You are going to love having a boat house. There is nothing more convenient. What river?

It is on the Rock River. Maybe I'll start my own boathouse referb thread when I get going. First order is a good cleaning and get rid of the junk. It hasn't been used for the better part of 10 years or so.

Yes, trailer is on tracks/rails and a winch pulls it in. I have to fabricate all new rails from the seawall into the water as the old stuff isn't going to work for me. Luckily, my next door neighbor and ski buddy is a master when it comes to welding/metal work. He's a teacher so we probably won't get started till the end of May. Not sure if the trailer is going to work for my boat, but I'm pretty sure I can make it work with some modifications.

I've been down and out basically since I moved in with some medical issues so there hasn't been any progress except for cleaning out the junk and dirt that accumulated over the last 10 years of no use. I haven't even got my boat out of my friend's warehouse yet.

madcityskier, I'm near Sterling, IL.

20x50 garage. Racecar lives in the back. Boat lives in the front.

WORKING MANS garage built for function not pretty....

ctjahn - I would love to get into racing. Looks like a serious step up from shifter carts - current thought as a low-cost entry point. What powers that slick beast of yours?

Thx Ryan

Thanks.

I have been racing since 94 (and I am only 38 or so.) Bought, sold, begged borrowed, stole and negotiated my way up to this car through no less than 25 car deals.

It is powered by a 2007/2008 GSXR 1000 bike motor. About 750 pounds; but it is no toy. 1500 to 3000 pounds of downforce depending on the track. About 14' long, 6.5' wide. 8" wide fronts, 10" wide rears. Electrically controlled air actuated paddle shifter, carbon fiber, and all kinds of crazy technology. Does road course laptimes just shy of the ALMS cars....

Big step up this year (from old car); to this one. (Mind you.... self financed, self sponsored driver, my own mechanic, builder, pit crew, team manager, and truck driver when not on the boat.)

My full time hobby...outside of the house and boat... And... wife.
