New wannigan

New wannigan. Instead of just varnish, this one is first getting fiberglass cloth and West System epoxy. Super strong

    Hi Tim,
    I’m the whoopie pie guy from Mapleton. Hope the guys liked them.
    Great looking box. Curious about size. Have you seen the ones Gil Gilpatrick used to make? He used quarter inch plywood and fiberglass and claimed they would last for years on the Allagash.

  • Hi Lloyd. The guys LOVED the whoopie pies! I’ve had a bunch of different sizes over the years. I think it’s always better to get your cook kit together make the box fit it, rather than get a box and make your cook kit fit inside. I’m not sure the dimensions of this one (it’s in the barn). I know it’s taller to hold more stacked pots.

    I have seen Gil’s boxes. I have his book (excellent), and used the plans to build a few myself years ago. They definitely hold up with the fiberglass.
