"good looking boat. I have bought a few trailers in the east. (I am in PA). I called clacka and hyde when they were heading to ship boats to the Delaware river or the big Show in NJ. They stuck my trailers on their truck and I met…"
Happy New Year! I'll second the desire for plans for the your Pram 2.0. We traded emails early last year and you recommended a bigger boat for what I described to you. I've been scrounging up materials, finishing projects and setting up a shop space just in time for winter!
Dave nice work on your boats, you are quite skilled. I had a question for you, I found about a 10 inch plane and a old old block plane in my basement. Will the 10 inch plane work to make my scarf joints for my side and bottom panels(56")? Or do i need to buy a 22 inch plane? If I use my 10 inch plane , it was my Great Grandfathers and hasn't been sharpener/used since he used them . I have very limited knowledge or experience with planes. I remember you mentioning there was an art to sharpening planes? Any Help is appreciated. I love the barbies in the model you built. I have two daughters myself , who are 9 and 11 years old. They will get a kick out of those pictures for sure!
Dave, this is Rick Newman from Spokane. We have never spoken, but I have folowed your boats progress both on here and at Happy Trout Chronicles. Neat boat and great job as a father sharing your activities with your kids! I admire your accomplishments.
I know that you follow events here quite closely and wanted to see more pictures of the Wooden Boat Festival. I took quite a few and have three files of pictures that I sent to both Randy and Greg Hatten. The total file size is 356 Mb so it overwhelms most mailing methods. I use a service called Pando that is free and works relatively well. If you would like me to send you the pictures I would be happy to.
I have pictures from the Boat Parade, pictures of the overall boats and where appropriate pictures of boat construction details. Lastly I had pictures of "Boat People" and the overall event.
Anyway if you are interested let me know an email address and I wil send them.
Hey - Happy Trout... Great "post" - boat progress is coming right along!! Wish you were able to make it out here for the wooden boat weekend... it's right up your alley - you'd have a great time!!
Keep up the good work...
