Aaron, Someone had to consume the "toast" while TAD flipped the toon.

Thanks for the compliment. For those that don't know. Wimp stands for: Wonderfull Impressive Marvelous Person.

Dave,

I knew I was missing something on the first flip. A toast has been added to the top of my check list for the next two flips. :wink: I was too busy on the first flip making sure that the "TAD" and his friend were perfectly lined up with the Earth's rotation and the Moon's gravitational pull before pulling off such a feat. :lol:

Mike,

I have been told quite often that I am full of it. Full of what I don't know. :? :lol: Maybe it's cow chips. :wink:

Probably behind your muffler bearings. Or else next to the bucket of prop wash. :wink:

Arron,

You were close. It rolled under my muffler bearings, past the muffler grease and came to rest against my board stretcher. Now if I could only find my "MRI" (Marble Re Implanter) I could get back to work. :lol:

Now what is wrong with that? Momma always told me to keep my prop clean. :wink: :lol:

I wasn't going to update this soon, but I wanted to beat Oyster to the punch. Besides I don't think he came a knocking the other day for an update. I saw those fishing poles behind his back. :D The biggest change on the middle pontoon is it is 12' long while the other two are 16', thus it has one less bulkhead. Another thing I did different was to use true 1" lumber for the bulkhead framing and keel. Something I wish I had done all along. Also, the transom and station 1 are set an extra 2" aft so as to line up with the deck framing. Now remember my bow out problem with pontoon #1. I just knew it would be worse on this shorter pontoon, so I went back to my notes and realized I needed to really soften up the notch in the forward bulkhead. I think my one marble was sitting just right tonight. :D No fairing has been done, so be nice.

That little shrimp boat is going to bite me if I don't finish it soon. :( But, it's to blame, that's my first Glen-L build. Then a 9' tubby tug and now a battery powered 16' pontoon (modified to a tri-toon). The batteries are going to power a ----------------------. :?: What's next? A 20', 30'. Oh, no. I'll admit it, I need help. But, I think I came to the wrong place for it. :lol:

Pirate,

If you are referring to those brown bottles in the pictures I borrowed them from my neighbor. :wink: And if you examine the two pictures you will notice that there are three of them. They are placed in a perfect 90 degree triangle. The fore mentioned triangle was used to verifly the alignment of the laser that was used to determine the center of the keel. :lol:

Ok,

I'm busted. Since Dave made me realize that I forgot to toast the first flip I figured it was only right to have a post toast. Then I thought that I should pratice my toasting for the next two flips. Would hate to let everyone down again. :oops: Pratice makes perfect. :D Also, I was real happy how the chine turned out on the little toon so another toast was in order. :lol:
"Tiny bubbles, Tiny bubbles" That song has been stuck in my head all day. :?
