Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Yep Matt, I've burned through quite a number of the 4 inch rollers.Most supplies I am using for the boat i have found relatively inexpensive sources for, but those rollers are about $1.20 each even at WalMart. I need to look around to see if I find a cheaper source. As a side note, you can get 20 of...

Re: Bob's Geronimo - launch

Outstanding Bob, glad it went well. I think you made the correct decision in not heading further out. Take the time to get used to the boat and get her dialed in. She looks wonderful setting there in the water. Congratulations. :D :D

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Thanks for the feedback Matt. It's funny, I've seen that optional diagram a hundred times now and I never made the simple connection you just mentioned! Brilliant! 390 plus 126 pounds. I'll have to do some more thinking. Fortunately that part of the boat (actually everything aft of the cabin) is sti...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

No new pics today because I am still in encapsulation mode. But getting in some time everyday again. This is one of those stages of the build where it feels like nothing is getting done, but I know it is. In the scheme of things, encapsulation coats are fairly significant steps, but man!!!! :lol: :l...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Looking good Jim. I think these fiberglass/wood hybrids look decidedly cool. A way to get something different than the normal and one which will garner lots of questions.

Looking great Steve. Are you building the interior to plan or deviating?

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Matt, quick work on the motor well. Looks good. I am anxious to put this in, if for no other reason than to feel like I am more faster progress, but getting into my boat is a challenge if there is anything blocking the back. It'll probably be one of the last things I put in before the splash, we'll ...

Re: Chugalug's BoJest

Hey Tim, you could put armor plate up front. !! :lol: :lol: Seriously, I think either safety or tempered will be fine. Unless you take it out in rough seas, I doubt you will ever get any kind of a wave over the bow strong enough to break it. A friend of mine has a 28 foot BlueJacket with tempered gl...

Re: vupilot's Zip for sale

Good luck with this Chris. I've mulled over options for how I will be using my boat (when I get it finished). The original plan was a trailer and take it to the lake whenever I want to use it. But lately, I am considering the marina approach and in fact even considering retiring in a condo near a ma...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Regarding hinges, at the risk of being off the wall (and off the mark) :shock: :shock: Would European hidden style hinges work in this application? Finding them in stainless might be a problem, but there would be nothing above deck. I have no idea if these would work or not, but they come in a fairl...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I was able to finally get to the boat today. Sure hope next week is better . I mostly did encapsulation, but had to do some final trimming on the port floor board first. It's now curing wit the initial seal coat of epoxy. Tomorrow, I will lay down a sheet of Fiberglas cloth. I trying to get the cabi...
