Re: modified malahini

I feel for you Bryan about the cold. Although our winters here a milder than those back east, it still does put a damper on epoxy work.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Ken and Bryan. I am still not sure that the boat will even be ready for launch by September at this point. I am going to have to play it by ear for now as regards the Gathering. Today, I am waiting for some epoxy to cure so I wanted to start experimenting with ideas for trimming out the cabin...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Here's some shot of the upper compartments. I haven't finished cleaning these up yet and the hatches have not been made yet. But I like the look this is going to add to the boat. Trim work on all of this has still not been accomplished yet . PXL_20210103_182539906.jpg PXL_20210103_182522160.jpg

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well, another year has gone by, and I was able to get in some decent progress this last two weeks while off for the holidays. My main goal was to try and get the motorwell mostly completed. It's not quite there yet, but most of the parts are now installed. It took awhile because I needed to build up...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

One of the nice advantages of visiting boat shows in the past is that I got a chance to see other's work and I could see the same fit and finish challenges that I've run into. It' helps to make me feel less like an amateur woodworker (even though I am). :D :D

Re: Tahoe 23

Very nice Tony. I see a beautiful summer ride coming soon.

I'm torn on the the stain and no stain approach to wood finishing. I understand and appreciate the advantages of not staining but I stained most of my cabin interior parts long ago and so I'm trying to decide what to do about it.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Very very nice Matt. The shine looks exceptional! I'm starting to come around to this type of finish for my cabin sides. Your varnish work makes it look very attractive. :D :D

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

Nice clean installation Robert! I appreciate what you're going through here. I think its the planning and trying to cover all the bases that takes far more time than the actual building. Access has to allow for form and function as well as strength. Not always an easy mix of requirements.

Re: Klondike Build

Steve, the interior looks great. I think back on all the years we've been doing this and I still marvel at your taking on this build. She's a testament to your labor of love. Hoping that this coming year will finally see all the work pan out and that transportation issues get worked out soon.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Nice to see you being able to get to the final planking Lee. I remember how much work it took to get the edges flat on my cabin sides (and they are still not perfect). I can only imagine the amount of work it will take to plank the hull. But So worth it in the end. Looks great so far.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, Are you ok?? Been 4 weeks buddy. Hope all is well. Thanks Billy, Yes all s fine. Thanks for asking. I've been slowly making progress on the motorwell. Not a very photogenic part of the build and the progress has been somewhat slowed by work commitments before the holidays. The motorwell consi...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim. Slowly getting the motorwell installed now. The bulkhead and about 60% of the structure has been glued into position. The weather's turned colder so epoxy cure times are slowing me down. I do have some new pictures, but they are essentially identical to earlier sots of this area, except ...
