Re: Layout Table

I'm going to play devil's advocate here. I agree that having a nice work surface is ideal however, if you consider that most of the work you'll be doing on the boat will be in place on the boat (except for assembling the frames - more on that in a moment), then a large work table will get less use t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I guess I've been absent longer than I thought. Thanks for the suggestion Jim. I have something like those in mind already. As for the boat, well last week I continued doing some bits on the interior. It was very hot and then it rained and other things in my life came up. But I continue to try and g...

Re: Turning a Dream into Reality - Steel Ambition

Quite a project Terry. There are also quite a few builders here who have embarked on these lengthy projects as well as some out there who are not on the forum. I personally believe that building a boat is an extremely satisfying project. The sailboat pics in website you linked to show a piece of tha...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Looking good Denon. Here's a few points for what its worth. My experience with stain and epoxy is that it is absolutely necessary to let it dry thoroughly before any epoxy application. I let mine dry for a week and then wipe it down to get any remaining residue off. However, staining, while it looks...

Re: Cutwater tip.

Nice tip Jim. I think I will be considering this whenever I get around to mounting my deck hardware although I've also heard that butyl tape is the way to go. I'm still going back and forth on the cutwater.

Sorry to hear about these troubles Bill. I know it has to be disheartening. Thankfully you found a sheltered area to work on it, but I think you will need some good knee pads! :D :D

The lines of your Palm Beach are really becoming evident now. That is going to be one stout boat. Looking really great Neel.

Welcome to the forum John. It's always nice to have someone with your experience be willing to share with the rest of us. Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Crackerbox, should you decide to go that route.

Re: Klondike Build

Looks wonderful Steve. I've said it before but its worth saying again, you have incredible patience and fortitude. I applaud your persistence is sticking with such a massive project. Such a cool project and I know that once you get it in the water, it's going to be almost anti-climatic. But well des...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim, Jim, and Bill. Bill, thanks for the offer. I have what I need right now, but I will definitely keep it in mind. Although today started off as a scorcher, the clouds came in and dumped a load of rain. I got tired of working in the direct sunlight in the mornings and set up a canopy I had....

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Looking cool Matt. That disappearing act worked well enough or me to glass my mahogany veneered transom without any bad results. I did use a slightly lighter weight cloth than on the bottom,
