Re: Birmingham RB14

My dad and I learned some valuable lessons today.
  • Just how poorly a 14' boat fits in a 20' garage.

Re: Birmingham RB14

My dad and I got down and dirty yesterday. We grinded/sanded down the stringers so they would conform to the hull shape better. http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/77120/IMG_3794.jpg Then we built some quick jigs from 2x4's to hold each station in place and draped the whole thing in tarpaulin...

You're more organized than I. I've only kept up with costs. I think it's because I'm subconciously aware of how disappointed I am in my rate of progress.

Re: Birmingham RB14

I got a Google alert in my email for an outboard that fit my specifications: A 1959 35hp Johnson Super Sea Horse. And he only wanted $200! He had that and a similar motor as a parts donator.
