Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Take a look from my build link below. the cockpit is all there but in little sections it's been pulled out of the boat waiting to be put back in for final Assembly but at least you can get the idea what I did.

Re: veneer reveals hull flat spot

Here are my thoughts: First, will it be really noticeable? But if you are like me, it will drive you nuts if you don't fix it. If you decide to fix, I would remove a section of the final veneer planking, and then fill in the underlayers with quick fair. Sand until you get rid of the flat spot, and t...

Re: gorilla glue

When I first started my build, I had very little experience with epoxy. I was only familiar with Titebond 1 part glue and didn't like the idea of mixing up 2 part glue with a cure time. I got some poxy-grip epoxy from Glen-L. It is now my preferred glue. Why worry about some other glue, when epoxy i...

Re: Hello from Bolton, UK

Welcome!
A couple of hand tools I would recommend is a block plane, and a japanese saw. The saw is the best thing I have found for cutting notches, and trimming. (pic below)

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Here's what happened over the weekend. Got my cutwater and transom bands from Cutwaters by Mike. He did a perfect job, and they were a perfect fit. He said I should put beeswax between them and the varnish so I did. I put the rub rails on the spray rails. If you look carefully you can see the black ...

Re: 3M 5200

What Peter said is correct. That's why restorations must have 5200 bottoms. Epoxy is the best way to go on a new boat.

Re: Varnishing Tips

Looks fantastic!!!
Consider yourself a varnish master. You will be ready when you vanish the rest of the boat.
Glad it worked out for you.

Looking good Matt!
I found another picture of the plank seams on an original boat that shows better than the pictures I posted earlier.

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

If you are thinking about a new saw.... This is the jet bandsaw that I have used for years. Works on 110 volts. Will go up to 12" in height. It resaws with ease. When I resaw, I use a 1/2" 3tpi timberwolf blade. I also wipe the blade down with pam cooking spray before I resaw. (a tip from ...

Re: Layout Table

Hi Joe, I made a table out a nice piece of 3/4" 4x8 birch plywood and straight 2x4's. It's flat. The legs are saw horses. I coated it with polyurathane so things didn't stick. Epoxy was easy to get off with a scraper. Later I cut the table down the middle so that I had two 2x8 table tops. Now I...

Re: Wake board tower questions

More great ideas!!!! Two motors would be a good idea, that way I could keep goin' and make margaritas with the other one! Tom, I hadn't thought about how people would tie up to the cantina. I have some John Deer tractor tires that would work just fine as protection for my cantina (not for boat prote...
