Re: Florida Malahini Build

Hey David, I used to live in Vero Beach, then moved away to Maryland, then moved back to Melbourne Florida. I go down to Sebastian a lot and I am probably going to Join the EAA (Experimental Aircraft Association) chapter in Vero Beach, so I will be going down there pretty often. I would like to see ...

Re: G-13 Lunch Run to Chattanooga 9/13/19

Marta and Myself are going, but we probably won't be able to bring our boat. So we will need a ride.

Re: Catalina Dual Console or Calypso Dual Console

Sorry the next post took so long. I got a temporary job gig last week, and it took all my time up. Anyway here is a list of what I want to accomplish with my build, and I hope to post sketches of the current design either in this post or next post, but still have it posted tonight. Goals of Project....

Catalina Dual Console or Calypso Dual Console

Hey All, I want to start a thread detailing my build. Off and on for the past 14 years I have been looking at building a Catalina Express, Phantom, or Calypso. I bought the paper study plans for the Phantom, and Catalina Express around 2004, and in 2015 I bought the same plans in PDF form. I have be...

Re: G-12 "Friday Lunch Run To Chattanooga"

I am bummed out that I have to say this, because I was really looking forward to the lunch trip. But I don't think we will be able to make it to the lunch run on Friday, so you can cross off Ryan and Marta Lash with our Bayliner. We are still trying to make it for part of the weekend, but we will dr...

Re: Who's Going and Where

Hey All, I am going to have to change our reservations to "maybe". I was laid off in the spring, I have been working temporary jobs, and side jobs, and I was hoping I would have something permanent lined up by now. We still might be able to make it, but money might be too tight and we might not be a...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

In terms of storing your anchor, you might look for a plastic milk crate box. I store mine in a milk crate, and it keeps everything together and I can tie the crate to the boat wherever I want it to stay. I can also move it around to help with weight and balance. Most of the time I have it in the bo...

Re: Converting a non-marine 305 and is it worth it

The motor really only has about 30 minutes on it. It is a 1996-1997 vortec 305 with the roller cam. I would also need to replace the head gaskets correct? The head gasket replacement depends on if you use raw water cooling which is sea water, or if you use fresh water cooling (which is sometimes ca...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

I don't know if there is a free ramp at Lake Schafer or Freeman, but it may be worth it to pay for the first splash since it is so close to you. If I remember right Racoon Lake was about 55 miles from Lafayette and It took me an hour and 15 minutes to get there. And the lake at Peru was pretty far a...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Hey Matt, Being a former West Lafayette resident, I am wondering where you are going to splash your boat when you get it done? In the Wabash, Tippecanoe, or Lake Schafer, or Freeman, or the peat bog in Otterbein. I need to make it up to Indiana sometime in the Fall, to visit family in Lafayette, Ind...
