Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well hopefully that will be the end of the toilet jokes! :oops: Tim, I will have a vent stack with exhaust fan. what is not really apparent yet is that the head box will also contain a small storage area as well as a small covered storage for saw dust, peat moss,or whatever is needed for that aspect...

Re: Making progress on my Monaco.

My wife and I attended the 35th annual Hill Country Boat show in Horseshoe Bay, TX this past weekend and took the Monaco for its first boat show. There were about 30 boats there, including a few fiberglass ones. It is an ACBS event, but it was not officially judged. The members present were asked t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Ha Ha Tracy, good catch. It wasn't even intentional on my part! :oops: Today I am working more on the head box, more specifically, fitting the floor that sets under it. So far today, I've managed to recover from 5 screw ups. A couple more will be repaired later when I fiberglass the floor piece. One...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I figured you had a way to keep the Black Ghost Ship "Poo" from setting sail. A cleat attached to the underside of the narrow strips and extending a little inboard might be all you need to support the center panel. Anxious to see what you come up with... Tom That's what I was thinking as ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the feedback Tom, Tim, Matt, and Jim! Before I answer, The ply that is in there now is not the final panel, simply a temporary piece until I can make the real thing. It is crap plywood and saves me from breaking my neck when stepping over the frames !! I don’t understand completely, I don...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

Matt, I can fully appreciate what you are going through. I had to do this last summer when it was blazing and it was all I could do to make myself do it. It's fun to see the picture you posted. It looks just like mine. I hope you can get the boat in the water by next summer. You and Bob in Californi...

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

Jim, as always, looking very good. Your dedication to detail and desire to get an accurate replica are going to make your boat a site to behold and you'll be giving the older boats a good run for trophies should you decide to go that route. In my mind, there is no desirability difference between a f...

Re: Glen-L 14 Build

James, the beauty of these boats is that you can use a combination of the time it takes to build them, the information you get from this forum, and your own ability to learn to get one of these boats built. Nearly everyone here started off as a total amateur in this endeavor. Please keep us posted.

Re: Tahoe 23

What helps with this is to get a small tool bag and keep the most commonly used tools (tape measure, pencil, knife, speed square, small level, tape, and flashlight) in it and in the boat. It doesn't eliminate the need to get in and out of the boat, but it does reduce the need (as long as you remembe...

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Another idea, I believe it was Roberta who first mentioned this to me a few years ago, is to connect a small chain through the holes to the plugs. This way if they are loose, they will not get lost and if you happen to forget to put them in before going into the water, you could conceivably pull the...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well, I am still open to ideas if any come up, however, I think I might have a solution. I forgot about the KREG pocket hole jig that makes it possible to install screws at an angle. I could use this to cut the pockets in the cross beams and then use silicon bronze screws as well as epoxy. This woul...
