You gotta use the tools you are comfortable with. You're way better with a belt sander than I am!

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I'm with you guys 100% but when you have a ton to take off sometimes I use my cheap power plane to get the bulk off. I did most of my fairing with a #5 Stanley.

Tackling the most important issues first. #1 Being the crappy winch tower that came with this trailer. I'm beefing it up substantially with some 3x3 steel tubing that should bolt right in after (hopefully) drilling holes in the right spots.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I waited until after the flip to cut the motor cutout. It would have been easier when I had the transom flat on the bench but didn't end up being a problem in the end.

Unknown what the deadrise is, but it's fairly shallow. There is lots of freeboard and you have to hit a pretty big wave to get spray over the bow.

Yeah, you've been hiding from us. That's a fantastic looking ride you got there. Got any on-water shots?

Matt - So no battery box then? Do you cover the terminals?

I may add a hold down feature as well so I can use the mount with or without the battery box.
I don't have anything covering the terminals. The battery is the only thing in that compartment though.

Re: Tunnel king / Desperado

Someone completed a Tunnel King a couple of years ago that is documented here on the forum. Try searching for the thread. It is a very fast boat.
