Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Neel, It's Total Boat Bilge Paint but it does take several coats to cover. It also takes several days to fully cure. Hard as a rock afterwards though. I wanted t a glossy finish in the bilge to make it easier to wipe down. Personally, if you can spray this, that would be best, although take precauti...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for posting those Bill. I'll compare them to my own plans and see what I can do. This morning I finished the bilge painting in the cabin area and continued painting the floor panels. Still need to do the edges on the panels. This is not a fun thing to do, it's how, uncomfortable, and stinks b...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the responses Bill & Neel. I am planning on looking over other boats as well as prototyping the cabin sides before I commit to the real thing. I don't want the cabin wall to incline too much but I will consider what you said Neel. If I would have thought of this when making the frames...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim. I planned on doing some research and price checking before I do anything else. On another note, I've had a successful experiment in producing a beveled panel prototype. The plan is to use a series of these on the carlings to angle the cabin walls in approximately 5 degrees. I'll attach t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the responses guys. I am still not sure where I will place the outlets, but since I am in painting the bilge mode, it can wait for a bit. I will have to make a decision fairly soon though. Since bilge paint takes so long to cure fully, I am going to be experimenting with an idea to slight...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Nice progress Matt. I think the painted plan is good too. I'm still up in the air on my deck. But I was originally going to veneer the exterior of the hull to get that woody look, but decided I was not going to have the energy to maintain it later in life. So I switched to a paint design about 4 yea...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Perhaps you can just modify the cover rather than remake. It's going to be a box regardless. Add some curved corners and or exterior trim pieces. You might be surprised. Looking great so far.

Re: UK Zip Build

I understand the space problem. I think many of us here do!! I placed mine nose in the garage so I would have better access to the transom, but it was a real bear getting the forward skins on at that time. I have approximately 1 " to spare in the back of the garage and 2 inches at the door. I a...

Re: '57 Century Redux

Well, that is definitely a project. But no harder I think than building one (at least now that you've gotten past most of the nasty demo work. She is definitely going to be a beaut if your Zip was any indication. And I perfectly understand the missing of the Zip. Although I have never owned a boat, ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I've been trying to find more information on this for the last hour. I'm already aware of the issues with corrugated hose (mine are smooth bored), and I have two 1100 GPH pumps (the biggest that will fit under the floor) up front and there will be two more near the transom. Hose size is 1 1/8" ...
