Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I'm putting my deck fills away from each other(one on each side of the boat) Both of mine will be on the same side, but I am separating them by about 6 feet . The fuel fill port will be the aft one and just aft of the side wings. Also, although it probably wouldn't be noticed, each port is identifi...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the feedback Matt and Matt. I will be through bolting the cleats and the backing will either be hardwood or plywood, although I am now leaning towards plywood which I think will be better for this application. The cleats I bought are quite nice with two holes on the ends and a third hole ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I put the fuel port on the same side that it is on my truck. In my case that is the port side. Bill Thanks Bill, that's where it will be on my boat as well, although it's more a function of where the gas tank is going to be mounted. Looking good, Carl! For cleat reinforcements, I epoxied them in pl...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Billy. I have been getting ongoing treatment, but it's a slow process. Today, didn't have much time to work on the boat, but one of the next things I want to do is determine where to place the deck fittings. For me this means, four cleats per side, two fill ports (one for water and one for fu...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

You're just so close to slapping on motor on the back of that bad boy and taking her out for a cruise. I might have to take a road trip to Austin. :D :D Well there's still quite a bit to do. For one thing, none of the interior is even installed! But it is exciting to see it coming together. You're ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Lee and Jim

Back problems are continuing to slow me down, but not stop me. I've got the port side skins cut to shape now.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I also used the router and angled jig. It works fine. Really as far as scarf joints go, it's the glue up that actually more work because you want to make sure the board is straight through the scarf joint. When I made my chines and sheers (21 plus feet long), I used cinder blocks to hold them up and...

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Nice execution of the rear seat Biss. I am trying to decide how I want to provide access to this area on my Vera Cruise as well.
