Pheasant

Went out Sat AM with my son and our pup. Was a bit hesitant on how she would react in the field pheasant hunting. In the water retrieving ducks is one thing but in a field with 10 other dogs and a bunch of hunters made me a bit anxious. We have not put an e-collar on her yet. All the commands have b...

Youth Deer Hunt Sat 10/3

Sat was a mess. Northeast winds blowing hard, cold drizzle just one of those miserable hunting days. As we walk the field to our stand we jump a fairly large deer from it's bed. We cross the brook and head for our stand. Nothing looks familiar. It's dark and there are leaves on the trees. We have fo...

Waterfowl

Last Sat was youth waterfowl season. We purchased our chocolate lab "Luna" back in May and have been working with her since getting her ready for duck, dove, and pheasant season. Sat was our first real hunt with her. Although we didn't see the number of ducks flying yet as we have in years past, my ...

Re: Another old noob

Re: Electrolysis on Pacific Skiff 22 DV

More questions than answers. Will corrosion-x attach it self to aluminum if wet? What if you can't get the corrosion-x into all the areas like the inside top of the hull stiffener? If not you will have a false sense of protection. I have read corrosion-x does not dry and remains sticky and need to ...

Re: White Metal Welding 18' RI Builder

Great looking boats. The 14.5 skiff looks pretty stout. Starting to see more alloy in the NE these days. I was down on the Cape last weekend and stopped by a local welding shop to check out a flat bottom skiff being built. It's really got my gears turning. starting to see more in the salt ponds in ...

Re: White Metal Welding 18' RI Builder

Kevin,

He just started building boats.

Here is his link: https://www.facebook.com/pages/White-Me ... 2433868979

Did a lot of welding on my buddies boat that he built. He built this boat for a guy over in Narragansett Bay

Looks like it serves it purpose quite well

Had to replace my GPS antenna. Hit the crapper after 9 years or use. The cable seal connection I had was all dry rotted and the plastic had cracked.
