Spawnchanger

7" inches long, built on a length of spawn sack and a snelled hook. Tungsten beads on the leader can add weight.

This is essentially a Game Changer tied around spawn sack netting and a snelled hook--instead of stainless steel wire. Carefully, sparsely-placed micro dabs of fabric cement in a few strategic places make it all work--or stay together.

Styrofoam skills

Will I live long enough to build everything? I doubt it. But still. I might be able to work the wider, trolling-motorized SUP board in.

This is a guy making a surf board but the skills and the tools would be much the same.

Two days later

up-up-deck-donut.jpg I'll probably have to carve into at least one of those bulkheads when making room for passenger's feet. I'll keep those foot wells a good 12" inches off the floor, so they'll be easier to drain.

Deck Donut

up-up-ddonut.jpg The deck donut--now bottom side up, getting a bit of fiberglass reinforcement. The rest of the deck will hinge up and down onto this perimeter, over the seat wells and over a 2" inch thick foam gasket.

Bill fish

That's my buddy Bill yesterday, catching a small cutthroat on a home made bamboo fly rod. Bill gets $2500 each for his rods and his orders are a year out right now. This one's 5wt. Damn nice rod. It almost casts itself, and you can reach out to 60' feet if you want. No problem. up-billfish.jpg Older
