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

Like to inquire about how you setup the steering in a barrelback.
Did you use cable, Hydraulic, or shafting?

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Getting ready to drill the exhaust holes in the double transom of the barrelback.

This has been a part time/ spare time project, with some significant time off for life...
Hope it floats after all this....

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

The product is much thinner than regular epoxy. I use it mainly to set or seal the stain. Traditionally you would start with a varnish thinned way down for a first coat. 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...
