  • Hi Harry, Not sure - looking for something for dad, who's getting up in his eighties. He needs something simple, stable, that he can step *down* into. He's got a Hurricane Fundeck with a 250 and about 120 gallons of gas that he never goes more than half throttle and bangs into every dock on the lake. The kids don't ski anymore - that was a comical on-going gag - the first 67...

  • I ordered Workskiff plans from Payson last month. Superb. Pay your way - Paypal, credit card, mail - I used Paypal and got an immediate acknowledgement, receipt, and "thank you" email. Plans shipped the next day (inventory?!?!) - clean copies in perfect condition. My plans even contained a hand-written "thank you and good luck" note. Seemed altogether happy to have my order...

  • The Bolger group is in fact all inclusive for boating and boatbuilding - especially Bolger and Bolger-inspired. Any "on-topic" within that range is fair game. The goal is to build more boats and promote and propagate PCB's and SA's boats, plans, and ideas or even extrapolations. Here's the group home page at http://groups.yahoo.com/group }Description }Discussing and building Philip...

  • Cored boat hulls and decks get wet all the time, even when built to highest possible standard. TPI invented SCRIMP infusion and we've all seen plenty or Jboats, Freedoms, and other high-end, "scientifically" constructed cores fail. Of course, epoxy accepts water slower than vinylester, which accepts water slower than polyester, and many failures can be attributed to improperly made...

  • I don't like it, but it's more of a material complaint. It doesn't matter if you build from the inside out, or the outside in - your goal should be light weight skins, both stressed and well bonded. If you build a boat with sufficient (stand-alone) interior skin strength, it doesn't make sense to add adhesive, foam and a heavy second skin - you would be smarter and lighter to...

  • An internal combustion engine is only about 18-20% efficient to begin with, so most of your gasoline or diesel goes up in smoke (heat). But, both means of mechanical conversion start with an engine. At the far end of the comparative transmission process is a prop - efficiency of about 75% (probably best case). So, you start off at about 14% (.18x.75). Gear trains are pretty...

  • Are any among our number UK narrowboaters or happen to know about canal boating in England? I'm itching to try it, and would like to hear about the best times, routes, and boats or companies to plan a first trip. Also, is there a secondary "market" to hire private boats - perhaps find something a little cleaner and neater than the ordinary rentals? Thanks - Gregg
