Re: What is the complete finishing sequence?

Prayer and meditation is a good place to start a varnish job. 😀

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hmm, fire suppression bottle location? Pointed at the fuel pump and tank seems logical to me, thoughts?

Thanks guys! Wish I could fast-forward things a bit, but I guess slowly but surely is just fine.
Enjoy the journey

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Blower setup. All my cables are a mess, I’ll get them sorted out and tucked away later.

Re: modified malahini

Tried to do some work on the boat this morning. 19degrees out. Tried to epoxy floor support in. Warmed epoxy hitting cold wood gets too thick to spread quickly. Space heater went on the fritz. A quick trip to Home Depot for a new heater and I did get piece into place. I think I'll wait for warmer t...

Re: Ian's TNT Build

You may find the rack and pinion system too wide. On my Squirt I used a simple rotary steering, (motor can turn the wheel) it fits nicely behind the little Squirt dash. Matt B Beautiful top deck and Dash Matt! Thanks for the tip on the Rack, I think it will just fit in my situation. I googled the i...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

The Lenco actuators i used freewheel at the end of the stroke going open and slip when going closed so no limit switches are required. Roberta Can you explain this more? I don’t get it. My actuator has internal limit switches, it just stops when it reaches full stroke. Am I missing some needed feat...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I was thinking about the actuator hatch for mine as well. I see you went with one big door as opposed to 2 smaller. Can you walk me through the thought process here? One big one-weight doesn’t matter since being lifted with actuator, one simpler than 2? Vs classic look? More of an opening w 2? Easi...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Linear actuator for hatch in, just a rough fit but working. I had to sand a corner of the hatch for proper fit.

Re: seat backs

I make my seat backs about 10 degree recline and angle the whole seat back about 10 degrees so you don’t slide forward.
