Good luck with your tour. Been in that position myself many many years ago.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Having very little boating experience I cannot say which is better, however, from a purely structural point of view, I would think the 90 degree would hold up better.

Re: Hunky Dory Build

Nice work and great progress. I think we would all love to have that space. I suppose if we lived in a different time (before HOA's) it might be a normal thing. :D :D :D

Re: Minnesota Squirt Build

Good luck with the fairing. I mean that in a good way. It's a process and just take your time. And if something starts to look odd, stop and re-evaluate. If things get a bit off, you can almost certainly correct it.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

With aircraft cable systems, there often are springs in the system. Additionally the use of turnbuckles makes it easier to adjust tension as the cables stretch over time.

Re: Tahoe 23

A nicely designed bimini top will provide the shade you need.We have the same problem here, sun as hot as a furnace in the summer. It's one of the main reasons I shortened the length of the cabin on my boat and I will also be doing a bimini top of some type.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl I can't tell if your front frames are taller than the roof arches. If they are not, I would put a doubler on the front and make a brow. The lower edge could parallel the window or be sloped. Then arch the top edge. Looks great! This is a fun part (When it's done.). Bill The top pf the forward ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Tony!

Made some more good progress today and got the cabin roof beams fitted. This is another of those big visual milestones. It really shows the cabin shape.

Re: Tahoe 23

I've been looking at pictures of captain chairs for my boat since I plan on mounting them on pedestal mounts. But the actual design I will use is still not determined yet.

That is a lovely interior on whatever boat that was taken from.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim, How much headroom will you have in there? Is it enough to stand up? Only if I stand on my knees or leave the roof covering off!! :lol: :lol: Seriously though, I knew this going into the build when I started. Even if built to original plan, it would have been 8 inches too short in the cab...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Any reason for the doublers to be so wide? Jimmy, The doublers have to support a 1 1/2" beam with a bit of meat left over so 2 inches would be the minimum I would want. When I initially laid out the curve, I chose 3 inches. However on the forward end it will be closer to the 2 inches. I still have ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Peter, Bryan, and Tom. I've been somewhat busy with other activities but have managed to get some boat work done as well. The two front window back frames are glued together and ready for the next step which is shaping the side and center posts. However, before doing that I needed to get the ...
