Re: Matt's Geronimo

Looks great Matt. I have been planning on the ETEC 115 for my Vera Cruise but may still consider a 90 for the weight reduction. It's hard to judge how much power will be needed. Your Geronimo has made really fast progress lately. I bet it feels good after having to put on the brakes early when you h...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Beginning to wonder if the Earth is moving closer to the sun. If it gets much hotter, I am going to start working at night (heck with the noise) (Just kidding).

108 degrees today!!

Re: Howdy from Texas

Hi Bill, Welcome to the forum. There are many builders here in Texas building Glen L designs. Probably an equal number building Bateau and any other number of designer's boats. This forum is primarily Glen L builders although people are building/restoring (and have built) other designs. Best part of...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Water will mainly be for washing although I plan on making it potable. Normally plan on having a cooler with bottled water handy. Frankly, I've gone round and round on this particular feature, not sure just how useful it will be, but in the end felt that having a means to clean hands would handy.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Finally, after 10 days of waiting to get well enough to work on the boat, I was able to get back to it. Today was so blinking hot that I couldn't stay outside for very long, but I managed to get a platform made for the cabinet to hold the fresh water and gray water tanks. It's a tight fit, bit I can...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Ha ! Very astute observation! Thanks for the concern guys. Had a bit of a flare up of pain yesterday afternoon. I guess the treatment only accelerates the passing of the stone, so some pain from the continued voyage down the "Great Circle Route" is to be expected. Bill, Thanks for the head...

Sale On Ancor Wire

I got an ad today from West Marine showing 50% off on Ancor wire today if anyone is interested. Can't vouch for their prices as compared to others. But if you need wire , it might be worth a look.

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Funny you should mention the front and back garage doors, Carl. We have the hangar door in the back and the garage doors in the front. We usually drive in the back access road and drive through our back yard entering the garage/ hangar from the runway side. Instead of taxiing a plane through the ba...

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Of course it's not all correct thinking on my part concerning the bandsaw. I too wanted one of those super nice saws as well as a nice table saw. What saved my from these purchases was the absolute lack of space in my garage. As it is, I have to move the bandsaw and table saw around just to use them...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Always refreshing to see new tips come across this forum. I've sometimes wondered about the eventual mounting of the outboard on my Vera Cruise. I've seen the transom bands mentioned by Matt (i.e. Hercdrvr) but the rubber pads are something I didn't consider. I can see that this is another area I am...
