Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Steve!
Makes me feel good if I can help a fellow boat builder. For me, this forum has been a tremendous help along the way.

Re: Hello from California!

Hi Mark,
Take a look at the Mark 58 under the for sale heading on this forum. Might be something to consider.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Carl,
It was a real struggle. Too many angles that had to all work together and still line up.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Hi Mick,
Re: the curve of the center piece. I copied the frame closest to the dash using the template for that frame. If I remember correctly, I had to extend the template at the ends a small amount to reach the coverboards. I played around with mdf templates until I got it to fit.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I am using a lift ring instead of a bow eye to attach my winch strap to. It does mean that you will have to elevate the winch on your trailer to line up with the lift ring. Check out page #15 of my build and you can will see what I am talking about.
The link to my build is below.

Welcome Mark!
It says you live in Orangevale, just down the road from Citrus Heights where I live.
You are welcome to stop by and look at my build, and discuss boat building anytime. Send me a p.m. for contact information.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Rich!
Those look like the ones I have. At the suggestion of my brother, I am going to lube them up with soap and give it another shot this weekend.
I think it will work with the soap.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Part of this weekend was spent positioning my windshield. The center piece is in place, but I am figuring out where the outer brackets will be mounted. Want to make sure before I drill the screw holes. I'm not real pleased with the rubber inserts that fit into the slots in the brackets. It seems lik...

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Here's a couple of examples of how chris craft covered the top of the cutwater with a fairleader. Depending on the year of the boat, they used one of the two examples below. The main thing is they have a lip on the front that covers the top of the cutwater. The rub rails but against the cutwater. I ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hi Matt,
See the gouge in the planking below the coverboard in the pic below ? That's what can happen if you aren't careful with an electric planer. After that I stuck with a belt sander.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Jim!
Motor is not in yet. It's sitting on a pallet waiting to be put in. Plumbing, exhaust, fuel, and electrical are in and ready. All I will have to do is drop the motor in and get a propshaft. Thinking the launch will be in June. (of this year :lol: )

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I agree with Locutus. I had the same problem with spraying varnish. Sand the orange peel until it is smooth. I feel that it is easier to see your progress using a random orbital sander. After you get it smooth, be sure that you put on a "wet coat" thinning the paint 50% with Naptha. Look down the si...
