16 ft Jumbo V summer project

Post by water bouy » 22 Aug 2017, 12:55

Got a few pieces covered and one hatch installed. Weldwood contact cement seems to work well with vinyl.

The Nikon digital camera I use suffers from "barrel distortion" which warps everything. The hatches are going on top.

The boat project has slowed to a crawl between work and chasing whatnots. It's rated for a 40 so I looked around for the lightest one I'm aware of and turned it into a tiller.

Thanks Duke. I like vinyl and aluminum composite panels. Even though they cost more up front you only have to do it once.

That electric start 40 Mariner weighs 160 lbs on my bathroom scales. Wish I could say the same.

The rear bench sits so low there's no way to get cables under it to the batteries up front so I'm thinking of a 1 1/4" hole all the way through it and run wiring inide the compartments. It needs the battery cable, trolling motor cable, light wire and fish finder wire. I'll pipe through the bench and bush each end unless there's a reason not to do it. I'm guessing it wouldn't compromise the strength of the bench?

Ditto ... marine vinyl is AWESOME! My rig is 20-years old this year and after a good pressure washing ... it looks like new!

Today felt like spring so I uncovered the boat and cut two pieces for the front benches and one for the bow. Last year I rattle canned the inside a white color to keep it cool in the sun. This project may be ready by the time I'm too old to fish. So far I bought 4 sheets of 6mm alum composite panels weighing 45 lbs each, almost identical to 1/2" plywood. A good thing on such a light boat.

Looks good bud. I got a lot of things going on too. Priorities, right. Good to see you got the cover off the boat.

Thanks, nc. I think working on it is almost as much fun as fishing.

The deep cycle battery is going up front but I'm debating where to put the starting battery. Side by side would be ideal to counter the weight in the back.

Came across a good tutorial on wiring but no charger is mentioned.

Minn Kota makes an on-board charger that looks good.

Cut a piece this morning and mocked it up before the rain got here.

Been making rod holders out of a piece of starboard I got off ebay.

Doubled up on the panels for the front hatch. The lift support works better than expected.

I hope the fish appreciate all this work.

Thanks guys. I just hope the fish don't move away before it's done.

Today I cut in a vertical hatch to use all that space under the bow. Been looking around for a bow light and socket without much luck. Those stick-on strips looked good and then found out they're not approved by the coast guard I guess. It needs to be the post type higher than the trolling motor.

Re "Barrel distortion". Pretty much every camera, other than "view" cameras, have that issue. Don't worry about it.

Most people who view digital pictures are so used to it that they don't even see it.
