Re: You don't need tie down straps.

Yikes. They must have been really moving to get that kind of a launch!

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

That's really cool Jim. This is one of those things that really stands boat builders apart, the desire to do what is necessary to get the job done. Bravo.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Most of the deck is now fitted and screw holes pre-drilled. I have one small section on the starboard side that needs some minor trimming and then I will be ready to install these deck pieces. However, there are still some under deck tasks that need to be completed so installation will be delayed a ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Nice work on the dash Matt. That is a nice effect. Once the centers are cut out and the instruments are in there, it is going to be a beaut!

Re: Cleaned up my epoxy 'spills"

Yes, very true. I've managed to keep up with most of the squeeze out as I go, but there were some areas that were not done until later. In this heat, I regret that decision every time I have to clean up those hardened drips.

Re: Klondike Build

Setbacks are inevitable I think when a build takes as long as ours have. But the telling thing about this is the builder's refusal to be stopped and to keep going. You're close to the finish line Steve, I know you'll make it.

Re: Minuet room for porta potty?

Carl (mrintense) is planning something like what Bill wrote above on his Vera Cruise. Take a look at his build log or contact him to see how much room he is planning for. My setup is a composting toilet that I found online made from two plastic buckets. It's not completed yet, but the basic assembl...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Continuing to knock items off the decking punch list. I am getting close to finishing the encapsulation on the starboard side. Port side is done and skins are pre-drilled and ready to install. Need to run conduits for electrical on the starboard side as well as add blocking for the two deck seams on...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Hang in there Michael. College is very important and you will definitely benefit from it . Think of it like this. By the time you finish, you'll have a boat nearly ready to go. Even if it takes a few more years, you'll be able to enjoy it both the building and the riding. My hats off to you for doin...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Looks great Matt. If the gaps are far enough outboard, will they be covered by other pieces. 1/32nd is pretty thin and I don't think anyone will notice.

Re: New Member

That's going to be a beautiful boat. I don't think I've seen one of those built other than the photos on the Glenn L site. I'm all for cabin cruisers and the like. Go for it. I really look forward to see this one come along.
