Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Hi Steve, As mentioned in the previous post, you might consider fiberglass pipe. The hose is expensive. Instead of pipe, I got some ski boat mufflers that are tubes around 3 feet long. I also made some supports for them that attach to a frame so there wouldn't be any dips on the way to the exhaust p...

Maybe Gayle can tell you what Ken's favorite color was.
By the way the design looks fantastic!

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

After installing the circuit breaker and bringing the wiring to the front panel, I completed the wiring to the fuse box. I also installed my GPS sending unit and calibrated it to the speedometer. Pics below:

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Here are pictures of the "drop down fuse box" . There are two tabs protruding from the backside of the dash with inserts that the bolts screw into.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl,
I got an inverter from HFT for around $40. for 750 watts. I hard wired into my 5th wheel trailer. It works just fine for running the TV & dvd player etc. Also good for charging things. Saves me from running the generator. Might also run a blender for making margaritas :wink:

Re: modified malahini

I used indoor/outdoor carpet from Home Depot. It's cheap and works just fine. 20 bucks worth should be enough.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Yep.
It loops around so that when the lever is forward the transmission is in the forward position.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looks great, Carl!
By the way, you mentioned earlier about putting something on the bottom of the anchor compartment. Looks like I will have extra white vinyl floor mat from classic boat connection, It has your name on it if you decide to go that way.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Hi Carl, Yes it is. They are pvc fittings like you would use for sprinklers. The "y" threaded fitting has one opening with a threaded 1/2 opening and two with threaded 3/4 openings. (couldn't find a fitting with three 1/2" threaded openings.) I got reducers that took the 3/4 openings down to 1/2". I...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Last weekend was bilge pump weekend. For proper placement, I had to find the deepest spot in the boat, I took measurements from the top of my motor stringers to the keel at different points. To confirm the placement, I put a level on a motor stringer and lowered the trailer until it read level on th...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

You are correct it's an isolated block not a common buss. I also got the metal pieces that can be screwed down so that one input can serve mutiple output sources. For example my light circuit input serves the guage lights, my bow light, and the flag pole light at the stern. Link Below: https://www.a...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Hi Jim, Nice wiring job, looks clean and well organized. I also wired my dash last weekend. My dash is also removable, so I was able to do all of my wiring on my workbench. I also mounted a "drop down" fuse box separate from the dash for easy access, but not visible. All of my hot lines go into the ...
