Mixing Epoxy

Here's something that worked out for me. For measuring parts of epoxy, I pour the epoxy and hardner into separate containers. Then mix them together in a larger container. I get the plastic 3oz cups from walmart that have ridges on them that I use for the same or different ratios. The cups are real ...

Re: barrel back 19 in annapolis

I used the raptor staples for the sub layers of plywood. For the final mahogany layers, I used the raptor brown brads. I set the pressure so that brads were "set" under the mahogany and then filled the holes with famowood which took the stain just fine. The raptor light brads and staples do take sta...

Re: Unconventional Barrelback 20

Hey Billy,
Thought your comment was pretty funny, but then I remembered a boat I saw at the Lake Tahoe Concours de Elegance boat show, and it's a barrelback. Pic below:

Welcome to the forum!
Lots of barrelback builders on the forum. As any question, we are all here to help.
Now I'll ask mine. What do you mean by unconventional?

Also california classic boats www.californiaclassicboats.com their brackets are plated. Classic boat connection told me that they sell the un-plated brackets so that you could grind the...

Re: Plywood

From what I have read, Luan is kind of like mahogany but not mahogany.
I would suggest Joubert Marine Okume plywood if you can get it. It's the best plywood I have ever seen. No voids and no patches. One side is as good as the other side. It's FSC certified. (whatever that means)

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

In my opinion I would straighten that dip out. How big of a dip are you talking about? I took a look at the glen l drawing on your plans, and there is no dip. I am building the barrelback (similar to your boat) and there is no dip. I think it would look odd if you could see the dip when looking at t...

Re: Heaters

I have a 80,000 btu convection propane heater similar to the one in the link below. It Works great. I can get my 2 car garage up to 75 degrees in about 5 minutes. But that's in California when the outside temp is 40 - 50 degrees. After I heat up the garage I turn way down to hold the temp. https://w...

Re: what tool do i need for this job?

Stems are tapered from a point in the front were the two sides meet and then taper back to the rear sides of the stem. I am assuming that your plans specify a 45 degree angle for that taper. It sounds to me that the plans want a specific angle for the sides to rest on. There are any number of tools ...
