Critter, I bought the 12' boat in 1984 and had a 7.5hp engine and a 24# thrust trolling motor on the front..I used it in small lakes and ponds where a trailered boat could not get into..I caught 1000s of bass and speckled perch in that boat.. the boat I just sold was 23' with a 115hp Yamaha used mostly for bow fishing Tilapia.. I'm gonna buy a new 50# thrust for the 12' and look at getting a "nucanoe" or something similar for bass fishing or fishing the coastal flats..

Hey Robert, I was just giving you a hard time about the typo in your post. You had a 12 inch boat not a 12 foot. I meant absolutely no disrespect in any way. The best boat I ever had was a 12' jon boat I used for duck hunting flooded timber. Got it in places other hunters couldn't go.

Critter I didnt take any offence. I seem to be going back to my roots..I used to fish several times a week, the last few years it been about 4 times per year.. Raining here with lightning right now..We are having my Dads 80th birthday party later today..I rented a room at a local Restaurant, no cooking or dish washing for me today..

Roy, this is a grown up conversation, so be quiet. Lol
I hear ya on the lack of fishing. I used to fish with my father in law almost every weekend. But I havnt even been this year so far. Life has a way of keeping you so busy that you don't even have a life anymore!
Tell your father I said "happy birthday" !!!!

Didn't do anything in the shop today. Took some of the grandkids fishing. Turned out to be a fun tour of the "circles of life" [Smile]

No just throwing power bait to last year's stockers. It's only five minutes from the house and always abig deal with the kids. It's Arvada Reservoir. The city's water supply.

I didn't catch anything!

Square head steamer. In order to steam a half stave at a time I made this one. Insulated PVC pipe one meter long, worked like a charm, after half an hour the stave bent nicely.

Straightening out sideways bend, compensating for some spring back on this Yew stave cut in 2005.

cool!
I saw a neat vid a while back (someone may have posted it here), a ship builder was using long plastic "bags" almost like a meat vacuum packing bag for steaming.
