Re: CNC Conversion

Hello Folks, I hope everyone continues to be well! Couple of things to mention... I wanted to buy some gauges that have a 40s-50s look to them. There are some contemporary gauges that have a vintage look to them which I thought I'd end up using. BUT Over the last couple of years in looking on line a...

Re: CNC Conversion

Hello Folks, I've finished the topside planking and have 'roughly' faired it. I've also finished putting primer on the interior of the hull. I've been been working on installing the rudder, steering box, shaft and steering wheel. I've also been working on the seat framing and surfaces. Once I had a ...

Re: Klondike Build

Hello Steve,

This is wonderful news !

Finally being on the boat in the water will have to be even more special because of the difficulties you've encountered getting it to the water !!

Perserverance !!!

Re: CNC Conversion

Hello Folks, I hope you all remain well and are trying to be safe from the virus. I've been having a wonderful time continuing on with planking the topsides. I'm a bit amazed at how banana shaped the 2 upper forward planks are... they just don't look that curvy on the boat. In my last post I indicat...

Re: CNC Conversion

Hello Folks, I hope all of you have had good health and have been staying safe from the Virus. I've continued working on the planking and it's been a slow process. The mahogany is really quite nice to work with but I've had to spend time learning how to 'spile' (is that the right term?) each plank. ...

Re: CNC Conversion

Hello, It's been a good while since I've posted an update but I'm making slow headway on this boat. My wife and I were away for the months of June and September, so that was part of the slow pace. Redoing since things and improving things takes time too. I spent a good bit of time continuing to fair...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hello Carl. In looking at your photos I'm wondering about the stress the fasteners for the seat base will put on the surface of the platform. Might an addition of a rectangular piece of solid lumber blocking 'let-in' to the platform framing help mitigate the forces your movements on the seat will ma...

Re: CNC Conversion

Gents....

Thanks very much for the encouraging words!

I'm trying to do a 'first rate' amateur job.
Some days go pretty well but on others I seem to be mostly making saw dust and firewood.

Re: CNC Conversion

Hello, I'm continuing to work on this speedster. I've spent a lot of time working on fairing the frames, keel, chine, and stringers/battens. I also 'refined' the connection of the of the keel, chine, and stringers/battens to the frames. I decided to put 2 coats of primer on the framework because the...

Re: CNC Conversion

Alan- Thanks for your posts. Just when I thought that there were enough projects to work on. :D ...Miss Behave drawings and offsets have been hanging on the shop wall for awhile. It looks like CLC did a great job cutting from the PDF file you provided? Any thoughts on what you are going to run for ...

Gauge Cluster

Hi Pat, I was admiring your Crackerbox in Manistee about a month ago. Such a sharp looking boat and such fine workmanship on it!!! I took particular notice of the GrayMarine gauge cluster in the cockpit. I'm curious where that came from... and it looks like it's been restored?? Might you share that ...
