Jim, hopefully next year, at this time, I will need a small blow boat trailer...for the Haven.  Today I butchered about $200 worth of white oak.  I ordered almost 3 weeks ago.  Picked up Thursday from Fat Andy's. 

Had butchered whoops meant cut out the frames/ribs by 1030.  Hooked up the boiler hose and about attached the threaded coupling to the steam box.  Had the frames attached by 7 pm.  Long day.  Am taking Sunday off and give my back a rest.

Have a safe week.

RSVP thanks for the invite.  We will see you at the show.  Missed you...
Well the boat anyways.  Now, you and Ellen have a Cadillac boat.

Wish I had waited and bought a bigger boat kit from you.  But then again...after the Haven 12 1/2 I will be free free.....well during this build I sure feel O L D E R!



Have a safe week everyone whether on the water....or building.

Thanks Neal!  I'll check with Betsy in the next couple months and see if she has any good pictures and a favorite biography that could be printed up.  I was thinking something about 2' wide by 3' high I could set on an easel in the cockpit.  I already have a 20' long banner that I hang from the gunnels at boat shows.

Jim,

I'd be more than happy to design and print something up and send it your way.  Could be a Banner, or Poster or both for that matter.
Banner's can be 48" x whatever, I've got some nice glossy poster paper that's 36" wide.

Send me idea's, pic's and I'll throw something together.

Neal

Thanks for the info Peter. I didn't realize the end piece might be so long. I wonder if the end of the cable that runs through the helm can be taken off and then run through the conduit backwards?

Yes it is, at least on my Teleflex Safe-T QC it was. Remove the safety pin and push it into the indent near where the cable enters the steering mechanisim. Cable should pull out. This end is much easier to thread thru conduit. Under the deck I'm using PVC electrical conduit as it has quite a large radius 90 degree elbow. Some builders have used 3" but 2" is working for me.

I plan on using the Teleflex rotary NFB system. It will go out the bottom of the console and into one of the several 3" pipes that run under the deck, and come back up into an enclosure at the corner of the transom.

I have the Teleflex rotary NFB on my widebody and am quite happy with it. I don't know if the end piece/motor attachment varies based on what you order, but for my motor there is straight metal shaft about 12" long that would need a pretty sizeable sweep elbow if it were run through conduit (it does not on my boat). I believe Chuck used 3" PVC and used two 45s and then was barely able to get his steering cable through... Just saying it's worth verifying at the conduit installation stage...

I sent in my deposit to do the 2015 Maine Boatbuilders Show in Portland.  The show runs from March 20-22. All are welcome to come up for the day or the weekend, and we'll have the usual get-together at our house on Saturday after the show.

I'm going to send an invitation to Betsy, and I'll make up some sort of memoriam for Renn to display in the boat.  I was thinking about enlarging the pic of him driving Paul's boat, and superimposing the best obit over it.  Something about 2' by 3' I can set up on an easel in the cockpit.

The same goes for anyone visiting Maine.  Stop in for a visit, and if the weather is decent and you have the time, we can arrange a tour of Casco Bay via Tolman Skiff.
