Re: Congratulations, Roberta!!

Can I ask a question? Your front flagstaff: How long is it? I'm looking for one about 13 - 15"....shortest I can find is 18", which is just too long for my boat. Need one for a 3/4" socket, too. Can't find one & I'm ready to borrow a friend's lathe. Yours looks to be shorter than 18"...or is that ju...

Re: small block engine for Riviera

Is there anything sexier than a brand-new crate engine, bolted to a skid? Love it!

Congratulations & good luck on the installation!

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Well, like most things, there's a back story. If you followed my build thread, you know that my '53 Super Fastwin died (blown journal bearing) on launch day.....so I bought a 25HP that got me through the vacation. The 25HP ran great, but was a wee bit under-powered for the boat. Once back in NJ, I d...

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Didn't have to plug & re-drill...happily! Holes were sanded out so that the tubes are now "sloppy" by about 1/16"......and the holes have been given 2 coats of laminating epoxy. Holes still have enough room for the tubes + thickened epoxy. My construction epoxy order showed up last night, but the we...

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

I'm giving this a ton of thought, and I keep circling back on your notion: plug the hole (glue in a 1" dowell) and start over with a 1-1/16" bit...
