Re: Rampage Update 2017

Hi Jim, Thanks for the feedback - unfortunately for some reason my lines were super obvious even in the sunlight, so I had to tear everything down. The good news is I managed to work smart and not hard - I did some research on the forums here and found out that a heat gun and paint scraper is the wa...

Re: Aussie Gentry

Boy does that look nice in the light!

Out of curiousity, how many people did it take to lift it onto the trailer, and how did you lift? Was the motor in it?

Re: Aussie Gentry

John, that is one seriously wicked looking engine! I love all the custom fabrication to get everything mounted correctly as well. Beautiful work as always!

Re: Geronimo Boat Ride

Bob, I'd play with the trim for sure the next time you're out. It's a bit tedious to get used to trimming up and down every time you go out - but it becomes second nature pretty soon, and makes a world of difference. Think of it like driving a car...you'd never want to stay stuck in "first gear", as...

Re: Geronimo Boat Ride

I second Matt's question - it looks like you could maybe trim up a bit and get some more speed? But could be wrong. Beautiful clip either way!

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Hi All, Thanks as always for following, and the kind words! Matt, I had the exact same thought - if I ever need to work on the hull, I want to be able to take everything out. I can also remove the full rear seats / bench to make working on the engine / hardware *way* easier, and lighten things up a ...

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/set/?set=...

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 uprights to ...

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...
