Re: Doing More Messing About in Toledo

Case Turner

I have considered building another one of Dave's skin on frame boats. Unfortunately the ones that I am considering are all too big to fit in the trailer. The Piankatank River pram would fit, but I think its quite what I want.

I have plans for cabin boy and another Atkins pram ? floating around in my plan files somewhere. I may have to revisit those again. Itty Bitty could be a good option as it requires very little lofting and should be suitable for plywood construction.

I'm not opposed to using epoxy, however I'd like to avoid stitch and goo,

Bunches of good little boats from the Atkins:

We'll have to check with Bud about camping in the parking lot.
