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...

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)
