Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jimmy, Neel, and Footer Yes, the top is going to be glassed and painted white. The sides will remain natural wood (protected of course). That front window assembly was definitely a challenge when I was working on it earlier this year. I am hoping to do a simpler design for the windshield on t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Lee and NC. My building is progressing. This last weekend I got the port aft floor board split and additional supports added to the underfloor structure. Also cut down the excess material on the top edges of the front and side cabin parts. Applied some fairing compound and started sanding tha...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I got the aft wall pieces cut out and the upper trim piece made now. I'll be stepping back from that and moving on to other tasks that need to be accomp...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

No worries about the floor. Eventually there will be some sort of covering for it. I'm looking at a rug like material that feels like carpet but is made from recycled plastic. Or I may go with something else. Far too soon to know for sure, but it won't be slick! :D :D I've been working on the trim p...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

So, did you did you decide to close it in or are you just playing? No, the walls you see are the ones I elected to include in the final design. The opening in between will remain open. The wall on the starboard will eventually be the cabin side of the helm station which is nearly as big as the wall...

While one can serve as a handy footstool, don't try and substitute 5 of them for a ladder!! :? :?

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Some of the wake boats I see around here are wide enough that you could fit two of my boat on side by side, or at least it seems so.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Pretty cool Tim. The lower part of my box on the left will not be very useful because it is actually hiding the fuel tank. But the upper section has room for some drawers or something. I'll start figuring that out when I get to it. Had to do some yard work today. Not my favorite thing to do, but at ...
