Art Shand's Bullet

After 8 years of on and off time in the shop and 976 build hours later (yeah, yeah, I over built it), the SU finally had enough: " Finish that @#**&^ thing and get it outta my basement!" Or something to that effect. :D Actually, she has been very helpful and supportive. I modified the fore hull to s...

Re: Elec powered Bullet

Interesting thing about the Torqeedo Cruise 2.0 and 4.0... Granted, it was a number of years ago and things may have changed since then but when I was noodling over which motor to go with (the ultimate decision was based on 24v vs. 48v, the latter requiring significantly more battery weight which wo...

Re: Elec powered Bullet

I get about 9.5 kts at WOT. I have two group 31 AGM batteries in series (the motor wants 24vdc) which give me about 4 hours cruising at 75-80%. The boat weighs about 195 lbs, slightly higher than the plans suggest only because I overbuilt it a tad. :-)

Re: Elec powered Bullet

Eight years after beginning my Bullet build, I launched it. If I could figure out how to post more than 3 pics (allowed in this post) elsewhere, I would.

Re: Brightsides application questions

I have 3 coats of Brightsides single part primer (grey) on my Bullet hull, wet sanded w/ 320. So far so good. Now its time for the top coat. The boat will only see fresh water, and most likely will not stay in the water more than a few weeks at a time, possibly a month or two in the Summer. It strik...

Re: Utility build

Mike, that hull looks great. How did you apply the paint? I'm guessing roller... If so, did you tip it after rolling?

Re: Utility build

I had the same worry when I went to flip. The hull just didn't want to get divorced from the frame! After all, they had been living in close harmony for over a year... Crawled up under there to find a few screws that had extended into the frame nicely tacking together the whole shebang. Digging out ...

Still working my Bullet

I'm going on 3+ years since I started my Bullet build. Only on weekends, and usually only a few hours at that. It's been a while since I posted any pics, so here's one below. For the seat, I wanted to approximate a porch swing affair, but with teak strips instead of the typical redwood found on thos...

I like it. Reminds me of getting my Bullet port chine fairing angle (at the transom) visualized:

Elec powered Bullet

Closing in on completing my Bullet build. Although the boat is speced for up to a 35hp, I am hanging a Torqeedo 2.0 electric on the transom, the foremost reason being the lake authority in Big Canoe, GA on which I'll boat allows e-power only. 99% of the craft in the marina are pontoon boats, the res...

Re: Sorting gallery pictures

Hi John, I've appended an incrementing numeric to a few pic file names in 1321, but it seems the sort order is unchanged. Do I need to edit each and every file name before the sort increments? I must be missing something. Mind taking a peek at 1321 and see what I'm missing? Thanks!

SS-rubrail over mahog strip

Closing in on completing my Bullet build. I plan to paint the hull and deck different colors. Because the shear on a Bullet is quite acute, I'm thinking about forming (grinding) a 1" wide flat along the length of the shear upon which I will fasten a thin 1" strip of mahog upon which I will fasten a ...

I'm 3.5 years into my Bullet build, but I am definitely getting close to finishing up.

Sorting gallery pictures

Probably the wrong place to post this question...
How does one sort the order of the pictures in one's gallery by date? Mine originally appeared that way but over time they have become jumbled. Gallery 1321. Thanks!
