    DIY Casting Deck

    That's great-looking work. Doing a similar thing to my boat right now. I'll post photos soon. Todd

    Fiberglass / Core Materials Locally?

    Thanks @Tubejig. I called them up and they gave me the name of Advanced Plastics here in West Knoxville (5 minutes from my office). Turns out they can get coosa board and sell to the public (on a limited basis). He ordered a sheet for me that'll be here next week! I'm about ready to kick this project off.

    Fiberglass / Core Materials Locally?

    Thanks Rusty - I was thinking the same thing. I'll be bugging those guys early next week.
  4. Hope everyone's surviving the deep freeze... I'm planning some modifications to the deck layout of my fiberglass / composite boat and am having a hard time finding a retailer in the Knoxville area who carries resin, fiberglass, core materials (like nida-core or corecell), other composite boat materials like coosa board, etc. Does anyone know of any place that sells to the public other than West Marine? Getting core materials or epoxy resin online carries some crazy shipping charges. Thanks for your help, Todd (technowannabe)

    Any where one could point a novice Walleye fisherman?

    Just to add maybe a bit more info to the thread, for completeness, the river running into the French Broad below the 66 bridge (behind smoky mountain knifeworks) is the Little Pigeon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Opry99er unicorn

    Nice one. I caught one a little bigger than that on the fly rod this past Friday behind a big submerged rock on the French Broad with pretty good current. That was a huge surprise first one I've caught in that stretch. I guess they're spawning? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    French Broad SM - good day out

    I spent about 7 hours on the river today tossing streamers with the fly rod. Gorgeous day, with water surface temp around 60 at 11AM. Tied into a decent (15" + chunky) one within a half hour or so. Things slowed to a crawl until I started heading back upstream around 4:00 pm - when I picked up a strong, feisty, 17.5" smallie that took me airborne and dove to the bottom several times... Love how strong they seem this time of the year. Only saw two other boats all day long - (on a SATURDAY!!!) Getting spoiled here in Tennessee for sure. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nissan outboard - best local shop?

    Thanks Hugh. I'll give that a shot beforehand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Nissan outboard - best local shop?

    Thanks Rusty. I'll start there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I've got a Nissan 9.8 hp outboard tiller engine that is "making oil" - gas in the oil, probably needs a fuel pump, etc. Any recommendations for a local Nissan repair / maintenance shop? I'm located in West Knoxville - but can drive a bit if that's what it takes to get quality, honest work done. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
