    Building a Two Paw 8 for Trailer Camping

    Don, you will love it! Good choice, I built a TwoPaws 9 14-15 years ago and it is still the grandkids boat in the pond. Ours was stored on the deck in a cradle and looks like a car top carrier on the boat. Mine is decidedly lo tech, I used 1/4 all thread rod an wingbolts to attach the front and back halves together but I could attach it together in the water. The new attachment system looks great, much better. I had (since removed) a piece of what looked like fire hose with foam pipe insulation as a full perimeter bumper. It went pretty good with a Seagull outboard although most progress with that motor was 8 feet at a time when I pulled the cord!

    STILL ON-->B&B Messabout 2018

    We had a good start, then becalmed about 10 miles to go. Joe can tell you more about being becalmed. Some areas of water that is kinda close from the top to the bottom, so difficult to go in a straight line. Porthsmouth is a cool place, hardy folks lived there!

    And a few from our angle. We had a great time at the Messabout, and the Portsmouth trip was great!

    Float bags are discontinued

    Jeff, any thoughts on selling plans for your flotation bags? Every boat needs a set, and the proper size is important.

    Awesome, a fleet of MK3s. Chick, you are invited too, as you are a MK3 alumnus.

    Hi Chick, that was part of the original plan, let’s see if Florence has made any big changes. I hope Portsmouth and Ocrocoke’s damage is minimal. On the 16 Messabout we anchored several days in the various bays and creeks on the Neuse River, Carol caught some beautiful speckled trout. I am sure a good time will be had by all!

    We might. We “planned” to go to Orakoke (probably not spelled right) after the Messabout, gona play it by ear cause of the storm.

    CS20mk3 for family camping?

    Back to anchoring a CS, it takes so little distance between the top of the water and the bottom of the bay, we just anchor anyplace out of the way or if the bugs aren’t bad put it on the beach. Very easy boat to handle. My wife can pack enough groceries on our boat for a week under the berths and the big compartment aft of bulkhead 1 and 2 for the sleeping bags and clothes. At the Messabout we will R&D (research and duplicate) the ice chest option!

    CS20mk3 for family camping?

    Hi, my wife and I have spent about 45-60 days on out CS20.3 since completion. It is a small boat, but that is it’s beauty. We have a larger boat with dingy etc, but our CS we jibe around and step on the beach, the worst we have done is wade in a foot of water. Dingy definitely not needed. We have a electrical ballast pump, we generally fill the ballast tank and never give it a thought till we reload on the trailer. We have had 6 people on the boat with some regularity, never noticed a problem when day sailing ( look on the B&B site, we had 5-6 aboard for that picture) We kinda rely on a fresh trout for dinner, 2 people for 3 weeks wasn’t a problem, never had more for overnights. On the gulf coast we are never more than a day sail to a spectacular restaurant, which is part of the fun!

    Core Sound 20 Mark III #3 "Jazz Hands"

    Hi guys, we “plan” to be there with Southern Express! We missed last year because of some minor work that went into overtime, but have every intention of getting there a few days early to enjoy the local sailing area. Hope to see everyone there!

    Yea, put some ballast water in, we have slept in a few rolly anchorages in the Mississippi Sound, never noticed the board making any noise. A full ballast tank and the boat is pretty darn stiff!
