Merry Christmas Tony,

Looking good! Caulking has turned out great.

Re: Belle Isle Bow Framing

Hi there,

I have a few pics in my build pages, don’t overthink it, so long as both sides are the same and you are happy with the lines.

Re: 2020 was a boating bust

That’s a bummer, sorry to hear,

We have had a cracker year of boating and loads of fun.
And the good thing is we boated all through our winter(not that we get one)!

Better year for everyone next year hopefully.

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Hi,

I set my bootstripe with a laser along the length of the hull, the stripe will thicken and be a weird shape where it goes over the chine and under the bow.
Photos are of my Belle isle, I did my stripes a bit different
I followed the plans and it worked out spot on.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom,

To shape the foam I marked on both side of leading edge 1” in,
Cut that off with a bread knife and then used the coarse mesh style sand paper on a rubbing block to round the edges, worked well.

Re: Fuel Tank suggestions?

Hi Dave, For the mounting of my fuel tank I welded on 4 angles to the aluminium tank, drilled a hole and used a 75mm x 10mm stainless steel coach bolt straight down into the stringer. Is very solid, only issue is the bolt at the back is a little painful to get to, other than that very happy with the...

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Bob,

I agree with Bob Perkins

I would complete off the cradle, your biggest challenge will be keeping your nice shiny trailer clean.

Top deck makes an incredible mess of the shop

Just my thoughts

Looking great and can’t wait to see you on the water

Hi I really like your idea. I have never looked at wake boats until I found Pavati I am also looking at building a replica of the Pavati and was thinking about buying the Bolero plans and making the changes to have the appearance of a Pavati but with my own twist. I will be doing aluminium for the b...
