Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Starting on the motorwell now. Mainly as a change of pace from the helm which still needs some more work.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Evan, I do have a running total of parts and materials, however, I have been excessive in my use of epoxy and it also includes quite a few parts that are not going to work out.

Nick Nick, To be honest, way back then I had incorrect ideas about how big the boat was going to be. Furthermore , I was still planning on building the cabin ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I am going to start working on the motorwell / splash well now that most of the helm work is done. Of course there is more to do on the helm, but until I get the hardware, I want to continue with something else. I also need a change of pace. To get the helm out of the way, I hade to move it back int...

Re: Klondike Build

The second photo says a lot about the amount of work needed for a boat of this size. I'm glad your wife is happy to help. And soon, you'll finally be able to see how it works in the water. Exciting times ahead. :D :D

Re: This years houseboat trip

Beautiful location. I too would like to go there at some point.

Reminds me of Lake Shasta in Northern California. Giant lake with tremendous scenery.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

However, I see what you are getting at and I think that would be a good addition to make to the structure. Thanks for pointing that out. In other news, I've fitted the access panels for th...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Nick and Martin. Sorry I haven't been online recently. Still working on the helm. Also getting the floor board modifications finished up. The helm is taking far longer than I thought it would at first. But most of the parts except for three access panels (including the instrument panel) are i...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Very nice Matt. Every time I go out in the Texas heat, I swear I am going to put in a window air conditioner in my garage. Haven't done it yet because I 'd have to add electrical and a window as well. :(
