re: Jon boat repair : Rivets - TigerTaco
I restored a '74 1542 Duracraft and replaced a number of rivets after drilling them out. Nothing to it. It helps to have another set of hands to back up the rivet with a heavy sledge when you peen the end. The end of the rivet easily mushrooms. After I replaced the rivets, I filled the hull to check...

re: Anyone know where to get steel tubing bent? - TigerTaco
I've seen that video. I have wood to build a jig but haven't had the time to build it. A bigger problem is I don't have a work table heavy enough to not move during bending. If the price is right, I'll pay to have it done. ...

re: Anyone own a CZ Rimfire (452 or 455)? - TigerTaco
My kids have a CZ 452 Scout. Out of the ammo I have tried, CCI Green Tag and CCI SV were 5 shots one hole results. I have some other target ammo to try the next time out, but I doubt it can get much better. I was surprised, but M22 shot slightly better than the CCI in my 10/22 with a target barre...

re: How to repair a hole in a kayak? *UPDATE - TigerTaco
If you buy the GFlex I mentioned, you'll only have to repair it once. Now that I see that there are holes rather than a crack, I recommend also buying colloidal silica/cabosil to thicken the GFlex epoxy to Vaseline consistency so that you can fill the holes. Then cover with fiberglass and GFlex. Not...

re: How to repair a hole in a kayak? *UPDATE - TigerTaco
Pick up a kit of West System GFlex epoxy and a small piece of 4 or 6 oz. fiberglass cloth from West Marine. Standard epoxy doesn't stick very well to polyethylene. If you go the GFlex route, check the info that comes in the pack or West System's website as the prep varies per type of plastic. For...

re: Type of paint for a fiberglass pirogue - TigerTaco
I've painted a fiberglass boat with Interlux Perfection 2 part paint. Not sure they make a flat version though. I assume that is what you will want on a pirogue if you use it for hunting. The Interlux I used has a high gloss that has been very durable. The fumes are bad so you will need an inexp...

re: Cricket vs. Savage Rascal: opinions? - TigerTaco
If you can find one, I highly recommend a CZ Scout. My kids have one and it's a great shooter. I put a Nikon rimfire scope on it. A dime can cover a 5 shot group at 50 yards with CCI ammo. [img]http://cz-usa.com/hammer/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/cz-usa-cz-452-scout-500x333.png[/img]...
