Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Working around chores, weather, and work. Got the lower forward motorwell bulkhead cleat installed today. Once this is cleaned up, I'll start making a template for the bulkhead. The plan is to tie the floor supports I made last week into the bulkhead (with suitable supporting structure.). I had to l...

Re: MI Malahini Build, Post Flip.

Footer, it looks really nice. I'm at this part of the build as well. I'm sure you guys will blow right past me though. It is hard to decide what to do next. Believe me, I've been doing this for over 2 years now (post flip stuff, I mean). My best friend and tool in this endeavor has been punch lists...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Yep, I am still working on the boat. The encapsulation of the floor supports and the cabinet took quite a bit of time. But now I'm moving on to other things. First up, is adding a small piece of wood as a filler at the top of the anchor well aft bulkhead. This brings the bulkhead up to match the cur...

Re: Vroom vroom is gone

Oh this is truly unfortunate. I am very sorry to hear this. This seems to be a problem with moving. A similar thing happened to us when we moved across country in 2001. Woke up to checkout the 26 foot u haul truck and found it missing. I was also parked in a hotel. The truck was found several days l...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Denzil, I appreciate the comments. I've been pretty bad about using recycled wood. I make the most out of the wood I have, but all of it is new lumber. Paying as I go gives me that option I suppose, Part of the reason of course is because I made the decision to use African Mahogany early on s...

Re: modified malahini

Biss, MattB, vupilot, PeterG and bstrong: Thanks! Now, where to start on the inside. I guess cleaning up all the epoxy stalagmites first. First off, congrats on the flip. I know how immensely satisfying that is after many years of waiting. Secondly, and this is not meant to discourage you, but clea...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Bryan.

Getting close to completing this phase of the build. Only one more coat of encapsulation needed on four of the supports and then I can start getting them ready to install. I'm really looking forward to getting these in as it will give the boat a more completed look.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Just some pictures. All I've been doing for the last several days is encapsulating!

Re: Klondike Build

She's looking really wonderful Steve. Nice job on that handrail. I've done some bending of steel tubing in my life and that is not easy to get right. Thanks for the update. I see I'm not the only one who delays making cabinet doors and drawers.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Matt and Billy, Yes, I released even before I started building that most people who purchase boats get tired of the payments. That, along with the limited amount of time many don't have to use them and I think it gets pretty easy to justify selling the boat after a few years rather than letti...

Re: Glen-L 17 overnighter sloop build

Ah this coming summer. Sure wish I could make that deadline. Just no way, too much to do. But Spring 2020 is still a possibility. We'll see!

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Continuing on the floor supports. With a total of 10 of them, progress towards completion of all is slower. The four short ones are nearly ready, but the longer ones (6) are only about 1/3 completed. Having to wait on epoxy and warmer weather slows the process down. Although it's progress, I'd like ...
