Re: Question: Battens on the Barrelback

Hi DavO, On my barrelback build, I did just that. Purchased a wallpaper steamer and created a steam box out of PVC pipe. You will be surprised as to how easy the steamed battens are to bend into shape. As to your concerns about added expense; I found that less expensive than having to continually re...

That is one cool looking boat! She's beautiful, Bill. You've been a true inspiration for me during my build.

Re: Build planning - When/how to chose the engine

Thought I'd attach another picture of my barrelback. This was the first time that I had it out for an extended period and spent most of the day giving people rides. I was very happy with how it performed. Still need to add the windscreen, cutwater, rub rail, spray rails and interior.

Re: Build planning - When/how to chose the engine

I keep it out of the water. That picture is from last weekend up north.

Re: Build planning - When/how to chose the engine

Jay,

I live in Muskego and have built the barrelback19 (still have some things to finish up). If you decide on the barrelback, you're more than welcome to stop by and check out my build.

Re: Fuel Tank Ground

Thank you for the response Bob. My question to the forum is advice on how to wire the fuel filler so that it is grounded correctly. I am unsure of how to do this and I want to make sure that I have it absolutely correct! My tank is poly and I understand that I need to run a ground from the filler to...

Fuel Tank Ground

As I get ready to permanently install the 30 gallon poly fuel tank in my barrelback 19 build, I know that I need to ground the tank due to the build up of static electricity when filling and as the gas sloshes around inside the tank. As I understand it, I can run a ground wire from the fuel filler h...

Re: Riviera

Hi Dennis. Good to see another WI builder in the mix. That makes at least 4 of us (Svenole, Roberta) that I know of. I am down in Muskego and building a barrelback19 which I hope to have in the water for at least some sea trials later this month.

Re: Wisconsin Barrelback

Most runabouts that I have seen have ceilings; I suppose the main reason is for aesthetic reasons, to give the cockpit a more finished look. Functionally, it provides structure to attached the shift lever. I may be thinking of something different when I refer to ceiling of a boat. Aren't those the &...

Re: Wisconsin Barrelback

To those that have built similar boats, what thickness have your ceiling boards been?

Re: Wisconsin Barrelback

Installed the hinges on the hatch of my barrel back yesterday. Once I had those lined up and a few screws installed to ensure that all lined up, I removed then and cut the hatch free. Once the hatches were cleaned up, I re-installed them with the hinges then measured, cut and installed the hatch bin...

Re: Wisconsin Barrelback

Thanks Alycat. My hinge and hatch binding arrived and I have measured and layed those out. Hope to temporarily install this weekend and then cut the hatch loose. Been wondering how to go about laying out the ceilings; if I want to go with the more tradational planked look or the one piece padded app...

Re: Wisconsin Barrelback

In the last few weeks I've been able to finish the aft deck planking and complete and install the seat framing. Here are some pictures of my progress. Currently waiting delivery of my hatch hinges and trim. I will install those before I cut the hatch loose to make sure everything lines up in the end...

Good to hear Mike. I'll be reaching out to you in the next couple weeks for a cutwater and transom bands for my barrelback build!

Re: hull id #'s

Thank you again! Les' is just down the road and I drive past it every day going to work. My daughter and I will be at the boat show Friday...I'll look you up. I assume you'll be with the Glacier Bay folks?
