table (second time)

Here are a couple of photos of the table with the stove setting in the access hole. You can either screw on a bottle or the hose from the tree.

I have made a 4 rafting pads with PVC from a truck tarp maker and valves off of Amazon. 26 inches wide, 3 inches thick, and about 6'8" long. Cost per pad was 70 dollars with most of that cost going to the foam (who knew nice foam cost 50 dollars). I went with white for heat control and am really happy with the color. During the process, I found out that having a nice heat gun and some jigs to hold things makes a huge difference (I had neither), so I ended up gluing them rather than welding. So far, they are holding up great.

Here's a link to the thread I made on it while figuring things out.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Shoeless Musings: Oars

This guy is a very good friend of mine. He built his own dory as well. We have a +100 mile Yellowstone trip coming up next week. Point being that these oars are river proven.

Skip the sleeves and do a rope wrap. He's got that on his blog as well. I just used his serving mallet to wrap my new Cataracts before my Ruby Horsethief trip last month. Worked like a charm.

I've got a monstrous Fir in my yard that need to come down and I'll be cutting boards out of it for my own oars..

Might want to consider adding "corner condoms" to the pads similar to what Jacks does...

My new sideboards... Wood burned map markings, grooved out river channel with Dremmel tool and filled with urethane and glitter mix. Then coated with 4 layers of urethane and sprinkled with Trex sand for grip.

Either with a lid or we fabricated some little aluminum tabs that hook on the edge of the small bucket and allow the top bucket to rest over the bottom bucket giving you a better height for your wash station.

NRS DRE Handwash Station
I just searched for the Whale foot pump used on the NRS/DRE setup, and found this one for $24 w/free shipping. Looks pretty similar for half the price. I just ordered one, and I'll let you guys know how it works when it shows up in a few days.
