Re: Building The Vera Cruise

So, did you did you decide to close it in or are you just playing? No, the walls you see are the ones I elected to include in the final design. The opening in between will remain open. The wall on the starboard will eventually be the cabin side of the helm station which is nearly as big as the wall...

While one can serve as a handy footstool, don't try and substitute 5 of them for a ladder!! :? :?

Cool Matt. How far does it extend past the stem? Mine should be here Thursday?

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Some of the wake boats I see around here are wide enough that you could fit two of my boat on side by side, or at least it seems so.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Pretty cool Tim. The lower part of my box on the left will not be very useful because it is actually hiding the fuel tank. But the upper section has room for some drawers or something. I'll start figuring that out when I get to it. Had to do some yard work today. Not my favorite thing to do, but at ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I wonder if the Sea Knight is also narrower since it shares the hull design with the Geronimo. Perhaps it is the same design but wider? I am not sure. But I know for my boat that I wish the boat were a bit wider. On the other hand, if I wanted a modern wide boat, I could have bought one. This will b...

Re: Long Bow Eye

Good to hear. Mine should be here in a few days. I hope the distance between the threaded rods is the same as my other bow eye since I've already drilled the holes. If not, well, there will be some repairing in my future. :D :D

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Thank you Carl. In regard to the limbers clogging with epoxy...good catch, I hadn't considered that. I wonder if putting foam packing peanut (see the picture) in the limber would work. Has anyone tried something like this? Please let me know. Thank you. Lee Lee I've thought about Styrofoam. Then a ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Okay, so I've started on the work that I had mocked up. The first thing that is getting installed is an extension to the aft roof line. This is necessary to get the aft wall of the cabin to line up correctly with the aft cabin. I rabbeted the existing roof line and then epoxied the extension (which ...
