Come over to The Abbey this weekend and say Hey.

I'll have a cooler on board loaded with cold ones to share.

Thanks,
Terry

We had a few pretty Glassics lined up in Abbey Harbor.



New friends Jim and Kristine aboard their 1959 Larson All American. Jim’s Dad bought 'Blue Heaven' in 1963.

Nice picture Terry... and look at that new power trim doing its job and saving your back. It also helps show off that sweet shiny prop!

Boat looks great Terry. Sounds like you had a good time. We will have to try to make that one next year. Power trim spoils you in a hurry, doesn't it? What did you come up with for switches? It must also be reassuring to not here the rattle anymore. Make sure you let us know what you find when you tear the block down. All I remember from our Mark 58A is there wasn't much to salvage after it threw the rod. We were pulling a skier at the time, so we were running wide open at about 5800 rpm.

Thanks Guys,

The power trim option is sweet for sure. A wise man told me "Once you experience power trim you can never go back". Thanks Joe.


Temped in a three-button control for now. I like the idea of the lever on the steering wheel bezel and, when I redo the steering with Rideguide, I will explore that. Also still need to finish restoring the original wiring harness.


Thanks to Mary aka asign for the beautiful work on the decals she replicated.

And yeah it will be interesting to open up the rattler and find out what is going on up in there.

Hey Terry, he must have been a wise OLD man. Some used t and t on eBay and other sites with hefty price tags on them but in my opin they are worth it, 'specially the older ya get.
If anyone can pick up a junker motor with tnt for cheap it's practically free equip. You get the unit and the recycle the alum for about what you paid for the whole shebang.
On my '76, 85hp Johnson the rocker switch was shot so I installed a spring loaded two way flip switch. Easy Peasy, push up to raise and push down to lower or stop anywhere in between.
Glad you were able to get what you needed.

That's clever. Home built or on an older platform? Reminds me of an old childrens book I had back in the 40's called "LittleToot".
Almost expect Roger Rabbit to jump out.

The owner of ‘MAJEN SAWASMO’ recently told me the story of naming his 1897 L.E. Fry launch.

L.E. Fry & Co. which was located in Clayton NY built boats starting in 1893. They built subchasers during WWI and closed up shop in 1924. The launch stayed on the east coast until my friend Walter bought the boat and relocated her to Lake Geneva.

Prior to Walter’s acquisition of the L.E. Fry launch you would see him tooling around the lake in this 1929 Morris


Unfortunately, the Morris was struck by lightning in the middle of the night and burned and sunk at the dock.





This thing literally blew up and parts were found scattered around town. The boat is currently being restored.





I ended up with a piece of the boat after I met a guy in a bar. He told me he found a hunk of wood in town that looked like it came off a boat. I gave it to Walter and sure enough it was part of the Morris and is being used in the restoration.

Lake Geneva was inhabited by the Potawatomi Tribe before the Army from Fort Dearborn in Chicago showed up.


Potawatomi - MAJEN SAWASMO translates to STAY AWAY LIGHTING.
