Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Here's some pics that might help. I used the setup level line and it came out about the same as the pictures. Check out where it is in relation to the chine.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

The weekend progress: Picked up my custom built trailer on Friday, it was a 4 hr round trip drive. Nobody builds trailers in Sacramento anymore. It has torsion axles instead of leaf springs. disc brakes, and adjustable bunks. Next I buffed out the entire boat. What a job! It was the grand finale of ...

Re: Varnishing Tips

Did you guys use a random orbital sander for the fine sanding or by hand in line with the grain? I just finished polishing my varnish this week end. Whew! I sanded the entire boat with a random orbital sander with dust collection. These are the grits I used 400 600 800 1000 1200 1500 2000. The 400 ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Take a look from my build link below. the cockpit is all there but in little sections it's been pulled out of the boat waiting to be put back in for final Assembly but at least you can get the idea what I did.

Re: veneer reveals hull flat spot

Here are my thoughts: First, will it be really noticeable? But if you are like me, it will drive you nuts if you don't fix it. If you decide to fix, I would remove a section of the final veneer planking, and then fill in the underlayers with quick fair. Sand until you get rid of the flat spot, and t...

Re: gorilla glue

When I first started my build, I had very little experience with epoxy. I was only familiar with Titebond 1 part glue and didn't like the idea of mixing up 2 part glue with a cure time. I got some poxy-grip epoxy from Glen-L. It is now my preferred glue. Why worry about some other glue, when epoxy i...

Re: Hello from Bolton, UK

Welcome!
A couple of hand tools I would recommend is a block plane, and a japanese saw. The saw is the best thing I have found for cutting notches, and trimming. (pic below)

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Here's what happened over the weekend. Got my cutwater and transom bands from Cutwaters by Mike. He did a perfect job, and they were a perfect fit. He said I should put beeswax between them and the varnish so I did. I put the rub rails on the spray rails. If you look carefully you can see the black ...

Re: 3M 5200

What Peter said is correct. That's why restorations must have 5200 bottoms. Epoxy is the best way to go on a new boat.

Re: Varnishing Tips

Consider yourself a varnish master. You will be ready when you vanish the rest of the boat.
Glad it worked out for you.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Looking good Matt!
I found another picture of the plank seams on an original boat that shows better than the pictures I posted earlier.
