And now you pay


Finally got around to getting some pay-backs on a piece of mahogany I've been holding a grudge with for quite a spell. Two winters ago (about this time of year) a particular rail decided it didn't want to be a part of my nice new drift boat. When I decided to "force" the issue it decided to push back.

Thanks for suggestion on chine caps Rick


Thanks much on chine cap suggestion.  Hoping you and some of members of this group could find some holes in this method-as I am sure there are.  Any suggestion for eliciting more comment?

 Do you know of another source of plans, like the ones in the Fletcher Book?  I love looking at the different lines of drift boat others have created.  Best, Doug
