Well, this is going to be a big week in anticipation of the warmer season to come! We are getting the '62 Shasta "Airflyte" painted, and finalizing a few projects on the '74 Glastron "Swinger."
We took the Glastron boat out at Bartlett Lake this last Sunday, tested the new Mercury, "Tower of Power," 115 HP motor we had put on. Runs a lot smoother, faster, and better than the Johnson 115 we had on previously. This motor is nasty! Purr's like a tiger, the throttle control is smooth and effortless, and overall, just runs much better. Very happy with that move.
Water is still very cold, but it was a lovely, 80 degree, slightly overcast morning/afternoon out at the lake.
Here are some pics from Bartlett...
The boat still needs the new ladder put on, the tilt & trim installed, the new windows fixed & installed, and some electrical wiring done before it's 100% finished.
Friday, I'll go up the hill to Cottonwood, near Sedona, and grab the Shasta, bring her here to the compound here in Scottsdale, & get 'er ready for painting. I have to do a lot of prep work- Sanding, priming, tape, etc. to save some $$ and make sure the job is done right. I'll post some juicy pics when she's all finished.
Respectfully yours- ERIC
