  1. ..on Schoodic Peninsula headed for Schoodic Woods campground…has a green swoosh. Who might that be?…just a couple miles from my home.
  2. I have hull 98. Noticed while getting ready for my upcoming trip that one jack bracket, curb side, ( aluminum) appears to be fully welded on both sides of the bracket. On the street side, the visible side has a small spot weld, the hidden side is fully welded as best as I can tell without a bore scope. I was told by service that it was normal for this production year.
  3. No, I haven’t… this video reminded me about it and just thought I’d put it out there before I forgot about it again.
  4. Does anyone know if the little plugs that he shows in the top holes are available anywhere?…. Most of mine are missing. ..
  5. The BF Goodrich LT’s is what my 2015 came with. 7 1/2 years later, they were still like new, no cracks whatsoever, and plenty of tread, but due to age replaced them anyway… with the same BF Goodrich LT’s.
  6. Don’t think it was butyl tape.. thought I would find that, or 3m 4200, or at worst 3m 5200… the color was off for butyl tape that I’m used to. In any event, on and not leaking, even after pressure washing. Will post photos of trip..
  7. After 3 years, for reasons too numerous to mention, (with the exception of one 300 mile trip) hull 98 hitting the open road again. Starting 5/17 - Grand Canyon, Bryce, Canyonlands, maybe Arches, depending on crowds, Tetons, Yellowstone, and my wife is flying home to Maine from Bozeman on 6/4, and a friend flying in same day to do some fishing in Montana and Wyoming for a week or two before heading back east. Not the best time of year for fishing due to snow runoff, but we’ll be out there so won’t pass up the opportunity. Gray Ghost is 7 1/2 years old now , so new tires, wheel bearings, shocks, batteries and changed out the water pump. Carrying a spare propane regulator. Found the first leak since I’ve had it coming from the porch light over the dinette, re-caulked that. Others checked out fine. The caulk around the bath fan was missing 1/4” chunks, but wasn’t leaking. Upon removal discovered it was bedded in plumbers putty, with a protective silicone caulk around the outside. The plumbers putty was like new, and not leaking, so reinstalled the same way. All systems go (🤞🏻)…..
  8. My LE2 was built in late 2015, and I thought that Oliver used 3M 5200 to attach the white pvc board to the inside fiberglass surface. (hard to be sure, none has loosened or fallen off) For anyone that’s used 5200 for marine applications, you know it’s a PERMANENT attachment. Do not use it to seal anything that you might want to remove at a later date. (3m 4200 is semi-permanent and can be removed, with some difficulty) It’s not cheap stuff, and once it’s opened, needs to be used within a short period of time (day or two) before the remainder in the tube hardens. I just used it to attach a piece of pvc board for an accumulator tank and worked great. You do need to clean the surface of the fiberglass with acetone, NOT alcohol for it to harden properly. It takes 24 hours to cure.
  9. Once you do venture onto a three lane interstate I find that staying in the center lane with the cruise control set at the speed limit or just below, you will rarely have to touch the gas pedal, the brake, or change lanes. Easy cruising, you’ll almost forget Ollie is behind you. The crazies will zoom past you on the left (mostly) and you won’t be in the way of the people that want to exit. UNLESS…. You are in a state that doesn’t allow large trucks, buses or trailers in the left lane…then you will need to pay special attention to your mirrors… on occasion you will need to pull into the right lane and let them by…
  10. Hull # 98, 2015 Ollie Elite II. Four T-105’s still going strong.
  11. Temporary tooth repair kit in mine... break a tooth, loose a filling, you’ll be glad you have it.
  12. I live on Schoodic Peninsula if you need any assistance while up this way. Should be around except for 8/22 - 8/27
  13. I believe the honeycomb core material is Nidacore. Very expensive, lightweight and very strong.
