Oh, also bought a $29 dollar drill from Harbor Freight that was a right angle drill, (With plug, no battery!) that worked really well on the tight quarters....

FYI

Nice Robert. What are you going to veneer them with?

I have a question for the list. Can anyone send me some picture or tell me how they fastened the lifting eyes on a barrelback?

Thanks

Robert

Hi Robert,
Original barrelbacks had a bracket that was bolted in to a frame in the front of the boat. Those brackets are available but the frames on the glen l boats are not in the correct location. I got a 1/2" bronze rod and put threads on each end. The threads on the lift ring are finer threads than on the other end. I got some stainless angle and made my own bracket that I epoxied and bolted into the stem at the proper location below the deck. In the back I drilled a hole through the curved boards that are attached to the transom and used some of the same bronze rod. The curved boards are about 6-8 inches thick so I figured that was enough. In the front, I doubled up on the king plank so that any lateral movement would not screw up my deck. There are lock nuts for up and down adjustment and so that things don't move around. I will never lift the boat with the lift rings, but I will use the one in the back for a ski rope. I will also use both rings for tying up the boat at the dock. The one on the front of the boat will also be used for my trailer winch strap for retrieval.

Here is a picture of the commonly used lift brackets. There is a threaded lug that slides into the loop that accepts the threaded rod for the lifting eye. I used two on the aft of the Torpedo, attaching them to the motor stringers. For the front, I attached a 3" x 3/8" AL angle spreader bracket to the stringer extensions for the threaded rod. I wanted the eye to be next to the frame deck beam for added strength when retrieving the boat and hauling.

Here is a link to Great Lakes Skipper and some parts that they have.

Hi Robert,
Here is a picture of the lift ring bracket on an original 1939 Chris Craft.
