Hi Aaron,

I really like the A-boxes they suit the chairs perfectly. I was looking at doing something similar (well making my own seats as well) do you have any plans or drawings of the A-boxes?
They will look really nice when painted.

Hey Will,

No plans sorry. I build them specifically to match the profile of the seats.

Will be much easire for you if you are making the seats too. It too lots of trial and error to get the A-box profile to match the seat backs.

Happy to take some measurements if it help you any.

Thats all good I am a long way of needing seats anyway.

Still gotta do the stringers and the trailer, not to mention the work the 850 needs.

I think I will be able to smash something out when I get to that point. I do like the way you have done them though

Is it 10mm ply they are built from?

Hi Gang,

This is my 'lack of progress' update!

Capricious has stalled.

A few big work and relationship changes in life, plus my damn shoulders, have left me with little time.

Fortunately/unfortunately, depending on how I'm thinking about it, my first shoulder reco is happening this Tur with the right planned for as soon as the left is up and running again (12 weeks'ish). For you Andrew A, I'm getting left Arthro subacromial decompression + ACJ excision + whatever else they find while in there  Sad

Poor old Capricious is not going to move along or get any love for a little while.

So my request to you guys is that someone has to really get motoring with their project and post lots of pictures so I can live vicariously through you.

Oh no...

Is the beloved getting the jack of your project....?

My beloved Hartley doesn't need anything done, but I'm happy to do some postings just to cover you!

Sadly I've mostly been boating with a mate in his modern fiberglass boat with  mercruser 8l V 8 over recent times, but  would love to take the old girl out.

Andy, not the newest news and I hinted to it in my above post, but the only beloved in my life these days is Capricious... and the loss of the other was not boat related!

I thought running solo again would have helped get more time on Capricious, but alas, I'm home less than ever right now filling my waking hours up with as much work, fiends and family as I can. Not to mention the shoulders being uncooperative.

Aaron, I've obviously missed a bit there.  Sorry to hear it.

 With your extra time, perhaps now the twins can get the attention, they require.  Cheesy

I've been keeping abreast of Aarons woe's by phone & PM's in recent times. The poor fella is having a rough trot at present.
Aaron, I'm sure all your fellow Boardies wish you a speedy recovery (in all aspects) Smiley Smiley

By the way, you know I'm always available to play with your twins until you're up and about again. Grin

We are all behind you mate and we hope you are up and about very quickly following your first op' Cool

Hello Aaron ,
I interpreted your succinct post as it was meant.
Being capricious as you are ,time will heal.
My best wishes to you.
Another problem is what to do with the magnificent photo on Sydney Harbour  Grin Sad
I do hope you leave it there as part of 'The Project '.

Aaron,

Hoping the shoulder op goes well. I thought you were a youngster-what has happened to your shoulders to need a decompression etc..

Shoulder ops at least allow some tinkling at low levels, so the twins might get some attention. Not sure about capricious though.

As to the rest of  your life - nows a great time to focus on somethIng specific,  and doing up the twins isn't a dumb suggestion.

And, beyond that, if you need some professional input, give me a yodel.

Hey guys.

Neil, the photo can stay. I'm not that preciousness about a breakup that I need to hide things. All good here and I'll find a better replacement at some stage... take that as you may  Cool

Andy, I am young... 42 years young!

The shoulders are a result of 27 years of overdoing it in the gym. I don't know the medical terms, but did way too much as 15yo when I was still growing and had some kind of calcification thingy going on. Then most of the damage was done in my 20's and early 30's when I tried my hand at body building. Throw in some ignoring advise on my side, a bit of misdiagnosis over the years (damn physios) and my tenancy to 'not' do things by halves and I'm sure you get the idea.

As for focusing elsewhere... thank you shoulders...

Seriously though, all totally good here. Work, keeping fit, friends and family have all helped and no point wallowing around as life ain't going to wait for me!!! Onward and upward I say...

Enough of that though... back to boats  Grin

Question:

I have my pair of 64 650's and the ceased 67 650. Are all, or most, of the bolt-on parts off the 67 compatible with the 64's?

My comment re Aaron and capricious goes back to 'None of us on the 'Board ' are capricious ref Early Model 40 hp Oct 2010.
'Good bedside manner' Don't cut too deep and if you don't know refer to a specialist. ?

Hi gang,
How is everyone? Long time hey!?
I'm still here and Capricious is still covered and in moth-balls... unfortunately...

You know I had my shoulder recos just over a year ago (left 31 May and right 4 July). Unfortunately the right has not worked so well. We're not really sure why. Likely a combination of factors starting at a bleeding issue right out of surgery through to me overdoing it (yes AGAIN) in recovery/rehab. Suffice to say where the work was done (mostly AC joint) it did not form the required scar tissue and the shoulder has not regained its stability. So I'm back in for a couple more operations (redo the AC, transplant/reposition a ligament and getting some temporary titanium hardware to hold it all together). The first is in 3 weeks and then another about about 4 months later. Yeah me (sarc)... another 12 months minimum of rehab...

Needless to say poor old Capricious is to continue to be ignored.

What I wanted to ask is can any recommenced a decent cover that would fit her? The ones on Ebay, though having the required length, I'm just not sure how they will fit the unusual hull shape. She's spot on 13ft, but It'd be good if the cover could handle covering the motor also (was thinking to get a cover suited to a 15-14ft boat).

Any thoughts?

What's wrong with MYO cover.....give that the project is almost MYO boat  and motors anyway.

PS  Use canvas . It breathes. Waterproof nylons etc get condensation, which drips down into the boat.

Shoulders don't sound so happy though......
