Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Craig. Continuing work on the cabinet. This particular piece presents a few fit problems in that it doesn't conveniently match up to more than one frame, it has cut outs that will need to match the inward cant of the cabin sides , and mounting points on the floor that preclude sliding a compl...

Re: SEA KNIGHT

Hey Craig, nice to hear from you again. I am planning on mounting my mast a bit further forward and considering hinging it so that it will lie flat. Since I plan on having "wings" on my mast, I am not sure yet how that is going to work. I am still quite a ways from worrying about the mast ...

Re: Michael's ZIP

Michael, I made to small wedges at the angle I needed using my table saw, then attached them to a piece of plywood. Sandwich the board between them and then use your router to cut the scarf joint. The wedges can be moved move different widths. I think that you should consider the scarf over the lap ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Making slow progress on the cabinet. Mostly trying to figure out what I want in it, and how to make sure the cabinet will be strong enough while at the same time making it so I can install it later. All of my interior is in that state right now. All pieces are sub assemblies that will need to be tie...

Re: My (Sort Of) Sea Knight Build

Sounds great Fraser. You're making faster progress than I did. Took me 4 years to get to the flip stage. I left my bottom partially painted and plan to have it final painted after the boat is finished. Not sure yet how I am going to accomplish that, but I suspect it will be something like that done ...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

For my anchor well, I am considering some plastic webbing material, sort of like what you might stand on as a comfort mat while working, but a bit harder. here is a link. https://www.webstaurantstore.com/cactus-mat-2554-ut-dri-dek-12-x-12-blue-vinyl-interlocking-drainage-floor-tile-9-16-thick/844255...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Looks great Matt. I have been planning on the ETEC 115 for my Vera Cruise but may still consider a 90 for the weight reduction. It's hard to judge how much power will be needed. Your Geronimo has made really fast progress lately. I bet it feels good after having to put on the brakes early when you h...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Beginning to wonder if the Earth is moving closer to the sun. If it gets much hotter, I am going to start working at night (heck with the noise) (Just kidding).

108 degrees today!!

Re: Howdy from Texas

Hi Bill, Welcome to the forum. There are many builders here in Texas building Glen L designs. Probably an equal number building Bateau and any other number of designer's boats. This forum is primarily Glen L builders although people are building/restoring (and have built) other designs. Best part of...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Water will mainly be for washing although I plan on making it potable. Normally plan on having a cooler with bottled water handy. Frankly, I've gone round and round on this particular feature, not sure just how useful it will be, but in the end felt that having a means to clean hands would handy.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Finally, after 10 days of waiting to get well enough to work on the boat, I was able to get back to it. Today was so blinking hot that I couldn't stay outside for very long, but I managed to get a platform made for the cabinet to hold the fresh water and gray water tanks. It's a tight fit, bit I can...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Ha ! Very astute observation! Thanks for the concern guys. Had a bit of a flare up of pain yesterday afternoon. I guess the treatment only accelerates the passing of the stone, so some pain from the continued voyage down the "Great Circle Route" is to be expected. Bill, Thanks for the head...
