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)

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Hope your engine problem is solved.. They are a little aggressive on the impeller - My engine sat for a number of years during the build - then I used it a few seasons - and it did fail! I did't realize the big V8 had an impeller (duh) - I just figured a more traditional water pump was at work. That...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

I didn't read all the way back to see what engine you had - but this sounds very much like an issue I had on my truck years ago.. If your engine is modern and has a mass air flow sensor on the intake and the throttle body - it could be dirty causing the butterfly valve to stick. I can't remember all...

Great looking boat!
Fantastic job - really.. I'm jealous.
Very very nice.

Making a Shutterfly site is pretty simple and is a good way to document what you did.

Re: Belle Isle in Chicago build thread (with a few pics)

Great job! If there is a better way to do it, I'd like to know. But I think you did it the only way there is do to it. I had the exact same issues years ago and went through the same steps except I didn't have an air sander at the time.. Now I know better - finish looks great! Love watching your pro...

Re: Belle Isle in Chicago build thread (with a few pics)

It doesn't - not my favorite part of the process either :) I tried to get the wife to help - told her 'Wet Sanding' was fun for years... Didn't work - until we got her - a pontoon boat. She wanted to clean up the pontoons - and after 15 years - I finally got her wet sanding! Boat looks great :) Than...
