Default Project Activator

I've been following this project Wave to Wave is doing, restoring an old 22 Activator. Always liked the small outboards. They have a couple episodes so far.

I like the idea of the project. But would like to see the actual work being performed. Would help educate people on the correct way to do the work. Just My 2c.

Ya, I agree. We appreciate the feedback too. This week there was a little delay in getting some materials, so I thought I'd do this episode to fill the space, but next week and following we will be more in the shop with hands on stuff.

Episode 5 is up, In this episode we move things to the shop, where we look at the transom and stringer install. We talk about how the stringers were formed to fit perfectly to the hull, bonded in place, and we used 2408 fiberglass to glass everything in. The resin used is a proprietary resin Mark at Rage Powerboats likes to use. We also discuss the fuel tank plans and putting in the reinforcing tabs.

Here's a few shots of the process not in the video. I was out of town while Mark was doing some of it.
