Jay415's Alumacraft MV1648

Just a new little addition I just did. I have a habit of putting my rod down to do something and leaving the line still in the water. So instead of one day a fish pulling it in the water I decided to put a flush mount rod holder. I used a hole saw and after the pilot bit started I slowly angle the h...

Piano hinge hatch install pictuers?

I used one 4' hinge, cut half of it but not completely. So one hinge accommodates two doors and there is no gap as there would be between two separate hinges. It looks like one continuous hinge when the hatches are closed. Here's the link to the piano hinge in my install. https://www.tinboats.net/fo...

Alumacraft 1648 Project

Will definately have to that once I get started. Have you ever built a live well for a Jon boat? Mike's build was the inspiration for mine. I put a simple live well in using the existing well in the center seat. I haven't used it once. I'm actually gonna take it out and make it the battery box like...

Stripped bolt hole

The longer bolt worked. Now I just have to find a stainless steel flange bolt the right size. I tested with a zinc flange bolt, since that's all I could find. That won't lay long is saltwater!

Stripped bolt hole

Cool I'll look into that as well. As of now I'm gonna try the simplest fix. I just measured the hole depth and it is about 3/8"-1/2" deeper than the bolt. Hopefully it is threaded all the way down. Gonna try a slightly longer bolt.

Stripped bolt hole

No offense taken I was just saying that it was inevitable. I should have just had my mechanic do it, then he would have had the problem not me! :lol: instead now he has to fix my problem. He made some adjustments for me today and said "you should change those thermostats, its only 2 bolts on each, s...

Stripped bolt hole

The bolt definitely stripped the threads, whether they there or not, don't matter. You need to 'rethread the hole'. You do that with what the other gent said, a helicoil. Remember that most outboards are made out of POT metal. This is a cheap aluminum mix and overtightening bolts happens all the ti...
