Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Thanks Bill, I'm being quoted the 1:23:1 for an additional $525. I may go that option as it really makes a much easier fit without modifications to the frames and the motor is almost level with a 9 deg down.

I sure appreciate the feedback.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

with the help of so many I am now staining and about to buy a bunch of epoxy to wrap this rascal! I have an engine question. I have my full scale engine drawing and have been chatting with some others who are doing the same. But that PCM 343 engine is going to be a tight fit (touching both the keel ...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

I have a question regarding the mahogany planks on the sides. I've done the lines on the hull evenly spaced to give me about 7 planks wide. Using long tracing paper, the first plank at the shear has a curve of over 18 inches! I thought I would have to edge join some planks but not that much. Did you...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Carl, thanks for the warm Texas welcome (a bid redundant this time of year around here)! I'm just putting on the last layers on the bottom and contemplating the hardware needed to drill the shaft hole and buy the quarter sawn mahogany for the sides and an engine. Thanks for the information on neares...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

A July 4th update, I've started on the bottom with a single sheet of half inch with routed edge to allow for a stronger joints between the single sheet and 3 layers. The 4th layer will then run lengthwise and cover all previous layers. Starting to get seriously thinking of engines and drilling shaft...

Thanks again fellas, have a...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Jclark69, My estimate is based on an average of 20hrs/wk and I started in early October, 2015 and includes some time contributed by my dad. So about 8 months at 80 hrs/mo about 640 (and you could add in about 5 hrs/wk for my dad). I don't know how this compares to anyone else...maybe I'm slow! hope ...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

this is the newly installed camber boards on the transom and exhaust cutouts.

OK, looking for help on the waterline and how to determine its location. I can see it and scale the waterline off the plans, is there a better way, am I missing it on the instructions? HELP!!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

these are the battens going on and some evidence of steam bending the battens at the bow (February 2016).

Fairing was fun for awhile...getting bored but understand how important it is to get it right!
