Re: Hiking seats for Sailing Canoe

Opie8man, I don't really have comments on your hiking seats, but I am curious as to your sailing canoe design. Any details? I had designed a sailing rig for my canoe but it got burried in numerous other life activities and projects. I have yet to build the rig. Maybe soon. If you are looking for ano...

I will measure my kayak soon. Today we hit 23C and it looks like the river might break up soon.

Enjoy the skiing - my last ski was this week and with the warm weather and rain this week, the base is nearly gone :crying

Re: Varnish recommendation

What the other guys said... I use Epifanes and nothing else. There might be others out there but the others which I have tried have left me disappointed... You can get Epifanes in in a clear gloss as well as a satin (use for final coat(s) of hull interior). I buy mine from http://www.thechandleryonl...

Re: Lofted the Wee Lassie II

I agree with Glen, you might find the cabinet scraper is what you need. I learned how to use and sharpen cabinet scrapers for doing my hulls and I consider it one of the tools of choice.

Have you got any recent pics of your Wee Lassie II?
