Re: Texas Barrelback 20 - tool caddy

Guys, for the last 3 days, I have not had to go into my boat for a lost tool dropped down through the unfinished deck!

How many of you can say that??

I built a tool caddy, it took 20 minutes and has already saved that much time!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20 - fuel tank

Folks, I literally happened across what appears to be an authentic Chris Craft fuel tank. See the pictures below and my google search of Chris Craft fuel tanks shows a few that look very similar. I need a fuel tank. This one is kind of cool. and its $128. It looks like its in good shape and maybe ga...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Jim,
your boat is looking great!

What stain color is your coverboard?

It looks fantastic against the other deck and side color.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

This is my first coverboard joint. its a bit tedious but fun to do.

The board on the right is toward the bow, the next one back still needs trimming both inboard and outboard. I wanted to get the joint right before I trimmed the back one.

I only have about 5 more to go!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

PeterG,
I was curious why you wouldn't move the throttle sensor off the engine as I was thinking to do just that! The wire from the sensor seems long enough I could attach it right to frame 3.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Shaun, thanks for the link. I decided on some other hinges that will accommodate the curved profile and are flat. I have another general question about throttle cables on the engine end. I assume that the engine end can be taken off the engine and mounted elsewhere because it has an electrical conne...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Jim,
I just took some measurements. If I put a straight edge along where my hinges go, I have a 1/4" gap at the front and back. I'm scratching my head at the moment and doing research....which could involve whiskey!

I sure appreciate you posting sir!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Thanks Bill and Billy. That's what I figured as the curvature I am seeing is only about 1/4 inch.

You guys are awesome with the prompt responses!

Happy Easter everyone!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

so, I have another silly question. I'm working on my engine hatch and am matching the curve of the deck (fore and aft) on the hatch (as well as side to side) and it occurred, how does the piano hinge work on a curve? I can think of 3 options: 1) it doesn't 2) you make the hinge flat and the deck fla...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I used scraps of the 1/8" plywood, cut into 1" squares and used the longer 9/16" staples to staple through them and through the last layer of mahogany veneer. Once the resin was relatively dry, a knock on the plywood square with a piece of wood or a hammer would shear it off. The ends...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Bill,
I was just going to mount my engine off the back like an outboard, so much easier to fit it in and attach it with my raptor staples. :lol:

I will call Gayle, I was able to find it on Glenwood...$112 for my 1" rudder

Re: Key Largo - Motor Decision

Kens,
to concur with what you said, my brand new 5.7L (350) PCM weighed in at 1041 lbs (but that did include the wooden pallet and transporation wood).
