Denis, Stopped into Rona today ,boat looks great,maybe I'll win it, oops better rephrase that, my wife might win it, since she bought the ticket. I'd be really interested in seeing the glassing stage since I'm at that point with my 16 foot prospector and I've never done it before. Any idea when you fellows would be doing that
thanks Roger :applause

Denis, I would like to know if you are authorized to sell tickets for the raffle and how much they cost. If you don't sell tickets, where can I get some since I don't live anywhere close to the build site?

tickets

Post by Denis » Fri Mar 06, 2009 9:20 am

Glen selling you a ticket would be like hauling coal to Newcastle lol

:laughing

I'm not sure how an out of area person would buy a ticket but they are available at the museum and at the Rona Peterborough store.

Selling me a ticket wouldn't be the same as selling one to Glen. Sell him all the losers and sell me the winning ticket. :applause

cradled and scraped

Post by Denis » Tue Mar 10, 2009 5:17 pm

Took boat off the forms today and onto cradles. After about 2 hours we had the interior scraped using from 1 inch to 2 1/2 inch scrapers to remove glue lines, clean off epoxy which had leaked through the staple holes, and fair the hull in preparation for sanding.
