Thanks Jeff, that's Brook. She's getting on in years(14+) but still doing very well. She was a rescue from Puerto Rico, we got her at about 8 weeks old. She's a mutts' mutt, little bit of everything in her.


There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

Wow Jeff, We have a rescue from Puerto Rico. He was an abused dog there and a local Florida rescue brought him over at about 1 year old. His name is Thor and he is nearly 14 himself!!! Crazy stuff!! Jeff

Well, I hate to comment on how much I like your workmanship on the drift boat with all this talk of aging four legged workshop supervisors. I have a 14+ helper as well so totally get what you’re both talking about.

That's awesome Jeff. Maybe they will meet when we come down in March/April, they may be long lost relatives!

I'm jealous, Alan. Brook won't come near the workshop, she was in the photo because I dry stuff near the woodstove in the family room, too cheap to get the basement warm enough!

I can tell by looking at her she's a purebred Curb Setter!

Appreciate it Eric, yours as well, quite impressive!

Not sure if you already have an idea for the sole but I used this trick to create a template for the floor of my driftboat: I rought-cut a piece of fiberboard that was within an inch or two all the way around and then taped posterboard 'cards all the way around to the edge, which gave me a super-easy way to get a very accurate template. occurred to me after that a few decks of cheap playing cards would have been easier than cutting up all the poster board.

I liked your use of the marker-on-the-level to mark the line, btw, I cheated and used a laser-level.

Nah that ain't cheating. I would've used mine but Between it and my big butt I figured it was gonna be a PITA. :lol:
