Re: Motor stringers

After the motor stringers were both glued up. I clamped them together to cut the notches for the frames. I did them both at the same time to insure that the frames would be in alignment.

Re: Motor stringers

I made my motor stringers by laminating two sapele boards together with scarf joints away from where the engine would be. I checked for straightness during the lamination process. Screws were used in the gluing process. They came out perfectly straight. (the lamination process will result in straigh...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Last weekend was spent painting my caulk lines and repainting the waterline. After many coats of varnish, the stripes and waterline took on a yellowish tint, so I painted them with Interlux white striping and boottop paint. The picture shows a before and after on the stripes so those that want to go...

Stainless Steel Screw Holder

As you know stainless steel screws don't work with magnetic screw driver tips. Its a real pain sometimes holding the screw in place in different positions. When installing my wiring connectors, I came up with something that holds the screw on my screw driver. I cut off a piece of one of the heat shr...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Hi Biss, There has been much discussion about adhesion problems with epoxy over oil based stain. People that use oil based stains put CPES epoxy on top of the stain as a sealer before continuing with the normal epoxy. I only have varnish over my stain. I have had success with interlux chris craft ma...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I wanted the classic look but the function of a cable system. I used a seastar helm mounted to a bracket that I made, with a cable running back to the teller. Easy to adjust and center the wheel with the tiller. I got a 3/4" shaft and had a taper put on it so it would connect to my steering wheel. T...

Re: Winch Recommendations

You might want to study the setup that was on the custom trailer for the runabout that I used to have. You will notice that the "stop" is lower, and the winch is in line with the bow eye. I would set my trailer down on the ramp so that the fenders were about 1" out of the water in the front, drive t...

Re: Monte Carlo coverboards

In answer to your question on the material for the coverboards, I used mahogany stained with Sandusky walnut stain like they did on the original boats.

Re: Monte Carlo coverboards

Mine's a Barrelback, but I would think the process would be the same for your boat. My plywood subdeck butted up to the coverboards. The coverboards were not on top of the subdeck. My coverboards are in sections. I made a pattern out of mdf using it so that each opposing coverboard was a mirror imag...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I bought the router cutter like Bob has. I was planning to use it to cut my exhaust port holes. I don't trust my router skills, so I bought a hole saw set from Harbor Freight, and used it instead. It was real easy and didn't damage any of the finished veneer on the transom. It goes up to cutting a 5...

Re: attaching ply subdeck

My barrelback's plans called for a 1/4" subdeck with a 1/8" veneer for a total of 3/8" thickness. The 1/4" subdeck conformed to the underlaying support easily so I just used staples to hold in place until the epoxy cured. If you are using 3/8" subdeck, you probably will want to screw down especially...

Re: modified malahini

8. Fuel line must meet USCG requirements with shutoff valve.
Thanks for your list Bill.

Thought I had everything covered. Bought a shutoff valve at lunch. I also read that an in-line valve must be mounted to something, not loose on the hose. So I bought the one that can be mounted.

Hi Aaron,
Here's a link to a previous posting of the worktable I made. It's pretty simple and breaks down for storage.
