Re: Chriscraft 283 Mounts

So have now completed manufacturing my own engine mounts - steel tube from a muffler extension, some brass bushings and a urethane kit.

Few little lessons on the way, but now have all bushings made - About $65 in total. Pic of old and new attached.

If anyone needs more details let me know.

Re: Chriscraft 283 Mounts

They are 2 1/4" outer diameter, by 1 3/8" inner and just over an inch long, with an outer steel casing, rubber interior stuck on a steel bushing. They were frozen to the mounts and I destroyed 1.5 trying to get them off to get accurate measurements. I tried a commercial company that has similar but ...

Re: Barrelback frames detailed material list

I don't have an exact material list, but I made templates on some cheap ply so I could replicate the frames so I could lay out on the stock. I am building the key largo almost the same design. Have a look at the pics, will maybe give you some ideas on quantity, also you can always take the plan into...

Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Ok fun question of the day on engine placement and proving to my wife a donor boat would save in the long run :D The donor boat prop shaft is about 15" inches too short from the Key Largo plan. I have stretched the boat from 19 to 20 so there is a little extra in there. The barrel back has the engin...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Haven't posted for a while so thought about time for an update getting ready to start working on the inside and some mechanics.

I have been busy with the parts that everyone will see.

Re: Joel Bauer’s Coronado (Laurel Lynn)

Hope not too late for pic travelling this week, here is my scarfing jig, works great if you have a look on my galley pics I also had a glue up jig, very simple to make and use.

Great pleasure to welcome Mickfly to Boise today, he was passing through town on his way to the Oregon. We have been leap frogging each other for about a year building the same design and helping each along the way. Guess I have been distracted with work and a bunch of other stuff so he felt compell...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Haven't yet I have been searching for the post that talked about the change and why. When I find I will dig deeper. For now looks like I am going down to stain + sealer. Still debating whether to sand through the stain or not will have to see what it looks like when it is stripped, need to make sure...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Thinking just the varnish, just put tape to protect the line between finish and sheer filler as I mate the two and pulled off what appears to be just varnish. Stain seems untouched. One pic below dry and one wet, no stain on wet rag

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Awesome help as always, think it is definitely petit sealer under the varnish that's the culprit. That will teach me to read too much before I do something.
