Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

... It’s really hard to dismantle these old ski boats after you take them on the water, super fun boats. So I’m taking a wrench to this one ASAP before I get any ideas of keeping it. Matt B Ha Ha, Matt, do I know that feeling. In the nearly 6 years since I started my build, especially as spring and...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Mike, it looks just fine. Believe me (and I am sure you already know this), when the average person sees your finished boat, the wows are going to come out!!

Perhaps #2 for new builds, but don't forget the fiberglass boat you completely overhauled, nearly a full build that one as well.

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Looks good Fraser. I remember doing what you said you are doing, running my hand over the hull. Did a lot of that. One thing you might want to consider is either adding another set of casters in the center of the trolley spans or if you are planning on blocking it up like I have, then add blocking u...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I'm off this week and trying to get more work done. Lots of encapsulation so you know how that goes. But also working on some of the smaller items. I have the compost bin framed now and the ventilation fan is nearly ready for installation. All the head box internal parts are encapsulated so I can st...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Neel, you are a building machine!! I think about the amount of work it takes to build just one boat and you are on #3 I think. Looks great.

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Looks nice Tuck. I decided to leave my side overhang in place until after the flip. It turned out to be a good decision. Much easier to take care after the flip and in my case I had to make some adjustments to the fairing on the sheer. And as Billy mentioned, the edge will be finished in some manner...

Re: Klondike Build

Steve , looks great. Man, do I know what you mean about everything taking much longer than anticipated. The interior, in addition to being a lot of parts, requires a higher level of finish. It looks like you might be able to sell your home once you're finished. Looking really comfortable. :D :D

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Looks great Carl! Have you tried putting on a few coats in one day so that you can avoid sanding between coats? I feel that all I'm doing lately is epoxying and varnishing stuff too I was looking to speed it up so I tried applying two coats in a day on my bright transom on the sail and it seemed to...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Here's some more. I am framing the composting bin as well. Still more work to do on that.

Making the frame for the compost bin.

Adding spacers to the frame. Another piece will be epoxied to the top, effectively sandwiching the bin in the frame. Then I'll make a wooden cover.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Been a few weeks since I've visited the forum. Work has kept me pretty busy, but I am still making progress on the boat. Mostly encapsulation work right now which means coat, wait, sand, coat, wait, sand, coat.... I will be painting the bilge and side wall in the head box area soon so I am focusing ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Steve and Matt, The hardwood edges was done primarily to give a more durable edge to the parts that moved like the hinged inner lid. But I liked the look enough to carry it over to other parts. All of those parts will be painted on the plywood and leave the edges bare (with epoxy encapsulatio...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Just a quick update. Making progress on head box parts. I am going to finish most of the head box assembly and then move on to adding additional floor bracing in place or work on getting the electrical panel installed. This is part of my new plan to get more functional work done. IMG_20180224_093838...
