  1. Congrats on getting into the poxy. It can be a "whole body experience", so a few hairs is only a start.
  2. I like to make the "sockets" with a piece of PVC tubing set into a wooden block. The tubing needs to be drilled out slightly for a good fit with the horn.
  3. You'll be amazed at how fast you'll pick up speed mixing and filleting as you progress in your build.
  4. I always make my tillers pivoting. And i make them curved just because I like them that way. As for length, you need to be able to keep your wait forward in the boat.
  5. You can always trust me to tell the truth, the half truth, or nothing like the truth in these matters.
  6. As the good folks at Morgan Yacht shop used to say back in my young days. "Don't force it---get a bigger hammer!"
  7. Lookin' forward to following you. I like the thought you are putting into the name.
  8. The tabs work really well to keep you from sliding around on the seat when doing rolls and other stunts. After awhile,our body adjusts and molds itself over them.
  9. Can you past pictures? Lowest price for complete boat, sails, trailer? Where is the rotten area? Other details?
  10. I'm glad to see that Summer Breeze has someone to love and enjoy her. I sure do miss her! But I know she loves being down in sunny, warm Florida with y'all!
  11. Don, at least ya shouldn't have to worry about those long slithery things that love to snuggle up with you down in Florida where I came from.
  12. If you are in Don's area, I'm just up the road with Old Codger.
  13. Tempted, but mainly just curious. I'm in the Carolina mountains bout 7 hours away.
