  1. I used to use a Merc Thruster electric on a Skipper 20. It had enough power unless it was too windy or rough. I mainly had it to get in and out of where the boat was in a slip down a long narrow channel.
  2. You are NOT wasting your time. You are an engineer and do the BEST way. I'm an ADD kid and do the EASIEST way.
  3. I'm sure I'm gonna get fussed at about this, but... I've built many boats over the years including a princess 22 Sharpy, Core Sound 20, and Outer Banks 20 and butt joined all of them with no problems. I guess I'm just lazy, but (sorry about the pun), I'm perfectly happy doing it. I've tried scarfing and it is just to much work for a lazy person. (And I do have ADD.)
  4. I had one of those dang noisy, smokey, oil-slicky, cranky, hard to start things way back on my first little pocket yacht. NEVER again! I love Mr. Zuki too much to ever have any other.
  5. Don't listen to Don!!! I'm NOT putting a big ol' Merc on it. I don't even HAVE a big Merc! ----but been looking at an old KG9H with stacks and quickie unit converted to burn alky on an antique boat site! But for now---a 30# thrust trolling motor will hafta do! Be sure to come see me when ya get back to NC. We'll go to the lake.
  6. ...and some recorded sound effects!
  7. Oyster, I was referring to Don's comment---"...an outstanding figurehead on Chick’s mini-boat." when I replied ---"HEY! Ya wanna get me a divorce!" By-the-way, this is the mini-boat he's talking about. I'm building a couple of them for myself and Miss Debbie. They're 8 feet long.
  8. HEY! Ya wanna get me a divorce!
  9. Doggone if I know what I was thinking. I was young and kinda dumb back then.
  10. I think I was trying to make lighter red when I built the ping dinghy.
  11. I know. I was just explaining it to Hirilonde.
  12. I was making a funny about the "masthead floats" that the girl has.
  13. I haven't seen that one. Is it on the mast floats thread?
