    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...

  1. Irma worries . . .

    Glad to hear, Paul. Peace, Robert
  2. Irma worries . . .

    My best wishes to you all. Our family in Texas lost their homes to flood water. Peace, Robert
  3. CS-17, Mk-3 for sale

    Rest assured, Paul, when I finally get over that side, we gone have a big party. I think it would be great to be able to hear us all laugh at each other's dumb jokes. Let's see what this storm season does, and plan a get together as soon as safe and feasible. Time keeps ticking, and excuses are easy to make. Peace, Robert
  4. Launch of FreeB

    The FreeB is a perfect boat. I love mine. I have honestly never paddled a nicer short boat. Thanks again, Jeff. Peace, Robert
  5. CS-17, Mk-3 for sale

    Oh, man. Would I had the loot, Chick. I'd love to have her if only to think of you when we unpacked the sammiches from the cooler... Plus, that'd be a real reason to finally drag my Sorry butt out there to hang with y'all. Dang, but I'd love to spend a couple campfires with you lot. Peace, Robert
  6. Motor Canoe project

    How do I what, now? Hehe. Like PAR said. The spots can be touched up, depending on the severity in the ways he mentioned. Generally, I just hit the fresh scratches with a little paper and some more paint. It always shows, but, oh well. I try to put a fresh once over coat on at the end of every "season" for a few seasons,, then strip it back to glass (or primer) and start again. Peace, Robert

    Because you are the coolest guy ever... Peace, Robert
  8. Action Tiger builds sailboat. With epoxy!

    Don, Maybe. Maybe maybe. I hurt my foot pretty badly, which set everything in my life even further back this year. I'm just calling 2017 do over. Geez, it's more than half over, anyhow. Just now, I'm trying to get this dang boat done and wet. Every time I turn around lately it's some other new thing. Just now it's the trailer mods and fitting. Baby steps. Of course, is also been super busy this year with actual work and such, which is awesome. I may be able to swing a trip out to the Mess, but I'm still 50/50, best odds. However, next year already has some East Cost time in the budget, and all y'all are on the list, for sure! The whole reason, really, is wood boat friends. Peace, Robert
  9. Motor Canoe project

    This post, especially the bit about the proper way to paddle a canoe solo, made me love you even more than I did before, Chick, buddy. You are an exemplary small boat messer. Peace, Robert
  10. FreeB 12 CNC build, now in the water!

    I would not mess with that design at all. It is one of the nicest paddling little boats ever. I can't thank you enough, Jeff, for those plans. I wish I could still paddle like I used to, but I still take freeb out. Peace, Robert
  11. Action Tiger builds sailboat. With epoxy!

    Dang, thanks Don. I have been busy, busy, busy. Whew! Daughter is softball mania right now, and I've had loads of real work to do, which is nice, but annoying. But, I've been picking away at the oars. They are SUPER close. I keep weighing and scraping and fussing. The spar material is picked through, marked, and ready to cut and scarf. Most importantly, we are 92% ready for The Flip. Some more trailer mods (just putting boat supports in the right place) and we are ready for the permanent flip. It will be all muscles. She's still pretty light. Peace, Robert
  12. Texas 200

    I know. Dumb, huh? Really, though, unless it's a very, very, very special case, or someone has OBSCENE amounts of money to spend, I won't build another strip/glass canoe. Now, a strip PLANKED sailboat? Hmmm. Maybe.;) Just now I'm playing full sized garop Tetris trying to get the big dumb creamsicle turned over so I can deck her. Peace, Robert
  13. Texas 200

    Haha. I had. That's why you never say never. The real sick part? The rowboat is sheathed on the outside, and I did all the glassing alone, even. I've regained all my comfort and skills with the materials. Still. I ain't making no more canoes, I promise. I may make some more kayaks, but I can't paddle them very much anymore. Peace, Robert
  14. Texas 200

    That is a Michalak Robote the kids and I built for them. The best part is it took 8 days from panels to boat. Peace, Robert
  15. Action Tiger builds sailboat. With epoxy!

    The flip onto the trailer is imminent. I hope to have it done this week. Then, the inside and deck can be finished off! Yea! Peace, Robert
