Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, Here's a source for 12v LED's. Press fits into a 0.25" hole and has built in resistor. Should last for many years! https://www.allelectronics.com/item/led-12vr/12v-5mm-red-led-indicator-assembly/1.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjw9LPYBRDSARIsAHL7J5lLiR9rgKy_0p_HRhY6RPgerhgNDargGfF8O-Xom56sSX7wf_mhrh8aA...

Re: Klondike Build

Matt, For anyone considering the trip, there's a hotel overlooking the bay (Waterfront Hotel) on Jack London Square just a short tunnel drive under the estuary from our berth at Marina Village in Alameda. Great restaurants, Farmer's Market on weekends and direct access to the SF Bay ferry system. Le...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

In the diagram looks like switch lead "2" will have to go back to battery + to give you manual control for the pump.

I would leave wire gauge as you showed on original schematic. Issue here is voltage drop, and not ampacity.

All is looking really great Carl!

Re: Klondike Build

Bill, I understand completely. Probably better to wait anyway until we have a chance to work out any unforeseen issues & tie up the rest of the loose ends. I would be pleased to have you visit when you can... you're always welcome. We'll be berthed at Marina Village in Alameda, hopefully by the ...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Neel,

All those notched frames beautifully aligned reminds me of model building as a kid... it's a great feeling to see the form starting to take shape from flat frames spaced on stringers bent to a graceful curve.

Really looking great! :D

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl,

Your progress is looking great... I know the feeling of burning time without seeing much change. It's all good :D ... the list of things to do gets a little shorter with every step forward!

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks Carl and Billy! The interior will be very close to the plan, except for a few changes in the galley (frig in place of separate door to main cabin, sink against port wall in place of door to side deck) and helm (steps to flybridge in place of hanging locker for foul weather clothes, console fo...

Re: Klondike Build

Thanks guys. Matt, unless we're up on the flybridge I think the wheelhouse will be the best place to be while underway. The seats are raised just enough to let you see what's going by. Chug, the table will be on a telescoping pedestal so it can be dropped to seat level if needed for sleeping space. ...

Re: Klondike Build

A brief update... The helm seating area is framed in and also have started roughing in the galley cabinets. My wife has shown more interest in progress lately and has been a great help in working out details of the galley and cabin joinery. :D Helm seating frameup.jpg Galley2.jpg Regards, Steve

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Matt,

The dash and switch layout looks great! The framing in place gives a nice preview of the curve of the deck :D
