Hello from Andrew C from Brisbane Australia

Post by Andrew c » Sat May 11, 2019 8:38 pm

Hi everyone. I have started the barrel back 19 several years ago and did nothing for a loan time.
Now I am back and have the frames made, the stem and transform and the base frame done. The keel is in place and I am
Presently working on the chine. Today I scarfed the chine pieces getting ready to attach them to the frames.

Hi Andrew,

I am at the finishing stages of the Belle Isle.

The barrel back is such an amazing shape, just food for thought but I added just over 2 inches to the height of the frames to give the top deck more camber as I thought it to be too flat.
It will also give you a bit of extra room under deck for the engine
Keen to see your progress
Jamie
