Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

It’s that time of year again. My children are growing up thinking it’s perfectly normal to find jugs of epoxy in the oven.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hoodman, The trailer is the 2nd reason (engine 1st) I bought this particular boat. I will cut off bunks and re-weld them to fit the narrower Barrelback. I might add a $500 surge brake kit, I hate trailers pushing me when I’m trying to stop. As a point of interest, the Supra hull with almost nothing ...

All useable parts removed from the Supra Ski boat so she got hauled to the boat crusher today.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I just finished putting a 572 (9.4L) in my old suburban, this beast would be a great boat engine, 700 ft/lbs of torque and 625 hp all below 5200 rpm!!
Back to boat building, sorry about the deviation from approved forum content.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I ordered a roll of this heavy duty rubber material to secure exhaust hoses. Might work or it might be a bust. Matt B https://rubbersheetwarehouse.com/products/neoprene-rubber-strips-60a-medium-hardness?variant=21540262083¤cy=USD&network=g&device=m&keyword=&campaign=1473377428&adgroup=pla-2939...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I need a way to hold my exhaust hoses in place. The hoses are fairly rigid and curve nicely from the engine to the transom exits but I want to manipulate their path a little bit and need a strap or something to give a pull in a couple places.
Ideas?

Re: modified malahini

Hi Bryan,
Nice to see your progress, good work. At this stage of a build I get to feeling overwhelmed with the challenge of bringing all the parts together. All part of the fun, enjoy!

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Nothing glued and screwed but a rough idea of my seat to pulley clearance. Keep your posts coming, always good to have another builders approach.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Looks great Jim, I agree engine access through the back seat is a must to reach the front of the engine. How much clearance do you have from your water pump pulley to the back seat? I’m doing 2 inches of clearance on mine.
