Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Fraser, good to hear from you again. Don't worry, the sanding is part of the price for getting to the flip. Looking forward to photos. as for photos, i would suggest adding them as attachments instead of hosting them and adding them as links.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hi Carl, Just in comment on automatic type bilge pumps vs float switch controlled ones like yours. I am no expert in bilge pumps, and on my sailboat it was a manual switch, but the boat took on very little water from the gore-tex stuffing at the shaft. Anyway, when building my Double Eagle, I had r...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The remaining pieces of the cabin floor structure have been installed now. This includes pads for the bilge pumps and switches. I am going to hold off on painting for now while I move up in the vertical direction. I'll lay in a temporary floor to make it more comfortable to work. The actual floor pi...

Looking good Dave. Adding the fore deck is one of those tasks that gives cool visual progress results.

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Craig, Regarding the door for your cabin, I was facing a similar problem with the open cabin approach I am going to use with my Vera Cruise. How was I going to provide the degree of privacy "I Thought" my wife would need. I was trying to come up with all sorts of fancy fold open head boxes...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Bill, and Jim Bill, I was looking at the photo and it gives the appearance that there is a short distance from the outlet to the wooden support. Actually it is underneath the support and the hose outlet has nearly a straight shot. I believe that it will be a gradual curve upward. It could pos...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I don't know what it is, but there is something about non wood parts, i.e. the equipment, that when it's getting close to time to install it, makes the boat feel more real. Although I am still a ways off from actually installing these, looking at them while they are sitting there on their new pads g...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Peter and Bryan, I hope that my efforts at documenting the build will be of use to more people in the coming years. I've mentioned this before, but it was the lack of information about the Vera Cruise that prompted me to do what I am doing. And although my boat is going to be somewhat differe...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Denon, The glossiness is going to really pop once you get it all smoothed out. That dark color is very eye-catching! :) :) It seems alien to me to hear you talking about cold weather up there. Down to )! Not to be rubbing it in anyone's noses but we are still in mid 90's down here is Texas. I guess ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

After seeing all the boats splashed this weekend, it's hard to not want to go to the lake and rent something, just so I can get out on the water!. This is definitely trying my patience. I know that the end result is worth it, all I have to do is see the smiles on the faces of those who have complete...

Re: modified malahini

Looking good Bryan, I bet it feels good to get to this point. I remember how I felt when I got my transom stained. That seems so long ago now!
