Re: Matt's Geronimo

Cool Matt. I am so tempted to take on the deck next on my boat but I just need to be patient and complete the other stuff first. But it's one of those signs of progress that I am really looking forward to. I am sure you are feeling quite satisfied right now.

Re: Michael's ZIP

Nice work Mike. I remember agonizing over my stem and frame 6 for weeks, before finally just taking the plunge and gluing it up. You've done a fine job there. So is the excitement building?

Re: Michigan Squirt Build

Very neat Jimmy. Those old engines have a lot of character and fit the designs we're building to a T. You've done a fine job there. It would be fun to be in the know and listen to all the comments you're going to get!

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Neel, It's Total Boat Bilge Paint but it does take several coats to cover. It also takes several days to fully cure. Hard as a rock afterwards though. I wanted t a glossy finish in the bilge to make it easier to wipe down. Personally, if you can spray this, that would be best, although take precauti...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for posting those Bill. I'll compare them to my own plans and see what I can do. This morning I finished the bilge painting in the cabin area and continued painting the floor panels. Still need to do the edges on the panels. This is not a fun thing to do, it's how, uncomfortable, and stinks b...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the responses Bill & Neel. I am planning on looking over other boats as well as prototyping the cabin sides before I commit to the real thing. I don't want the cabin wall to incline too much but I will consider what you said Neel. If I would have thought of this when making the frames...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim. I planned on doing some research and price checking before I do anything else. On another note, I've had a successful experiment in producing a beveled panel prototype. The plan is to use a series of these on the carlings to angle the cabin walls in approximately 5 degrees. I'll attach t...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the responses guys. I am still not sure where I will place the outlets, but since I am in painting the bilge mode, it can wait for a bit. I will have to make a decision fairly soon though. Since bilge paint takes so long to cure fully, I am going to be experimenting with an idea to slight...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Nice progress Matt. I think the painted plan is good too. I'm still up in the air on my deck. But I was originally going to veneer the exterior of the hull to get that woody look, but decided I was not going to have the energy to maintain it later in life. So I switched to a paint design about 4 yea...

Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

Perhaps you can just modify the cover rather than remake. It's going to be a box regardless. Add some curved corners and or exterior trim pieces. You might be surprised. Looking great so far.
