Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Make sure you're using bunks on trailer.Hate for one of those rollers to pop a hole when you hit a hole.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I wouldn't want to be the one that puts the first scratch on her.You might have to hire "OLE OLSON" from Ole's boat scratching service.

Re: Bob from Battle Ground wa.

I would extend the boat a couple of feet.Gets a little cramped with larger folks.Is a fun little boat tho.I couldn't get the 3/8 ply to bend around bow so went with 2 layers of 1/4 over all.Have fun and show lots of pics :D

Re: Acrylic Window Installation

You could enclose glass edge in frames larger than your window openings.Mount on outside,put hinges on top of frames-allowing to be opened for ventalation.Maybe screens inside to keep bugs from getting in. :D

Re: Acrylic Window Installation

I tried to put plexi in "Chug".By the time I got it in,it was so scratched up so went with tinted safety glass cut by the seller(rv dealer)Was more spendy(100 bucks a pop)but worth it.You got to install so wave won't push it out if you get into a storm . :D

Re: mystery motor problem

Now I got another problem:Power trim motor doesn't go more than halfway up.Had it down at shop and they can't figure it out either.Trying to add more lube gets me nowhere.Follow advise on Youtube to fill, but still doesn't move.Doesn't leak fluid so no cracks anywhere.Motor whines-just doesn't pump....

Re: Chugalug's BoJest

I pulled it once and found little crack.When I ground that out,wood was dry so filled and sanded with epoxy total fair.I thought when I filled all the tanks(fuel & water) it would leak faster.Nope! I can live with that I guess-got auto bilge pump in case but water hasn't even touched that yet.
