    I Like This Boat Because....................

    This modified JEM Crawdad is probably my overall favorite. Maybe it’s just the most versatile. very stable, plenty of cockpit room, easy to haul because the square stern fits in the truck, and weighs about 30 lbs. The numerous angles may make the wood strip/fiberglass hull stronger.

    Pictures Disappear

    :)Thanks for the quick responses. I have been living in the past and assuming I had to resize, probably the cause of my problem. Robin you answered my question fine, Google didn't! maybe I didn't ask google the right question. Thanks for your help!

    Bayou Dorcheat Pirogue # 2

    JD, thanks for posting It's real interesting to be able to adapt other people's techniques to our own boats. I had similar Tumble home problems with that ugly duckling boat. What is the approximate angle of the tumblehome to the sides in this boat? Thanks to you and Joey for helping me get out...

    Don’t know what happened to the pictures of the failed (?) varnish, but disappearing pics are for another thread. So a year later the peeling varnish was sanded off, down to the epoxy. I used 80 grit and a random orbital for most of it. It took a lot of care to not go through the epoxy, and...

    Child’s pirogue

    I agree with it might be better to build a simple plywood glue and screw boat first. The chine logs, ribs, outwhaie, etc could be built from your lumber. That would give both of you "boat experience" just my 2 cents. I'm sure you could manage a plank build. Simple might be a better first time...

    Child’s pirogue

Over the years I’ve built numerous pirogues with youngsters in youth groups and then with my own kids and Grandkids, You really can’t go wrong, from the kids viewpoint it’s always good. We stuck with Uncle...
