Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I would not use 4200 if you ever want it to come off.. It says its not as sticky as 5200 - big fat lie.. The stuff you are supposed to use is called bedding compound. Dolphinite is the old timey brand.. Interlux makes some too. Most deck hardware where you don't want water getting it is done this wa...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I had missed this it seems - wow! Nice work sir.. that's a lot of hours.. again .. this part of the build is so fun.. one.. visual progress.. two.. ability to demonstrate progress. 12 hours of sanding and finishing means nothing to the casual observer..

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I outsourced 2 things.. The cutwater and the upholstery.. (The cutwater guy was driving distance at the time)
Cool that you are doing it!
Let see a few pics of that work in progress.

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

Agreed - laminate and scarf - stronger and more stable.. with the benefit of less cost.

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..
just a thought.
