Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I went with 3/4" seat back and bottoms for the same reasons as above. They're going to be used by people of all sizes to climb in and out of the boat!

Re: Florida Barrelback

I installed my transom as per the plans and do not have any issues with interference from the exhaust either. I did cut the inside plywood prior to gluing the camber boards and the remaining transom together, it was easier to do at that point. Don't forget to seal all that wood while its easy to get...

do I need 4wd?

I find myself in need of a truck and wondering if I will need 4wd to tow my boat off a ramp. I have pulled many a sailboat and smaller boats with wimpy cars, but I don't have a feel for this barrelback yet. Where we live in South Texas, its flat so 4wd is not required very often. I hate to pay the g...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

thanks Tom,
according to my engine supplier, forward position (toward flywheel) is forward, and back (away from the flywheel) is reverse.

I got it right!

Thanks everyone, more good news is that the neutral cut off switch (cant start the engine unless its in neutral) is in the transmission.

Transmission shifting

20200525_110528.jpg OK folks, I am getting ready to hook up my shift controls and researching which way the transmission shifts. I have the pcm 343 with the PCM 90 1:23:1 left hand rotation prop, down angle transmission. The convention is that if the shift cable is pushed toward the rear of the boa...

Re: Florida Barrelback

use the ring shank nails, but think about the locations of battons, carlins, shears etc. I had to cut through some nails because I put them right where I shouldn't have!

Re: Assistance with BB frames 4&5

I had the exact question 4 years ago!

They say to read all the paperwork before you start, the problem is understanding it all before you start.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Jim,
I had too much fore to aft curvature to do that so had to go the other way.

Good luck.

P-Billy, thanks, good to hear from you again!

I hope everyone had a nice Easter!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Jim, I don't have a picture of mine but others have them so go to this link and these are the same as I am using. I am hinging mine in the back so the single piece hatch lifts up from the front with the hinge in the back. http://www.glen-l.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25407&p=186250&hilit=hinge#p...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Thanks Hoodman, it seems to work pretty well, the foam is very light so the boards are plenty strong.

Pshychobilly, my fuel tank comes out (easier when empty I'm sure) so I can still get back there if I have to...but I hope I don't have to!

Bouyancy

I decided to put in some 1/8" plywood strips within the expanded foam and then screw those bits that stick out to the frames. You can see my foam molds with the slots for those plywood strips in the pics below. I then wrapped them in heavy duty garbage bags before installing the bouyancy. Hopefully ...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Carl, I'll echo what Roberta said, I'm doing all the wiring (and running fuel lines, blowers, etc) under the deck before I add the deck. Its so much easier to see and access while I can reach through the deck.

good luck!

Happy New Year everyone!
