Re: My 2nd boat project - 14ft Alumacraft Semi-V

Mr. Giggles, Thanks for the reply and letting me know how stable your floor was, etc. I def think then that my floor shouldn't be a problem, being much lower and only about 5+ inches higher than the actual aluminum flooring. Also good to know what you thought was a max weight, (about 500lbs) which i...

Re: My 2nd boat project - 14ft Alumacraft Semi-V

Mr. Giggles.....Thank you for the post! So glad I finally found someone with the same boat who did some work!! I think you are correct that I have a 80's F7...not a T-14S...as my side Alumacraft decal and everything that I can see on your boat looks the same as on mine, same with stern corner handle...

Re: My 2nd boat project - 14ft Alumacraft Semi-V

I didnt get much of anything done in the boat yesterday, but at least got the floor back into the boat and confirmed the mid seat base fits. Now I can begin building the rest of the side benches/boxes and get all the wiring done. I have 2 weeks to complete this build, before it needs goes back up no...

Re: My 2nd boat project - 14ft Alumacraft Semi-V

As of last night I got the 4 main floor section pieces coated with adhesive and then got the carpet put back on and secured down. It was pretty messy, so didn't get any "action" shots, but just used a trowel and let the adhesive get a bit tacky, then set it face down on a pre-cut piece of carpet and...

Re: My 2nd boat project - 14ft Alumacraft Semi-V

As of last night all my wood is sealed in at least 2 coats of Spar Urethane, so then I moved onto adding back any foam i removed and also added in some additional foam. I think I will get a bit more foam added to one of the bench seats as well, as there should be space. 20190707_163415.jpg 20190708_...

Wolves,
My brother assumes he got the cover from Amazon, but doesn't remember 100%..so chances are they have it, or something similar.

Wolves,
My brother picked up the spare tire cover...I will ask him where he got it and report back.

I see now you have saved (at least) 2 tinboat.com users from a trailer nightmare! Thanks again!

Got the 2nd coat on the floor, and 1st coat on the bench support wood: 20190706_150705.jpg Then after the floor dried, I laid out my remaining carpet from my previous build and realized I have much less than I thought...but did get the 4 floor pieces cut and wrapped. 20190706_190833.jpg 20190706_191...

Re: My 2nd boat project - 14ft Alumacraft Semi-V

Wolves, Thank you for this reply!!. Even when put my newer crank on there and tighten'd it up, it i could easily lift/move the boat off the trailer, and just thought, "i guess this rope is junk... I will have to get a new belt and replace the rope and that will do it.." but now actually looking at i...
