Re: carbon paper question

Glen L used to sell big sheets of carbon paper but I couldn't find it on the website.

Larger copy shops can mirror image copy. Then use a pin to pick holes in the wood to reproduce the pattern following the lines and skip the transfer paper. I did that for the Torpedo.

Re: Registering a Home Built Boat by State / Country

In Wisconsin you can go to the DNR Office in Waukesha to register your boat and get a HIN for it. You will need to supply copies of receipts for materials purchased and pay any sales tax due from out of state purchases where no sales tax was paid. Also, some photos of construction are helpful.

Re: Picklefork pre-cut kit

Very sad that you can't finish the dream but Very gracious of you to give that dream to someone else. I'm sure it will find its way to a good home and maybe they will share their dream with you.

Re: Facebook Jail

It would be nice if there could be another outlet for friendly interaction but it seems some are hell bent on spreading hate and trash and it would soon be another Facebook.

Re: TNT and potential to porpoise

Yes, the typical frame is made of solid wood using lap or butt joints with plywood gussets and floor timbers. Plywood does not hold screws well when screwed in between the laminations. Laminations tend to split apart resulting in poor holding power of the screws.

Re: Facebook Jail

I quit Facebook last fall. Too political and no longer wanted to support their agenda. I do miss the good things and friends. Just have to reach out in better ways.

Re: TNT and potential to porpoise

The TNT is a smaller boat and tends to appear bow high at low or no speeds. Motor trim, balance, and the addition of trim tabs in some form will alleviate any tendencies to porpoise at higher speeds. Many TNTs have been built and are being enjoyed. Other builders will chime in.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all you Dad's on the Forum. Take your kids out for a ride. In a boat you built together, preferably. Treated my hubby, Rich, to a Tomahawk Ribeye for dinner today. Took about an hour on the grill using indirect grilling and reverse sear at the end. Yummy. Good to the bone. Robe...

Re: new the forum and first time boat builder

The State DNR does it in Wisconsin. I know several builders are in Michigan and must have done that. Hopefully they will chime in.

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

I wonder if they are producing Glenwood stuff or is Glenwood producing it and they are the outlet? Good to see some items are still available.
