Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Bill is right, a lot can be done before the top deck. Some people do all the mechanical before the deck. I chose to finish the boat first, but did do some of the future work, I drilled the shaft hole, mounted the strut, located and drilled the rudder hole. I did prime the bottom of the deck plywood ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

No problem I appreciate the discussion. Will soon be making the decision. I have the CC steering box, but I may use something else.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Getting ready to drill the exhaust holes in the double transom of the barrelback.
Any advice? Will probably need larger holes in the interior to access the stud mount of the exhaust cones.
I bought the Glen-l 2 1/2 inch stainless ones on sale and they are beautiful.

Bob, a lot of the early work, you helped greatly with...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I did this because I had the product, and it worked well on the sides, and it is commonly done, other than the straight varnish me...
