Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Another tip I picked up was to do test cuts in line with a frame or some other reference point. These would be about an inch wide and representative of just a small bit of the fairing. But when taken together with other small cuts in the same area, it became much easier to see what had to be done. ...

Re: Aussie Belle

Oh man. I haven’t seen this thread yet and will have to read/catch up on how you arrived here but it is really stunning. Love the wood finish/paint combination. Very subtle and elegant looking.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I sympathize with the wood issue completely! I’ve purchased a fair amount of Ipe the past few years for various outdoor projects and I feel like about 25% is beautifiul as you describe, an addditional 50% “nice” and usable and 25% is best sight-unseen. My last few projects I saved up and bought all ...

Re: Bolero Build

Hi all. Life gets in the way of computer builds as well unfortunately. I’ve refaired and remodeled the frames and longitudinals since my last post and am currently working on sheathing and deck framing but figured I’d go ahead and post an update. Unlike others, I was NOT able to secure permission to...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

This is such a beautiful design, I really appreciate the effort you are making to document your build so well. It is super helpful and these threads make a build so much more approachable for us new guys. Much appreciated.

Re: Bolero Build

@NAMEngJS (that's a mouthfull :wink: ) Hey, I recognize Rhino! I completely agree that the way the first model, working frame out is a little backwards from a designer's/naval architect's perspective but that is how I had to at least begin since the only hard dimensions I have was the full scale tem...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Yea, its cool how it disapears like that and looks great when done well (like this). It terrifies me though more than any other part of this process.

Re: Bolero Build

Thanks for the advise Denon. It is very much appreciated and I totally hear you. As for the frames, I’ll most likely use white oak as that is readily available locally and I have a Woodmizer saw mill so I can mill plenty of quartersawn white oak at the 5/4 dimension specified for the Bolero very ine...

Those little touches have such a huge impact. This thing is going to look totally bada$$ when you are done! Can’t wait to see it refinished.

Re: Bolero Build

Tom, yea, I've checked everything. Even a different snap point on the frame would only move it fore or aft 1" (these are 5/4 frames), not up and down and side to side so it isn't that I don't believe. I'm 99% sure its a reproduction error at this point. Peter, I agree and it isn't really that unexpe...

Re: Bolero Build

Thanks Denon. I'm watching your build closely as well since there are many similarities between these boats that differ from many of the other builds on the forums. I really like what you've done with it and I'm taking some inspiration from your work! As for the sheer fairing issue, I basically brou...

Re: Bolero Build

Ha, it is definitely one of those "gallons per mile" sort of toys. I have to admit I've already started browsing around for engines even though that is so far in the future I'll probably be deciding between battery types rather than gas vs diesel!
