Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Bob, You've been a inspiration and knowledge base from the beginning of this adventure. I know I would have probably gotten here without your sage advice, but, you made things MUCH easier. I truly enjoyed all the vacuum bagging, and I'm sure it made a better hull. You were part of what made this ha...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Congrats - I remember running it in the driveway for the first time connected to a garden hose. It was very fun!
Looks good!

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Maybe rethink getting it on the cradle - I can to it alone in about 45 minutes.. Its been on/off a few times over the years. The way I got it off: Moved front of boat to big sling at garage door made from truck duty ratchet strap. Then I jacked the boat and trailer straight up to a height that I kne...

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

I had a miserable process of jacking up the trailer and putting all 4 wheels on car dolly's. The garage it was kept in (not the shop) was just big enough to store it diagonally.. with a drop down tongue.. I had 3" clearance at the back corner and about 2" at the front. It was a pain.. back it in.. j...

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

FWIW: In my 13 years on my lake in Maine. I've never even put the registration numbers and sticker on my hull.. I keep it in the glove box just in case.. if I get pulled over - I'll let them "I just got the sticker and haven't put it on yet.." Can't even imaging putting a readable 12 digit number on..

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Nice :)

The Cutwater guy made mine.. I had trouble with the fitting.. At the time he was inside of a 2 hour drive so he came up and finished it off.
Even 100 hours is a lot. Yikes!

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.. (really? looks the same as last time I saw it....
