Gentry in Minnesota got wet

Postby trisailor » Wed Oct 24, 2012 7:27 am

After two years in the making (and still being made), my boat had it's first spin. It was not without a few hiccups (a slipping transmission and no idle potential), but a real thrill, nonetheless. A beautiful fall afternoon in Minnesota for the event.

I followed your build in the other forum and you have a beautiful boat! It is a significant milestone to see it float and perform in the water. Congratulations!

While I know you have a bit more to do, be prepared for BBWS (Boat Building Withdrawal Syndrome). After spending two years planning, designing, and building, you will miss the day to day challenge of doing the next thing on the boat.

not likely.....the rear admiral has another two years of backlogged projects for me to catch up on. I'll have to sneak down in the middle of the night to keep working on it!!!!!!!!

the frame is actually finished. It is a six foot door with a nine foot header. a two foot false frame comes out to expose a full width opening. boat's out (and back in) and now it's back to being a standard six foot fully framed door. I extended the width when I built a twenty six foot sailboat in the same basement. had to get it out somehow.

Where in MN are you located? I am in the Twin Cities and would love to see the boat firsthand if you took visitors/admirers :-)
