    Building a Two Paw 8 for Trailer Camping

    Sounds fun. Look forward to it and whatever boats we have about then 😊. Rick

    Building a Two Paw 8 for Trailer Camping

    Thanks for the offer Don. Nice collection of clamps :-). We're way east of I-95, but visit Grandson's in Asheville so may take you up on it this summer. Yes, I have a small kayak trailer that I'll modify for a couple of yaks and the Amanda, but would like a car top boat too, and wife and I can probably still stack two 35# sections. OR could use that loader you showed - have a plan for it. Want to go electric but waiting for prices of lithium to come down. Tks, Rick

    Building a Two Paw 8 for Trailer Camping

    I'll be following too. Like Chick, I'm always trying to get lighter as I get older and have thought a lot about a two-paw. Might sell my almost done Amanda in FL for the two-paw kit, or finish her and try her out first as a gator/bird chaser this winter. Thank for the thread and pictures. Rick

    Speeding up rigging and unrigging.

    Thanks Graham, I was just padding the crutch Alan built for my CS15, but I like yours with slots for the sprits and ability to keep them attached. Will send email for the .pdf. Rick

    Old Codger's Keowee Misadventure

    Great story Chick. Glad the damage wasn't too serious. Thanks, RickZ

    Booklet Charts

    Thanks for the info Don & Bob, Will be great when we're adventuring in FL too. Sound like it may be good to add some lat/long notes to some charts before binding/laminating. RickZ

    B&B Preps for Florence

    Glad to hear all ok, and hopefully shop/boats not badly damaged. Had about 4' + some wave action in our yard & 6' crawlspace east of Washington, no power till yesterday, and cable/inet today. Bottom of the #12 day mark was only about 18" from the surface. Water still very high. No structural damage but big mess like everyone. RickZ

    Sail Battens

    Just noticed my second batten (CS15) fits about 1/2" short allowing a curl too. Going to just add stitching to the front of the pocket to shorten it a bit & try for a better fit. Rick

    Hi, Becoming snowbirds. Winters near Cape Canaveral at Viera, FL summers NC. Found a nice batch of big gators 8-10's+ paddling at a county park lake & campground near Plant City. Probably be out your way this summer visiting Grandson's in Asheville. Keep sanding :-). Rick

    Chick's Micro Power Cruiser Project.

    Great to see you back building Chick and looking forward to seeing her evolve. Still finishing up the Amanda in FL for gator chasing and exploring. Hoping to go electric for quiet. Will be back in NC in April for summer. Watch those fingers. RickZ
