Re: Virginia Barrel

My advice/warning is to make sure that there are no air gaps between the layers and that everything is joined. Thickened epoxy and/or covering both sides with epoxy should help. You are going to spend a lot of money on epoxy, and there is nothing wrong with having many different types of epoxy on ha...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Also Matt, did you use 3/4 for the seats in your malahini? I think it calls for 3/8 in the plans. Bryan, I broke the 3/8” seat backer board on the Malahini seat bottom so I upgraded to 3/4”. Think about a 250 lb guy stepping from the dock to the exact spot where you have the least support under the...

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

That looks good. I am at the same point - I just flipped the boat and am now going to coat the interior before it gets loaded with crud. I am trying to decide if using Poxy Shield is fine (which I still have a lot), or I should order some SIlvertip epoxy - or some other that you suggest.

Re: Help with staining sides of boat

Thanks everyone. I ended up with a solution that really worked well. I used some heavily-thinned Sandusky filler/stain and went directly over the MinWax stained sides. It evened up the color very well, and gave it some redness, which I like. I like the dye idea - I need to just give it a try. The Sa...

Help with staining sides of boat

I have finished the sides of my 20' barrelback, and just finished putting on a MinWax Prestain conditioner and a MinWax Red Mahogany gel stain. The sides are very blotchy. I have built and stained a lot of furniture in my life, and have always enjoyed the MinWax products, but to be fair, I never use...

Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Thanks everyone for the great pictures! I have a stupid question for the group. What is the best way to remove the epoxy-dust after sanding the first epoxy layer. A damp cloth? A tack clock? Anything else?

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

This is hilarious. I too keep the epoxy in the house, it's nice to hear that I am normal. Well, maybe not "normal," rather I should say consistent with others. I'm going with the [flawed] presumption that I'm not crazy if there are other people doing the same thing.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

So Matt, I've been hoping to take a ride in your boat one day. I'm thinking that we need to time this ride when you are about to run out of gas!

Re: Purchasing engine for 20' barrelback

Thanks Roberta. I must be confused. I read that different people have different down-angles, and many people warn about having room for the prop and the ability to remove the prop.

Re: Purchasing engine for 20' barrelback

Thanks Tom. I think we talked about this some on one of your posts - appreciate you chiming in. I called your guy, and they have stopped selling the PCM EX343 in 5.7. Only 6.0 now. I will look elsewhere for the 5.7. I might have some luck with a place called Chamberlains (I think). And hopefully not...

Purchasing engine for 20' barrelback

I've been asking related questions on this site for the past several months, and now is the time when I need to purchase an engine I will be using so that I can properly drill the propeller shaft in the bottom of my 20 foot barrelback. As for me, I am a carpenter hobbiest who knows very little about...

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. ...
