    Is this Uncle John or a rip off?

    The boats on this site look identical to my UJ pirogue. Any one know if this site is Uncle John's or is someone just ripping off his design? http://pirogueplans.com/

    Just started some winter maintenance

    I didn't get all of the things I wanted to do during the winter but I did just finish painting the the outside. I had to do some repairs so the inside will have to be painted next. I used walmart porch paint in Mallard color then coated it with some interlux goldspar gloss. I think it turned...

    Quick finish question

    I just got through painting my pirogue I finished last year. I'm used the exterior porch paint but I could only get satin so I want to put a gloss coat of varnish, poly, etc. Should I wait 5-7 days after the last coat of paint for it to cure or is it ok to go ahead with the finish sooner...

    Just started some winter maintenance

    They actually have the power to put a penalty lien on my house. They aren't really bad it's just that I kind of juked them with the shed I built. It was supposed to have hardi-plank like my house but I used smart panel. By the time someone realized it, it was past the 60 day mark which means...

    Just started some winter maintenance

    I would have to do something really easy because I use it every day during the summer. I'm lucky enough to have a nice pond behind our house and I try to take full advantage of it! A lean-to would be ideal but I had a hard enough time getting my shed approved by the homeowner's association in...

    Just started some winter maintenance

    No, definitely not fasteners. The wood seems to be fine. I sanded most of the darkness away. I may opt to put some fiber glass on the rub rails to make sure moisture doesn't get in there again. I assume it's moisture that caused the dark spots. I have no way to store the boat inside and...

    Just started some winter maintenance

    After only one summer of sun my natural finish has become blotchy. I did apply uv protection varnish but I guess it wasn't enough. I'm doing a little sanding now and will be painting it dark green soon. Another problem I'm working on is the rub rails. I got quite a few places where the wood...

    A shorter UJ Pirogue

    12' foot might be ok. That would be about 4' less than the UJ. What you built is exactly like what I was thinking. Shorter but with some decks. Looks awesome.

    A shorter UJ Pirogue

    I just wanted to make sure it wasn't going to sink with my fat butt in it. That's why I wanted to bounce it off you guys. Thanks

    A shorter UJ Pirogue

    I was thinking about building another UJ pirogue. I want to build something shorter than my 15' 8" pirogue. One that will be easier to throw into the back of the truck without 10 minutes of tying down. I weigh about 225 lbs so how wide would I need to make the bottom if I did something in the...
