Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl,
I received my weekly web watch from ACBS this morning that had a picture of a boat that looks to me like the vera cruise. Thought of your build.
See Attached.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks guys! Matt, the design is a copy of an original boat. A pic of it is on page 7 of one of my earlier posts. The stain will be the same as shown in the picture except my boat will have the dark walnut stain continuing on to the king plank that is on the hatch covers. (I have seen some boats wit...

fume ventalation system design question

Here's my question. On my barrelback I will have two intake scoops forward of the engine, and two rear facing exit scoops after the engine. Do I connect hose from both the intake scoops taking the fresh air down to the low point of the bilge, leaving the hose open where it rests on the bilge? For th...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

The weekend progress: I really enjoyed this part of the build. Starting to look like the real thing. Last weekend I finished the deck planking on the rear of the boat, and on the deck beams between the seating areas. Started planking the bow of the boat ( 18 planks to go, they are skinny planks). Pl...

Bob,
I tried to stain the okoume that I used on the frame gussets and it looked like hell. I would suggest the veneer.

Carl,
Instead of naming it "electrical panel", you could name it "Old Sparky" :lol:
Your setup looks great!

Re: modified malahini

Hi Bryan, I would wait also. I also use the silver tip epoxy myself. Even in warm weather it usually takes overnight to cure using the slow hardner. I have worried in the past, but it always cures. Cold weather really slows things down. I have been putting the epoxy containers in warm water in my ut...

Re: Ladder
My Dad had a ski boat in the 60's that had a boat ladder that we stowed in the boat and brought out when some one needed to get back into the boat.
It worked great. The hooks and bottoms supports folded in for easy storage. This is what I will use for my barrelback.
See picture.

Wow! That is one fine looking boat! Reminds me of some of the pics I took at Lake Tahoe Boat Show.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Jim. We are far away from the fires so we, and my wood boat are safe for now. Today's Outing: Just got back from my hardwood supplier, to have some mill work done (didn't have the capacity for such a large board to do it myself). They took a 4/4 sapele board 14 inches wide and 11 feet long an...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

The weekend progress: I glued down all of the subdeck and flush trimmed it last weekend. I then milled the king planks, getting ready to install them next weekend. Will install them first and then work my way out on the narrower planks. I need to get two pieces that are to be 12 1/4" x 1/8"...

Re: Sydney Barrelback 20'

Here's a pic I had from a Tahoe boat show that you might want to use for reference. The pic shows how the cutwater and rub rails blend into the nose.

Re: Sydney Barrelback 20'

Hi Stephen I downloaded The complete Wooden Runabout Restoration Guide by Dan Danenberg from Kindle. Lots of good information in that book. If you go to location 3176 in the book there is an example of the nose you are talking about, and how it was constructed. Looks like one big hunk of shaped wood...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Here's the weekend progress. Finished the subdeck for the hatch covers. Encapsulated the undersides of the subdeck, and the deck structure so I can glue down next weekend. Spent a lot of time figuring out how wide my deck planks would be. Everything was determined by my classic gas filler trim ring....
