Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Plus two on co-pilot's seat. Not only the practicality, but symmetry. I can't recall a boat (or car, for that matter) that has a side-mounted pilot's seat and an empty corresponding co-pilot's seat (or a larger seating area such as wrap-around seat or lounge chair/couch) other than a stock car (whic...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Well, next time I'll looks around more before asking general questions. I found this article on the Glen-L site: https://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/56256/skeg-versus-fin/ Looks like my assumptions above are correct, and I'm leaning towards a fin. It seems that fins may be more adaptable - meaning that ...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Thanks, Lee - I was debating between the two - my plans say that either are optional (none are required) and the plans show specs for both the skeg and the fin. So I was wondering which was preferable. I'm assuming the skeg is easier with trailering and shallower depths, while the fin might be bette...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Thanks, Carl and Lee. Lee I re-read your Monaco build thread. You seem to be cruising along about six months ahead of me and was very helpful. My plans only call for a single-piece keel, with an option for a 1/4" ply on top. I should be able to get 10' lengths of 6/4 (rough 1-1/2, S2S 1-5/16, should...

Re: Otter's Ski Bass

Thanks, Tom - side clearance and clamping clearance are good points to consider as well. I believe my Mist Miss is 6" more in beam and 7" more in hull depth, so I'll have to be sure to have the wingspan to reach the keel.

Re: Otter's Ski Bass

Thanks, Otter. The plans on my Mist Miss call for 33", but I believe I have a bit more freeboard in this design.

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Had a question about options for my keel. I'm getting ready to purchase additional lumber for the keel and motor stringers. While I have 2x6 14' Doug Fir availability for the stringers, I'm having trouble sourcing material for my keel. The keel is supposed to be 4" wide, 1-1/4" thick, by 13'-6". The...

Re: Hello and boat selection

I agree with the Barrelback comments above. However, if your kids are interested in water sports you could go the route of a Key Largo, which is exactly the same specs as a Barrelback but with a utility layout. Similar great look but perhaps more usable space than the Barrelback or the Biscayne. Reg...

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Hey Idigplanes, welcome to the forum! I'm flattered that you'd ask me for advice, but I'm not very far along in my build. And the Riviera is a cold-molded design, while my Mist Miss, even though they're similar in length, is a plywood build. The Riviera has a curved transom, while fortunately for me...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom, Wanted to let you know that Marcia thinks the saddle-and-white combo is the way to go with your build, and I tend to agree with my better half. If it were my build, I'd go turquoise, but I'm aiming for that period-correct look of the late 50's with all the bright colors of the Eisenhower era. H...

Re: Otter's Ski Bass

Otter, looking good so far! I've got question for you on your setup approach. I'm a few stages behind you on my Mist Miss, having completed my frames but not yet gotten the stringers and the setup completed. If you don't mind me asking, what is the height of your uprights in your photos (from floor ...

Re: Coronavirus

I find that putting on my shop apron and safety glasses and heading into the workshop greatly improves my social distancing, from family, friends, and neighbors! I'll remember this when they want to go tubing a few years from now.

Stay safe, everyone!

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

It's a good point about trailering, as I won't have a home lake. I have no ideas yet on the trailer, and I had envisioned the winch being relatively high, and the line from there to the bow lifting eye to be about parallel. But it does make sense to have downward force on the bow. Here's the bow han...
