    Clemens vs renzetti rod lathe

    I’ve been happy with my renzetti lathe. I changed out o rings once on the support wheels and burnt out two motors. The motors were my fault, too lazy to go out to the garage and use my wood lathe on hypalon. I’ve used it hard. It’s been worth it

    need help with LS Supreme "light stable" (new user)

    Room temp is a factor too. If your working in an Un heated garage stuff will take longer to kick. In run a space heater in my room and get it up to 75 ish. Epoxy flows and kicks well at that temp. Light formulas always seem to take longer. If I use light I'll top coat with high build.

    If your present boat is a financial burden a larger boat is going to bend you over x10.

    Anyone Fish A Phenix PSW-809H or PSW-809XHJ???

    I take a cal star 6480 with JX for yellows, bait Yoyo surface. For calicos I use a psw809h with a toro 60.....,because the yellows can and will bite swimbaits. Flying out of Ensenada we were limited to two rods 8' or less.

    Remind me never to fish there: crap

    It's a small narrow inlet to the intra coastal waterway. Small boats only. Pretty good current runs on tide changes. Game fish, snook redfish, cruise the inlet for looking baitfish. Sheep head and such would hang around the pier pilings. Most folk were fishing out to the center for the gamefish...

    One other thing. Become farmiliar with the lien laws. Not complicated but good to know. If you pay on time not an issue. If your subs don't pay for materials it can come back to bite you. Suppliers can lien you. Get releases. Get proof of insurance, license and bond. Look the subs up on your...

    alaska 1st time

    I throw in a vote for Kodiak too. Not only do you have halibut you also, depending on your timing, can get several species of salmon. King, silver, pinks. The town is nice. Air transportation from ANC is seamless. If you rent a car you can access several spots for salmon or atv it to a river...
