Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Okay, I've recovered from the last round of toilet jokes! :D :D Time for another update. Bracing myself for the next round! I have a need for a recessed toilet paper dispenser so that it fits under the head box cover. Couldn't find anything I liked, so I made my own. I've also got the ventilation fa...

Cool beans Neel,

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

This is looking really good. I am getting ready to apply more bilge paint myself. Give it plenty of time to dry. I tried some sanding and touch up about 6 months ago a day and a half after painting and it was a bit soft still. Not a mixing problem as this was one part paint, but it takes a bit of ti...

Re: Glen-L 17 overnighter sloop build

Nice work. I have a bright finished transom on my boat as well. Just looks right on these boats, even when the rest of the boat is painted.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Looking good Matt. Moving in the direction of functionality of detail I think is the right choice especially if the build starts to drag on. Unfortunately, not all detail can be left until later, but I too am trying to go this approach. It will be cool to see photos (or video) of yours and Bob's Ger...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Very nice Robert. Very nice indeed. I know that you have been working on this for quite some time. The effort you've put into this really shows. And I understand about the light difference in side to side dimensions. I found this on my boat as well and have been somewhat concerned. Reading how Chris...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

Hey Skip, I was wondering when this might occur. I know you mentioned it to me earlier. Regardless of how this goes, I know you enjoyed the build. I personally was inspired by the quality of your work. And I am very grateful for the time we spent on the hatch for my boat as well as grateful I was ab...

Re: New member Building Barrelback-19 Louisville Kentucky

Welcome aboard Jim,

I'm a bit late to the welcoming committee but I don't seem to get on line as often as I used to. You'll find building this boat one of the most satisfying endeavors you've ever done. Good luck. Looking forward to seeing progress photos.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looking good Carl! It seems like this stage of the build takes forever- JT Ain't that the truth!! :D :D So it's time for another chapter of "As The Head Box Turns". Cold weather is limiting my work days to just a couple of times a week. We are moving into a warmer period. Hopefully it wil...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Been cold here for several days now so haven't gotten any more work done since Sunday. I laid down a bunch of epoxy encapsulation coats then on different parts, but waiting for warmer temps and the time (mostly the time) to move on from there. Not much in the way of pictures but here's what I have. ...

Re: Overniter in SC: Flipped 5-27-17

I can't say for sure what size motor you might use, but my 21 foot Vera Cruise is rated for a max of 125 HP. I was planning something in the 90 to 115 hp range. I also beefed up my transom and when I get to it, the motorwell will be strong as well. Boat's looking real good. :D
