  1. I'm lookin' forward to "riding along" with y'all. Take lots of pictures. By the way---"Good lord willin' and the crick don't rise" actually refers to threats of the Creek Indians rising up in war back in the late 1700s.
  2. Carlita need a nice big 25hp Tohatsu for when the wind stops!
  3. What's the latest on Carlita's great adventure? Departure date?
  4. Here ya talking but no video.
  5. Where in Ga. are you? What is your price?
  6. I LOVE my DeWalt sander. I use it with the dust bag attached and it provides all the wood flour I need to thicken resin to make putty for glue and fillets.
  7. Welcome back Jay! Lookin' GREAT! Shocking amount of wiring. (Pun intended.)
  8. "I also but a sign on the trailer winch to 'Close the Bailer!' before launching. Doh! I'd thought it would be self teaching, but I guess I'm a slow learner. " YES! That's one you don't wanna learn the hard way!
  9. I don't do a boot stripe on a small power boat because the waterline changes so much with different loads and different speeds. Maybe a trim line somewhere on the side of the boat just for decoration.
  10. These Shinto rasps are GREAT! https://www.amazon.com/Saw-File-S/dp/B001AX0X12/ref=sr_1_4?crid=3QMZNYP85WEM&dchild=1&keywords=japanese+file+rasp&qid=1616158894&sprefix=japanese+file%2Caps%2C183&sr=8-4
  11. Canoeists, sailors, stink-potters, we ALL have this same problem. As the quote says: "One can never have too many boats." The red looks GREAT! But, too bad it's so hard to see. (Little joke)
