  • Dear Community Members,

    Updated 9/29/20 - Upgrades have been pushed until 10/7/20

    Over the last two years, there have been updates to the environment that have introduced challenges in usability, performance, and security. Efforts to improve the technology, user interface and site performance have revealed weaknesses in the platform and outdated software our site uses. This has made it increasingly difficult and frustrating to support and upgrade to more modern reliable standards that users deserve. This is not the experience we want for the members of this community.

    Members want a fast site that performs well across all devices, to be able to find relevant and interesting content, and easily share through text, images, video, and messaging on a secure platform. Our goal is to provide this user experience to all members. We will be updating to a new platform to better meet the needs of this community and allow us to provide support more efficiently. Our focus is to create a sustainable platform that performs well and loads faster on all devices while offering seamless ways to search and connect. Technology is constantly innovating - by creating an environment that we control we can maintain the site with more frequent improvements and maintenance updates.

    Although change can be difficult, we are here to support you through the process. We make every effort to review existing settings and make the changes needed so the migration goes smoothly. If you notice something doesn’t seem correct once the site goes live, don’t panic! We’ll have a dedicated person monitoring as the site goes live to answer any questions and provide support through this change.

    What’s next?
    When will this be happening? The plan is to put our current forums into maintenance mode (off line) at around 9am MST on 10/7/2020! The whole transition should take 30-36 hours. We recognize the user experience is slow and there are bugs from the outdated software. The sooner we can change that the better we can make the experience for you. You’ll start to see activity related to cleanup in preparation for migration very shortly. We will post an announcement to the community prior to starting the actual data migration.

    We appreciate each member’s contribution to this community and look forward to an improved experience for you all.

      thanks for all the great pics and ideas..just brought my tired old '61 Jupiter home for a new floor and transom (2nd one)..seeing what you've done makes a full resto look like a better idea but am short on time with fishing season fast approaching & boat has 6" of fresh snow covering it

          Just reading up on the jupiter resto and I was wondering where I could buy some of that lime ZC fuel tank primer. I want to repaint my boat and want the most durable product for a aluminum boat.

I also got some of the decking cut out today and placed which was harder since my old decking was crap. anyway here are some pictures of the decking. here is the first piece
                  What type and thickness of plywood did you use? I took the old deck out of my Jupiter and the trash guy was very ambitious and hauled it away before i had a chance to use it as a template....ugh. So I'm not exactly sure how thick it was. I am planning to use exterior glued plywood, my guess is about 5/8", but not sure.

                      I am still here EZ. I have been on vacation LOL. actually I am retiring this year and was saving my projects for then but I still am lurking around and sorry I have not been active but will try harder as I have been working but* loads of overtime to help my early retirement. and I only used 1/2 inch plywood for my floor because I beefed up the support structure under the floor.

                        • Uhhmmm Caswesm You should familiarize yourself with our forum Rules and Guidelines. They dictate that only the OP can open a thread that's more than 90 days old. This one is over 2 years old. Start a thread with pics and descriptions of your boat and you'll get a lot of input from the members here on the forum

                            V8's last post was after ezmobee made his post over two years ago. So I'll echo ez's post with a minor change - "Please don't post to old threads caswesm. It's not looking like V8 is coming back."
