Re: Space Coast Barrelback

I used a lot of stainless steel screws...
Keep in mind ..you will probably encapsulate all the frames with epoxy I did on my flats flyer...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Go to page 10 of my build...
I have a few pictures...it drains to the bottom keel of the boat..
I put a bilge pump on each side of the keel...one pump is automatic...the other pump is manual....
Hope this helps...

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

I was going to put a live well in...the space were my transom speakers are at...and I still can...
But I had the same thought as you...it is done in boats all the time....I just could not drill any more holes in my Flyer...
I use a very nice cooler ...and my big one is a barrel cut in half..

Re: Flats Flyer Build in S.C.

Not shure where you live...
But my recommendation is you want a hatch that's very low profile the lower the better that way as you're walking across your decks and different places they don't become a tripping hazard

Re: Cutting BarrelBack frames

You...will eventually want to seal up these frames...
So being planed or sanded well ...will be a good idea...
Just my 2 cents...
