Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Hi Bob! It turned out nice, but it was an immense amount of work, like about 200 hours, although I didn't keep strict track. I made a steel one as a trial, and I had the cut water guy make one which, while looking good, wouldn't have fit. So my options were to make it myself, or go with a stem bead....

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

These tomahawk shapes were purchase from Classic Boat Connection and were used. I had to have them re chromed, Classic Boat Connection can also supply the trim ring, which really finishes it off nicely.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

OK, so the lifting eyes are installed. How are these normally sealed/or are they sealed? I could use a number of things to bed them. The clearance is small I could also put a "oring" on the eye... Quite a bit of fiddling to get these right. Ended up having to put a small bend in the rod to allow for...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Thanks Bob. I appreciate the comments, I was wondering what you thought. You've been such a help during this process... The cutwater is pretty art deco, very fluid. It took ALOT of my autobody experience to figure out how to make a flat sheet into it. I want to see it finished and polished... This i...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Here are some pictures of the cut-water. It is still a work in progress.
I'm ready to drill the mounting holes and polish. This took alot of work.
Made a test one out of mild steel first.
The stainless had to be TIG welded.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Bob, I will take a picture of the cut water. Its taken a lot of work. I probably have 80 hours in it... I didn't really keep track, we made a test out of steel, before the stainless, just to check the pattern. If I didn't have a very rounded prow, a more conventional cut water would have worked. It ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

aprox. We planed to a finished thickness. My goal was to use thick material on the top deck so, I can sand and refinish the top if I ever have too. I can measure the total thickness tomorrow. I made cuts in the covering board so I didn't have to use (or edge glue the covering board) as wide a materi...
