Matt... After seeing the workmanship on your boat, I bet you could pull it off if you want them to open...

Thanks, Neel! From a practical perspective, I really don't think it's needed. It would mean some additional likely expensive hardware as well. It would be cool, though.

I also want to thank everybody that I met at G12 that complimented my boat. It really made me feel good to get those nice comments from folks that know what these boats are all about.

Matt… I saw this windshield at the Clayton NY show in August. I am thinking of a modified version of this for the PB 22.... I thought you might like to see it and maybe use a modified design also. I think it would look great if a little lower, a little more slant, with side glass as well. I really enjoyed seeing your Geronimo first hand. Happy you got her finished in time... Neel

That's pretty sleek looking Neel. A nice change from the standard cast brackets that a lot of folks end up with. It does look a little fragile though. I wonder how sturdy it is.

Frame 1 is all glued up! I'm making motor noises already! This process gets more enjoyable as I continue to make process. Had to drill bigger pilot holes in the white oak than I thought for the boat nails. It is really a pleasure to work with such nice wood.

Bob, thanks for the input on the screws. I'll probably run the 1 1/2" screws all the way through and grind or file off what goes through.


What size did u finish the frame at after planning them ?

I bought it random widths surfaced 2 sides with a straight line rip on one edge. 13/16ths thickness approximately.

I don't own a thickness planer.

Matt;
I recognized your boat in the video as soon as I saw the back of your seats. Looks like it's doing well. Congrats.
Happy boating.

Thanks! About a week and a half ago I had the day off and it was nice so I went to the lake by myself to run some gas out of the boat. I crossed a pontoon wake and I don't know if I actually caught air but I felt the back end hit the water before the front end. A pretty hair raising experience in a boat this size!

The Evinrude ETEC self-winterizing feature is super slick. It takes about a minute and a half. Plus you can thread a garden hose right into the back of the engine. No "muffs" required.

Air it out and yell “Geronimoooo” as the engine revs with prop out of the water. You’re not going to hurt that beast of a boat. I think it says in the Glen L description the hull is designed specifically for bashing waves and getting some air.
