Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl: I like the idea of the electrical panel on the front(?) of the helm station. I would put it in a closable cabinet if there is enough room. Yes and just to be clear what I mean is that it will be facing into the forward cabin and it will be inside a closable compartment. One of the reasons I c...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I've been staring at this picture all day, trying to visualize a different way of doing this that would have two seats. But I am sorry, I am going to stick to my original design on this. I am more interested in maximizing space and functionality in the aft cabin. If you look at the picture, you can ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Question regarding the two fuel tanks. I know that it is not allowed (or maybe not a good idea) to connect these via a common point under the floor because of the potential for leaks. So that means no common feed point for the motor, or at least no equal draining of the fuel tanks. Meaning that one ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the responses everyone. Tim, I also purchased electrical plans from Glen L and my own system is largely based upon those plans. Matt, The stereo may be in the helm, but I was just wondering if it might fit in the panel. I expect the only time I will be using it is when I am at a stop so b...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Okay, First off, an update on progress. I've decided against a copilot seat on the other side of the boat (across from the helm) because I am placing the fuel tank in this area and covering it with a cabinet to hide it. The cabinet is going to double as a place to place drinks or food when we are ou...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, I like the new pedestal. Will there be a matching co-pilot seat? Have you considered moving the windshield brackets inboard a little so the molding shape/roof edge would pass by the windshield uninterrupted? Tom Thanks Tom, The copilot seat is still up in the air for the moment because I have...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The windshield frames won't be a problem for the garage door because they won't be installed until after the boat is moved from the garage. I mainly put them there for now because I wanted to get some idea how they integrated into other trim work. The helm, aft roof line trim, interior wall paneling...

Re: Otter's Ski Bass

Thanks, Tom - side clearance and clamping clearance are good points to consider as well. I believe my Mist Miss is 6" more in beam and 7" more in hull depth, so I'll have to be sure to have the wingspan to reach the keel. Regardless. While the skin is off, you'll be able to work in there and after ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Today was busy with home activities but I did find a bit of time to work on some of the other mocking I was writing about yesterday. The first photo shows why I wanted to mock up the windshield frame. I am working on how I want to transition from a radiused edge on the cabin roof to a straightedge o...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the links, Tom. I looked these over, but I think I want to go with the DIY approach as well. After getting the seat figured out earlier today, I wanted to start working out how I was going to actually build the helm, platform, and seat. However, the more I looked at it and thought about i...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Geez, this slow internet is a real drag. Posted a response and it got lost in translation. :( Anyway, thanks all for the feedback. Tom, Thanks for the link to Van Dam. I looked at the Blue Star helm and it gave me some ideas on how to address the top of the helm cabinet (trying to get it to match th...
