    Oldsparkeys , Bayou Skiff test run.

    christmas gifts

    The picture didnt do the birds eye maple justice. Once I finished them with boiled linseed oil and then super glue and final polish, it had a 3d look to it with the birds eye.

    Saturday afternoon action

    After getting off work saturday afternoon, I put the boat in the water to see if I could catch a few trout or reds. I couldn't get either one to bite but the next best thing was very hungry and cooperative. Whiting. I was able to put 12 in the boat before I ran out of sunlight. Wish I could...

    Saturday afternoon on the water

    I usually can't catch enough for my son and myself when I go. He can tear through a bunch of crabs when we catch some. My better half was the receipiant of the the speck for dinner that night. Now I just need to catch a few more of those so I can have some as well!!!!

    Saturday afternoon on the water

    Yesterday after work, the weather was cooperating around here except for some wind, I decided to go pick up the crab trap I had set earlier in the week. Got on the water about 3:30pm at dead low tide. Paddled to where I had dropped my trap and low and behold the bounty of the sea, or at least...

    New build - first build

    Finally received my order of resin so I can continue on my 2nd boat for my son. Main thing I was able to accomplish the past couple of nights was to put a final coat on the outside and to start installing inner rails. One side is complete and just have 2 shorter ones to install on the other...

    How Much Did Your UJ Cost?

    When I started the building process, I had some outdated resin and hardner I had picked up at work. I probably had that in the garage for a couple of years after I had got it from work when it was going to be thrown away because of its use by date. It seems to have worked as well as a new can...
