Bob I would never do that I would tell you up front it would take a month when it will really take two weeks. ( gotta maintain my reputation as a miracle worker )

Seriously, if service providers would actually DO that, it would be a good thing. A pleasant surprise is sooo much better than perpetual mananas.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

I could have built this motor myself but the problem is right now I am just not set up to lift a 4000lb motor out of a truck nor do I have an engine stand to support it. Kind of makes it hard.

The cylinder head on that 3406E probably weighs more than the entire yanmar in my boat does.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Founds some old pics while I was home. This is the first boat I ever owned.



And me with Grandpa's boat.



Spent a lot of time on that boat as a kid.


Kind of reminiscing tonight. Grandpa was always there for me as a kid. He was one hell of a man.



Then came cancer, **** cancer.


Been thinking a lot about him the last few days. He was a really awesome guy, taught me a lot about life, instilled a lot of things in me, I owe much of who I am today to him.

Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Nick, I agree. Grandpas are grand. It's a good thing to reminisce and remember to be grateful for what they have given us. Mine at 16 left his family in Russia/Poland and with the clothes on his back and a loaf of black bread under his arm walked across Europe. Then he worked at the coast for two years to earn passage to America. All of his family who stayed died in WW II. I am forever grateful for his courage that allowed me to be born and to live in the country.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

Nick, Is your Grandfather's old boat a Glen-L 'SEA KNIGHT'?

I started building one of these ages ago. If you have any interest in building one yourself, you are welcome to have my plans and various framing parts that I have completed.

I realize boat building does not dovetail with your current life-plan, but I thought I would offer anyhow.

Cheers,

Steve

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

I bet your grandpa would be very, very proud of you, and very happy to see you back in a nice little boat again! Perhaps keep that nice photo of him on a bulkhead somewhere...

We need more people in the world today with your grandfathers tenacity. It was the men like him who fought like hell to get to this country that made it great, not our politicians or laws.

Steve, it was a Sea Knight. And you are right, at the moment building her would not dovetail with my plans.

However if you want to finish her I'd be welling to lend a hand.

I can promise you that boat finished out is a very fine craft, stable in the water, handles chop well, grandpa drove his with a 35 hp 2 stroke Evinrude, with a 50-60 hp motor that thing would really zing on the water.

It is very tempting for me to take you up on your offer because they are such a good boat.

Re: Renegade Sailing Adventures.

That's different. What did dex do with it this time? You do realise he will not like the confines of the truck over the next few months till you are ready to set sail.
