I'm the sweaty one in the yellow shirt. Actually it wasn't bad at all. We hooked my truck to the strap and just slowly backed up and then the boat was right side up.

Boat grew since it was turned over. Its a lot bigger than I thought. So now I'm sanding the interior to clean it up before epoxy coating. Also working on the sheers lines. does anyone with a barrel back have any pictures of the rear section by the transom before putting on the deck?

I think boats grow twice during the build John. Once when you flip em and again when the deck goes on. Oh, and its always bigger when youre sanding.

It grew. NO KIDDING. I was waiting for you to say that.

I can read your mind John, I agonized over that joint for weeks. What i did is too late for you however, I flipped her over before fairing the sheer and putting on the aft side planking. Screwed on a temporary template of the deck line that was fair and brought the sides up to it. Going from a flush deck to side joint at the trasom to vertical deck edge amidship only required a tiny fillet run with a teaspoon to look half assed ok. Could not figure out any other way to do it.

So many projects..so little time. How many degrees of turn should the rudder have? Is 45 degrees each way enough?

John - My rudder turns 45 degrees at most and performs just fine.

Good I was hoping that 45 degrees would work. Next question is what type of fastener should be used for the shaft log? Mine is for 1 1/4 shaft and is fairly large. I have found silicon bronze lag bolts but they are about $10 each for a two inch long X 1/4 diameter. There are ,I think, 12 indents for the fasteners on the shaft log. Would I have disimilar metal issues if I used a different fastener like stainless? This is inside the boat not in the water. Would #10 wood screws be satisfactory?

John - I suppose you are talking about the strut not the log.

I would bolt but I did not pay anywhere near that amount per bolt in silicon bronze.
Let me look at my source and pricing and I will PM you

John

Galvanically, stainless, bronze and aluminum are very close. So the dissemilar metal is not an big issue.

It's truly amazing all the things one can learn on this forum.
Dave it's the shaft log. The strut and backup are finished only awaiting the bronze machine screws, which weren't bad in price. The shaft log is pretty hefty as it's for 1 1/4. Pictures are on the way.

John - Slap some polysulfide on that flange and screw it down with #10s. I have #8s on mine but mine is 1". There is little to any pressure applied to the log. It is just a water dam. The seal takes the abuse from the shaft. I cannot fathom a need for bolts on the log.
