Re: Matt's Geronimo

Matt, I'm trying to stay fairly close to plan on this because I think Glen drew a really great boat. But sometimes things are a little different in full scale. BillJ nobody wants to see it at the Gathering more than me! I talked to the guy that's going to rig my Etec! Super nice guy. Says he'll do h...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Oh, baby! Now that the board is in place I can see that the 3" reveal (amount the coaming sticks up above the sheer) in the plans is way too much for my taste. I'm going to start with 2" and see how that looks. It will taper at both ends but at the front it ties into the windshield. Hopefu...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

So for a while, I have been stumped on the coamings. They are supposed to be flush with the bottom edge of the carling and notch out for the front and rear decks. How was I going to mark the cutouts? So I just put the board in place and started messing around. Nothing was working because the bottom ...

Re: Food

I brought beer last time. I ended up with a lot of donations by Sunday morning. It took me a long time to dispose of the leftovers.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Carl, I'll likely end up buying the Evinrude. I plan on keeping the boat for a long time. Quality used motors don't seem to be a whole lot cheaper than what I was quoted for this new one. I don't mind paying a reasonable price for something new if I know I'm likely to keep it for 10-15 years or more...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Carl, I'll have non-skid in the cockpit.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

The deck will be painted. Got a quote from an Evinrude dealer today! I'll be negotiating with them some more tomorrow.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, that looks great! Is that with the extra cabin height you were going for before? If so the proportions look great.
