Re: Heaters

I have a 80,000 btu convection propane heater similar to the one in the link below. It Works great. I can get my 2 car garage up to 75 degrees in about 5 minutes. But that's in California when the outside temp is 40 - 50 degrees. After I heat up the garage I turn way down to hold the temp. https://w...

Re: what tool do i need for this job?

Stems are tapered from a point in the front were the two sides meet and then taper back to the rear sides of the stem. I am assuming that your plans specify a 45 degree angle for that taper. It sounds to me that the plans want a specific angle for the sides to rest on. There are any number of tools ...

Definition of Boat Building

I came up with this saying while thinking of a small task that I completed today that came out pretty good.

"Boat building is about a lot of small successes that result in a big accomplishment"

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Not much to do this weekend with the rainy weather, so I thought I would apply my boat's name. (My wife's name, aka the commander)
Now I have now limited myself to girl friends named either Jill or Ann. :lol:

Re: Motor stringers

After the motor stringers were both glued up. I clamped them together to cut the notches for the frames. I did them both at the same time to insure that the frames would be in alignment.

Re: Motor stringers

I made my motor stringers by laminating two sapele boards together with scarf joints away from where the engine would be. I checked for straightness during the lamination process. Screws were used in the gluing process. They came out perfectly straight. (the lamination process will result in straigh...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Last weekend was spent painting my caulk lines and repainting the waterline. After many coats of varnish, the stripes and waterline took on a yellowish tint, so I painted them with Interlux white striping and boottop paint. The picture shows a before and after on the stripes so those that want to go...

Stainless Steel Screw Holder

As you know stainless steel screws don't work with magnetic screw driver tips. Its a real pain sometimes holding the screw in place in different positions. When installing my wiring connectors, I came up with something that holds the screw on my screw driver. I cut off a piece of one of the heat shr...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Hi Biss, There has been much discussion about adhesion problems with epoxy over oil based stain. People that use oil based stains put CPES epoxy on top of the stain as a sealer before continuing with the normal epoxy. I only have varnish over my stain. I have had success with interlux chris craft ma...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I wanted the classic look but the function of a cable system. I used a seastar helm mounted to a bracket that I made, with a cable running back to the teller. Easy to adjust and center the wheel with the tiller. I got a 3/4" shaft and had a taper put on it so it would connect to my steering wheel. T...

Re: Winch Recommendations

You might want to study the setup that was on the custom trailer for the runabout that I used to have. You will notice that the "stop" is lower, and the winch is in line with the bow eye. I would set my trailer down on the ramp so that the fenders were about 1" out of the water in the front, drive t...
