Custom Boat Rigging

5 posts in this topic

I am looking for someone to do some custom boat rigging. I have a 1980 16' Sylvan Sea Monster. I want to add a livewell and some hidden storage compartments. I would like to redesign the stern area to accomaodate the livewell and storage compartments and add a larger gas tank. Does anyone know of someone who does this type of work? I live in the metro area, but have no problem traveling to get this done. Please help!

There is a guy up by Ottertail who does this type of work, He does a good job, have seen some of his finished products. I believe it is called "The Boat Works". I do not have his number, but it should be listed in the New York Mills area.

Might want to check with Stan Berry at Custom Rigging in White Bear Lake. I had some work done by them and was really impressed. Phone # 651-426-9752.

Howdy brunziej...

Drop me an email and we'll talk. I'm located in the southwest metro. (Chaska area) I've done a few mods like what you're talking about and am willing to take a peek at your project if you'd like. Most of my work has been on Lunds. Flat floor conversions, casting decks w/ hatches, rod lockers, battery storage boxes, custom built-in tanks....

    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
    • I'm starting to wonder about my wife, she bought me a suit lined with lead. Now she's trying to convince me it's for the xrays in the sun.?.
    • Here is the p/n of the screws I used from Fastenal.  #0148433  #10 flat head self drilling screw x1-1/4" long.  I'm sure Northern States supply or other places can match them up as well, I have an account and paid about $0.09 each.  Pre drill the wood so it doesn't crack.  I installed with an impact driver.  Try and keep your fir strips straight and at nominal dimensions it sure helps with the second layer of installation.  For reference I used about 350 screws to fir a 8x16 Yetti.

    • I ended up going with the 870, in synthetic stock. I realize the wingmaster is a much better built gun, but truth be told, for alot of the hunting we do for grouse each fall, I think the express will give him many years of good shooting.  And I'm guessing that for our big trip(s) out west for pheasant, he will be shooting either my Browning O/U or the Wingmaster.   I really wanted him to have a gun that was truly "his", that he can learn to strip down and clean from bore to stock, and these 870's are a perfect one to cut his teeth on.   Thanks for all the input everyone!!  I'm guessing two weeks from sunday, we will be hitting the grouse woods in the afternoon to give it its inaugural run!!
