Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

This is just a suggestion Bob..... I use West System and have found if you put on very thin coats later in the day as the temperature starts to drop, the results are much better.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

You might be overthinking this Carl..... Why not simply cut it out (just past the lines) with your bandsaw and then sand it down to the lines with your Rigid bench sander? That's what I would do.... I think !!

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Daryl,, I am really not an expert on gear box ratios, but many on the forum here are. I think they will be asking for the approximate horsepower, desired top speed, max rpm of the motor, finished weight and length of the boat, etc. I'm sure they will chime in here. Best of luck with your build...Do ...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Yesterday when I took the two pictures I posted, I took them in the as a portrait, and something changed them to landscape. This morning I took ano...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Carl... I have a Samsung Galaxy S8 android. I did have an S5 and it worked fine. I see many other photos here on the forum with the same problem. Maybe it could be fixed at Glen-L

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Back in PA and back at boat building. Why do the pictures post 90 degrees out of level? Is this something new?

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Thanks Bob.... I think I get it, but I've gotta quickly get to my "Thinking Chair" ….. I'm having a little trouble figuring out the come along, how it's attached, and what it is attached to. Also not clear on the strap shortening process and how it failed....

Re: Bob Brown’s Belle

Very nice Bob.... Would you consider making a drawing of the "flipping gantry"?? I can't quite figure out how it all works and it looks like it's the only way to flip a boat. Thanks,,, Neel

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom… You can mount a loud 12 volt horn under the deck near one of the cowl vents. I did that on the Gentry and it is plenty loud

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom…. Great workmanship. Seeing the finished product is definitely on my bucket list.....I am sure we will be seeing more raised cowls, racing stripes (I love them), and seamless decks on future builds. NICE JOB !!

Re: connect 18g wire to 16g

Bryan......I'm with Bill on this one... Use the 14-16 connectors. When I have done this, I strip enough off the 18 ga. wire so the tin wire can be bent over to make it thicker. Then after you put it all together and heat up the connector, both ends will seal up
