Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2

Do not have any pictures tonight just an update. Flow was bearing down on us and I needed the trailer to get my first project off the lift at the coast and safe at home. In order to do that I had to clear out the shop. Since I was moving things with chain falls I went ahead and put the console and s...

Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2

Spent last week finishing my storage boxes and working on helm parts. Got the two parts of the helm glued together and started glassing it yesterday. The seat part is almost ready to be glassed as well. I ended up building a cooler to go between the helm chairs and built it into the structure. Will ...

Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2

I had never heard of nitrous on a boat either but after some research discovered that is is used by a lot of diesel truckers and diesel hot rodders. It only works if you have excess fuel that is leaving the engine unburned. I thro...

Re: 28 Bertram Restoration Boat 2
