    Re: Vintage Inboard Cruisers to Centre Console Conversion

    Ouch !!!
    No shame in feelin a bit light headed Gazza, done the same with some real nasty glass cuts over the journey, shock more than anything.

    Dunno whether I mentioned or not, but a month or more back, I slipped on a steep concrete driveway with mould on it, it fair knocked me around I don't mind telling you. Though I'd broken my wrist, landed on my ass cheeks flat on my back, must have hit my head but got up and went and sat down on the customers front patio, and then lay down and passed out, the 90 year old customer was in a panick when I came too. Delayed concussion, shock, I dunno. My wrist come right, had a nice size lump on the back of my head, missed the concrete edging by centimetres. the worse part was the afters, my butt cheeks were seriously sore for a couple of weeks afterwards, had trouble walking. ...

    Chuck your finger in some ice and get ready for it being sore in the morning...

    Now Don't you be using this as an excuse not to be getting more done on the boat tomorrow Gazza, ask your mum for some " toughen up princess" pills, she will no what I mean ....

    Great progress today Gazza, keep at it...

    Lol Col yeah im use to cut hands and skin peeling off my nuckles working on engines but have never had a thick chunk of skin peel back the pic is after i folded the flap back over to stop the bleeding the flap goes to the side of my nail

    Im still going to crack on, at the moment i only have 2x 10mm bunnings bolts in the engine didnt have cash to buy a 12.5-13mm drill bit along with the proper bolts but i'll hopefully have that sorted this week, i checked ebay for some bolts alone $15 each thought bloody not cheap are they

    Hopping to order more resin and 10 meters of double bias this week so i have plenty of glassing to get done

    Going to run some gray paint down the sides of the hull to match the transom but i need to organise the paint and rollers

    Im also going to do a ice box in front of the console in the floor im picturing it taking only about 5 hours in total to complete i just need to cut down my keel stringer to make room, glue in the foam, fillet than glass it all done than a simple lid when the floor goes down

    Go to a dealer or wreckers, they will have a bucket load of second hand ones, if I think of it I will ask my local guy tomorrow and see what he's got.

    Well some people are dumb enough to pay the price, I did a quick google search on stainless bolt suppliers which took about 2 minutes and found a packet of 25 bolts for about $70, ring around the stainless bolt suppliers and ask for how many you need as a lot will sell them individually. Certainly not at that E-Bay price.

    Re: Vintage Inboard Cruisers to Centre Console Conversion

    Not sure, depends on what the outboard manufacturer requires, having said that, since you are bolting the motor to the the transom which hasn't got the best compression resistance capability I wouldn't imagine so, but you need to check that out with a marine dealer and you will need a very large (square?) washer to distribute the compression too. You may also need to put in a (stainless) tube slightly smaller than the thickness of the transom which the bolt will go through to limit the compression as well. The dealer should also be able to tell you.

    Using that composite stuff Gazza, I too have heard about using a spacer because of compression.
    Ypou may need to get your head around that before you jump into it...

    Thanks i'll look into it so far doing up the m10 bolts/nuts with a shifter and 40x40mm plates on the inside they have done up pretty tight without compressing the core material but i havent got a socket on it yet and swung that

    Re: Vintage Inboard Cruisers to Centre Console Conversion

    Just went out the back and measured my transom its 66mm thick how thick is a regular transom?

    I done nothing today just dropped the hoist off i was too buggered from all the stress and root around

    Tomorrow i'll put both rear wheels on the trailer, install the two lower engine bolts and move the trailer forward hopefully

    Cant really do much untill later in the week

    I have a question i ordered a couple of months ago 10 meters of 300gram woven roving instead of wasting it where can i use it? Im thinking maybe under the floor plywood on the underside but if the glass shrinks and curves the plywood not sure if i can straiten it flat again

    I know nothing about metals, but these must be something special. This is the same bolt you saw on eBay, for sale somewhere else, but for half that price - still an expensive bolt
