    Does anybody have leads on a source for wooden gunnels or lumber near Houston Texas? Or a good source that can ship the long lengths? We need to replace the gunnels on a 15 1/2 ft boat.

    Thanks,

    In calling around it looks like my best source is Clark's Hardwood Lumber Co., 700 E. 5 1/2 (in the Heights) Houston, Tx 77007, 713-862-6628. They had both rough and finished in the lengths needed.

    Thought I'd reply to my own question so others searching can take benefit of it. Doug

    You've set the bar

    By answering your own question on an online forum I believe you have just taken "talking to myself" to a new level. Congratulations!?

    I'm busy talking to myself and can't hear you.

    Oh Hey!

    Is your gang from the UP coming down to Canoecopia in Madison March 9-11? We're having an exhibit booth there and it would be really fun to meet up with your gang. Let's say we entertain ourselves with foolish canoey talk while hoisting a few der, hey?!

    Our first meeting is next weekend and we shall discuss that with whoever shows up. Two of our number went last year. We would like to meet you folks. Sounds fun. We'll keep in touch. Denis

    Canoecopia-- holy wah!

    We'll be there, Splinter... I won't even say, "we'll TRY to be there" because as Yoda says, "there is no TRY-- there is only DO or NOT DO". I'll bring it up at our UP Chapter meeting next Saturday and maybe we can travel en masse.

    Wait, that sounds like beer talk... Do you allow flatlanders (from Silly-noise) to join you?

    Sure, everyone on the other side of the "cheddar curtain" is welcome. Let's get together.
