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

I just got off the phone with Jill at the Chattanooga Marina.... We are all set to dock there for lunch. We will most likely be on the same dock as last year with overflow in slips near the fuel dock. They do have fuel at the marina and all you need to use the pump is a credit card. So far we are lo...

Re: Somerset, KY Gentry

I am sure it was to provide strength for the exhaust. Here is picture from the inside. You can see the plywood pieces where the exhaust holes will go along with the beefed up battens over the limbers.

Re: Somerset, KY Gentry

Honestly Carl, I can't remember what the purpose was. I do remember being concerned about the strength of the transom where the exhaust goes through. The plywood was probably an overkill on my part. I always build things stronger than they need to be !!

Re: Somerset, KY Gentry

Carl... The lowest point in my Gentry is directly under the seat in the forward cockpit, or about 12 inches forward of the motor. I put cross limbers at the transom because I was planning to keep the boat on a trailer. If you plan on keeping the boat in the water, put them at the lowest point. Befor...

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

It's time to start sorting out the "Friday River Run". I have contacted the Big River Grill and reserved the upper room for our group. Last year we had about 50 people and I expect the same number this year. It works best if all boats are fueled, loaded, and ready to depart Hales Bar at 10:30 AM (CD...

Re: Who's Going and Where

This probably doesn't belong here, but John Holmes recently finished his Gentry Build and will be taking it to G-13. He has tried to post pictures of his finished product on the forum, but is unable to post. So I told him I would try to post a couple... So here goes !!

Very nice John

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Is your fuel tank vented properly? I have had similar issues in the past where the fix was to vent the tank. This seems basic, but it could be your problem.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I have found that the 2" brushes from HF don't shed much at all if you cut half of the bristles off with scissors and then pull on the bristles to remove most or all of the loose ones. The epoxy spreads better also with the shorter bristles.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl…. I just want to add a couple cents here..... Making a recessed curved hatch to match the curve of the deck is not all that difficult. That should be a piece of cake for you !! I would take that concern out of the equation.... Neel

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Thanks Jim.... My wife's car has not been in the garage in years. And believe me, I have heard about that many, many times. We have two garage bays as well. Scooter is in one and the PB is in the other. I also occasionally hear about the red dust that coats every piece of furniture in the house. Thi...
