Thanks for mentioning that Tom. Seems silly that I wouldn't think of that, but it is quite simple and a variation of this idea would be well suited to my boat.

Re: Aluminum Boat Cabins

These postings are such a wealth of information. Thanks again Kevin!. I've been pondering how to transition my wooden cabin with curves and I think this will help immensely. Thanks again.

Re: A Couple More Upholstery Projects

I've never cared for sewing in the past, but I am excited to get to this stage of the build. For two reasons. First, it signals that I am finally getting close to being done. And secondly, after watching most of the SailRite videos, I feel that I can do this and look forward to creating my own versi...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Bill is correct about the toilet, it will be simply emptied at the marina or at home. I am not sure yet about a sink. I have been trying to keep systems simple in the boat and would rather avoid any type of holding system for gray water. I am planning on a small mini bar (mostly to hold ice and a fe...

Re: Securing Gas Tank

I don't have access to the link right now, but David Pascoe has a series of articles concerning proper fuel tank installations. It's more geared towards permanent mount but it might be worth reading. The gist of the material that I have read is regarding aluminum tank installation since this is what...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well hopefully that will be the end of the toilet jokes! :oops: Tim, I will have a vent stack with exhaust fan. what is not really apparent yet is that the head box will also contain a small storage area as well as a small covered storage for saw dust, peat moss,or whatever is needed for that aspect...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

My wife and I attended the 35th annual Hill Country Boat show in Horseshoe Bay, TX this past weekend and took the Monaco for its first boat show. There were about 30 boats there, including a few fiberglass ones. It is an ACBS event, but it was not officially judged. The members present were asked t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Ha Ha Tracy, good catch. It wasn't even intentional on my part! :oops: Today I am working more on the head box, more specifically, fitting the floor that sets under it. So far today, I've managed to recover from 5 screw ups. A couple more will be repaired later when I fiberglass the floor piece. One...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I figured you had a way to keep the Black Ghost Ship "Poo" from setting sail. A cleat attached to the underside of the narrow strips and extending a little inboard might be all you need to support the center panel. Anxious to see what you come up with... Tom That's what I was thinking as ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the feedback Tom, Tim, Matt, and Jim! Before I answer, The ply that is in there now is not the final panel, simply a temporary piece until I can make the real thing. It is crap plywood and saves me from breaking my neck when stepping over the frames !! I don’t understand completely, I don...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Matt, I can fully appreciate what you are going through. I had to do this last summer when it was blazing and it was all I could do to make myself do it. It's fun to see the picture you posted. It looks just like mine. I hope you can get the boat in the water by next summer. You and Bob in Californi...
