I used Interlux Brightsides in Blu-Glo white. I'm very happy with the color and in the sun you almost need sunglasses to look at it.

Any plans for oars? They'll go good with a trolled lure when the breeze sags.


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

Oars were considered when I was building it but I never got around to putting them in. I think it might still be a good idea though, especially since when I've been out on the local lake it seems like the bass follow the boat. I wish they acted the same with my skiff when I'm actually trying to catch fish.

I'm sure that once they see a rod in the boat they'll go elsewhere, seems to be how it works for me. :D
