Our triple super secret sailboat parts store serving Austin and Lake Travis is almost starting to be presentable and if you can convince us something we have is exactly what you want, we will sell it to you.
We stock so many kinds of sandpaper, stainless fasteners, paints, thinners, resins, varieties and weaves of fiberglass we are often surprised we know how to use all the stuff
the work in progress is pictured below. Now featuring over $10,000 in the line we think makes it possible for anyone to sail today...not waiting till next week
We have been having fun making pedicab bodies. This seat is not only
easy to see in traffic but it is 20 lbs lighter than our competitor's similar size seat
Imagine your own seat cushions and wheels

The lake is way down again and we have diversified a bit.
We are making special things and acting as a production shop for some new toys
If you have a concept, we might be able to create a working version...or not.
When we know how to make something we don't learn anything building it.
Nurse Lu had us build this pink fiberglass pump cover so she could paint dots on it to look like Granite Shoals local rocks
This is our Circraft prototype. We plan to be the US builder.
Circraft sold 100 each of the last five years in Europe.
This is our first mid size Pedicab prototype. The seat is made from our
new mold and the wrap around back is a work in progress

It is still time for another new opening page photo but Romeo hasn't had time to sail.
The concept of this site has something to do with our belief that if more people knew about sailing, more people would be able to enjoy the fun.
Of course, we hope it will also become a place to send our customers for information about our services.

We Now Stock and Sell Line
Cash or checks. We don't take credit cards because the law will not let us charge properly to recover the bank fees.
We do not have a particularly wide selection and, for the most part, only have one spool and one color of any given size and brand. On the other hand, we usually have something that will do the job and we are a few bucks worth of gasoline closer to AYC than anybody else.
We also stock some hardware, fasteners, sandpaper, thinners, paints, brushes, paper suits, gloves, and lots of things that should save hobbyists from making a trip all the way to the store....
and we actually DO know how to use all the stuff
We are making this boat into a masterpiece... The Electra Project

On January 27, 2010. Waldo continues his political career by delivering the yet another Canine reply.
He was so confident he didn't even take a bath first. He came straight from rolling on the muddy
White House lawn with the First Family's Portuguese Water Dog, slapped on this suit and began speaking>>
"My fellow Pooches. Tonight the State of the Union is muddy and wet.
We can do better and we must.
" I believe there must be immediate legislation passed to provide each home with the funding
to keep a jar of biscuits not just by the back door but by every door in every house in America.
My plan for regular vet care for every dog was not met well politically.
I suppose bringing up cats was not exactly a good idea, I was chewed up in the polls.
However we must try to work even with the cats.
There is no need to continuously campaign for our respective sides by tattling about claw marks and chewed furniture.
To use their terms 'We must claw our way through this."....
He continued for many minutes. .
Ouch!! Help help!!
I got fiberglass on me!!!
Taken on the day he arrived and a couple weeks later with his paw in the dish, this is Waldo 2007-2019

New J-105 hanging in hoist for Bottom Paint summer 2005. Is that keel really crooked?
This shot was taken in late 1991. Lake Travis is flooded to about 710 feet above mean sea level (MSL). Fred took this shot from Psycho the J-24 #187. This is the spillway on Mansfield dam. Its height is 714 above MSL. The next day the LCRA asserted its power as an unelected quasi government agency and arbitrarily closed the lake to everybody but their bureaucrats and minions.
We have lots of photos taken around the lake at levels ranging from 634 to 710 above MSL

Need a good accountant?? We love our guys. They came by for lunch once and we had Jack pose with a sander. Great number crunching and a sense of humor. You can't beat that.

Same old thing again...This photo is from 2009 but as of November 2014 the lake had been lower than this for two consecutive years...phooey
It didn't fill up again until 2016
In the winter of 2018 we had a huge flood again. and as of early 2019 the lake is full
Can you believe this??
Schroth Fiberglass goes back to before there was fiberglass or Fred himself.
Not only were we sponsoring a baseball team 20 years before Fred was born but the league commissioner named was named Page ...same as Fred's Granddad.
