Re: Transom sealer?

I priced the aluminum and worried about the weight. Mentioned it to the wife, pretty sure she's still laughing. Since the wood is normally not under the water, I went with spar urethane on the first transom. One sheet of plywood got me enough pieces of wood to make three transoms so I might try some...

Transom sealer?

It's transom time again. Picking up some marine plywood this week to make a couple spares and can't decide on a sealer. I've used resin, oil based paint, wood sealer, and just bare wood. They all seem to last about the same. What to try this time? Just a thought....what if I soak my pieces of wood b...

Re: Dock Or No Dock

Launching a boat requires getting your feet wet. Every time I'm at the ramp I see someone take three times longer launching their boat than anyone else because they have "special feet". I keep waders for cold water and water shoes for warm water on my boat. Thirty seconds to change your shoes or ten...

Re: New Member

I was driving by a Sonic and though about your post. Must be a tray out there you can buy or modify like the ones they hang on a car window. Maybe something you can mount with a C clamp so it can be tossed under a seat when not being used. Or use the hardware for mounting a grill to the railing and ...

Re: Railing needed, build ideas?

I've been thinking of using 3" PVC tubing and golf netting instead of panels. Watched some You Tube videos about bending PVC and thought it was doable. Next winter I'll rig up some jigs to bend some pipes and see if I can come up with something better than the square shape of my aluminum railings.
