Just an update on our progress this mornin'... several of the BRAB brothers showed up. We've managed to cut some more of the fat off the riggin' & got the seat stand framed out & welded to the riggin', adjusted the sterrin' stick & we've managed to lose the tape measure a few times. We're taken a sam'ich break & tellin' a few exagurated truths & out right lies with the Possum serranadin' us on Cuzin' Eugenes music machine. It's all good!!! :toothy7:

Just an update on our progress this evenin'... the BRAB brothers have all gone home. The seat stand is welded in place & the expanded metal is cut for the seat box. A flat peice is welded in the driver's side of the riggin' for the "Perko" so it'll be easier get to. Lastly, a flat peice & some angle is cut & ready to make a double battery holder. So far I'm pretty happy with the way this project is turnin' out & I'm especially thankful for all the help & advice from my BRAB brothers. :wink:

Just finished a bowl of beans & some cornbread... another great day spent with good friends!!! :toothy7:

The boat was looking good and the tunes were cranking out Gary Stewart when I left!
The BRAB established a confabulation of construction and obstruction , somewhere in the mix a AirGator got modded !

Dang, what all did I miss? Last I thought you had a 19x8 airranger? I bet smaller is a bit more fun on those tight river areas though! I"m the other way, wish i had one bigger than 16 for more folks and gear.

Let us know how she runs!

i realize most folks dont care for the wood props, and i dont think i'd want one
just bc the fact their fixed pitch. although i know a fellar with a classic and a 2 blade
paddle prop and its pretty fair size and runs the brazos just fine
