Re: Sea Knight Center of Bouyancy?

Hello Carl, You had a Manual? all I received was some stapled together copies of instructions. It was some time ago so I do not remember where I had seen the info but I think for my craft if was forward to frame 3 a little bit maybe a foot or two. I have looked through I think most of the info I ha...

Re: Sea Knight Center of Bouyancy?

Not sure of the Sea Knight, but my instruction manual has the location of the CB on the Vera Cruise. You might try looking there. I didn't see anything about it in the plans either.

Re: Bimini Top on Zip

I've been scouring the Internet looking for cabin cruisers with Bimini tops so I can get some idea what mine will eventually need to look like. One thing I am thinking of adding to mine are water misters. It get's very hot here in the Austin area and misters will do wonders to keep the immediate are...

Re: Barrel Back Build

Well, that's how the drawings look. Am I mistaken? Hi John, I'm no familiar with your boat's design so I can't answer your question directly, but I know that I am finding all sorts of hidden gems of knowledge in my own plans. Things that are not immediately apparent until I spend a bunch of time lo...

Re: Zipology

Love the retro look of your trailer. The boat is looking great as well. I bet you can't wait to get her out on the lake.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl from what I see from your photos your work in first class. I don't have the patience to do such nice work. Your Boat should be a masterpiece when completed. Thanks again for the comments on my Baby Vera Cruise. Craig "Thanks Craig, I won't say first class, but I am trying to make her as n...

Building The Vera Cruise

Last weekend I completed the dressing out of the gussets on frame 5 and decided that I wanted to add some reinforcement to the stem / frame junction so I spent some time creating and installing an additional floor timber on that frame. I've now begun encapsulating that frame. That will take several ...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Congratulations Craig, Getting to the point of flipping the hull is a cool milestone to reach. When you get to turn the boat over and see what it actually looks like as a boat, it has to be very satisfying. I look forward to seeing more progress on your boat. The Sea Knight is very similar to the Ve...

Re: Confused

It looks like you cut too much off of the sheer. Looking at the cross section in the print and comparing it to the photo immediately above it (in the forum posting) you can see that the sheer is angled downward whereas it should be cut straight across. I marked up the images (but you have to open th...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl if you build the rest off the boat to that standard it is going to be a real show piece, I think that I am getting rougher as I go.. Old Aussie Peter.............. Thanks Peter, I appreciate that. Adding the inlay is one of those nice little touches that we as builders get to do. That same fea...

Re: wood-like cutwater

I'd like to see what you come up with for this.For the appearance plan on my boat, I don't know if a cutwater will look right either so having one made from wood might be an option.

Re: Tahoe 20 - New Zealand Progress

There's something very exciting about seeing a brand new engine just waiting in a crate. I can almost imagine that there will be some trepidation to unpack because it means getting deeply into installation of the engine. Looking forward to seeing this as it progresses.

Re: Ultra Pierre - BooBooToo - Launched

That had to be a cool way to celebrate! A good way to enjoy the boat before it's actually ready to use. One of the biggest challenges I have is waiting to use my boat as I build her. I'm at least a year away before I'll even have a floatable hull, but I daydream constantly about being on the lake. I...
