I used the wood from the building form to build access stairs.

A great day. Congratulations on the flip. Looks like you had enough help. More hands always make the job easier.

Congrats on the flip, looks great!

Amazing how much the boat grows when you flip.

Also like the trailer, wish mine was on a trailer. Dont forget to cover that nice new trailer up so as to not spill any
epoxy on it. I thought i was being careful but have ended up with drips on the sides which i have to sand off.

Great job Will! I'm excited for you. She looks great. I'm not too far behind and I can just imagine the satisfaction you must have felt when you finally saw her right side up. Very cool and thanks for sharing the flip photos.

I've got a few questions for you all out there.... I have been sidetracked for a while as sometimes in life that happens....

1. How do I attach this thing. HA HA... Is it easily drilled? I was thinking getting some small lags, bolts, to attach the brackets to the cross bar and then attach the brackets to the motor stringers. Can you all point me to a picture that may have been posted already?

2. I have one blackfish bearing for the strut. Do I need two of them to fill the whole length of the strut? Also, I think I read in one of the threads somewhere, probably's Roberts's thread about using a threaded rod, nut and larger washer to push the bearing into the strut. Does that sound right?

Image

I am prepping the inside of the hull right now for bilge paint and I have been cutting the additional beams for the seating areas. I've got a lot of catching up to do with JimBob, which his boat is looking awesome!!! All of you have been making some great progress...... I got a lot of reading to do on the threads as well.

Thanks in advance for all the advice!!!!

it is easily drilled, I Mounted the right angle brackets on the motor stringers then clamped the alloy rudder support and right angle brackets together then drilled through I cut a 5/16th unc thread in brackets and used domed cap screws, but bolt and nut is fine
cut your strut bearing in half and put 1/2 in each end of the strut using threaded rod

I used two three inch bearings and put one in each end.
I used 3/8 " threaded rod on the first bearing and couldn't get it all the way in .
On the second one, I put it in the freezer first, and used 1/2 threaded rod with lubricated threads and it went easy. Was also able to finish the first pull with the larger rod.

I also used AL angle brackets bolted to the stringers and then to the bracket like Jenko did.

On my strut I used one 4" bearing and cut it in half per Glen L instructions. Then installed the 2" pieces in each end with a 1/2" threaded rod, washers, and nuts. Like Doug recommended, freezing the bearings will shrink them a bit and help draw them in.

Hi Will,
This is what I did with the rudder "thing". It is made of aluminum so it is easy to drill. I added blocking to the insides of the motor stringers so they are flush with the top of the motor stringers. I drilled additional holes in the "thing" and then attached it with bronze lag bolts. I didn't use the angle mounts that they provided.

I used these Cutlass Bearings.

One in front and one in rear. They are holding up great.
