Re: Another Vera Cruise build

I learned the plywood washer trick from someone else here years ago. They do work great, however it is important to replace them with the final screws before the epoxy sets up because they can be a bear to get out otherwise. My approach to these was to cut lots and lots of long strips of wax paper a...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Roberta, Bill, Matt, Steve, Bryan, and NC721. I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. Started prepping the roof for fiberglass yesterday. Right now I've got three different projects going at the same time and space is tight in the garage. I'd like to get the interior pieces installed a...

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

I'm sure you know this but take extra time and make sure you have everything ready before starting. I even went so far as to predrill my plywood washers and start the screws in each one so they were ready to go before I started gluing things down. If you can get some help, it makes a big difference.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jamie and Steve. Sorry for the delayed response. I've been doing lots of mundane chores on the boat, trying to get the forward cabin section to the point where I can assemble it. There's still much to do. The plan is to try and get all the messy stuff done so I don't have to vacuum out the bi...

Re: Minuet build update (pics)

If I were younger, I would build something similar when I finished my Vera Cruise. You've done some fine work there.

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Hull is getting there. I remember how exciting it was for me getting the siding and bottom plywood attached. I look forward to seeing more progress on this. And I am glad that I am no longer the only Vera Cruise builder here.

Re: Brendons Zip Build

Deckwork is coming along nicely Brendon. I know what you mean about having the boat to get through this stay at home stuff. It's actually not been too much of a burden on me.

Re: Florida Barrelback

One thing I did way back then was to spend a few hours just studying the plans and making notes. It's amazing the little tidbits of information in there as you stare at the plans. Some of it's not so obvious at first, it only comes when you realize the cause and effect of various decisions made when...

Re: Outrage progress

I'm using Total Bilge which is hard as steel once it's cured, but it does take some time to cure.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

Had to go back a ways, must have missed some of these postings. You've done some really really nice work there. Already a head turner and you've not finished. Congrats on some fine work.
