Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

In answer to your questions and more: I measured from the chine to the top of the boat when I divided my sections for the planking. Where the butt joints were I made them follow the frames underneath, so they would be perpendicular to the water line. My thought was that when they built the original ...

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

This is how it turned out. I had to do a lot of spiling to get tight fits between the planks. I didn't use any filler in any gaps because I wanted the individual planking to be seen like on the original boats.

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Here are some pictures of how I did the planking on my boat. The first thing that I did was to make marks at each frame dividing the distance between the bottom of the boat to the top of the boat equally at each frame for six planks. The widths will be different at each frame point.The next thing th...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

My tip on spraying is to thin with naphtha. It makes it dry faster. 30 to 50% thinner. Play around with the ratios. Start with what the can of varnish says

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I sprayed all of my varnish. Looks like orange peel to me. I had some on my boat. I would sand until smooth, then sand up to 220 grit and give it another coat.
How was the varnish applied?

Re: Virginia Barrel

I ordered mine from Michigan motors also. Got the 4.3 mpi for my barrelback. They installed the velvet drive transmission on it. Good folks to deal with.

Re: Circular Saw

I like my magnesium makita saw. I bought it because it makes accurate plunge cuts. It will pivot on the base without moving around. I use diablo thin kerf blades. The trick is to keep them clean with a bit cleaner.

Re: Deck planking and gap

Classic boats had 1/8 caulk lines. See page 12 of my build. I coated the grooves with varnish before applying the caulk. Boat life caulk was great. Link below. Scroll down on page 12.

Re: Barrelback in san antonio

Here are pics of the drain holes. I used a router bit normally used for carving bowls. It is 1 1/4" wide by 5/8" deep. It makes a nice smooth cut so that nothing gets stuck in the drain. Each frame gets drains so that water can flow to the rear of the boat. Note the cross drains in the transom so th...

Re: Virginia Barrel

Hi Corey, I had the same question on the transom when I started my barrelback. The answer was "just make it larger, don't worry about the angle." If I remember correctly, I cut mine 1/4" larger. Any angle is determined once you attach the battens and fair everything to the shape that the battens mak...
