I've meant to add the photo bucket link again anyway. Not sure if you'll be able to see them here either, but there's more pics in there than I post in here.
Here's the link to the rebuild folder. There's two other folders for the boat also.[/quote]

Wow man,
It is an afternoon well spent looking at all your amazing projects.

Thank you

Nice looking buggy. Those can be a lot of fun. Yep, as you can see by all the picture folders I stay busy.

Well folks, I think I'm going to stay out of the boat for a few days. It's starting to feel more like a job at this point, and I don't want it to turn into that even though I'm close to finishing the re structuring. I'm going to go work on some of the bike projects for a few days and level myself out again. Besides that, it's tax time. Lets hope I get enough back to complete more on the boat. I'll of coarse keep up on the forum each day.

That IS a nice looking project 737. I'd like to see more of it (somewhere else) and get some details on the fibreglass.

BUT, you're hi-jacking the thread :P

No, I'm talking about the vent in the head. Mine has a blower box attached to the inside of the vent you see there that has blue tape over it. I have a blower vent motor mounted under the cabinet behind the toilet with a 3" flex hose attached. Sorry the picture is sideways I tried to rotate it but no luck.

Unfortunately, the vent window in my head doesn't open to the outside of the boat. When it's opened it vents right into the main cabin unless the sliding window is open. I'm hoping to find a way to fix this design someday.
The small window in the berth IS leaking though. I noticed it the other day when I was covering the front of the boat up. It's probably going to be difficult to find a replacement bezel for it since it's cracked. Just another future project to add to the list.

Here you can see the window in the head.

You can see the reflection of it in the sliding window. This design stinks! :side:

I have the same window (not pictured) which is located above the taped off vent hole shown. I was pretty sure it was factory but clearly not. I can see if I have a better picture if you would like to see it?

I'm talking about my 1980 model year (made in 1979) Victoria. I took it out of my signature because I'm in the process of stripping it and getting it ready for the scrap yard. I'll see if I can find a picture or two of the exhaust vent.

With Wayne dismantling his Victoria, and with Larry resurrecting his........ perhaps we should set aside a day for "last rights" and a "christening" celebration! :D

Wayne, I'm sure I could use a few trinkets off the boat before it goes to scrap. PM me and I'll give you my # so I can see what is still there.

I'm almost caught up with the side stuff so I can get back to work on the boat. I keep looking out the window at it and realized I was missing being out there. But after several days of getting tax stuff ready, I'm really ready to get back in there. It won't be today, but soon.

I finally got around to looking for a picture of that vent but didn't find one. With regards to tear down; I have pulled the radar, motor, and outdrive. Unfortunately, the season is quickly approaching so getting the Trophy ready for Halibut is going to be my top priority and tear down on the Victoria won't happen for awhile. When I do start to dismantle it in earnest I will announce it here on the site.

Continued success on your project, you’re doing a great job! B)

Since this rebuild is going to take me a while, it's good to know I have time till it goes to the scrap yard.

OK, it's been a long week with getting LOTS of things done that needed attention. Taxes are done as well as doing the spring cleaning early. Yesterday I climbed in the boat and formed one of the starboard stringers. I started out to form the next one but knew that at some point I needed to finish grinding the hull and the port side where the floor had been joined in under the sink cabinets. We all know how much I love grinding, but I got in there, turned the grinder up on high and got it over with. It's a good feeling to know that 99% of it is all done now. The biggest section left to grind and smooth out will be the hull wall in the bathroom so I can smooth it off and get it ready to cover with bilge coat of gel coat. But for now I'm satisfied that I can get back to work finishing up the structuring.

Here's the ground down final section of the hull ready for new stringers and bulkheads. Notice that I put one of the cushions back in for a test fit. It's a soft place to sit when I take a break too. :cheer:

OK, I'll update again when I get more done. I'm going to balance between other things I should be doing and the boat project since I'm convinced this project is not going to be back in the water this summer. I'm not going to rush it just to get it wet again. I want it all done the way it should be before it leaves the backyard.

This section of the rebuild has several things to build that separate compartments. So I'm going to do all the stringers first and then move to the bulkheads. I'm back at it till the next interruption.

Along those lines, here's another bite taken today. I got up early to try getting two more stringers built today. But after I got the port side one done the inside of the boat was 92+ degrees. Turning the fans on just made it hotter because the boat is still fully covered. So I'm going to wait till evening when the shade covers the boat again and it cools down inside. It's supposed to cool down and rain in a few days so it should be much more comfortable by then. Were in the low 70s here right now.

Lap joint cut to match and fitted to the hull.

I know, but it's a lot easier to warm it up than it is to cool it down.

Nope, they were showing last years race for a while to entertain everyone. They just said it'll be a few more hours at least before they restart, IF at all.

Yea just noticed that. Been playing on the computer and walking the dog since it's 50's here. Not really into the TV today.

You're one dedicated person :)

I just want to get back on the water. Hopefully by the end of March :cheer:

I'm trying to stay dedicated to getting this done, but I don't think it's going to see the water again for quit a while. As anal as I'm being with the structure should give you insight as to the length of time I'll spend on the rest of the boat. :unsure:

Working in this section is taking a toll on me with the steeper angle of the hull. I was working on the next support piece when I slipped on the wood dust and wrenched my right knee last night. I'd like to come up with something that keeps me stable while sitting in there, but I think just pushing through and getting it done will be my best bet. 6'2" makes is tough to sit in small ares like this.

This is the floor support that is just under the bathroom door way. It's also part of the showers water collection compartment. Not quit finished fitting it yet, but I'm hoping to finish that and the Stb. side stringer by days end.

Looking good Larry! I will be doing transom on mine soon and am learning quite a bit from following your thread. Loving the pics you've been posting also! You will no doubt have the best built Victoria on the water (hope no one takes offense) keep up the great work, and ice up that knee :S
Great job!

So, after procrastinating as long as I could today and talking to myself, I know, they have medication for that, I thought about the one thing I was told growing up, and what I told my sons too. "Man Up And Quit Sniveling about the small aches and pains". OK Mom OK! :)
So I climbed in and finished the floor support fairly quickly since it was almost done already. Then it was time to make the last Strb. side stringer. I picked up the port side stringer and checked it in the strb. side location, backwards of coarse. Hmm, it fits! OK, so I traced it onto the DF wood beam that I already had the lap joint cut into and cut it out with a slight angle cut. To my surprise it fit pretty close. Lets see, if that shape fit ok, then maybe copying the other side will work too. So I traced the outside higher angle on it and ground it down to the line I traced onto it. Test fitting it only required about 5 minutes of fitting it in place perfectly. The time it took to make this stringers reverse copy only took about an hour. And, with no added injury to the knee! Woohoo!

Here's the port stringer sitting next to the strb. stringer ready to be traced and copied.

Now that all the stringers and the one support is made I'm going to finish up the layers of glass and tabs on the bulkhead so I can get these bonded in place and laser level the top of them for the flooring level. I'm also going to fill all the chines with the resin paste so it's easier to lay the glass over these pieces. There's not much working room between a couple of these. So I want to just lay the mat/cloth nice and level without fighting the chines. I learned that isn't fun already.

Ready to move forward with the hard part finished.

That's one of things about wood working, the more you do the better you become at know how to work with it to get the shapes you want.
By the time you finish you'll be an expert :)

Pretty damn close already :lol:

I feel you pain about being tall and working in tight places being 6' 3" myself.
