Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

So last night I decided to set the motor on it to see how it looked and get an idea of what I wanted to with the transom cap, and yeah it looked great :D but... like an idiot, I thought I should pull the cowl and see how it looks since it has been in storage now for over a year. I grab the release a...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

I am going to leave the seats the length they are which is a bit long. They have seasoned now for nearly 3 years and oak tends to be pretty dimensionally stable which is just one of the reasons it is so highly prized for boat building. Hopefully, they won't shrink much but if they do it should be fi...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

You are right about the sandblaster, I kept thinking about it but didn't pull the trigger on it because I was worried the media would be too expensive. When all was said and done though it would likely have been about the same and taken half as long. I would be really interested to hear from any of ...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

Well, that and some family issues but back at it, I am. got the seats back from my friend that was helping me with them that is hand cut western O...

Re: Would you run this prop?

Look around your area you can likely find a welding shop that can do prop repair. Mine was in way worse shape and my local shop fixed it for $60. They even Tig welded additional material were there was a big chunk missing out of mine. Worked like new until a buddy ran it up on a sandbar and bent it ...

Re: 1960 ish 12' starcraft

All masked off and ready to go for tomorrow. I am doing it in coat-it after talking to several driftboat builders that know way more than I do about protecting aluminum boats. I have to wait until tomorrow night when the temperature drops below the 90 deg. It has been today. https://uploads.tapatalk...

1960 ish 12' starcraft

So the family went over to the coast for a little quick git away, and I just happened by the marine supply in Newport and got everything to keep rolling. I got two new keel rollers on adjustable mounts so I can get everything lined up much easier and super heavy duty galvanized, also all the hardwar...

Re: scotty rod holder's?

Yeah the side mounts are cheap and they just work right. So much easier than trying to piece something together.
