Builds Boat In Spare Time Huntley Brumfield, an em- Plce for Mountain Bell here, started building a boat about a year ago. It wasn't a rowboat like most do-it-yourself family handymen Would think about building nor was it a duck boat or simple canoe. As a matter of fact, Bruield didn't even have a build-it-yourself kit. All he had was a set of plans for a 26 - foot luxury cabin crui- ser andevery day he works on it, it looks more and more like a boat. :, .Sh!rng with a truck-load of n   plywood, mahngany,  " Si,, ilberglass, screws and a garage full of wood tools, Brum- field has the huh completed and is Well on the way to having the uPPer deck and interior finish- ed. The wooden hull of the boat, built from blueprints, has ap- ,, Proximately 30 gallons  resin  e ,/coating pamted on it. On top of n :  rsia, Brumfild put two coats of fiberglass, to make sure the boat would be com- pletely waterproof. Huntley said he had the two- foot diameter pilot wheel built before he even had plans for the boat. "Its been sort of an in- spiration for me," he said. With over 6,500 screws andno nails in the boat, Brumfield said, "There's more work to one of these things that I ever thought there was." The entire upper deck and woodwork on the boat is ma- hngany. Whenfinished there will be galley facilities, bathroom facilities and berthing for four. But, Brumfield may have a problem when the boat is fin- ished. His garage door is seven feet high and the highest point on the boatis sixfeet 11 andone- half inches. So, he will only have one-half inch clearance to ge the craft out of his garuge. Powered by a 350 - cubic- inch 275 horsepower chevrolet engine with jet drive, Huntley says he's taking the craft to Rock Creek, about 145 miles wes[ of Sidney, for launching in the spring. When the boat is loaded with gasoline, water and food provi- sions, Huntley estimates that it will weigh right around 5,000 pounds. He said his plans" are to build a trailer for the boat and pull it to Rock Creek and after a summer's use, mw it back to Sidney, Brumfield and his wife have four children and live just south of the city limits, where he builds custom cabinets in his huge garage in his spare time. Having about $5,000 in the boat, Huntley cautions people about ads that sell plans and that say, "You can build it with ordinary household tools, a hammer, handsaw and screw- driver." Huntley said it wouki- n't be impossible but it would take five or six years. Brumfield sands mahogany woodwork on his 26-foot cabin cruiser. The entire upper deck is constructed of mahogany. Huntley Brumfield, an employe for Mountain Bell here, began buildingthis 26-foot cabin cruiser a year ago. Brumfield says he will have the boat in the water in early spring. The pilot wheel for Brumfield's boat was built before plans for the craft were ever purchased. Brumfield said the wheel was an inspiration for him to continue on the craft.
