Re: Anyone Fishing?

That sounds like one good fishing trip! Well except for the 113f part :help: Does it ever get to a nice human temperature, you know, something like 60f? And if so are there still fish to be caught?

Re: raising sole with tall cleats?

Without running all over this thread I too have thought about a boat with the flotation all up under the gunwells. It would mean some trade offs but it might be worth it.

Re: raising sole with tall cleats?

I am not sure what percentage of factory built boats under 20 foot will self bail but it is not very high I would think. But if you are building a custom boat it is a nice feature to have if possible.

Re: Nola OD18

Learning from those who have gone before you is the sign of a smart man :wink: One of the best things about this forum is folks showing things they did to make their build better and easier. And almost as important is folks showing their mistakes so others do not repeat them. You are doing a fine jo...

I did that with my dory 8 years ago and it seems to be working just fine. Also it saves a ton of time by not having to mess with a ton of cleats. If I build another boat I would do it the same way. Richard "AA" did his last build that way and seemed to be happy with his choice.
