Barrelback

Postby quiet12 » Mon Feb 27, 2017 5:22 pm

Question to anyone that has built the Barrelback, has anyone modified the design for a single large cockpit instead of the two separate seating areas? is there a frame between the two seating areas that cannot be removed?

Thanks
Avi

I am building one. There is not a frame between the seats, so you can choose to put in the separation or make it one big cockpit. I choose the beam, but would be very roomy without.

Thank you for the quick reply.
Did you have to decide on your engine before you started?
What size engine did you select and why?
Also, what do you estimate your budget will be and how long do you think it will take?

I like the design and I am very interested in possibly building this one. I do like the idea of a roomy cockpit. It's atypical but so am I. :P

Gracias!

Hi,
I'm also building a barrelback. Will (alycat) and I are having a race. :lol:
A classic boat builder once told me that after you have the hull completed, you can do just about anything you want on the inside. He worked on the boat in the pics below. It's a the glen L barrelback design. Beautiful boat!

Ken Hankinson's designs have heavy shear logs. Once even a narrow side deck with carlings is built, the boat is very strong! These boats could easily be open utilities.

Jimbob, have been watching your builds (Allycat as well). Coming along great and we will have to organize a get together for the No Cal gang! Lakes will be nice and full this summer no doubt.

Nice to finally meet the man behind the beautiful boat. I stumbled across pictures of your boat on the internet when I first decided to build a barrelback. Later, I met the guy in Rancho Cordova that installed your engine. When I told him what I was doing, he told be about your boat. Thanks for inspiring me!

@alycat

Just stalked your FB page and photos of your build. Damn! I am impressed.
