The one I have is more than most would want to tackle, I have the time, tools and enough lack of common sense to make it happen B)




Charlie has one that you might talk him out of :hmm:

Looks great but I have a question how do you keep that strap from rubbing the paint off of your feathercraft

I'd like to find a 56 single cockpit Rocket. That said, how badly 'gutted' is the boat? If it's been sawzalled, it's probably more than I want to tackle. Otherwise, lets talk.

Now I have to find a Rocket to build next winter.








How deep into a rebuild are you willing to dive.
I have a 56 Rocket that has been gutted, I’m about a month away from starting the reconstruction but I would pass it on to someone who could/would do it justice.

I think it would look cooler if...... Shoot... I got nothing.... That's one cool tender boat. Can't wait to see her.

For Rob and a few others who have been curious about the davit/lift we're putting on the back of Barefeet, here are a few photos. At this point, it's far from a finished installation, with the winch cover, safety chains, and lifting straps yet to be completed. In the photos, the boat is just barely out of the water. When everything is done, the foot of the motor will be about 16 inches out of the water. That's with the motor all the way down.
