Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

This is the first chance I've had in a while to show any actual noticeable progress. I am working on encapsulating the interior of the hull. Previously I have just been cleaning up excess glue. I'm not going to clean up everything that will end up being covered up by the floor. I have a lot of squee...

Re: chine sandwich on Malahini?

Re: GERONIMO floor foul up

I'm planing to route the control cables and wiring behind the carling. In that location they'll be mostly accessible in the future if need be. Carl, the plans show the bulkhead about 10" aft of frame 1, which leaves woefully little room for a fuel tank. Other possible tank locations might inclu...

Re: I will be turning wood into a boat shortly.

I had to do the same thing in my barn to get my boat out. Exact same situation.

Re: G-11 Report

Sounds like a great time. Glad the weather worked out! I'll be busting tail to get my boat done for the next one as soon as this latest "heat wave" lets up.

The P51 did change the war if I'm not mistaken. It had the range to escort the bombers all the way into Germany. The Spitfire was quite agile, however.

Re: GERONIMO floor foul up

Bob, sorry about your mixup with the foam. Glad you got it straightened out. If I'm reading the original post correctly did you say that you put flooring forward of frame 5? Also, is your floor between frame 4 and 5 below the setup level or is that just an illusion of the pictures?

Re: pvc drain tubes

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

It looks exactly like mine when I was at that stage. There's a point where things seem really messy. Then you just keep going and eventually get to a point where you say "good enough."
