Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Matt!
You comment "right on" reminds me of that old Barry White song Never Gonna Give You Up where he sings "keep on doin' it, right on"
So now I have a song stuck in my head for when I'm workin' on the boat.

Re: Klondike Build

Hi Steve,
What an amazing project! I am impressed by both size and quality of the work you have done. You will have to get a drone to fly around it so we can see the entire boat. (the big picture) :lol: I am anxious to see what you will do next.

Thanks!
The frames are there, they are bronze and still need to be plated. If you enlarge the picture you can see them.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Here's the final windshield design. I figured out from pictures of original boats that there is a 3" rise from a straight line between the top of the windshield brackets so that's what I did. I put pieces of the black gasket under the patterns to check alignment with the deck. I like this desig...

Reference Material (pictures)

Just discovered this site for classic boats. It has lots of pictures of boats that can be used as reference material on boat builds. Once you get to the site, click on either classic boats for sale, or the archives. Each boat will have multiple pictures. Best site I have found yet! http://www.classi...

Re: monaco planking thickness

I would suggest using the 3mm okoume plywood ( 1/8"). I used Joubert okoume marine plywood on my boat. ( nice plywood with no voids or patches ) The plywood is much more stable than the mahogany veneer. Also, when you staple it to the battens and frames it won't split like the mahogany veneer w...

Re: Jenko's crackerbox

I work in a large toyota dealership in CA. I spoke to our parts manager this morning, and he told me that he can't get parts for items only sold in Japan.
Getting parts for that engine might be a problem if you go that route.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks for your input guys! Tom, my brackets don't seem to be as high as the ones in the picture you provided. I'm trying to replicate a 39-40 Barrelback. I got some brackets that are supposed to be accurate for that year. In that year, they also used Bugatti fold down windshields (picture below). A...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Back to the drawing board on the windshield patterns. David at Classic Boat Connection sent a picture that shows what the windshield should look like. Looks like a higher arch from the tops of the center and outer brackets than I did. Looks like about a 3" arch to me. I will make them over this...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

The weekend progress: Mounted the flanges for my vent openings. I decided to mount then from underneath so they don't show when looking into them under the vent scoops. Pickey, pickey, pickey. :roll: I also laid out my windshield brackets and determined the spacing for the other deck hardware. Lots ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I cut each plank close (slightly proud) the centerline of the keel. When I got one complete side done, I took a plane and trimmed that side down to the centerline. (it's like fairing all over again) After doing that, I planked the opposing side once again leaving that side slightly proud, and then o...

Bill provided a great link on this post with what other glen l builders have done regarding deck seams. It is a glen l resource document. Garry Stout, in that link had a bad experience with sikaflex. He said it was difficult to work with and had to remove it (a 20 hour job) and then went with the DA...
