Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Thanks. Any insight on grounding wires for the filler hose/rest of fuel tank?

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Bill: The rudder only moves about 30-35 degrees port and starboard! Thanks for confirming that I did it correctly. My boat mechanic (for our other power boat) recommended the hydraulic steering. It was pricey, but I'm pleased with the way it works...or seems to work in the shop and while stationary ...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Took the build down to the boat ramp for a "float." Wanted to make sure the rudder and strut were water-tight before I put in the gas tank and rear deck. It floated! No leaks. I expected a little drip from the rudder stuffing box, but it was dry. I have the hydraulics hooked up and I worked the stee...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

My mistake...option three will not work. Frame two has a keel to top of frame support. Exhaust has to go outside the motor stringers.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Building a key largo and finding some differences between my build and barrelback. My engine will be mounted behind the front cockpit, one frame further forward than barrelback. I'm fitting the sole (floorboards) of the boat and realize that I only have 3" clearance between the frames and the sole. ...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Making slow and steady progress. Have the port side cover board shaped and the starboard side cover board roughed out. I built the front seat and hooked up the hydraulic steering. Will test the steering this weekend, as it's a two person job. Dashboard installed and am planning on adding the plywood...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Thanks Tony. On the Key Largo, the plans show a frame cut-out to accommodate the shaft and specifies reinforcing on both sides with plywood, both of which which I've done. From your post, it sounds like I just need the angle bracket to provide some extra reinforcement on that frame. That's easy...in...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

A question I asked in a previous (long) post. The (Key Largo) plans show a metal angle bracket, on both sides of frame 2. I'm assuming this metal bracket is required only on frame 2? ...as it is not shown on other frames in the plans (the wooden mounting brackets on the motor stringer is shown on ev...

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...

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