  • 241 Getting Started...

    After almost 14 years the 224 has found a new owner [:0][]. The best way to get over a beloved usable project is to dive into a new usable project.

    When brought home...



    After yesterdays wetsanding fun...



    The blue boot-stripe came off easy, and this bottom paint is easier than the 224. I will do what I can easily access, but have no desire/intention to block and lie underneath this beast. Yesterday was done by hand (I hurt), but I will be getting disks and new air DA; the old one got tossed after 224. I was able to smooth out where name was, and will finish out sides following Dodge's steps; 3M Marine Compound and Finishing Material, 3M Finesse It, & Colinte Marine Wax.

    I have a growing list of new add one coming soon;

    SS pull-up cleats

    New Garmin with Chirp Transducer

    New VHF and antenna

    New Fusion Head Unit with Kicker speakers

    Once I get new LED lights and switch panel the wiring will begin.

    I will likely be listing the Yamaha's very soon, selling as a complete package; motors, props, rigging, and steering.

      Nice Chuck! Does this boat need any major work? recore or tanks?

      Any plans for the bow rail?

      Seems like its been years since you've worked on a boat. Those sanding arms must be sore [] (I'll joke now, before my kids are the same age as yours and I'll be in the same boat)...

        Nice Chuck. If you need a couple of stands I have some, as well as a slightly used blue tarp that's yours if you want it.

          I do not suspect anything major in immediate future. I will absolutely be removing the bow rail, and will find someone to repair those holes long with a few others (oil tank fills, placard rivets, etc...). The boat really seems to be very solid and I know the 26 year old tank will be an issue, but I would like to get rigged, used, and deck bloodied before anything major.

                  Cool chuck..! Considering a thru hull transducer with the new garmin?? I have the new garmin 93 sv ( love it) but loose bottom at any speed over 10 to 15 mph.. spoke to Garmin and that big-ass Puck transducer common problem especially with the bracketed boat mine positioned perfectly but a thru hull would solve it

                      Get an electric DA unless you have a dual stage...I switched all my stuff over.

                        Looks good chuck -- what grit were you using to strip that paint and did you use easy-off first?

                        Keep it up [:I]

                            Andy - I did not think about transducer and bracket interference. Once I am up and running I plan on upgrading (larger) Garmin and maybe transducer too now. I do not remember model, but currently have transom mount Garmin Chirp.

                            Ryan - I am limited on space/storage, and after 224 transom/bottom I downgraded compressor. I discovered earlier this week that my compressor is not big enough to properly run air DA. I'll likely use electric on 400 grit, and higher grit 1000 & 2000 continue by hand; wet sanding and electricity doesn't seem like best option.

                            Justin - I did bust out the Easy-Off. I hit starboard side with a can, let sit while I cut grass, and then hit with powerwasher. It really broke up the blue boot stripe and it came right off. The bottom apparently has layers and I could see paint coming off, so I'll likely hit 1 more time before I sand bow area.

                            Immediate project is figure out how to replace this cross member with boat on trailer...



                            I replace front L beam to install keel bunks, but bunk brackets do not fit the I beam. I have all the parts, just have to figure out how with boat on trailer.





                            I need to be able to splash to sell running motors. I know if I want to sell these older motors I need to have on boat and let potential buyer run.
