Re: Florida Barrelback

Price per sheet of plywood, as well as price per gallon of epoxy, is of small portion of the total cost of the total build. If this is your first build, then of course you cannot see this until,,,,,,you get to the end of your build,,,,,,, the end of the build is the most expensive,,,,systems,,,wirin...

Re: Florida Barrelback

I have never found a hard and fast dimension for the inboard engine mount spacing, center-to-center. although 24" seems the most common
If your stringers are assumed 1" too wide, then make the difference with the beds, adjust and build to suit.
the engine mounts are somewhat adjustable in width

Re: Florida Barrelback

As far as I know on this forum, nobody that ever stretched their hull has had a complaint.
But, there some that built regular per the plans and later say 'I wish I had stretched it'

And, a hull form longer and leaner will always have the better seakeeping attributes.

Re: Florida Barrelback

I sell lumber. We are totally out of deck boards, 4x4s, and a bunch of other stuff. We get a couple of bunks in here and there and they are gone within a day or two. The treatment plants probably won't be caught up until next spring. Same here, whats up with that? Is everybody building a new deck w...

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

I just made a road trip and went by Hales Bar. I stopped very briefly to walk the docks. Looks like all the cabins are floating level. the docks are same old story. dock bumpers missing or hanging loose. dock cleats loose or not there. For a place that classifies itself as 'marina' , it sure doesn't...

Re: Florida Barrelback

Since you did the kayak in prep for the BarrelB, you are well on your way to a good build. I have not built a cold mold hull, I built a 25' planked hull, but I do see 3 common areas in all the posts on the forum: the junction of stem-chines-breasthook the fairing process drilling the shaft hole The ...

Re: Florida Barrelback

Mock ups are good, good therapy too.
At some point you will be in a mockup, sitting on a egg rate, and buzzing your lips making engine noises.

Whats the wood looking canoe/kayak hanging in the ceiling background ???

Re: Bolero wake boat

Just my opinion, but wake boats should be banned or regulated. When they come out, I have to go in to shore because the chop is too much to pound through. Not trying to start a controversy here, but just know there are other people trying to enjoy the water too. It would be an interesting problem t...

Book Match QTR sawn Sapele

I have some pretty Sapele, that I need the space more than I need the wood. My interests have drifted towards metal working lately, and wood working is seemingly on the back burner. I'm in Savannha, Ga area, if you want some pretty stuff, PM me. I had asked the wood yard for 4/4 Sapele, and he sold ...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

What would y’all do with underside of engine hatch? Mirror stainless is too pricey, and not too keen on paint, flat screen TV would be cool but I don’t watch much TV. I’m still scratching my head on this one, nothing might be the answer. Matt B sound proofing material, some is a black color, some i...

Re: Atlantic Skiff build

Wow !! 8600gph pumps...got enough battery to run that??
BTW, some builders put a Y-valve in the raw water intake side of engine, such that the engine itself can be used as a crash bilge pump, if you can keep the engine running you got a massive pump that will pump until you run outta gas.

Re: Atlantic Skiff build

They are the two I have been looking at. Never thought of replacing the flapper with wood. If you go back to page 10 of this thread and zoom in on the boat there, you can see the holes with no flapper. Do you see a problem with the holes and no flapper? I dunno about no flapper, or a wide open scup...
