Greeting from Upstate NY


Post by upstateNYer » Wed Sep 18, 2013 7:52 pm

Hello All,

I've been reading this forum non-stop for the last few weeks, and finally decided to join. I live out on the east coast, not much in the way of larger aluminium boats out here...too bad. I have been drooling over all the "Ali Porn" posted on this site. Planning to build a 21' cuddy fishing boat such as the Tuna 21 designed by Conrad Yachts in Vancouver

I am overwhelmed with the amount of information I am finding on this forum, and would just like to say thanks to all the posters who have taken the time to give advise and years worth of knowledge! I am also reading Boatbuilding With Aluminum by Stephen Pollard which I am finding very informative. The build is a few years away, but in the mean time I will be practicing my welding, and saving my pennies! You guys are great, and have inspired me. Thank You!

Welcome!! Great group of knowledgeable gents here to say the least :thumbsup: You are a few hours west of me. Fished the river for Striper's years ago and spent many hours standing in the salmon river years back :mrgreen:

Looks like you've chosen a boat to build with some very nice lines :thumbsup: Good luck and make sure to post pics :beer:

Welcome! There is a large body of gnosis reachable with the search function and pay close attention to the postings of kmorin, our resident naval engineer extraordinaire. I knew next to zero about boating when I joined, much less why alloy was the material of choice for those seeking low maintenance, extreme durability, and function following design. Enjoy!
I only do what the voices in the Tackle Box tell me to.

Hooked more salmon then I caught in the Oswego river(went to college there) haven't done any striper fishing yet, but spent a day watching YouTube vids of people hooking monsters! Maybe head down this spring and try my luck...

I have learned a lot already...and have read many of kmorin fact I printed out his intro to mig welding post...much respect!!
