Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom... Everything looks great. Those are the exact cup holders I had in my Gentry. You might want to step up a notch or two to get better quality, but they do work and are out of the way when not in use.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom... Just a thought on cupholders: In the front cockpit of my Gentry I found two cup holders that retracted into the front vertical panel of the seat. They actually swiveled out and in. I don't know where I got them, but they weren't expensive and did the job. I installed them side by side in the ...

Re: 19ft Barrelback Oklahoma

I would leave them as is and move only the ones that get in the way. It's not that hard to cut them out, but why make extra work for yourself? You will probably only have to move two, or maybe four of them. Best of luck to you as you continue your BB..... Neel

Yes.. Craig and I will be hosting a "Spaghetti Dinner" at the Big House on Thursday evening. We had 56 people at G-13, so shooting for at least 75 at G-15.

Re: Can I use 1/4" (6mm) Plywood on the hull? - Tahoe 23

I used two layers of 6mm (1/4") Okoume plywood on both my Gentry and Palm Beach 22 builds. It should also work on the Tahoe. That way everything on the hull will be the same thickness in the end. Obviously it won't bend and twist as easily as 1/8" but it worked for me. As you get towards the bow and...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

I have glued the first layer on both sides and have been working on the second. There are three planks on that layer. On the starboard side, I have glued one and fitted the other two. On the port side I have fitted the plank at the bow and am working on fine tuning the second and third plank. Each r...

Re: Florida Barrelback

John,,, I found a picture of the faired bow on my Palm Beach. It has a very similar bow profile to the BB. You will be sanding/planing a lot of wood off of the stem to get it fair. From my picture you can see how far back the chine meets the stem. Neel

Re: New member in Ivyland Pa

Roger... If you would like to come over some day, I would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have. I am in the middle of a build now that you could take a look at. It is a "cold molded" hull just like your BB. So send me a private message here on the forum and I will give you my phone...
