Re: Matt's Geronimo

Matt, I think you've hit on the biggest issue I have with the winch setup which is that my bow eye is above the rubber "Y" bow stop. So I am having to try to winch over the top of that which is not working at all. I have to see if there is something I can do with the parts I have or if I n...

Thanks, Neel! That lake was a zoo yesterday afternoon and she handled it like a champ. I gave out long before the boat ever would have.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! It really means a lot. Carl, I don't mind the questions. Who knows maybe somebody will get inspired and build their own. Bill, he digs it. The windshield will help, he doesn't like the wind right in his face. We really had perfect weather today though and I didn'...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Craig, he had a great day. He's wore slap out. The center floor section is hinged. There are PFDs under there. And we have FOUR throwables since they were on clearance and we don't have upholstery yet.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Hi Matt, I was wondering about your rear bench seat. I have been thinking of doing the same since starting my build but could never settle on how I wanted to construct it so it has been pushed aside for all these years of building. I think what you have done is really nice and would be interested i...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Awesome day! We are all tired and a little sunburnt. The Geronimo is a fantastic boat. She sits a little stern heavy but I was expecting that.
