Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Bob! If you do the bungs, here's something that I came up with for cutting them. Rather that breaking them out with a chisel one at a time, I cut as many as I can on the drill press using a scrap board, then I slice off the back of the piece of wood with the bandsaw, and the bungs just fall o...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

The weekend progress: It was bung weekend. I drilled about a million holes for the bungs that I will install. Guess I will be needing to cut some more bungs. I copied the patterns of the bung placement from original boats. Drilled the holes for the vent placements and positioned the deck hardware. I...

Re: Gear ratio....i'm so lost

Hi Joe, This is what I remember when I had my runabout with an i/o. I had a prop with a 21 pitch which meant that for each revolution it should advance the boat 21" in the water. I also had a prop with a 19 pitch which meant that for each revolution, it should advance the boat 19" in the w...

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Since you all are discussing airplanes, before the boat, I built every 1/72 jet fighter, attack, bomber plane made. Really got into the camo using an airbrush. Funny how we all have similar interests. Below is a picture of an airplane my brother built from a kit. When discussing the boat build with ...

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Hi Roberta,
Coming along nicely. My question for you is are you going to lay out a bunch of model car tires alongside of the boat when you flip it over? :lol:

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Wow Carl,
What a neat idea! Didn't catch it at first glance, but you will be doin' some marquetry. I did a little of that myself.
Being the oakie that I am, I would have been happy with a crescent moon cut out of the wood. :lol:

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Bill,
You made me laugh. :lol:
Actually I have an excuse. :roll: Before I start sanding, I need to finish up the top of the transom , cut holes for the vents, put a bunch of bungs in the decks.
Thanks for the encouragement!

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl,
I just ran across a picture from a Lake Tahoe boat show I attended. Thought you might like the roof line of the boat in the picture. The boat is called "Thunderchick" a smaller version of the famous "Thunderbird" of lake tahoe.

Re: New Glen-L 14 Build

Hi AJ, As Tom said, invest in some tapered contersink bits. I always drive a fine thread drywall screw down the hole first. I have a toilet wax ring that I stick a bunch of screws into so they are ready to go. Set your torque low on your drill, apply plenty of pressure on the screw and don't drive t...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Thanks Will!
The weekend progress:
Last weekend I finished the planking on the bow of the boat. I was worried that the outward planks on the bow would end as a narrow piece, or not the same, but it came out just fine.

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Hi Roberta,
Great idea building a scale model of the torpedo. I built a model of the barrelback boat before I started my build. The trailer is from a glen-l trailer plan scaled to 1/24. Pic attached.

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...
