    Default Rigging school

    I would like to start a Knowledge based thread, where we can Share information, ask questions and show off the cool rigging ideas that so many of You possess.
    I know that I am constantly searching for Ideas for rigging and information on different specifications for rigging. It gets to be alot of searching and not allways finding a quick answer and I thought that if We had a central place to find alot of that info , it would be quicker for all of Us to find what We are looking for.
    So if You have a question about rigging or have invented a cool bracket or part, please post them up.

    Now SHARE AWAY!

    I'm not here for a long time, I'm just here for a good time!
    If your not on the edge.......your taking up too much room......Drive it like you stole it!

    rule number one: use the holes that are already in the boat before you drill any new ones. Ask Busby about how many holes were in his boat when he got it.

    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THAT IS RULE #1!!!!!!!!!!!

    OMG ... if I never do that again, it'll be too soon


    This was just the driver seat area:



    That turned into this:




    Please never put anyone thru what I went thru ... use the holes that are already there and never, ever, ever just "hog" out the hole a little to make the bolt fit. Do it right the first time and it'll be much cleaner.

    I'm sure there's a way to "Archive" the threads. Some other forums I'm on have a Sticky thread, with links for "how to do it yourself" threads that had alot of good info on them.

    The trick would be to start the sticky thread now, and add post to it as sites continue, such as your thread Hal would make a great Bottom blue printing thread to Archive

    Todd did a lot of work bring it back from the condition it was in. Had many "Yuma Years" on it lol (not baggin on ALL Yuma boat riggin jobs ... just this one for sure)

    Rigging it with precision and care this time ... no rushing is key. At times it gets old hearing others bag on you for how long it's taking ... but when you want to do it right vs. "throwing it together" and having to re-do it later ... it pays off in results.

    I will have plenty of pics sooner or later, and I hope the results are impressive.

    Back to class.

    Rule #2: Take your time & do it right.

    When we rigged the Cheyenne, we used some cheap plastic hose to layout all the fuel and water lines before we cut up the nice real lines. Made a few various brackets and stuff as well for other things. I will post some pics when I get some.

    Default Seat brackets

    I made some seat brackets from 4"x4"x1/4" aluminum angle. What size should the holes be to bolt to the stringers and what size for the seats themselves?

    I used 3/8" for bracket to stringer(two per seat) and 5/16" for seat to brackets(four per seat, two into each bracket)

    And I thought mine was full of holes. I only counted 48. Unfortunately I didn't
    have the foresight to snap a picture before the patching had commensed. Also
    didn't have the benefit of Todd's skills and had to do it myself.

    Curious as to what a "half a hole" looks like......... Was it only drilled
    half way through........or was it half round-wise?

    during



    after

    Hey Busby, How was the wood under the glass,with all those holes exposed? Were the stringers still real solid, without any delamination of the glass from the wood?
    My next project is a tunnel and the stringers have a few holes, but not as many as Your's. The sringers feel solid, but is hard to tell what condition the wood itself is in.
