There are riveting adaptors for your power drill you can get that would save your hand.
Thanks!

Reriveting floor

Get the large 'A'-framed rivet tool, if you haven't already, as you'll have carpal tunnel in your wrists after just a few rivets with the std tool. Looks like there are going to be about 150/200 rivets. I got the feeling I’ll be thanking you for that piece of advice. I’ll give a pre-emptive thanks ...

Reriveting floor

The floor in my 2011 G3 1756SC is loosing rivets. I contacted G3 and they provided the info material BUT I’ve never done anything like this before. Any assistance or advice would be helpful.
Here’s a pic of what’s happening:

Loading the boat

Since I’ve been a boat owner, a bit more than 20 years, I’ve backed the boat down until the fenders are almost covered and the bottom bunks are about 1/2 submerged. Now, I’m seeing fenders halfway exposed and the bunks 1/3 submerged. Some of this is in 1 man launch videos. The ramps I use are proba...

Loading the boat

There’s something else I just thought about and I should add. In NJ, most of the ramps I launched from were unimproved and with very little incline. Have you ever launched at the old Assunpink and Rising Sun ramp, JL8Jeff? The Farrington chain of lakes or even Manasquan Reservoir? Again, not steep ...

Now canceled world-wide ...

It’s VA. Where most of the federal employees live. Just removes the driving time and wear and tear on vehicles of people who we pay to sit around and do nothing.

Unfortunately, there’s no aftermarket conversion kit to go from console to tiller.
Also, it’s conducive to removing the console to sell.

Selling boat question

Yeah, that 1756 is a pretty heavy boat. My 1652 is quite a bit lighter. Like you said, a Carolina skiff 14' or a G3 1448 WOF would be half the weight or even less. You may want to look into keeping your motor since you know it's history and I think most people looking at a 1756 would be looking for...

Selling boat question

I think part of the problem is how heavy the my current boat is. In another thread, I talked about the Sun Dolphin 120 Pro. It’s really a vessel of last resort. I’d much prefer a Carolina Skiff type boat in a 14’ or 15’ length.

Selling boat question

Aw shoot Hammer sorry to hear about the stoke. I can't really give you any good tips about selling a boat other than around here it seems just about everyone uses Craigslist. I've not sold a boat there, but I sold some major woodworking tools that I had to get rid of before we moved to the current ...

Selling boat question

Assuming there isn't something going on with the ramp, it just shouldn't be that much of an issue putting the boat on the trailer. It sounds like you should add side bunks or guide ons. Also make sure the trailer bunks are adjusted to fit the boat properly. And, what CedarRiver says - don't back th...
