    I'm not a designer, but I have been working (with others) on creating a trailarable friendship/weekender design. It takes elements from the friendship sloop, the weekender and a Duck Trap Wherry. Here is a thread at the Wooden Boat Forum I started on this. http://www.woodenboat.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=2&order=desc&page=4 The design is in the phase where I'm working on final drawings. I'm slow about doing this and work on it in spurts. Eventually I will finsih the design. Chad
  3. That was what I thought I remebered. Seemed like you used to reach some scarey speeds on that thing. Chad
  4. I was just wondering about you the other day. Didn't you use to have some land sailer also? Chad
  5. Bud you gotta quit having these on drill weekends. I have drill that weekend. Sorry about not being able to make it. Chad
  6. I'm going to throw this up on the wife's radar screen and see what we can do. Chad
  7. For those that have watched the video series of making the canoe paddle, here is the final chapter. I will include the first four chapters. I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them. I learned a lot while making the paddle and I hope you do also. One thing that I hope you take away from this is not to be intimidate by new and challenging projects, and don't be afraid to put yourself out there. Chad
  8. Yeah that is about what I had in mind. I can go on the inside with a wider piece of 3/4" plywood to help spread the load. Chad
  9. I don't have the dimensions with me, but I will try and be descriptive enough. The 4/4 piece is a short plank that is tall enough to go down to the transom and be bolted on. It is about 5-1/2" wide and about 3' long or somewhere around there. It is not wide enough to fully catch the clamps on the transom mount of the motor. The 8/4 piece is about 9" long and about 5" deep. It is wide enough for the transom mount to fit nicely on and leave a little room on each side but not long enough to mount on the transom. Chad
  10. I don't plan on getting crazy with the mount. I have a couple of pieces of white oak one is 4/4 and the other is 8/4. The 4/4 piece is not wide enough and the 8/4 piece is not tall enough. In my head I"m thinking about making a "T" out of the 2 pieces. I'll need to plane the 8/4 piece down and mortise the back out for the 4/4 piece. Chad
  11. Just to update. I bought the Minn Kota Endura 50 from Sportsman's Warehouse for $229 and there is a $60 mail in rebate. This is a 12v motor with 50 lbs of thrust. I went ahead and picked up the waterproof plug. I haven't gotten a battery yet. I figured I could get a battery at a better price somewhere other than Sportsmans and besides I want to look at the gell batteries. Chad BTW I still have to make a moount for this. I have some white oak that I'm looking at using.
  12. Thank you. I"m glad that you enjoyed the video series on making the paddle. I've been on the fence about gas or electric. Our lakes are all man made also. I will probably go with electric on the weekender, for me it is a fair weather boat and the weather don't turn that quick here. For the Balboa however I will be going gas and probably closer to 10 hp. Chad
  13. Guess I've got the touch. Chad
  14. Do you think it needs 6 gauge? I'm planning on putting the battery forward of the cabin in that (I like to call it the anchor locker) and running the line back like you said on the port side. I will have to look for the waterproof plug like you mentioned. I will probably make the motor mount out of white oak. I like white oak for its strength and good looks and rot resitance. Chad
  15. Thanks. Now I just have to quit being a cheap b#$@!$# and go ahead and come off some money and get what is needed. ;D Chad
