Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I made a new bracket for the rudder today. Fun little project. I did most of it on the table saw. I used the tennoning jig to cut the shoulders. I then cleaned up the shoulders with a shoulder plane that I don't get to use much either. The angle is 20 degrees to correct for the tilt of the transom. ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I believe the rudder is supposed to be bent like that to allow you to remove the propshaft without having to pull the rudder. Ryan - I had not thought of that. I took it down to a marine machine shop to straighten it out and also machine a keyway that should have been there for the tiller arm. If I...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Seems like there is some good info here
Looks like they recommend the corkscrew method and about 2 to 4 layers

Also here on Glen-L Forum

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

The stuffing box on the Glen-L site says that the stuffing can be replaced without taking off the tiller arm. Mine looks the same as this one. I was wondering how the heck to do that...YouTube to the rescue: Here is a really helpful video on how to replace the rudder packing. After watching the vide...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I know nothing about rudders or rudder stuffing boxes which is probably why I waited until now to mess with it. I was going to ignore it :D but since its a potential place for water to come in I thought I better dig into it so I pulled it all apart today as a exploratory and learning exercise. Some ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I ran all the wiring aft this weekend (blower, Aux USB Charger, anchor light). I also wired up the MOB device and ran wires up front for the navigation lights (have not cut the hole in the deck yet) I also installed the LED light strips that run under the covering boards and under the dash I used th...

Re: Kill Switches

Here are my observations I was able to pair the Fob really easily: Hold button on MOB unit until it flashes blue Then hold button ob FOB and then the MOB turns green I now get one nice audible beep when the igni...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl I'm glad that you got the router table! Way safer and easier than trying to balance a router on that piece. You may even consider adding a table extension to it.

Is that the offset piece in the pic or the "regular" one?

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The cabinet looks great!

Isn't it nice to build something that does not need to be epoxy encapsulated :D

Re: Aussie Belle

Jamie, the Boat is looking great again!

I like your lift system, do you have any pics and details about how you mounted your lifting eyes in the boat?

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

So using the router bushing guide you and Bryan mentioned, I can cut the landing using the template I made for the frames. The offset between the cutting bit and the outside of the router template will provide the extra material on the inner and outer edges of the landing pieces. Carl - I have used...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Installed and wired up the bilge pump and float switch today. Wired for Manual and automatic modes. Rule 200 Pump Rule 35A Float switch After some internet research I used Fast cure 4200 to stick them both down. Seems to hold pretty good. I didn't want to add the extra height of a wood block to scre...

I’m looking forward to your reviews on it. Please post pics of the unit and faubs.
Here is a picture of it installed (not wired yet) with a custom wooden bracket (more pics of the bracket here)

Pic of the fob as requested.

I will be wiring it up soon.
