  • Between the Rain Dropw

    Got the boat launched today. Heavy overcast but I missed the rain - Lake is very high. I saw some fishermen but did not get a chance to see how they did. Water temp 54 deg.

    Got a bad wheel bearing so I will wind up doing that job while the weather is crappy. Have not greased them in several years. must have been some good grease and seals last time I did them. I do change the lower gear oil and run the engine out of gas while fogging it and it started in two seconds this spring. Bought the boat new in 1985 and it still runs like new - nock on wood. It still runs up Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_0072.JPG Views:	0 Size:	1.57 MB ID:	771498 close to 6,000 rpm and about 45mph.

    The Lyman is 16.5', center steering I completely finished including the TeeNee trailer. The boat did not have a bad piece of wood in it. All the mahogany stained and varnished perfectly. The boat is in the National Lyman Collectors Club.
    This also has the period correct motor. If I remember it was around '56.
    Very comfortable to fish from. We actually would go out at night and fish all ni Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_1951.JPG Views:	0 Size:	525.7 KB ID:	771500 ght.

    I take my R/C sail boat out and sail it along side the big ones for a while. They get a kick out of it, Mast is about 5' tall and it has 12lbs of lead in the keel. I have it out in 2+ to 3' waves - it goes good.
