Re: If you had to choose...
For starters, welcome from Fort Collins!
Your question was answered, the screws are surprisingly easy to get back out even if you are using them to hold ply on frame.
PM me and I'll give you a call if you want. I'm building here in Fort fun also. I would like to trade notes on where to buy epoxy wood and tools. I have some small wooden rowboats and will be launching my sons pirogue out at Douglas Lake the 22nd of this month.
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
