There have been further delays with the project, due in part to other shorter term projects taking precidence, and also COVID.

They did get some more prep work for new gelcoat and rubrail, and side storage compartments and washdown pump mounts were fabricated and installed.  I was able to find the correct size used prop as well.  We decided to do a custom molded fiberglass acess hatch instead of a prefab in the rear deck too.

Practicing some patience. Wink

Looking over the thread I was surprised to see the transducer right on the keel line.  The boat is all New England, your hull design still the king in the Maine lobster fishery, and some 29's still doing charter work around the reefs and rock piles of Cape Cod and the Islands to Montauk.  The design with the full skeg and pintle under the wheel and rudder were there to slide, hopefully, over the rocks if the skipper was getting a little too tight on his pass or not paying attention. That is the reason your rudder is so big to react quickly to those "oh crap" moments.  Stern tillers and aft controls were often built into the 29's. Never would see a mount like that in New England, always in the bilge, off center, hopefully protected by the skeg.  I get it you guys are in a whole different Idaho, go a few miles and you can't even find the bottom anymore!!  Tight lines, good looking job.

Hi John, This is Doug Whittington in Maryland. Just bought a 1969 Dyer 29. It's down south of me in VA. Just stopped by and paid my man 1850.00 to transport the boat from the marina in Rescue, Va to my shop in Cambridge, MD. I guess this is one of the smaller checks I'll write. Boy, i'll have a lot of questions for you. This is a trunk cabin, small hardtop with a flush cockpit deck. Plan on a re-power with a new gas Crusader fuel injection engine. This boat will be on a lift at my house and used in the Chesapeake Bay. My buddy John Taylor told me about your project. Hope it doesn't affect my reel collecting money. I'll post a picture when I get it here next week. They are pretty boats. Doug

Quick update...

I stopped by the boat yesterday and Jobn has made some good progress over the past few weeks.  He has molded/built/installed a custom rear crawl/access hatch, finished enclosing storage compartments, installed all new water and fuel lines, built a custom PVC engine ventilation system, fuel tank vents/fillers, installed, buildge pumps and plumbing installed, engine heat shields installed, built mount and mounted high capacity washdown pump, the entire deck has been glassed in and sealed underneith with epoxy, two heavy reinforcing blocks were added (1 in the middle of the rear deck, 1 below the rail/behind step on the port side) for mounting accesories (i.e greenstick/davit/electric bandit reel, & fighting chair/rocket launcher/or bait well).  He has completed sanding the entire boat inside and out, including the decks, and interior cabin.  Unfortunately I didn't have a camera or phone along so no progress pics yet.

Today I bought a junk 20' fiberform boat, and trailer for cheap and we moved it to John's boatyard.  The idea is to cut off the cab and modify it slightly (1' taller, blend to match my boat's linea, maybe extend slightly, maybe change windiw size for new windows) before mounting on my boat.  

The boat also came with a 3 section, 35' long GreenStick which I plan to refresh and mount on the portside behind step/cab top mounted to reinforced floor, gunnel, and hardtop.  Also came with a SS center rigger mount, and I have a 5 rod holder for the roof.  

I need to pick out helm chairs, 500-800lb fish box, and do the 1000hr service on the engine.  Once the cab is complete, everything will get primed/painted, hardware/acessories, mounted, prop mounted, stuffing replaced, rub rail mounted, need to get a new SS anchor pulpit and mount, plumb washdown paint the bottom, and it will hopefully he ready to fish.  Not sure how much longer to complete the work, but I am remaining cautiously optimistic since I just added another project to the list.  

I also bought a 400lb/day ice machine.

John

That kind of a job would overwhelm me.  I'd look at it, puke and walk away.  You got guts John.  Best of luck.  Dominick
