Re: Maritime Malahini

Thanks. The tent has been a good investment. Looks like the same saw as mine.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl. Nick here. Really like the idea of leaving everything open and using folding chairs. Keeps things flexible and if you are going to do much fishing that open space will be much appreciated.

Re: Maritime Malahini

Absolutely love the Shinto saw rasp and now that I have been using a Japanese pull saw I will probably never by anything else.

Re: Maritime Malahini

I cut 1”x1” squares of half inch plywood, predrilled them, wrapped them in packing tape then added deck screws with steel washers. The tape keeps them from getting stuck. I used these first and removed them the next day when putting on the plywood. They provided great clamping pressure and I was abl...

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Thanks Carl. Not planning on using any stain. I like the look of the sapele with the epoxy. Pretty excited about where I am at. There is a chance I am ready to flip this year. Just have to figure out what I am going to do about paint. I plan on keeping the boat in the water when I finish it someday ...

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Finally finished attaching the hull planking. Starting Monday I have two weeks off from work and hope to have the hull fiberglassed during that time.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

I am making good progress on the bottom planking. I have to say working with 16’ long panels is a bit challenging.

Hull paint question

I am building a Vera Cruise cabin cruiser that I am planning on keeping in the water most of the summer with occasional trips on the trailer to a few fresh water lakes near by. Home will be in the Hudson River in upstate New York. I had thought to use Blue Water Revolution paint but it seems to be u...

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Carl. I saw your trick with the wood washers and made up a 5 gallon pail of them before I started. Added a steel washer and wrapped them in packing tape so they wouldn’t stick. Has worked well so far.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Working on the bottom planking now. It is challenging working with a 16’ sheet of plywood. A little nervous about the epoxy work. Even the extra slow hardener still feels like not enough time.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Finally got a little warm weather and was able to glue my last side panel on. Also did a little experimenting with the West system scarffing attachment for my circular saw. Pretty happy with the results.
