Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

It's the repetitive parts that really strain one's patience. :D :D I've found when I have tasks like this, that it helps to periodically look at other builds on You Tube or in pictures, or follow along on some other long term project or restoration. This usually gets me motivated enough to go back o...

Re: Why install the side planks first? (Squirt, etc.)

Is there a "rule of thumb" for where to make the transition? (Perhaps an achieved angle) If I recall correctly, I think what I was looking for was to minimize the amount of end grain showing on the skin as you move forward along the seam line. If you look at the first picture you can see that the f...

Re: Why install the side planks first? (Squirt, etc.)

Here's some examples. The first two phots show the side skin transition joint to the bottom skins.

I also did a similar transition joint between the two forward bottom skins as the "V" on my hull was fairly large.

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Filling the gap between the gussets with hardwood will keep junk out of the gap later and make it easier to dress them up if you want. I glued the filler to the frames separately from adding the gussets, but you could probably do them at the same time. 20130309_180407.jpg 20130309_195445.jpg 2013030...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Are the windshield frames going to accommodate inset panels similar to your side windows (which would then tilt open)? Or are they going to be stationary? Same as the side windows, hinged along the top and supported with hold open rods. Frames will sandwich the window glass and will fit inside the ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the kind comments Billy and Bryan. The pictures don't show the struggles I am going through with these. There are some issues, however, I am trying to minimize the impact of these. One thing for sure, I will be glad when I get through this part of the build. I am really wanting to get to ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Carl, I am pretty much over the cold I had. Rest of the family isn't though so I'm having to take up some of the slack still. I did get both forward window pieces milled out today. Next step will be to make the landings and frames like I did for the side windows. The three page punch list for...

Nice milestone Steve. I just decked mine about 4 months ago and it was really nice to get that done.

Nice work on the cutwater and transom bands. Those always lend a nice touch to wooden boats.

Hey Carl,

You're making great progress. And like you I have no prior boating experience, but neither did anyone else the first time they went boating!

Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Andrew, a couple of observations. First off, with plywood, you do not want to countersink the hole, only pre-drill. The screw head should capture the ply layers. For hardwood you do want to drill and countersink. AS for appearance, if they are below the sole, then you can do whatever you are comfort...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jimmy, Tony, Jim, and Neel. I'm flattered by your comments. I've never considered myself very good at woodwork, but I am somewhat detail oriented. Neel, here's a recap of how these were done. 1. Make an MDF template of both window openings. 2. Make an MDF Template of the Window Frames using t...
