Yessir that would be correct, maybe you could influence Preacher to attend with his new build :D

Hope to meet you there.

I'm gonna put it on my calendar. I'm thinking Preacher is just gonna show up based on his earlier post.

First I gotta finish the Honey Bee Stripper before I can bring it, second I've gotta do some paddling and fishin or I'm goning to be more crazy than I am.

My plans are for Rev TCF to pull my trailer of boats down and Mrs Preacher and I will bring the 5th wheel down so I can be snug in my bed at night :wink:

Iamdamoder, I dont know how good my varnishing skills are compared to some of the others on this forum. seems like when I do my own stuff things go ok, but when I take on projects for other people things get messed up :lol: I bought a paint gun the other day gonna try spraying the varnish on this time. We will see what happens.

On another note, the last few years we have bought season passes to fiesta texas. I'm not to crazy about theme parks. So this year we got season passed to Texas State Parks. 70 bucks is not to bad at all. I did not realize there are almost 100 state parks in Texas.

I just got my Jem Sabalo back in action after a classic turtle with yardsale n rough conditions last august... Left rods in my rocket launchers and both were partially ripped out when the kayak rolled by those big offshore rods. Now they've been reinforced with double the thickness of hull around their bases for the bolts.

I've also decided to join the graphite hull bottom crowd, because there must be a good reason everyone else does it, and I was also very pleased by the use of tinted epoxy as a paint when refinishing my skiff.

I am wondering what painting an entire kayak with tinted epoxy (using made for purpose epoxy tints for the upper) would do. It makes a wonderfully smooth surface.

Well this year so far has been a busy one, with river trips and messabouts. And only 2 weeks from our own gettogether here on Inks Lake.

My poor old boats are suffering from the abuse of literally thousands of road miles and quite a few river/lake trips. I try to keep telling myself that's why we build them :!:

Any way hope folks are still going to make Inks on May 12th. if I can help at all please yell.

I have no idea if we even have an official start time. We are going to leave here at 530 or so. We should be fishing by 730.

Neon14 would you consider helping me with a shuttle on Friday. CP to Hermanson should take about an hour. :idea:

Looks like more rain tonight then clearing.
I'd give Ron a wide berth, He's been known to carry hundreds of gallons of water in his boats. :shock:

I really enjoyed the day. Of course the quality of folks in attendance far exceeded quantity, but that is how this wood boat deal is. The young guns schooled us on the SUP's. It may have been painful to watch but I had a blast trying to paddle them as well. We had some first time sailors and allot of happy faces on folks trying out different boats. That is what it is all about. :)

Here are some pics. Hopefully someone got some good ones. :lol:

well I"m a total dufus didn't have my camera ! but luckily for me my compadre did,so when I get the down load I'll post some.

As predicted the stand up paddleboards were a big hit ( I even tried it and didn't fall off,amazing) and it was good to see folks who'd not sailed before trying there hand and doing really well. Sure enjoyed the company.

Well, it looks like we are going to have to go back to Inks lake sometime this summer.

In all the talking about boat building, race cars, motorcycles, and wine making......I did not try out the Trimaran!

Teaching my son to sail was the best thing I ever did as a parent (paid for his ASA lessons). Second best was buying a couple of different sail boats for him to grow in. I wish I had that strip built in that line up. He would have loved that. That is just plain COOL. I think letting the young guns school us is really what it is all about. As long as they know we play dirty and can take them anytime anywhere. :) :)
