Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

just to be clear - I did quite a bit before curling up under my bow for an afternoon..
But there is little getting around it.. Time will be spent in cramped places :)

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

ahh the fun of crawling around inside the boat with no place to go :)

I clearly remember curling into a ball behind my dashboard for a day as I got all of the wiring in place..
and I tend to hit my head a lot..

Looking good!

Re: Motor stringers

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I'm sure you've seen this - use a circle jig to do it. These make large circles pretty easily - and you can make this out of scrap https://bperkins.files.wordpress.com/2018/01/img_4901.jpg?w=736 Then cut the outer hole - I was afraid of a slip - so I left tabs and made the final cut by hand. https:/...

Re: Double layer ply vs single...

I looked at the picture of the boat..
The bottom is relatively flat - however - there is twist..
Twisting 1/2" plywood is going to be a pain... its going to put up a fight.. pulling on frames, etc as you get it into position..

Re: Double layer ply vs single...

Nice to see my site is still getting used. and agreed - If you want to be certain to have no voids - vacuum is the best way to do it.. Vacuum is the perfect clamp - 2000+ pounds of clamping pressure per square foot in the exact shape of your boat.. AND - if there is a void potential - the vacuum pul...

Re: Biscayne 22 vs Belle Isle

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Making the seating was a source of anxiety.. When I did mine - there wasn't a lot of reference material.. I'm not sure there is now.. That said - I went out and took measurements from my daily driver.. seat depth, height, angle, etc.. That turned out to be a big help in getting close to the final se...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

You may want to wait until your seats are in place and make sure it will direct the wind over your eyes (and hat if possible)
