Re: Aussie Belle

Pretty shiny bits 😀 Always seems like we always wait for some problem or parts to get resolved. You sure have turned the corner on this and have a splash in sight!

Re: 25' Skiff Build

Yofish Amazing watching you build such a fine boat out of aluminum. I have been welding odds and ends in aluminum to maintain my docks motors and pontoon boats. I’m sure lots of hours go in to the learning curve before attempting a welding project like this. The wooden variety certainly is more forg...

Re: finishes

Interlux Perfection Plus is the best I’ve found for use over epoxy base coatings.

Re: Rudders, struts, propshafts and more from Glen-L

Yes, I'm sure their prices are up to date, but that doesn't mean they are in stock...fyi. They are working to get things made though and we will add them to our site when we find out they're available. It takes a long time to get castings made and then machined. They'll get there! Maybe a better ap...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Bryan-
Congratulations on the flip! The hull looks beautiful!
I like your choice of power too. Should be reliable power once you do the rebuild.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Cute device. :D
I found a block plane to be handy too as the coverboard rolls into the barrel. Longboard work to avoid concave surfaces to happen in the long fair transition into the sides.
Fair lines

Re: using fillets to protect joints

“Hi All, I have a sort of nuanced question: I am building a Hunky Dory and keeping to the tradition of glassing the outside and oiling the inside.” —-I’m not used to seeing that treatment. Most builders epoxy encapsulated their boat to protect moisture intrusion. Sheathing one side of older boats mi...

Re: Laminated Stem in Barrelback 20

OK ...well maybe not dead on end grain. But your stem is a faired to a point on the barrelback right? And hidden so no beautiful grain is even exposed.
Either way will work. IMO Ply makes more sense on this one :D

Re: Laminated Stem in Barrelback 20

Greg with that approach, you would be going into end grain as you fair it and edge grain as you screwed into it. On the ply it is going into the face so would overall easier to work and stronger when you fasten

Greg, I think we all laminated the stem as it is a pretty thick piece of stock

Re: Rudders, struts, propshafts and more from Glen-L

The Glenwood catalog isn't up to date as far as what they have available. The rudders on our site are all that we carry at this time: https://www.boatdesigns.com/Rudders/products/85/ Let me know if you have any questions. ooooh :shock: thanks Gayle it looked like they had the catalog updated as of ...

Re: Boat Show 2019

Up north we run many ETEC’s in freezing conditions and extend our boating season from ice out to ice in. Still a 2 stroke but not a bug killer like those of old. ...Of course I still have the inboards too. Often see the Yamahas rigged on pontoon boats.
