Re: Seakeeper stabilizing system

Thanks Steve, I forgot if I had read it before and was actually wondering if you were using a stabilizing system. The company you went with and the stabilizing fins look top notch. I was not even looking into a stabilizing system. I was actually reading up on crab/lobster hoop net pulling systems an...

Re: Newbie in Oklahoma building barrelback 19 soon

Welcome! A few barrelback builders here in many different stages, so lots of design specific help available. I look forward to following along! I'm kind of just starting out as well with a True Grit extended to 27'. Lots of people around to help with pretty much anything so don't hesitate to ask! Oh...

Seakeeper stabilizing system

Sad to admit but starting the boat build is still on hold while other things are prioritized. I'm still researching and refining my plans. So while physical labor isn't occurring, some progress still is being made. While looking into other systems I recently came across a stabilizing system and was ...

Re: Waterproof wood glue

Does anyone ever use Franklin Brand Waterproof Wood glue for building a boat, or is that a bad idea? Titebond? Not the best idea for below the water line. Also, your joinery needs to be spot on as it's not a gap filling glue. There are applications where using it during a boat build shouldn't be an...

Re: Introduce myself

Hi Ron, Welcome! I'm a few hours north of you, a little north of Los Angeles. What design/s are you looking at? Joe Hi Joe. I have been eyeing the classic wood boats and now a small sailboat 12-18 ft. My problem is storage if I ever built one. I recently learned to sail in small-ish J-22 with the W...

Re: Desperado

I've been trying to think of what problems would be caused by shortening a design and I can't come up with any that would make it impossible. If you keep weight distribution balanced I don't see a non-starter. I second what was said before, get in touch with Glen-L through phone or email. Gayle has ...

Re: TrueGrit/CC Walkaround

Thanks Carl! I'm definitely trying to be as thorough as possible before I begin. I'm hoping that I can think through most of the steps so when I'm actually doing them it's just following my plans. It also gives me something to do while I'm wrapping up home projects before beginning cutting. I apprec...

Re: TrueGrit/CC Walkaround

Thanks Bruce! I like seeing plans and ideas that others have come up with. So if you can find it without too much trouble it would be nice to look at. I'm not sure if I'd be able to use the plans though, but perhaps someone else could. Being in California the requirements for zoning and permitting a...

Re: Storage question

I am clueless on this subject and living in Southern California I probably will never need to winterize my boat. That being said, I am interested in the answer to this topic.

What were the reasons people said to not wrap the boat? Humidity being trapped?
