Re: The passing of Ken Hankinson

Such a sad time, I am building one of his Barrelbacks, This is a huge loss to the boat building world.

RIP Ken.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I cut each plank close (slightly proud) the centerline of the keel. When I got one complete side done, I took a plane and trimmed that side down to the centerline. (it's like fairing all over again) After doing that, I planked the opposing side once again leaving that side slightly proud, and then ...

Re: Barrelback design

Re: Barrelback design

It may be something for Gayle to look into, I would hate to think that our favourite boat design company is getting ripped off with their copyrights.

Barrelback design

I have just come across a website called Clark Craft in NY offering what appear to be exact copies of Hankinson designed boats. Are Glen L associated with them?

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Hi Steve,

I can confirm that TomB is correct as I have the same instructions for my Barrel Back concerning the boot top or water line.

Re: Prayer Request for vupilot

Chris,

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, as someone else said, doctors can do wonders nowadays, I wish you a speedy recovery.
As a pilot myself, I can appreciate your pain at having your medical certificate revoked, I would find it devastating, so double prayers from me.

Martin.

Re: Prop placing/angle etc.

Hi David, It would be a pleasure to meet a fellow builder, I am currently installing the mahogany on the deck as the weather permits, although all the mechanicals are finished apart from selecting and fitting a prop. If you would like to meet on a weekend that would be great, just let me know when i...
