I was originally going to dye the pine purple but that got too hard. . . .& thats the only reason I went for the pine. That boat is for my 16yo daughter & I was hoping the second boat would be lighter because I would make the mistakes learning on the first but it looks like being the heavier of the twoPTN wrote:Thanks PiratePete.
Weight is not a major issue with me with this design, since it's a trailer boat I can get away with a 20% difference. Might lose some top end speed and be a little slower on to plane, but everything in life is a trade-off. You would expect the higher density material to be stiffer and stronger but it's hard to get mechanical properties from wood suppliers.
Thanks Getting there on the second one. I havent posted as much on that one. . . .PTN wrote:Those wadefish look good. Glassing the outside looks daunting as a process but great when finished.
Im in Latrobe a bout 10Ks up river from where the boat comes in. There is a good bream fishery in the rivers down the east coast. I have a fly rod but never used it.PTN wrote:Heading over to Tassie in March for two weeks (honeymoon...!) with our camper van, will go down the east coast and back up the centre past the lakes. Bringing my fly rod which I haven't used in 20 years!
How can you go fishing on your honeymoon
