Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Finally, after 10 days of waiting to get well enough to work on the boat, I was able to get back to it. Today was so blinking hot that I couldn't stay outside for very long, but I managed to get a platform made for the cabinet to hold the fresh water and gray water tanks. It's a tight fit, bit I can...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Ha ! Very astute observation! Thanks for the concern guys. Had a bit of a flare up of pain yesterday afternoon. I guess the treatment only accelerates the passing of the stone, so some pain from the continued voyage down the "Great Circle Route" is to be expected. Bill, Thanks for the head...

Sale On Ancor Wire

I got an ad today from West Marine showing 50% off on Ancor wire today if anyone is interested. Can't vouch for their prices as compared to others. But if you need wire , it might be worth a look.

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Funny you should mention the front and back garage doors, Carl. We have the hangar door in the back and the garage doors in the front. We usually drive in the back access road and drive through our back yard entering the garage/ hangar from the runway side. Instead of taxiing a plane through the ba...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the kind words Tim, Matt, Joe, and Skip. can't wait til you're in the wiring stage.I got a 25 ft chunk coming tomorrow-126 bucks.Yikes Yeh, I truly appreciate that.

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Of course it's not all correct thinking on my part concerning the bandsaw. I too wanted one of those super nice saws as well as a nice table saw. What saved my from these purchases was the absolute lack of space in my garage. As it is, I have to move the bandsaw and table saw around just to use them...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Always refreshing to see new tips come across this forum. I've sometimes wondered about the eventual mounting of the outboard on my Vera Cruise. I've seen the transom bands mentioned by Matt (i.e. Hercdrvr) but the rubber pads are something I didn't consider. I can see that this is another area I am...

Re: Shop size

Here's a consideration. Not sure of you live in an HOA controlled neighborhood or not, but a temporary shelter attached to your garage and closed off so that it can get any heat from a heater in your garage might be an option. Admittedly this will probably only work if you live out in the rural area...

Re: Curing too fast

One thing to do as often as possible is do jobs in small batches. Leave the large jobs for cooler temps like in the morning. Or break the larger jobs down into smaller jobs if possible. For planking plywood sheets of course this is not possible and the early morning option is your only real choice. ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Got through the kidney stone ordeal. Had to have a lithotripsy procedure, but came through with flying colors. Should be able to get back on my boat by this weekend. Going to pick up my freshwater system parts tomorrow. Thanks for the kind words.

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

I have lost confidence in this machine for resawing now that I've done some research. 3/4 HP and aluminum wheels might not be up to the task. Now I want something BIGGER!!!!!!! Tom I understand the sentiment. But you should ask yourself of how much usage you will get from the the bigger saw. Not tr...
