Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

I am far from an expert, but I understood that many of these classic boats are susceptible to “hook”. Hook meaning that they are on plane/at speed and the sharp bow of the boat is out of the water. Then a wake or wave comes in from an angle and the bow catches it and pulls the bow hard to one side w...

Re: Florida Barrelback

Can’t wait to see it take shape!

I am 3 kids, 2 moves and 7 years into mine. Hope to flip sometime before 2025 and finish by 2040.

Re: Annapolis barrelback 19

Just went to Exotic Lumber in Annapolis. They have been my source for the oak frames and the okume. However, they were unwilling to kill mahogany in anything less than 1/2 inch or so.

Going to call neels guy in PA now.

Annapolis barrelback 19

Hi all, I have been away from my build for 2 years due to a move, work, etc. I am now back into it and need to order some mahogany. Was planning on getting 1/8th in thick by 5-6” wide planks as long as they will make them for me. Anyone have any idea how many board feet for the hull and deck? I can’...

Moving a boat

Hi forum, I have half built a barrel back 19 and am moving houses. I only have to go a mile, but it is still upside down attached to the busing frame and not ready to be flipped (maybe less than half bulit). The hull is on, just not finished. I built it on dollies for ease up access in my garage. I ...

Re: barrel back 19 in annapolis

I have been lurking and watching on the boards. Sadly, My build stalled as I built a SUP for my wife and a kayak for my daughter in the last year. I am happy to report though that my raptor staples showed up last week and I plan to go buy a lot of 1/8 okume this week!

Wwrd -what would Roberta do

I think I cut my notch to deep for the sheer on one frame symmetrically. It looks like there won't be enough material to fair properly. However, all other frames look good. So- can I add a strip from the frame before to the frame after to build up the material at the bad frame and taper it into the ...

Re: barrel back 19 in annapolis

I have got to the point of installing the side batons for framing. I have attempted 2 so far, I have cracked one and split one in the most forward bend. Does this step require steaming? (I don't own a steamer). Have people had good success with the towel and boiling water? If so, how long do you lea...
