Re: Barrelback 20'

Mr. Rich, Thank you so much for your idea, I put it into action this weekend. The only thing I haven't done yet is make the cut to free the section. I think this is going to work very well and also keep the look of the original hatch while still giving strength to the frames. I used oak for the conn...

Re: Barrelback 20'

That's a good idea!!! I like it. I think I would still have to trim the bottom of the frame sections that would be removable. This option would also keep the original hatch design. I still haven't made any cuts as of yet..... That is pretty neat how you drew that in!!! Thanks so much for the suggest...

Re: Barrelback 20'

That is a good idea.... I am trying to wrap my head around how I would do that? First thought would be to box the section and bolt to adjoining members.... Any ideas or pictures of examples?

I see more thinkin today :)

Re: Barrelback 20'

One thing I might have done different is not build out all the deck framing around where the engine will be placed. Making it easier to raise and lower the engine and also giving you a visual of how the engine fits, as it is hard to get all the measurements just right going off of manufacturer dimen...

Re: Barrelback 20'

Hello all, back to some slow progress on the boat. As with anything, work and life seems to get in the way sometimes. I finally got some time to do the first test fit of the engine. It almost is there, but I wanted to see if you all had some suggestions as well. I need to trim the aft frame to allow...

Re: Barrelback

I am building one. There is not a frame between the seats, so you can choose to put in the separation or make it one big cockpit. I choose the beam, but would be very roomy without.

Re: Barrelback 20'

That is a nice helper you have there!!!... Hard to find good help!! It is a very nice engine. I am trying to figure out the motor mounts. The engine is going to sit at a 13 deg angle. The mounts have some travel, but I think you would position it in almost the right position and then fine tune. Did ...
