Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Oh, also bought a $29 dollar drill from Harbor Freight that was a right angle drill, (With plug, no battery!) that worked really well on the tight quarters....

FYI

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Finished installing the floor and the two bulkheads yesterday. Ready for the cockpit sides and construction of the seating. I've made and finished the seat frames, now just fitting them. I'll post some more pictures shortly.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Seats are coming along nicely, I will post a picture shortly.
What I could really use is some pictures of how people have run their
wiring. Did you notch the frames to accommodate or did you drill each frame?
I'm curious as to how everyone does it....

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.

Did you use cable, Hydraulic, or shafting?
I have a CC steering box,

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.
