    Default Glencoe/River Rescue build

    Last year before the '07 season was out, I think it was while we were testing for the Thanksgiving Regatta at Rotory Park in Bullhead the PD asked us if we knew of anyone for towing on the water. I mention one company I knew of. They said that I should think about it. I did over the winter and we desided a few extra bucks couldn't hurt. So we started with a open bow Spectra 20. As we were stripping the boat we found that it had some dry rot. I began removing the damaged wood and removed some more and more and more, you get the picture. We kept trucking along on it in between work. The a Glencoe pops up in the boat spam section. It had a lot of good parts that came with it as well as a pump. So we bought it. It was not quite what we had expected but for the price I was happy with the deal. As we start to check things out on it we find it needs a new floor. No biggy easy enough. So we remover the old 3/4" plywood floor to find it rotted and the keel board broke loose from the boat. OK no biggy, we began removing everything. Then started over. First set of pics are what we bought.

    I can't find the demo pics. Here are some as the construction phases got rolling. I believe the glass I used was 7140 in between the keelboard and stringers. As you can see this boat now has a keelboard and 2 stringers. I also installed a rib for extra striegth.

    As you can see a 190lbs man can fit into the forward most part of the hull past the rib.

    That yellow boat was posted up in this forum's boat spam section as being free... I thought about picking it up but then I felt like I was being a dick because I was just going to part it out after picking it up. It's good to see you're not only bringing it back to life but you're actually going to put it to work. Good luck with the project.

    Yah Todd that is the plan as this boat will be abused. What you can't see is the keel is carried all the way up to the cap. I cut and fitted a 2x4 and then glassed it in.

    We have been kicking around the idea of putting a crows nest above the light bar. I will have a fire hose on board for sure.

    Well being this is a service boat we needed a very durable coating on the floor that bonds well. We chose to use a 2 part epoxy garage floor paint. It covered very well, one coat. The kit we used will cover 250sq' and we used about 99.5% of it.







    Now for the engine, it is a .020 Sterling cast piston 460BBF, Some may reconize it when I say the junk yard 460. It has a Crane 272 Power Max camshaft with a Stealth intake and a Edelbrocke 750 carb.

    Here is the plan, but where it is white it will be silver metalic, and where it is grey it will be white. I will have a small pin stripe of yellow included somehow. I plan on getting the highly reflective vinyl for the decals on the side. At least that is the plan right now.
