Chriscraft 283 Mounts

Attached pic of the bushing total of 6 required, front has 1 per mount and rear two per mount, plus pic of moto...

Chriscraft 283 Mounts

All, I will post this to the power board as well, for my key largo I picked up a chriscraft 283 which is now half way through its rebuild. Wood working has stopped for the last few months as oil and saw dust don't mix. I am trying to find new bushings for the engine mounts, has anyone on the forum g...

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.

Key Largo Build - Boise/Charleston

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.

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Thanks the varnish has been there since October so think I will have to start again, will make fairing in the decking easier. Will have to think of what to seal with before the varnish this time any suggestions welcome. Always go back to good old CPES or has anyone used an epoxy, or just varnish. As...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Ok Guys and Gals need some group therapy here. After stain I sealed before the varnish, I forgot the product think it was petit ez sealer, instead of CPES. Read that Danenburg had moved away from CPES to the product as the color is not effected as much, plus no odor which is good. The issue as I am ...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

If you ever make it to Idaho I will take you for a ride in one that seems to do ok even when its about a 100F. You look really cool but in reality are dripping as the thing is so hot. Couple of pics, the car at the Warhawk air museum here in town. We had a car show at the museum and gave a presentat...

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Thanks Andy for the visit nice to meet someone that has finished one of these projects in person. After a break since the flip I have started in earnest again, getting carlins, deck clamps hard back and next week the sheer fillers ready for the cover boards. Bill yes everything is nice and locked do...
