Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Just have to figure out what I am going to do about paint. I plan on keeping the boat in the water when I finish it someday ...

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

I am making good progress on the bottom planking. I have to say working with 16’ long panels is a bit challenging.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Carl. I saw your trick with the wood washers and made up a 5 gallon pail of them before I started. Added a steel washer and wrapped them in packing tape so they wouldn’t stick. Has worked well so far.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Finally got a little warm weather and was able to glue my last side panel on. Also did a little experimenting with the West system scarffing attachment for my circular saw. Pretty happy with the results.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Thanks Lee. Thought I was ready to go for the season but Mother Nature had different plans. Expecting snow where I am in New York and unseasonably cold weather for the next two weeks.

Another Vera Cruise build
