  1. Hey, someone has to keep you honest. You have us all waiting in anticipation of seeing the White running down the road and you with a HUGE grin on your face. I hope it’s actually as much fun as it sounds!
  2. Yeah, bad WiFi at my house. Tried hitting the submit button but nothing happened..at least on my phone. Once I looked I found that it posted 4 times. Can’t figure out how to delete the other three. But they show as much as Ed’s video! 😆
  3. This one is a true triple, not a walk through. Has original power, a Chrysler 8 Imperial but have re-powered with a 454. Am working on replacing frames, chines and keel before doing the covering. I have a 1931 LaSalle ccp to tow it with once done. Then start on the 1931 Dart 22.5 triple. A boy needs a project. And yes Ed, you and Peg will be riding in it up at Lake George once done...That is if we can ever get you out of Florida! And of course, I’ll need a ride in the White
  4. I already have one of those. This is my 1930 28’ Garwood. Replacing the bottom and sides.
  5. So, my wife unit made a good point... You got a great “dream job”, moved her from her home, friends and comforts and moved to hot & steamy Florida. If all she’s asking for is a new car, “What’s the problem?” Maybe find her a sailboat too!!
  6. Awww, that’s just mean. Now you’ve gone and hurt my feelings. Gonna have Barbara plant poison ivy all around your house!
  7. If you think the DMV is bad, try playing with the SS department! Somewhere in the mid-late ‘70’s, a “helpful” employee there decided to add a second L to my last name. My family spells it Elsworth with only 1 L (we didn’t get our Ls worth!). So now here I am at retirement age and find I have no SS account!! After months of trying to get it straightened out, they’ve decided it’s best for me to legally change my name and add the second L. That’s the best they can do. My granddad is turning!
  8. I’ve always been a fan of “self healing machinery” but this is even better!
  9. I’m looking for non working temp/oil gauges to buy. If you have an old 120 broken temp gauge that you could spare, please contact Wayne at yachtflame@yahoo.com. Or call 413-658-4416
  10. I am looking to buy dead XK-120 Temp/oil gauges. If you have a dead one laying around, please contact me at yachtflame@yahoo.com or call me at 4136584416 Wayne
  11. That’s the plan.....but it will probably be another 103 years before someone takes it apart again. Sometimes when I service a car, I will place a note somewhere it will only be found fifty or more years later........just a short story of what we did, and what it cost. I once took a WO Bentley apart and found a similar note from 1939. We replaced it, and added our own. I’m certain it’s still there, we placed it in 1989. Time sure passes quickly. Edited Thur ive restored over a dozen 1920’s - 1930’s Mahogany speedboats. If I was working on an original boat, I’d cut a piece of th
  12. You also need to get some luggage trunks and a rocking chair.
  13. Actually, good job Ed. I was just giving you s**t to keep you on your toes. We’ve all been following your progress with smiles on our faces. Few of us here would know where to start and certainly wouldn’t have the patience that you’ve been exhibiting for the past month. We’re all learning a lot. Keep up the great work!
