Wow Robert,
Great Job!!! I've been absent from the forums lately as my wife and I sold our house in Port Orchard and moved over to West Seattle now. I just started catching up on everything I missed and apparently it was a lot. I would have loved to have been there for the flip. :)

I'm really happy everything is going well for you and it looks fantastic. One of these weekends, I will have to drive out to Renton and see you and your boat in person. It's much closer now than it was before we moved, in fact, I've biked through Renton a few times.

Also, your shop space is amazing. When we moved we ended up downsizing significantly and any chance of building a boat where were now renting is out of the question. I've been trying to figure out a way to have a shop but nothing has come to mind yet.

Hope all is well and can't wait to see more progress.

Regards,
Sean

Very nice! Trying to figure out how to flip mine. What transmission did you go with?

Onto the deck and mechanicals.

Looks great! I'm still jealous of all the room you have.

Bob:

Tell me a little about your deck construction, how did you do the covering boards? Did you use solid wood or did you make a composite?
I'm curious, because I'm approaching that step. What I'm thinking of doing is to do the whole deck in 1/4" plywood as specified and adding 3/4 inch deck pieces, including the covering boards. Overbuilt , but lots of fairing room. I'm curious how others have done it.

Well my carpentry is not as precision as yours, but I use each step to correct what surfaces.
I intend to longboard the framing members and make sure everything fits as well as possible.
After everything is layed, I will fair, add filler and sand as necessary to get a smooth and fair surface.
I was thinking of adding a layer of glass before I lay the decking members to provide a good foundation.
I'm going to resaw and plane everthing for the deck, so what thickness would you recommend?
I've got the material in large format so I can choose the dimensions...

Hi Robert,

I think this pic shows it all.

Image

1/4" Sub deck
1/4" covering board stock

The is 3/4" stock at the edge and it all gets blended together.
Not sure how it is done on a barrel back... I'm betting it is a bit different.
Does that help?

hi Robert-
Bob is correct. the barrelback uses solid coverboard stock. this allows enough material to fair your coverboard, rounding it heavily into the topsides. one way you might "cheat" is to deck in ply and veneer the coverboard as Bob shows at the bow. Then join your veneered coverboard about where the engine compartment ends and run solid stock from that point to the stern. you can look at pictures of the deck and coverboards in my build link below and get an idea for how much stock has to be removed to get the barrel shape to work

Time to start installing the mechanicals. A quick question for the list, "What did you use to bed the stuffing box, and rudder hardware?"

Thanks Billy, that's what I thought but it never hurts to check, rather than redo it later.

If you us 5200, make sure you get your through bolts well sealed and you get everything cleaned up. Because, once this stuff cures it's not coming off without something breaking.

I used 4200 because it at least has a slim chance of coming apart..
5200 is permanent. Like death and taxes permanent.
