Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Don't know. I guess if someone had a steep driveway it would prevent scraping.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

You know, I have never seen casters on a boat trailer either. I gave the trailer guy measurements via emails and was surprised to see them on the trailer when I picked it up. How did he know that I was such a bad driver. :lol:

Re: Hi from Maryland - building the Malahini

I asked a restoration guy at a Lake Tahoe boat show about the glossy bottom paint that I have seen. He said that they use varnish over the bottom paint. The bottom paint that I used was pettit copper bronze racing bottom paint. It was not very shiny after it was applied, so I coated it with varnish ...

Re: Electric, Electric/Hydraulic, or Hydraulic Surge

You mentioned drum brakes. My previous trailer had drum brakes and worked with a 4 pin connector.

Re: Electric, Electric/Hydraulic, or Hydraulic Surge

Surge breaks are fine. I had a larger boat with surge breaks with drum breaks and they worked just fine. If you go with the electric assist, you will need a brake controller and the wiring in your tow vehicle, including the 7 pin plug. The trailer will need a "break away kit" which involve...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Hi Robert, Take a look at my build (link below) on one of the last pages (scroll down) and you will see how I did it. It shows how I attached the bow lift eye to the stem at the front. For the rear, I have a bronze rod that goes down through the 6 or so inches of the pieces that are attached to the ...

Re: Barrelback 20'

The cockpit in the the Barrelback is pretty far forward. With that in mind, I think you will be ahead of any spray. I have never seen full length spray rails on any classic runabout. Take a look at this site, there are lots of examples of classic runabouts. Like Neel said if you are uncertain, you c...

Re: Electric, Electric/Hydraulic, or Hydraulic Surge

My trailer was built with disc surge breaks. It came with the 5 pin plug so that the breaks would release when backing up. I got an adapter that allowed me to plug the 5 pin into into my 7 pin trailer connection. If you need to use the 4 pin plug, my trailer hitch came with a metal pin that you can ...

Re: Barrelback 20'

This is how I did my spray rails. They are copies of the original Chris Craft Boats. As I remember, they are about 4 feet long.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Here's the weekend part two. Installed the rub rails. There are two long pieces on each side. You want the seam to be at a relative straight section of the boat. Mine ended around the back seat area. Had to trim the ends to line up with the cutwater and transom bands. There are custom made mahogany ...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Here's the weekend progress: One of the many things that I did this weekend was to install the forward and aft lift rings. They are functional, but they will be only used for retrieving the boat on the front ring, for ski ropes on the transom ring, and for attaching dock lines. The front lift ring r...
