Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

You're getting there Jim, perhaps by next summer, you'll be on the water. And if not, well, there's plenty of more fun building along the way. Looks great!

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Hey Neel, I remember about 4 years ago when I seemed to be stuck in frame building mode and you were kind enough to keep praising my work on the frames. Thanks for that as I am now of course much further along. But I had to laugh when I saw your latest picture and think how the situation has reverse...

Re: Monaco Restart

It's always cool to see boats getting closer to the finish line. I'd say that this Monaco is going to look great when finished. Looks good now!. :D :D

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

This is going to be beautiful Neel. I don't know how you guys do this. It takes all my energy to keep at my first build. :D :D

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Honestly, this all bothers me a bit. Sure wish I had known all of that before I drilled my 1" holes. Broaching them out bigger won't be clean.... Another option (test first) is to put in a 1" dowel rod into the hole (maybe even glue it in temporarily). The pilot drill and use a larger For...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Old sparky? A reference perhaps regarding the nearness of the electrical panel to the head plumbing? :D :D I had thought about that, but there is no actual plumbing on that side of the boat and the other side will have a sink (probably) so it should be okay. Just hope I don't have to interrupt someo...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I'm still alive. I've been pre-occupied lately with numerous things so the build is progressing a bit slower. I've been creating the parts for the head box and have most of them made now but need to get some wood for veneering before I can move forward with assembly. I am hoping to get that this wee...

Re: modified malahini

Bryan, Two things I would do here. First, wait at least a day (assuming it gets up over 50 degrees today) to see if the epoxy is just slow curing because of the cold. Secondly, in a controlled environment (i.e. not cold) test out the Silvertip on a scrap piece of wood and glass to see if you have a ...

Thanks for mentioning that Tom. Seems silly that I wouldn't think of that, but it is quite simple and a variation of this idea would be well suited to my boat.

Re: Aluminum Boat Cabins

These postings are such a wealth of information. Thanks again Kevin!. I've been pondering how to transition my wooden cabin with curves and I think this will help immensely. Thanks again.

Re: A Couple More Upholstery Projects

I've never cared for sewing in the past, but I am excited to get to this stage of the build. For two reasons. First, it signals that I am finally getting close to being done. And secondly, after watching most of the SailRite videos, I feel that I can do this and look forward to creating my own versi...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Bill is correct about the toilet, it will be simply emptied at the marina or at home. I am not sure yet about a sink. I have been trying to keep systems simple in the boat and would rather avoid any type of holding system for gray water. I am planning on a small mini bar (mostly to hold ice and a fe...

Re: Securing Gas Tank

I don't have access to the link right now, but David Pascoe has a series of articles concerning proper fuel tank installations. It's more geared towards permanent mount but it might be worth reading. The gist of the material that I have read is regarding aluminum tank installation since this is what...

I'm thinking on using wood pellets and kitty litter that controls ammonia put in larger freezer zip lock bags so won't have loose stuff getting damp.also have storage areas each side of bucket. Hi Tim, Well I haven't actually determined or purchased ...

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...
