Re: Circular Saw

I like my magnesium makita saw. I bought it because it makes accurate plunge cuts. It will pivot on the base without moving around. I use diablo thin kerf blades. The trick is to keep them clean with a bit cleaner.

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

In answer to your question, what color, Original barrelback dashboards were walnut to match the coverboards.
Below are some pics of classic boats from Lake Tahoe Concours de Elegance Boat Show.

Re: Deck planking and gap

Classic boats had 1/8 caulk lines. See page 12 of my build. I coated the grooves with varnish before applying the caulk. Boat life caulk was great. Link below. Scroll down on page 12.

No plans. I made it myself. If I still have it, it is yours.

Re: Barrelback in san antonio

Here are pics of the drain holes. I used a router bit normally used for carving bowls. It is 1 1/4" wide by 5/8" deep. It makes a nice smooth cut so that nothing gets stuck in the drain. Each frame gets drains so that water can flow to the rear of the boat. Note the cross drains in the transom so th...

Re: Virginia Barrel

Hi Corey, I had the same question on the transom when I started my barrelback. The answer was "just make it larger, don't worry about the angle." If I remember correctly, I cut mine 1/4" larger. Any angle is determined once you attach the battens and fair everything to the shape that the battens mak...

Re: Florida Barrelback

The casters are a good idea. I moved mine around a lot. I would roll the boat out of the garage for better access than in my garage.
The upright mahogany pieces are there. Mine extended slightly beyond the transom. The were bolted to the build form. See pic below.

Re: Florida Barrelback

Hi John, As a fellow barrelback builder, this is what I did on the transom. I installed the camber boards after the transom was in place. I wanted to make sure everything was in place and lined up properly before I attached the camber boards. I used pocket screws to hold the camber boards in place w...

Re: Help with staining sides of boat

Might have been the pre stain conditioner. I used interlux Chris craft mahogany, easy, no blotches.

Re: Engine hatch and decking

The last step was figuring out where the planking would go. Cuts with a Japanese hand saw were made only on the thin planking at the fore and aft areas of the hatches. It was easy to see where to cut, only cutting one plank board at a time.

Re: Engine hatch and decking

I was afraid of cutting out the hatches later because of the possibility of cutting in the wrong place so I did it in steps. The first step was to build the framing so that the hatches were removable with rests for them in place. The rests are needed later on the completed boat. This gave me the opp...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Hi Tom, Looking good! In answer to your questions, I took measurements from my truck and car to get angles and heights for the seat and steering wheel placement. For the throttle control, look at pictures of manufactured boats, and then pick what is comfortable to you. On the bulkhead, I put a hinge...
