  1. Here is the unloading process. Then just roll it to the water like a wheelbarrow.
  2. Sometimes these dang things just don't quite seem to fit like they should. Here's my advice. DON'T force it! Get a BIGGER hammer!
  3. At least it's easier than adding to the length. (Don't ask me how I know that!)
  4. Here's my Tango 12 take apart boat all loaded up and ready to go camping.
  5. When I click on the posts in the BandB forum, all I get is this: Sorry, there is a problem Something went wrong. Please try again. Error code: EX1062
  6. I once converted to a tabernacle on an existing boat by cutting the mast and using the bottom part that projects through the deck to built the tabernacle around. The bottom part was left extending above the deck far enough to do this. That way, no changes had to be made to the deck other than securing the lower part in place.
  7. Keep the car in the garage???? May it never be! Besides, by now you should have been infected by the boat building bug.
  8. Oar length can be a confusing topic. Also has to do with height above water, height of gunnel above seat, type of boat, style of rowing even. Heck, just use a motor!
  9. Be sure to allow air circulation under the tarp. Those plastic tarps trap moisture badly!
  10. Ya musta missed the part about the big Merc 150 he's gonna hang on it.
  11. Old trick is to push screw into wax or soap before screwing into whatever you are joining. Epoxy won't stick then.
  12. Meant that I instal the keel (withpoxy) before poxy coating it rather than coating it first and then installing it. That was in reply to what Hirilonde said.
  13. Finally finished with my Tango 12 two part boat to carry with us when we pull our travel trailer. It seems like it took longer to finish the painting than to build the whole boat.
  14. Don't glass over the keels and stringers. Epoxy them well. Damage will happen either way, but much easier to repair them if they are not glassed over.
