Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Can anyone tell me about fastening their decking?

What fasteners did you use, what spacing, size of planking, width and thickness etc.
What width did you leave for caulk?
How did you finish the deck? Epoxy, Varnish, did you embed cloth? When did you caulk?

Thanks

Robert

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I have resumed working on the barrelback project. Just finished fitting the engine hatches. You can see the relief on the bottom-side to allow for additional engine clearance.

I can now continue laying all the deckwork.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Yea, I'll be super careful, as I DO NOT want to do this again. It was a boating accident, I was on my 52 foot Ocean Alexander and we were working on the boat and I stepped into a open hatch. I was lucky i was not injured worse. Hurt like hell. Went to two doctors and no one diagnosed it properly so ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Cutting the inside curve of the covering board. I used a small trim router in much the same way as planking the sides. I set a batten with the proper curve as a guide. I used an air nailer to temporarily Covering board 2.JPG fasten the batten and then used it to guide the trim router. The router is ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Got one side of the covering board on the boat today, Still have to mark and trim to form the inside edge, but after much thought it is coming together. Have done a stain sample for the dark color and it worked out well, Thanks to Jim Ritter of Sag Harbor for the advice and formula. (Fine steel wool...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I have some questions about the covering boards. Im ready to make them and am looking for advice. My stock will be 1/2 inch material. How did you make the joints in the covering boards? Did you have to edge glue to get wide enough stock? How did you set the curve? How did you cut the curve and how d...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Actually, I'll have to measure it. I built it off of the plans, and measured from the existing framing, so I didn't account for the extra length added, because the frames were already moved. I will measure and let you know though. It was interesting building the top framing. I scratched my head and ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

OK, I finally got the sub deck down, glued and fastened. I now get to start the finish work! Yea! I have been kind of slow, because I lost my father, who was a significant part of the reason I like boats. I always remember him having a boat and some of my fondest memories were of going on trips with...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

OK, so I've cut out the framing where the the engine hatches goes , so I could finish the sub structure. I know its overkill but I want to coat and paint the framework too. I plan on constructing the engine hatch frames in place in a fixed position. I'll probably screw the parts together on the oute...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Next question for the board, "How did you fabricate your engine hatches"? I am finishing the framing around the engine compartment, and was curious how people constructed the engine hatches. I was planning on building them within the opening, and sheeting them as one, with the subdeck, the...
