Here's our trip vid from the Grand last year. Kinda long.

We're hoping to add more motor folks to our trips. I know you're out there.

Raymo: Memorial day Cat?!?! Sounds like Yeager will be there too. He's looking forward to seeing you again and catching up. Our S is almost done...

No such thing as to long of a Grand Canyon video, as far as I'm concerned:D
DUMPING again in the Colorado river head waters, hears to another awesome boating season!!

Bravo! This was a great video. Thanks for such effort putting this together. Many people have a gro pro and camera, but few take the time to make something like this. Also, I guess I won’t be a real motorman until I rock a sleeveless shirt!

Viva the motorized oar!

I don't know who was driving but that was a sweet move next to the big wall, swinging his nose back up stream than doing a slow 180°, than motoring away from the wall, nice move. May-June is high water month's for Cat, perfect water for the big-iron boats and so much fun. Enjoyed that great video. Thanks for sharing. Greg such a great guy, it's been a few years sense we've shared a bottle of JD together. My son-in-law's and daughters wanted me to go to Alaska over Memorial Day for some fishing also and I had to say no, my health is kicking my butt. So, thank you for the kind offer. Looking forward to the Cat video and that S rig your strapping together. We will have to get together with Greg and have a few cold ones, though.

ya'ller too kind. Thank you.

Raymo: That's Lloyd driving that boat. Heck of a boatman. He's bringing down some parts for the S this weekend. We'll be in Erie at our buddy's hangar on Saturday working on the S if you'd like to stop by. PM me and I'll give you the details.

tanderson: gun show on Cat!! I'll be breaking out the hillbilly tuxedo!

Know it well. PM to you, don't know if it went through. BJ's Strawberry Restaurant(Convair) there had some decent frog legs back in the days, it's not there any more I believe. Like to see that S rig at sometime, probably not today, though.

Got your PM. I'll touch base with Yeager and make sure he brings the beer. If you're ever landing at erie, you'll see the s, cant miss it. It even looks big from the air.

Yes, you are correct. 4 strokes have been required in GC for decades now...More of a comment about motorheads in general and the mention about Cat. Besides, I just like my 2 strokes better than my 4 strokes. They smell better :D Hope everyone has a blast on the flood, we don't have big water every year!

A really nice job on the video.

Many of us shoot the video but few take the time to organize, add music and all the best memory making images.

Thank You for sharing, many memories

Give Mr. yardsells some time to post some pictures, I have been out to the airport hangar twice, their S-rig is comming along beautifully. It looks like an aircraft carrier next to their J3 Cub airplane in the back 40, behind the hangar. It's going to be one slick S-rig.

Dang! And I thought our 22' snout was cool. Dam! Your S rig is a SERIOUS motor rig! Wowza! Curious - the front half of the frame - what are all the cross bars for? Structural support or are those giant removable tables??? Or structural supports topped with removable tables? At 0:22 it looks like you've got full size 8x4 banquet tables ready to roll. Impressive setup!

Hi,

Nice looking rig. One quick comment/reaction.

On the J rigs I have seen, the transverse "weenie tube" was mounted down between the two big frame segments, to act as a hinge, rather than sitting on top them. What's the strategy here?

No criticism, just asking...
