Thai longtail boat plans

This is the boat I’m building. It’s more of a longer, narrow jon boat, not a true sampan, but sampans are like canoe shaped-jon boats. I had hoped to finish this boat quickly, but I’ve decided to take my time with it instead.

Bayou Bushing for SPS Longtails

Maintenance, guys! It was time to replace the flange bushing on my small SPS longtail. Mr. Dobbs has been testing a new called the Bayou Bushing. It’s nice! Cheaper than a brass bushing without the electrolysis worries. more durable than the delrin bushing with the worry of it melting, and longer lasting than wood without worrying about it cracking. It’s the bee’s knees!

Superworms Bedding Change

I’ve started a superworm colony. This is proving far easier than their smaller cousins called mealworms. It’s easier from a fisherman’s perspective. Superworms will not pupate until you isolate them. As a fisherman the main colony will remain in larvae form.That’s a big time saver.

Mealworms would often morph and change, leaving no bait to fish with. In the summers this isn’t a problems as I breed black soldier fly larvae. But since black soldier fly larvae don’t live amid winter, I’m usually stuck high and dry for bait. Super worms are proving to be the perfect solution for that.
