I don't know about that FC,
have you tried to find a piece of 18 foot long,
clear grain cypress or fir lately?
Bloody expensive lumber when you can find it!

:eek:

ok not to be a jerk here but I don't understand the justification of the price? What I mean is what are the benefits that make it more expensive then say a carbon fiber or extruded aluminum pole that weighs less? where man hours are concerned I understand them well after designing and building my boat, but I also know most people add drying times into man hour calculations to seem more dramatic. As far as a career I am a Firefighter/EMT.

Brett I'm sure it is pricey, but isn't the point of projects like yours and mine to get the job done cheaply and simply? actually isn't that the point of this whole site when you think about it?

That's some fine work there C&C! Looks awfully similar to building bamboo rods.

And It is glued together, now that the easy part is over, the fun begins tommorrow.
