Re: Florida Barrelback

Re: Florida Barrelback

I installed all the camber pieces, cut them off inline with side of hull and then installed the filler blocks. Leave yourself plenty of room for the exhaust Cu...

Re: Barrelback in san antonio

Hi,

When I done my keel I screwed the first layer and epoxy, second layer I only epoxied on, faired the keel and then installed the screws for the second layer and counter sunk them enough to fill with thickened epoxy.

Re: BB Frame 1

I will try to put together a list over the next week of areas that require some extra thought or attention for the building of a Barrelback. There is nothing major but just a few steps that a little bit of an explanation can help out rather than sitting there trying to work it out. These boats reall...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

That was nearly a year ago now Bill and it still haunts me when I close my eyes.

It is something I check is operational every time we boat.

Re: BB Frame 1

Hi, That is correct You will need to cut at the black line you have marked, the bottom and side will sit flush and have a gusset on both sides of the corner. In regards to the top beam it will sit on the leading edge (forward facing part of the frame). If you want to check out my build in the Power ...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Steve,


You will be very happy with the gear/ throttle level you have there.
I have the same and it is so ultra smooth and great to use.

Just make sure that that neutral safety switch is working before you hit the water.

Looking good and getting excited for you!

Re: Aussie Belle

Hi Tony, I will be holding onto the sewing machine as I have a car project that I will be doing the interior. Plus some cash jobs for other people. Anyway, Yesterday I picked up my new fuel tank (my other tank cracked along one of the welds) was never very happy with the original tank as it was made...

Re: Riviera

Hi Simon,

I have built a 23ft Belle Isle, I used LVL timbers for my stringers.

I purchased from a hardware store (make sure the glue is A Bond glue)

They are nice and strong and straight.

My boat is complete and on the water.

My build can be found under Aussie Belle

Re: Engine hatch and decking

Hi Tony, I planned over the hatch and then cut out after. I did the cut out of the hatch before I did the caulking that way it was easy to see and mark where I had to cut. Mine was a very crucial cut as I don’t have hatch trimming to cover the cuts, was a scary moment with the jig saw free hand cutt...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom I messed around with angles for steering wheel and seat, heights etc for a few days until I felt what was comfortable for me(remember you will be the one doing most of the driving) I also made the seat base with some angle as well so ya bum sits back in the seat. Throttle control on mine is in a...

Re: Aussie Belle

Sorry for delayed response Tony, I think we might be missing the Bribe show this year(along with everything else)! You might get finished by the time this virus and social distancing is done with. We got a bit of a hail storm yesterday, mostly about golf ball size being the biggest, but very rare to...
