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...

Re: Birth layouts and considerations

bow berths are V shaped by nessecity to match the shape of the bow. thus one side of the berth is much wider than the other. especially when there are 2 people sharing the berth, it is more comfortable for your little feet to be tucked into the small end as opposed to two heads, shoulders, arms etc....

Re: Paddleboard

It should be vented. These seem to be the best rated "automatic" vents:

I am using them in my SUP build. Just deciding between 1 or 2 for my board.
