Re: Joel Bauer’s Coronado (Laurel Lynn)

I asked Boise Brit to post a photo of his scarfing jig. I know you can scarf plywood but I’ve not done it. On my smaller projects (sailboat and kayak) I butt-joined the plywood and glued and screwed a “seam backer” of the same material.

Re: Joel Bauer’s Coronado (Laurel Lynn)

Boise Brit gave me the idea for a scarfing jig (table saw) that has saved me a lot of time and given me solid joints. Sounds like you are ready to go, but I (or Bryan) will be happy to share the idea.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

The cover board was about 3/8 proud of the plywood decking, so the planking ended up at 5/16...to reduce the amount of shaping required! I got a thin kerf blade for my table saw... and was able to get three pieces of 5/16 from a 5/4 board. This allowed for a pretty good color and grain match as I co...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Making steady progress on my build. I have all the front deck veneers in place (pictures to follow). I opted against using a zillion staples and went with silicone bronze screws where they hit a batten and temporary screws (3/4 inch drywall screws I had laying around) where they did not. I only used...

Re: Key Largo Build - Boise/Charleston

Great afternoon in Boise with Bryan and his wife. His build looks great and I definitely have shop envy!

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Making progress on my Key Largo. I have the front plywood decking in place and have milled all the sapele boards for the deck veneer. I've also made some progress on the steering. I installed a hydraulic cylinder and just yesterday, drilled out the frames for the hydraulic hoses. The hoses/fittings ...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Thanks all. The caulking with UV resistance sounds like a winner. Charleston is extremely humid...so maybe an issue with epoxy "caulk". I will have a 1/4 plywood base...and ~5/16-3/8 planks.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I have started the decking on my build. I've got a long way to go before needing this answer, but thinking ahead as is my pattern. For the "caulking" between the deck boards, I've seen some apply varnish over the top. Jim used a special spray tip to paint his white, after applying varnish. There is ...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

As Bryan knows...I also used petit sealer over the filler stain. In my case, I had also epoxied and glassed the sides. While planing the sheer, after the flip, I noted that the glass peeled away ... too easily! I ended up scoring it and peeling it back to prevent rough tear out. I imagine I’ll be re...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Thanks...good advice from the forum, as always. I ended up buying a bow eye (ubolt) in stainless, with 4 3/4 inch threaded shank. That should get me through the stem or close enough for reasonable counter sink. If that doesn't work, I'll try the threaded rod option, but it's hard to find a tradition...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

<t>Jim:<br/> <br/> In your most recent photo the frame you added at the back of the front seat is covered by a blanket. There is nothing on the plans to show how to make this frame curve. I assume you made it to follow a natural curve from the cover boards at that position? I'm building my center fr...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I want to install a bow eye before I put the front decking in place. I ordered one from Glen-l. It's a high quality unit but does not come close to fitting the beefy hook and safety hook on my trailer. I looked at a less beefy hook, which fits, but still doesn't accommodate the safety hook. I found ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I bought the Glen-L fastener kit so I'm wedded to the silicone bronze screws. Getting bronze screws completely set without stripping the head, with my impact driver, is nearly impossible. I use the driver to get them started and stop the first time the bit "hops." From there I use my forearm driver....
