Re: Barrel Back Build

Question about Sheer installation. Looking at plans, I see not just two Lams in the forward part of boat, but I think I see 4 boards joined 2x2 at the notch. Meaning that the notch on frames 6 & 7 (Forward two frames on Barrelback) appear to have two sets of double lams stacked on top of each other....

Re: Barrelback 20'

I'm at the very same step in my build and would really like to hear from the seasoned boatbuilders on this problem.

Re: Barrel Back Build

Chine is installed. Went pretty well for a neophyte boatbuilder. The jig Roberta recommended was a life saver! Still had a couple small gaps on a couple frames forward, but I think it should be ok. God Bless epoxy. So what next? Shear or Battens? http://i237.photobucket.com/albums/ff55/superglide56/...

Re: Barrel Back Build

Question about fairing the keel. Is there any reason why I should not fair the keel (Not Stem) before installing chine and battens first? Seems to me that reaching the keel is a big reach if chine and battens are in place first. Without chine and battens I can stand a bit closer to the keel and fair...

Re: Barrelback 20'

Looking good Will!!

I just cut the notches for my Chine, and it really kicked my butt. Roberta and Bill posted techniques on a couple threads that helped me, but still had a few issues that more chine layers and epoxy can fix!!

Re: Epoxy Clean Up

I'm always on the look out for cheap disposable small bowls. I hit the Dollar Stores just after a holiday (Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc) and buy the small paper or plastic bowls. Great for mixing epoxy. Just toss when done. I can get couple to three uses out of chip brushes using Denatured Alcohol. ...

Re: Barrel Back Build

Thanks Bill.

There is more to just notching the frames than meets the eye. Notched the other side, and while not as bad, I still will have some gaps between chine and frame.

Re: Barrel Back Build

Crap!! Over cut the chine notch. I plan to re-install cut off piece with epoxy and cut again. Is that a correct fix?

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

You posted this a couple post's ago. The simple guage Glen L uses to find the proper set back of the chine is easy to make and use. This ensures that you will fair the stem into the chine properly. Can you elaborate or point me in the right direction to see this gauge? As soon as Chine scarf joints ...
