Part 1: Lost the Enforcer but gained a trailer

Updated 11-15-2008 at 04:13 PM by Old Hickory

My journey began with a trip to Houston to buy a 1983 Enforcer. I won't go into the details here but It can be found in my thread "Sad Checkmate Story" in Play to Win. The bottom line is I went to look at this boat.....





It appeared to be just what I was looking for. I knew it would need to...

Part 8: Building the transom

Finally getting around to building the first structural parts to my Enforcer. Once the transom was out it was on to making a pattern from the old one; cutting and glueing it all up.

First decision I had to make was to determine what materials I was going to use. I initially was going to build the transom out of Douglas fir due to it's strength and cost effectiveness; but was eventually swayed by several members, one in particular, to give Coosa board a try. The one draw back was cost....

Part 9: Transom clamps and gluing/ bedding the transom

Posted 11-12-2008 at 07:00 PM by Old Hickory (Old Hickory's 1983 Checkmate Enforcer Restoration)
Updated 12-15-2009 at 07:24 PM by Old Hickory (found lost pics)

As fate would have it I have lost all of the pics I took during the glueing and bedding of my new transom. So the following will be a discussion of the process. If I recover the files I will post pics.

But, before I get into that discussion I am going to repost here, The plans and and materials list for my Giant Jorgensen transom clamps.

Part 10: Stearn rebuild.....My enforcers butt lift!

Finally got around to rebuilding the stearn of the Enforcer. As you can see later she'll begin to shape up and look very similar to a inboard Convincor. First step was to clean up the splashwell cutout. I cut up to the bottom line of my original level line(I left about a inch below the line just in case). I then sanded the edge and the surface down to the gel. These pics show what she looked like after I was finished. See my "Loosin the caboose" post for before pics.

Control cable replacement tip

Posted 09-07-2009 at 05:54 PM by mkhammer (ECU Electrical problems solved)

It can be a tough job in some boats to replace a control cable. especially if it follows the same route as other wires, cables ect.
I use a method in my shop that really works.
First I get both ends of the cable loose ready to pull out. Then I tape a 1/8" poly pull rope to the opposite end I am pulling.
Then I pull the cable out pull rope following. Once the cable is pulled out I cut the rope off and tape it to the end of the new cable. Tape about 6" of rope solid...
