Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I think you got your holes switched up! The one on the left should be on the right, and vice-versa.

Re: Tahoe 23

Tom H and Tom B Thanks for all of your details and comments. I have been a silent follower of this thread for some time. I am building a 20' barrel back and am also about to purchase an engine. I have not been successful in finding a 4.3L V6 with fuel injection, so will likely be using the PCM 343. ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

That looks amazing. In case you didn't know, I too am building a barrelback, and may also be on the "8-year plan". I am encouraged by your picture of your boat, but nervous about the picture of you curled into a ball doing the wiring. I am 6'5" and I do not "curl." I may need to take this into consi...

Re: Need help on finding a motor for a 20' barrelback

Thanks for everyone's help. I spoke with Michiganmotorz again, and they do have the exact solution that Jim mentioned - thanks for the help! Jim, I assume that if you had to do it again, you would make the same decision with the carburetor V6? Of course having extra horse power/torque to take off so...

Need help on finding a motor for a 20' barrelback

I am getting near the point where I will be finished with the bottom planking, and will want to drill a hole for the propeller shaft and rudder. Trying to gather suggestions from across several posts, I believe that I should have a motor picked out so that I can properly position the holes. I would ...

Where are you getting 40-grit sandpaper for this Triton belt sander? Thinking of buying it, but the coarsest paper I can find online is 80 grit.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hey Matt
Maybe you can allow the engine to encroach a bit into the backseat area in the middle, but still allow for deeper seating on the sides. See my simple picture below.

Re: Question: Battens on the Barrelback

Thanks again for everyone's comments. I purchased a Wagner wallpaper steamer and a thick PVC pipe, and last night I had good success bending/twisting the battens on the boat - impossible (for me, at least) without steaming. I took the advice and move very quickly after removing the piece from the st...

Question: Battens on the Barrelback

I am installing the battens on the side of the boat, and there is plenty of bending and twisting that is required. For the most part, I am able to sufficiently bend the battens without too many snapping. However, as I go lower to the ground (which will be the top of the boat when it is flipped), the...

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

I have a question for Jim Neely. Thank you for your picture, it looks awesome. I notice that you still have the boat on a wooden stand. Is the engine in the boat? And if so, how do you plan to lift the boat onto a trailer?
