Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Funny you should mention the front and back garage doors, Carl. We have the hangar door in the back and the garage doors in the front. We usually drive in the back access road and drive through our back yard entering the garage/ hangar from the runway side. Instead of taxiing a plane through the ba...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the kind words Tim, Matt, Joe, and Skip. can't wait til you're in the wiring stage.I got a 25 ft chunk coming tomorrow-126 bucks.Yikes Yeh, I truly appreciate that. Copper wire is expensive especially marine grade. That last one I had, the doctors made me go through 2 weeks of pure hell b...

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

Of course it's not all correct thinking on my part concerning the bandsaw. I too wanted one of those super nice saws as well as a nice table saw. What saved my from these purchases was the absolute lack of space in my garage. As it is, I have to move the bandsaw and table saw around just to use them...

Re: Tucker's Squirt

Always refreshing to see new tips come across this forum. I've sometimes wondered about the eventual mounting of the outboard on my Vera Cruise. I've seen the transom bands mentioned by Matt (i.e. Hercdrvr) but the rubber pads are something I didn't consider. I can see that this is another area I am...

Re: Shop size

Here's a consideration. Not sure of you live in an HOA controlled neighborhood or not, but a temporary shelter attached to your garage and closed off so that it can get any heat from a heater in your garage might be an option. Admittedly this will probably only work if you live out in the rural area...

Re: Curing too fast

One thing to do as often as possible is do jobs in small batches. Leave the large jobs for cooler temps like in the morning. Or break the larger jobs down into smaller jobs if possible. For planking plywood sheets of course this is not possible and the early morning option is your only real choice. ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Got through the kidney stone ordeal. Had to have a lithotripsy procedure, but came through with flying colors. Should be able to get back on my boat by this weekend. Going to pick up my freshwater system parts tomorrow. Thanks for the kind words.

Re: Ridgid 14" bandsaw

I have lost confidence in this machine for resawing now that I've done some research. 3/4 HP and aluminum wheels might not be up to the task. Now I want something BIGGER!!!!!!! Tom I understand the sentiment. But you should ask yourself of how much usage you will get from the the bigger saw. Not tr...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Bill, Tim, and Peter. This is the first time for me. My on and wife have had this , but I was fortunate. I think it might be because I've been spending too much time outside in the heat and not drinking enough water.

Hoping to get it taken care of tomorrow. :D Carl. Are the cabin sides straight? or will they be slightly curved? The Cabin sides are straig...

Re: 16ft cabin skiff....s&g tabloid cruiser

Also keep in mind that most of us here are not professional boat builders or designers so some questions may not get answered because no one knows for sure. I agree that technical questions of this sort should be asked at Glen L.

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...
