Re: Bolero Build

Re: Bolero Build

I checked out that Van Dam boat you mentioned in your first post. Looks very similar to the Bolero to me. You just need some tumblehome in the transom and you'll be really close. The Bolero is capable of some serious speed. The "floating" frames is part of that. It's a really solid design ...

Re: 2018 Report

Mike, the t-shirt design is killer. Sorry we didn't get to talk more. Hope to see you next time! With the confluence of Sofia's volleyball schedule and my unexpected work trip, I didn't get to spend as much time at G12 as I had hoped.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

There's always a new and different task to work on with boatbuilding when you get frustrated. You can go back to the cabinet later with a fresh perspective.

Re: Bob's Geronimo, scuffed hull help

Bob, next time try one of these sponges if you need to scrub a little. A lot safer than that scotch brite!

Re: Geronimo Boat Ride

Bob, I don't know if you have a trim gauge. On mine I trim it up to about level after I get on plane and the RPMs jump up a few hundred. I have to trim back down for tight turns though or I get prop cavitation.
