Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

I am soooo kicking myself for not adding that 3rd garage bay when we built our home! My kids are almost out of the house and I could use a new project. My wife didn't say "absolutely not" last night at dinner, but she is not going to park outside in the Michigan winters. Love only goes so far! :D I ...

Re: Fisherman

I would recommend using a lower grit (60) to knock down the majority of the filler, and then use a hard backed sanding block or long board to do the final leveling. With the random orbital sander (ROS) you risk digging into the plywood around the filler and creating a low spot. Using a sanding block...

Re: Chine landing

Clamp it to the stem and adjust it up and down to get a fair curve from the rest of the frames. This is typical of all the Glen L designs.

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

That looks like an oil filled vacuum pump. Just make sure to put the pump outside of your work area, since it may put out a fine vapor of oil that may spoil later finishes and epoxy.

Nice set up, I'd be interested but it will be a while before my next build.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Whenever I cut African mahogany it had a lot of internal stress and would bind up the blade. Make sure your splitter is lined up properly, and maybe have a helper use a wedge on the out feed. No one in the area with a decent bandsaw?

Re: Building the PeeWee in Germany

Typically the motor board is there to provide enough thickness for the motor to clamp to and support the vibrating gas engine. If you are going for a slow, low powered electric outboard, you may be able to leave this off. I would check out the clamps on the intended motor to make sure you don't need...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Did they take all your receipts? I was disappointed when they said they needed the originals, since I wanted to be able to save these. But I was pleasantly surprised several months later when a big envelop came from the MI S.O.S. and they had returned all my receipts. Not sure why you had to report/...
