Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Bob, You've been a inspiration and knowledge base from the beginning of this adventure. I know I would have probably gotten here without your sage advice, but, you made things MUCH easier. I truly enjoyed all the vacuum bagging, and I'm sure it made a better hull. You were part of what made this hap...

Ya Hoo!

The motor is in and the exhaust and water feed are plumbed.
Feels like a milestone.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

That's whats taking the extra time. I'll have access to everything, and I can pull the rear bench and have even more. I do have freshwater cooling which adds some height to the whole assemble. That required a whole round of fitting a half frame on the inside of the existing one. I wonder what kind o...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

OK, the motor is set and the coupler aligns, ...
That was not a easy job. Lots of fitting in a really tight space.
I wonder how anyone puts a V-8 in these with a standard rear bench.
I built the 20 foot version and its still a squeeze.
All will work fine. I'm getting excited!

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...
