    now to find a place to store it till I can get to her





    now to do a little raised panel and glass around the pilot house and extend the trunk cabin as well as run some ducting back there from the heater

    that and fix a few planks and stringers

    does anyone know why they dont seem to make silly bronze screws with Philips heads
    seems kinda cheesy they even offer these slotted

    its the end of one road and the beginning of another. Am hoping I can augment my income maybe doing private tours of the ketchikan area or water taxying or something

    Congratulations Boston, bloody high time too. 380 posts and 26 forum pages later. Good grief.

    I like your boat. It looks neat and the woodwork and finishing looks very classy.

    What's the next decision and how many pages for that :D

    Use silly bronze with robertson heads!

    Order them through a Canadian distributor as you're not likely to find them in your country. Something about sour grapes because we invented them...

    Congratulations on your boat purchase. You must be very happy.

    I am so happy for you
    one of the websites had a lot of pics of her inside and out
    I saw them all and I love the project, love the way the back seat folds away to make the entry aft, and the "traditional" galley :D

    oh well - beautifull
    god bless and buckets of fun

    They are used all the time here for projects. We prefer to call them "square drives" to by-pass giving credit to the Pouti... er, Canadians. (Actually, Robertson was way ahead of his time. He also wrote The Gold Standard, a book advocating gold-backed money. Interestingly, I checked out the Robertson site and his screws appear to be made in China and I couldn't find bronze). Bos, you will have no problem finding them once you get to the coast. Try Tacoma Screw Products, http://www.tacomascrew.com/locations ,for any screw that exists. Order by phone... in mail or Fed-Ex same day.

    I see Richard posted some sources - I have worked with Jamestown with good results.
    McFeely's says they are the "square drive experts". I'd try 'em.

    So does the silver tea set come with the boat?
