Re: You don't need tie down straps.

You know there is a lot to be said for deep v hulls. Notice how nicely it stayed on the roof of the truck without falling off.

Re: Brisbane Squirt

I made my templates from 1/2" mdf.
It's easy to shape and it is thick enough for a flush trim router bit to ride against when you trim the good hardwood.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Last weekend I got a step closer to the motor install. I got the engine off of the pallet and onto my mock-up of the motor stringers and support brackets. The mock-up made it easy to adjust the motor mounts for proper placement. I found out that I will need to shorten one of my engine mounting brack...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hi Matt,
Bet you could squeeze some famowood mahogany putty into the gap if it bugs you. You might not even notice once you get the stain and finish on the dash.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Got my gantry assembled this weekend. It took 4 of us to raise it up. Kind of like a barn raising but without the women cooking dinner and all of the other festivities. Next I had to rent a 14 foot step ladder to position the hoist and add additional bracing. I don't want anything go move when I dro...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl, If I heard you right, you said both cleats on the same side of the boat. Don't forget, you can't always find a dock on one side of the boat. Think launch docks, and docks where one side is full. I would put two cleats on each side of the boat. Position them where the dock lines will be You ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I have a separate nav switch that controls the front light and the rear flag pole light independent of the key on/off switch. You might be parked somewhere with the motor turned off and want to be seen. My gauges are wired to the key on switch because if I am running at night, I want to know what th...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Hi Matt,
I got my bow pole and the stern pole at classic boat connection. The stern pole is wired with the connector to put into the standard plug.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

You will want to use scarf joints. You will want to also use them when you get to making the battens as they are even longer. Glen-L has a detailed page on scarf joints. I made a jig so that I could cut the scarf joints with my router. The ratio was somewhere between 1:8 and 1:12 for the scarf angle...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Jim! The boat is basically done except for installing the motor. I have everything in place ready for dropping the motor in the boat. Motor mount brackets, electrical, fuel, plumbing, and exhaust are all in place. Next weekend I will probably assemble my gantry, and drop the engine in the boa...
