Re: Rampage Update 2017

Part 4 of 4 - Epoxying the hull / current state. As I finished getting all of the internals done, I figured it would be a good time to do a final once over on the whole deck with epoxy and ensure it was totally flat and ready to go. Good news and bad news on this front. Good news first, as Rush woul...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Part 3 of 4 - mounting the seats and benches. Mounting the benches and backrests took a few different steps - I had to notch the stringers for the benches, add the little mounting pivots to the stringer, notch the back bench to hold the uprights, and a few other things. Similar to the floors, I want...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Part 2 of 4 - seats and benches. The seats and benches are pretty much done now - and I really like how they turned out! Here's the benches - reinforced on the bottom with two full length members, fully sealed with epoxy everywhere. IMG_20180722_200753.jpg Next up are the backrests. As mentioned the...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Boy am I having a great summer - right after the last update my laptop kicked the dust, and it took over a month to get a new unit from Lenovo. Long story short, there went most of my summer. I did manage to get a decent amount of work done on the boat, but wasn't able to get the photos onto a compu...

ACBS 2018 Gravenhurst show

Hi all, Hopefully the below link works - I snapped some pictures of the ACBS show this year, with many (non glen-l but still beautiful) classic boats on display. "Thumper" was there again but I couldn't find Doug, unfortunately. Anyways, without further ado - https://www.facebook.com/media...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Hi All, Thanks for the kind words! Didn't get much more done this weekend as the wind was perfect for a long sail, and I spent most of Saturday at the annual boat show - see pics in another post. that being said, I did manage to get the backrests sanded and ready to go. I've got another few days off...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

This is part 4 of a multi part update (and will be the final part) - the rest of the update is in the previous 3 posts. Unfortunately I have to do this to get enough pictures uploaded, but I do apologize for making everyone click back through to read all 4 separately! To get the flag pole mounted, I...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Part three of a multi part update - go back two posts to see the start! With the benches drying, I could use the rest of my Sitka to make the uprights...and my flagpole! I used some clamps on the coaming to work out an acceptable level of "recline" in the back rests so I could angle the up...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

This is part two of a multi part update, so scroll up one if you're checking for the start of this full update. I did some planning and measuring on the seats to make sure that everything would fit properly, and then took a trip to Noah's marine in Toronto to grab what will likely be the last lumber...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Hi All, I'm back from a long, long disappearance. This summer has been very difficult to get work in on a continual basis, and then post about it, because of my work - but hopefully it will improve as the months pass. Carl, it does make a *huge* difference to have the shop a little more organized - ...

Re: Inboard engine builds

Welllll It's amazing how quickly you can take all of your hard work and planning and throw them out the window because of a beautiful girl. Meet "Maggie", the 454 Magnum (hence the name) I'm now the proud owner of: IMG_20180629_083558.jpg After some back and forth with both Dave and Paul, ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Quick follow up on the specific wiring - this is the circuit I would use. It has a manual switch and a float switch (no 3 way switch for "auto" mode, as forgetting to leave it in auto means the pump will not turn on even if the float activates, and that scares me). Wiring diagram.png Apolo...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

...and of course I completely forgot to answer the original question! In your diagram (which I haven't critiqued too closely given I don't think you should use a three way switch...), then you've got the LED and the pump in parallel as you should. Unless you have a critical failure, i.e. a short, th...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

You should be able to wire into the indicator from both switches (happy to provide a diagram if that helps) - that way either the manual switch, or the float switch, will turn on bilge pump and indicator light. I agree that the three way switch provides (potentially) the chance of the switch being i...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Hi all, Seems I'm running into some trouble with keeping pictures alive. I wish I knew a better way to get them posted...I'll see if I can upload them direct to the forum. Slow start to the season as work has been *incredibly* busy and the weather hasn't been great either...usually by late May I've ...
