Re: Things to Do With 15 Minutes

Yesterday, spent 20 minutes thinking through and measuring sizes for the head box Today, 10 minutes measuring plywood and determining if I have enough 12mm left to make the head box floor and a second partition. Tomorrow, who knows, but at the very least I'll make it to Wally World to pick up a few ...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

And the most important thing is try and do something everyday if possible, even if only for 15 minutes. For example, yesterday was yard work day and garbage day, in addition to making dinner. All of this after working all day. But I spent 15 minutes sanding some parts for the seat boxes on my boat. ...

Re: Restoring Glory Days a 23' Belle Isle

Looking fresh Billy. It appears you are doing a great job. However, all this sanding makes me wonder if I really want any exposed wood!! :D :D

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I’m not known for my end of day clean up skills. Throw it all on the boat and I know where it is. I can’t find a dang thing if I hide it in drawers and cabinets. Occasionally the clutter slows down production so I throw out all the scape wood thats hard to part with. Matt B Sounds like me, Every fe...

I think what happens is that we decide to build these beauties, it takes a bit longer than we thought, and we don't want to give up.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, https://www.wholesalemarine.com/ is good if they have what you need. My order arrived the next day (I'm only a couple of hundred miles from them) and although there was a problem with the order someone answered the phone and it was resolved then and there. Yes, I've dealt with them before. An...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well the flip up seat box extensions have been completed (assembly wise anyway) and sanded and stained. Unfortunately the hinges I ordered from marinepartsdepot.com did not arrive. I received someone else's order!! Tried contacting them but no go. Internet says this place is a terrible place to do b...

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

This has been one of my biggest worries as I get closer to retirement, being able to store the boat indoors. Sorry to hear about the troubles Bill. I know that is a real pain in the butt when you have to go back and redo something.

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

I agree on the painting as well, leave the sides until after you get the upper section done. Believe me, there is going to be some time before you finish the topsides. Love the photos. Very cool that your grandfather built one. What you need to do is do some modern poses similar when you get your Se...

I want to make sure that everything fits together before committing to anything permanent.So I'm starting to work on the cabin sides now. Eventually, I am going to shake the box and...

Re: New member from oregon

Well sorry to hear about the prop damage. Fortunately it didn't leave you stranded and it's a lesson learned for next time. I guess like cars and airplanes, we should probably "pre-flight" our vehicles!!

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I think my biggest concern with the "hard" seam fill options is that they do not give as the deck expands from heat. I don't have any personal experience with this as I have never owned a boat. But one that sets in the sun is going to get hot and the wood is going to expand. My personal fe...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the informative posts Jim, Tom, Bill, and Ken. After reading these and doing some additional studying, I came to the same conclusion as Jim and ken mentioned. The ground symbol is indeed a way to indicate that all items return to this point. I've modified my version of the circuit to inco...
