We need a "Spring Stream Yacht Club" flag

$40 help me make up my mind.

The light up front has a hole for a pole, thats all.
I have tried to understand what holds the pole in place?
I see nothing, no threads, no set screw, and hole is a slight taper?
Any ideas?

Flag plan today, subject to change, is...
Pennant Pirate flag up front
American RR
Checkered or Rebel LR

I think everone on ebay is watching us...
Seems like as soon as I start bidding on something, the price skyrockets.
Try to buy a surface mount 35 speedo...last week $10, this week $90

It is meant for a tapered wood pole. Available new in any marine catalog.

A bomb load of photos

Look under Classic Motorhomes (years)

Try this link
http://www.airforums.com/photos/brow...&searchid=5418

I don't have them very organized, as they get mixed up with other events.


What keeps the wood pole from coming out?
Just a tight fit?
Last trip out with the 60 was kinda eventful, doubt it would have stayed in.

Heres a good grouping...
A trip last October to Alberquerque<sp has lot of Liberator photos mixed in.
You don't have to search, and its not the same thing over and over.

Found a flush mount 35 speedo that looks kinda retro.
Just hate to make a hole in my dash.
If yo alread have a hole...this may be usable.
$56

"Evinrude Johnson 35 MPH Mechanical Speedometer- 3""": USBoatSupply

Black or white face
Shows tach, but is speed.

Too modern, man!

Mine is one of these, but it's the dash mount version. I bet you could get everything you need out of this one to make a dash mount, though, and run an airline to the rear of the boat.

eBay Motors: Unique Airguide Speedometer (item 300188577889 end time Jan-14-08 07:47:38 PST)

I know what you mean about getting outbid on an item! It's the time of year.

My father-in-law was a flight engineer aboard a 24 in WWII, he has a bomb from one sans explosives.

My wife's Uncle Bob was a Co-Pilot on one in WW2 also. He flew out of England at the very end of the war. The B-24 is a very nice aircraft.

War Floor

Heres the latest on floor...
All the way back now.
Still have to trim the front section, and screw'em all down.
The glue is N/G for transom, polyethylene is tough to bind.
Did some exp with heat...can be welded if heat is just right.
Gonna try that before going to wood.

Plan to put foam under seats and pop rivet a aluminum base on top.
Want lots of floatation.

man, i need to catch up! I just cut the new transom pieces from hard maple yesterday. I'll try to get some pics today. I'm not going to seal it until I get all the holes drilled for mounting, so I can seal inside the holes as well.

After that, i'm starting on the wood dash. Can't wait! Then I can look into the motor issue. It's frozen. I don't know what it could be, when i fort got it, I could pull it over a few times, worked fine, now all of a sudden , it won't turn at all, and the motor is in neutral, so I don't know what it could be. Any thoughts?

I've had luck with laying down the motor on it's face, pulling out the sparkplugs and spraying WD-40 into cylinders It doesn't take much 'shadowing' on the walls to hang a piston. Once it shows any inclination of coming loose, flip over the engine so the plug holes are down. Keep lubing the cylinders and slowly rotating the crank until the lube that comes out is clean.

I'm not sure about yours, but most of the old outboards are 35:1 (or richer) and they really do need that much oil. The new lubes are good but I have crunched a '60's Johnson by trying to get by with 50:1

Good luck!
