re: Ongoing Pirogue Restoration


I am sure someone else will know a better way, but I have used a marine epoxy to fill a couple of small holes before.
My Ron Chapman had a hole in the hull in the side, right at the bottom. I used the marine epoxy. Then used fiberglass on the inside and outside. I have no fiberglass experience and it doesn't look great, but it doesn't leak. You can get a glass kit from Napa.

You should be able to get info from La dept of transportation or whoever registers boats using the registration numbers on the side visible in first post.


And Fwiw a trolling motor on that thing with 30 lbs of thrust or more will have it flat moving.

re: Ongoing Pirogue Restoration


I might look into it when I get a chance. With a kid on the way and my dad in Afghanistan (technically his boat), I don't think I want to deal with the hassle.

I did put a 6hp on the back of it in highschool at a private pond and hauled arse.

I just want this to be a hassle free, toss in the back of my truck, and toss in the water deal.

ETA: I don't know any history of the boat at all, and I don't want to go digging up bones and getting my dad into some shite over anything I might not know about this boat

Went with a flatter and darker olive this morning over the satin olive from last night. I like it a lot more.

You definitely need a trolling motor.

Camo preferably.

I know I know I will look into the registration and see what I need to do. Good thing is that I will use it a lot on private land, so I can strap on a trolling motor without worrying about green jeans lurking through the bushes trying to ruin my day.

Right side main stencil work done. I thought it turned out pretty well. I am thinking of staggering the stencil between 2 of the black patterns again with a brown to break up that straight shot I have going on now. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated.

I overlaid the stencil with a couple of different colors. I will get a better picture.

Thanks Web, I think I'm gonna stack that stencil a couple of times with 2 shades of brown.
