like 400 things at once. Don’t even ask about the pedal car...
  2. Action Tiger builds sailboat. With epoxy!

    I. LOVE. You. Guys! Thank you all, for being you all, and for allowing me to be me. I am so close to done with this sucker. Whoo! Peace, Robert
  3. Builders in Michigan

    Sweet. I will find out what it is, and let you know “what it is”.Haha. Peace, Robert

    I didn’t cut myself. Peace, Robert
  5. Builders in Michigan

    Don, not a slight at Michigan. A fact. Someone in the southeast corner of the state from me is 7-8 hours, and I live nearly in the middle of the state. Barring snow, Michigan ain’t that much driving, is all. My friend is near Ann Arbor, by the by, and happy to advise, which I’m sure is what’s wanted more than actual help, right? Let me know when she’s at it, and we can connect them. Peace, Robert
  6. CS 17

    I have never seriously considered doing that. Very cool. Congratulations on the launch and the press! Peace, Robert

    I drilled holes in the hull today. On purpose. That is a weird thing to do, but the swingy bit needs hinges, and I aim to bolt them to the transom. I have not figured out how to bolt something without drilling a hole through it first. Yet. Peace, Robert
  8. Builders in Michigan

    I do know some folk up that a way. Not really South east, but Michigan ain’t that big. What kind of boat, though? Peace, Robert

    There’s a few mountain lakes around here where cats troll WITH corn. What kind of fish eats corn? Kokanee. I’m with Ken, but I’ll take streamers over foam bugs. Peace, Robert Also, this thread title is misleading. I didn’t know this was a full sized boat. I thought it was going to be tiny.
  10. Core Sound 20 Mark III #3 "Jazz Hands"

    Nope. Jinxed us both. I ripped mine all apart and started afresh. It still very rough. Of course, I didn’t get sick, but I have been this year, so we’re even. Get better. Peace, Robert

    Chick, it’s clear. Nobody can tell it’s missing. Peace, Robert

    Hey. Weight. Isn’t that the THIRD rudder blade? And final. About to get glassed. Along with the leeboard, which corner can be seen. All this nonsense happens on a shower curtain...:) Peace, Robert
  13. Any interest in a Catspaw build? Also featuring rabbits.

    Lovely. My friend’s mom (who is 70 plus years old...) has always sewn on her grandmother’s machine, since she was married and moved away from home. It sewed all her clothes as a girl, including her wedding dress. Hard to believe the service that machine has given. Dozens of amazing Halloween costumes were born on that thing. They are lovely to sew with, really, though I’m ham fisted, at best. Peace, Robert

    If that really is a treadle powered sewing machine serving as the after boat horse, you are my new hero. Bonus points if it works and you sew a sail for your boat on it. Peace, Bugs

    Yeah, but... Oh, right. DON’T say it. I think (I can hear you giggling!) on a small boat a “regular” style house robs too much room, but I AM with Chick in that I like houses a bit more than raised flush deck, as far as looks go. Usually. The raised flush deck does evoke that “commuter” look, though, yeah? And, on some boats it just looks “right”. We all know what I mean, eh? Nothing else matters, really, as long as you paint her orange. Peace, Robert
