View Full Version : Introduction

Hi, everyone! Not sure if anyone had done this already, so I just made this thread for new guys like me to create an intro. Anyway, newbie here. I'm glad to have found this great online WoodenBoat discussions community. I'm hoping to learn more from the other members here. Whenever I'm taking a break from this particular interest, I'm usually found at home, feeding my Pomeranian with some treats and watching TV with my wife. And when we're not indoors, we would play catch in our backyard with our dog (though we had to secure one of those petsafe (http://www.petstreetmall.com/Petsafe/) Stay+Play wireless dog fence, just so he wouldn’t stray far from our yard. Our neighbor had a weak wooden partition, and we once had an argument when the poor fella ended up on his lawn). Such a simple, yet, happy life. Cheers, everyone!

So, StevenStentor, what's your relationship to wooden boats? Sail? Build? Dream?

Welcome Steve! You will find a wealth of information in:
1 The building section
2 The plans and design section
3 Tools and Materials section

Here in the Bilge you will find....other stuff.

Great to have ya here!

Think of the Bilge as a bit like a winter time coffee break around the boat yard wood stove with people of pungent personality.

Welcome, and pay attention to what paulf said, it can be stinky down here but there is treasure floating on the muck too.

There is a pint of Cognac in the top of that tool box over there that we swiped from the pub, have at it.
