I am building the transom and need to keep the camber boards away from the exhaust.
What are the "rules" or pro's and con's to the exhaust port location in relation to the water line of the boat. Above the water line? Below the water line? Split the water line?
Thanks!

Mine is above the waterline. That is after I had to rip the camber board out.

It is a matter of personal preference.
I put mine as high as possible thinking that if something went wrong with an exhaust hose, water wouldn't come in and sink the boat.
It was too late for me in the build to go completely above the water line, but I came close. (structure was in the way).

Good advice. I will position the camber boards accordingly.

With that said, the way I read the instructions the "estimated" water line is 2" below the set-up level on the Barrelback?

I have a question for Jim Neely. Thank you for your picture, it looks awesome. I notice that you still have the boat on a wooden stand. Is the engine in the boat? And if so, how do you plan to lift the boat onto a trailer?

Thanks!
The engine is not in the boat yet. I am waiting for my trailer to be completed. The plan is to jack up the boat, roll the cradle out, and back the trailer under the jacked up boat. I am familiar with the process as I had to previously replace a cradle with the current cradle. Once the boat is on the trailer, I will drop the engine into the boat. That's the plan anyway.

I have 5" above the set up level to the camber board. Hope that will be enough for exhaust to be out of the water.
90s today, that fan sure feels good. Put ice in a insulated cup then the glue cup in that...seems to make the glue last longer.
Happy fathers day to all!

Looks really good, nice and neat. Why don’t you have epoxy oozing out of all the joints making a mess like my B-back?

Thanks guys. Looking forward to the next layer. It will probably be the messy layer. :)

Flipped her over the other day! Yay! Cool! Wow!
Well, sorry I cheated.
Got bored and decided to do a pre-flip, flip. It only has one layer of ply on it. I did get in and make some engine noises. What a hoot. It also gave me some ideas to improve my flipping hardware for the boat when it is a couple hundred pounds heavier.

Made my hardwood planking yesterday. Clean up today took quite a while, and a leaf blower.
Planks turned out great.

Man that is looking great. I live in Somerset, KY and i am having trouble locating marine grade plywood. What kind of plywood are you using and where did you find it? Keep it up she is looking good!
