Re: Question on limbers

OK, Today , I put all the limbers in the boat. It went surprisingly well, thanks to everyone who commented. I did have to buy a better router, but the box cutter bit did the job well. I may enlarge the limbers in some areas. I also did the battens. I'll now seal these areas with epoxy and I'm almost...

Re: Question on limbers

Bruce: Please tell me the "Wrong" location so I can not do that myself! Did you apply a strip to the back side of the batten to strenghten it? Is that necessary? What size and depth did you cut your battens? Different boats but 1/3 of the way through? 1/2 way through? Thanks again, I'm almost ready ...

Question on limbers

Ok, I understand most people put limbers in the frames, but should I also do the battens?

How do most people do this?

thanks

Question on planking

OK, I'm almost ready to start planking my barrelback. Where should I start? I was thinking of starting on the bottom stern end first. Its pretty flat and seems to be the easyest to do. Also, should I do one layer on the bottom, then the sides or should I do all the layers of the bottom and move to t...

Barrelback progress

Well, I reached a milestone today, finished installing all the battens. It went pretty well. I have some areas where I want to glue in extra material, and finish the transom, but after that, its sanding time. It looks like a boat! I have a power planer, belt sander and inline pneumatic sander. Once ...

Making progress on the barrelback

OK, this shows the chine and shear installed but currently I have all the battens on the sides done also. Now I'm starting on the bottom battens. I'm starting to think about planking, and I have a question. Do most people fasten the first layer of planking and then glue to it, or, do they glueup all...

Re: Barrelback Keel

OK, set the keel today, Went together fine, the 3" screws were not such a problem as I thought. Took my time and pre drilled everything, made lots of alignment marks.
Onto the chine logs, sheers and battens!

Re: Barrelback Keel

Yes, your right on that one, I was thinking of attaching the first layer to the frame, then glueing the second ontop and fastening the two layers from the inside down the center
as called for on the fastening schedule. This would allow the keel to be tapered without the fasteners being exposed.

Barrelback Keel

I'm getting ready to attach the keel in my barrelback and I'm wondering how people have installed the fasteners. Schedule calls for 2 #14 3" screws per junction which seems quite large
for the 3/4" frame. Any suggestions on drilling a 3" deep hole in 3/4" material?

Re: New here a quick question on frame fastening schedule

I'm located in Renton, WA, on Lake Washington. Thanks for the tips, I havent fasten the top of the frame yet, so I'll take your recommendations. For the gussets, I used ring shank nails as called out, but I think I'll use screws for the top member, but I really like the idea of not glueing the joint...

Hi, I'm new here I'm building a Barrelback 19 and am in the process of assembling the first frame. I'm about to fasten the top frame member to the sides and its unclear as to what the fastener should be. The gussets use 1 1/4 ring shank nails but the topmember/side schedule is not called out. Should...
