new to tins :)

If you post the serial # the measurements (Length and the widest width) I and or others may be able to help. The number may be cross referenced to a "MIC" number the coast guard has established for boat manufactures. If it is too old other searches may be required.

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Thanks BrazosDon, There are still several things that need to be done. My work schedule is keeping me away but it looks like this weekend is open. The tough thing is that it is with me at work and I walk past it several times each day. The good and bad news is that spring is still a long way off hal...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Spent my Sunday gluing carpet and getting things ready to start the final assembly. There is still a lot of fitting and odds and ends but it is really starting to come together. I have to trim some of hatches because they are very tight but the beard trimmer should get me the clearances I need. I wi...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

After letting the weight work on the carpet for just short of 24 hours we glued the edges using 3M 1099 adhesive because it dries quickly and sticks very well. I used stainless steel staples to help hold the edges tight while it dryed. We then dropped the peices in place and called it a day. I am ve...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Started in on the carpet today. We started with the bow deck, the bow floor and the mid section floor. We just glued the flat surface and will glue and wrap the edges after the flat area is dry. We used a bakers roller to apply initial application pressure and then put sheets of wood on top to distr...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Started back into the project today after about a week off. It got up to a blistering 39 today so I pulled out the barrel and dropped the new (1963) motor in it. This motor has not been run in over 25 years according to the seller. I drained the gear case and everything looked good, no water or meta...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Hey 798hand,
We are just starting to build them for production. I think it will be around 6 to 8 weeks before my boss will let me sell any. We have a standing order for almost as many as we can make as of today. I will let you know when they come available.

1980 LOWE 16' total rebuild

That is a bad a** boat. Your hard work and attention to details has left you with a very useable and great looking tin. Now the question....whats next?

14 foot project.

That looks like it could be a 16' Lund. That color above the splash rail looks like Lund to me. Anyway let the fun begin. FYI you can screw into the ribs in the bottom and use stainless sheet metal screws if you come from the top (be sure they are not too long) or you can go thru the sides of the ri...

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Do you feel that that 18 hp does the job? I hope that my '63 it will allow me to get on plane. I will have to wait for a few months because we are icing up around here. That was a great deal you found there. They don't make em like that any more, so hold on to them.

Q-14 (semi V) AeroCraft Project

Thanks BrazosDon,
I have to get back to work on it, there is sooo much to do. I see you have a couple older OMC motors. I have been very pleased with that older iron they tend to be reliable, easy to work on, great looking and you can still get parts. How do you like yours? Thanks for the nice words.
