Mark,

Buying a new vehicle is definitely a new process. I had to put a deposit down to hold the truck. The deposit was refundable if I decided not to buy the truck. 

Actually it was nice not having to haggle and do all the typical sales stuff. 

I’m all set for years to come now!

If so let us know, I have a friend who's looking. He's 29, and recently got his contractors license. 

I'm assuming you are addressing this query to me about my Tacoma.

When I started looking for a brand new Tacoma, minimally equipped, I found that they were few and far between.  Then the chip shortage hit and it's bye-bye to my quest.  And of course, the used truck prices went through the roof also.  

So, unless someone points me to a good deal, I will wait it out.  I know I can safely launch the Tolman with my truck at the moorage where I've stored it in a lot since buying it last year. I've towed it to the Scappoose area as a test, but that's a fairly level stretch of road.  Getting it to Toledo or Cathlamet would entail large hills.  I figure I can use it in the Portland area, and even take it by water to Cathlamet.  And I can take my lighter Moonlit Turtle to Toledo, something I've done many times.

Even if I did find a truck, I'm afraid my brother has been hounding me to sell it to him at a "family" discount.  :-)   So I won't be able to help out your friend, sorry.

Thursday Coots Lunch at Fern Ridge

 

1:00 at Richardson Park, somewhere near the docks. I've got an extra parking pass, if you need one. It's supposed to be a nice day, warm but not hot. :o)

Re: Looking For Boat Trailer

Randy Torgerson
 


Myles,


I am considering renting a trailer if another solution does not present itself.  In addition to the great trailer and Tacoma V6 shortage there are also the great helm seat and outboard motor shortage.  I ordered the helm seats several months ago and they may arrive later this month or early next.  I am paying full price for them but I don’t have to pay until they ship.  I have been told that outboard dealers are asking for 50% deposits and prices above list for the motors.  The Suzuki 90 that I want for the main motor has a 5 month wait time which means I won’t get it this season; I have decided to wait before ordering it.  I am going to put my 9.9 kicker on the Tolman for launching and retrieval but I would not like to take the Tolman to Cathlamet only using the kicker.  


The Tolman won’t be finished by August but I am hoping that I have completed enough that at least I can have some fun with it this summer.

Re: SOmething Else Interesting out at Pat and Kay's Place

 

That's a half-model of a Chesapeake Bay skipjack. Low chine, cross-planked bottom, a big chunk of carved wood for the forefoot. A good teaching tool for showing how they're built -- if you can get it into the classroom. ;o)

Pat's boat is a high-chined "northern skipjack" that would have had a longitudinally planked bottom if it hadn't been planked with plywood. Let's hope it looks better than that Chesapeake skipjack when the tarps come off. <g>

spare V-6 truck?

Mark Neuhaus
 

Hi group,

While you folks are looking for a trailer for Randy's Tolman, how about keeping an eye open for a dirt cheap, only driven to church on Sundays type of truck with a V-6 engine so I can feel safer towing my Tolman.  My boat/trailer weighs in at 2700 lbs dry and empty and I suspect that by the time it's loaded for the road, it will be pushing my Tacoma's (4 cyl) 3500 lb towing weight limit.  I know there are folks who ignore the tow rating of their vehicle, but I'm not one of them. I'd feel safer with a heavier and stronger vehicle.

Thanks,
Mark

I may have been there the last time it was unwrapped, and it wasn't 'toast' at that point. If I remember correctly, it's a stout beastie, and would require more than a Subaru Outback to tow. If I'm remembering correctly


SOmething Else Interesting out at Pat and Kay's Place

 

Pat picked up an unfinished V-bottom "northern skipjack" hull years ago. A very interesting boat; a V-bottom version of the New York sloops that evolved into the infamous sandbagger racers. In later years many boats like this were converted to power, and worked well as relatively low-powered workboats. (I think the image of Sucher's sail plan was distorted, I think it should have proportions closer to Chapelle's drawing):

http://www.coots.org/Misc/PatsSkipjack/PatsSkipjack.pdf

Pat's skipjack was safely stored under a tarp shelter until a snowstorm several years ago destroyed it. Pat tried to keep the boat dry under tarps, but as his health deteriorated he couldn't keep up. <sigh> Kay hasn't uncovered the boat yet to see what condition it's in. This could either be an interesting, big project for someone looking for an unusual and useful boat, or a heavy-duty trailer with a pile of rotten wood on it. The hull was built to the plans in Harry V. Sucher's book, Simplified Boatbuilding: the V-Bottom Boat, and is plywood-planked. There's also a centerboard and a rudder. It's a Big 20-footer, and would probably be a lot of fun to sail with a bunch of Coots aboard. It could also be made into a nice inboard motorboat. At any rate, it's gotta go sometime soon so Kay can sell the property.

Re: Looking For Boat Trailer

I once rented a trailer from Fairview Marine in order to launch The Reach of Tide...if all you need is to get the boat launched near Portland, then cruise to Cathlamet and back, maybe something like that could work.

Kay said she has some trailers Pat collected while trying to find the "perfect" trailer for their PK-20. There might be something you can use out there.

Re: Looking For Boat Trailer

Between work at work, work at home fixing up the house to sell, researching properties for a hopeful 'family compound' out East of town, and general age-related slowness... I've been able to do very little with my own boats. But, yes, the PK20 is coming home soon - so K and family will have the covered area outside the shop to work in while they dismantle the shop in prep for the sale of her property.

It was a fun messabout. And the boys are looking forward to doing more.
