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 Bill, Nice to hear from you again. It was definitely mph, not that I would ever want to go that fast with a Barrelback hull (vertical stem and deep forefoot?). I'm running 200HP with a velvet drive 1.1 direct drive with a 1" shaft. The boat is a standard 19' unstretched. I would, at a very r...

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...

Re: Prop placing/angle etc.

Greybird I am also building a Barrelback which is almost finished in Solihull UK. I placed the rudder and strut exactly as per the plans, the engine at 15 degrees with the strut at 18 degrees. The instructions recommend a 12" prop but I was also told that this was too small however one prop cal...

Tip for planking staples

For those using metal staples on the mahogany layer, here's a little tip to get rid of the holes left after pulling the staples, first, get a bowl of water and a towel, then go undercover and raid the missuses laundry cupboard if you know where it is and grab her iron. If you survive getting out of ...

Re: No more EZ-Poxy2

Hi, if it helps at all, on my barrelback I used a two part primer (interlux 2 coats) followed by 2 coats of two part interlux undercoat followed by four coats of one part Brightside. The finish is excellent with a high gloss which hasn't faded and resistant to the usual wear and tear, no scratches e...

Re: One Paint for Above and Below the Water Line?

I used Interlux Bright Sides on my boat with no problems, their tech department advises that it is OK for up to nine days in water but will have to be hauled out after that time and washed down. They also recommended to use 2 pack primer and undercoat first, 2 coats of each as a minimum. Make sure y...

Re: Bottom Paint for a Barrelback.

I went with International Paints 2 pack primer (2 coats) followed by 3 coats of 2 pack undercoat and 5 coats of International Brightside Norfolk Green Poly. This is a very high gloss paint which looks good with the white boot stripe. I used the primer and undercoat up to the top of the boot stripe. ...
