Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Hi Bob, I think I got mine from wholesale marine.com . Just checked, their 1 1/2" filter is 234.43. I got some of the harder to find fittings from downwind marine. They probably have what you are looking for. If I remember correctly my system is 1 1/2" throughout. Will check my invoices tonight when...

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Hi Bob, I have the same fancy filter. It comes with a bronze piece that the filter hangs on. I attached that bronze piece to a wood bracket that is attached to the motor stringer. Downwind Marine out of San Diego (you can find them online) has a good selection of bronze fittings for the hose connect...

Re: A couple new builder questions

I made my templates out of 1/2" mdf. It's easy to shape to the marking line with a pattern makers rasp and sand paper. The 1/2" mdf gives plenty of surface for the flush trim router bit to "ride on".

Re: Choice of wood filler color on okoume under west system epoxy

I found famowood on amazon in natural, oak/teak, and maple.
At classic boat connection they sell mahogany and ash. David at classic boat connection might be able to steer you in the right direction.

Re: Oil Filter Relocation

I'm at work so I can't get pictures now. Thanks for the picture Tom. Mine is similar. What Ken says makes sense. It is probably already relocated. Once I relocate the relocate , I will connect with braided stainless hose like they use on oil cooler units. It appears that they used metal tubing on my...

Re: Oil Filter Relocation

Thanks!
I'll check that out. It's a new mercruiser (chevy) so that's what they probably did.

Oil Filter Relocation

I finally got my engine into my barrelback. Turns out that the oil filter on my mercruiser 4.3L is on the top of the engine right under a deck beam.
Anyone have any recommendations as to oil filter relocation kits, and where to get one?

Thanks,
Jim

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hi Matt, I would want to keep everything balanced, and mount the tank in the center of the boat. That tank full is almost 200 lbs. that is a lot of weight on one side of the boat. My tank is mounted in the center of the boat, and I will have to remove my tank if I have to get access to the rudder, b...

Tom,
It's really looking great. I like all of your custom modifications, especially the stern treatment.

Here's a spindle sander from HFT. I have a similar model from them and it works great. They are about $150, but you can probably get one cheaper with their sale/coupon deals.

Re: BARRELBACK BUILD FROM TOLEDO

Hi Shawn, Welcome! from another barrelback builder. You will want to go with the silicon bronze screws from Glen-L. They have a nice kit of all of the screws and ring nails that you will need for the barrelback. I substituted additional screws for the ring nails because I wanted the option of removi...

Re: Choice of (2) band saws, help...

Hi Garry, One thing to consider is whether you will be re-sawing boards for veneer etc. Generally a standard 14" band saw can take a board up to approx 6" wide when it is standing on edge. If you want to go higher you can get a "riser block" and increase the cutting capacity to 12". The motor on a 1...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Hi Lee
Nice work! That's a neat jig you made. If I ever have to cut a scarf joint again I'm going to use a jig like yours instead the router method that I used.

Re: MaideN Montana

Hi Trent, I really want to stay away from putting 20 screws on the perimeter of the cutwater into my bow but maybe that is inevitable? Every cutwater I have seen is attached to the boat with screws. They are normally attached with short #6 stainless screws. If you want to go with the classic look, g...
