Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks for the kind words Jim, Matt, and Bryan. The transom is 3/4" plywood for the main skin, overlaid with 1/4" hardwood veneer. But the center section is an additional 3/4" plywood. There's also the hardwood frame which is gusseted. The knee of course and then the motorwell. All of this I hope wi...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Finally I have something to show and talk about. Between work, waiting on small glue ups and just experimentation it's been taking quite awhile to get the motorwell close. In the picture I'm inly lacking two lids for the side compartments and then everything has to be put together. Right now its hel...

Re: Another Vera Cruise build

Looks familiar Nick! :D :D What are your plans for the anchor well access. I finally settled on a small hatch up forward, but considered all sorts of crazy ideas. Mine has a small storage space below the anchor well which is accessed from the V berth. But the anchor well is only accessible form the ...

Re: Atlantic Skiff build

Looking great Weller. I can certain relate to the amount of time in the build. You're taking the same attitude I'm trying to take. It'll be nine for me next summer. Love the brightwork. I so much want to get something final finished. Everything looks like a construction zone. Ah well , like you said...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

:D Maybe a good spot to have life jacket or boat bumper locker.Or hold pool noodles :D Yes, I am sure that it will likely end up being some sort of storage. I decided a couple of years ago that trying to get everything done before the launch was a losing proposition, for a variety of reasons. First...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

I'm starting now on the structure for the starboard motorwell compartment. I'm doing minimal work there for now since I don't really have a use for this compartment yet. I want to get the top pieces for the motorwell made and then I am going to dis-assemble everything and start getting the underfloo...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Beeeeeeeeeeeeeautilful Matt! Nice choices for the colors and the varnish really makes it pop. It sounds like you're making good use of the new space now.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Nice nice work on the seating arrangements. I would say that cupholders are a must. You'll regret not putting them in. So no room in the side armrests? Perhaps the foldout kind although they may not right in such a beautiful interior. I too am trying to figure out what to do about the battery switch...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

A little more progress on the port motorwell compartment. The upper section will contain the fuel line coming from the fuel tank and I will be building in a ice chest here as well. The lower compartment shows how the batteries fit. There's enough room above them to take off the lids of the boxes. I ...

Well you did a great job matching the tank up to the stern area.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Hey Carl - Is it too late to shorten the fore-cabin? After all, you will use the boat for many years and 3 extra feet in the cockpit would be very nice. It might be quicker and easier to make the change than you think at first blush. Or not. Just a thought. Cheers, Doug Well it could e done, but it...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Ever wish you built longer? Yes, very much so. But it was never an option for me. The boat just clears the garage door and back wall and there is no room to turn it diagonal. And actually, my initial choice was to have been a Sea Knight (17 foot) but I took a chance that I could squeeze the Vera Cr...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Everything is coming together Jim. I understand the battery incident. I've been tempted many times to buy things ahead of time. I have quite a few smaller parts that I probably won't use. So far I've managed to avoid spending big money on something I didn't need yet, but not for a lack of trying :) ...

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Nice work Tom, I'm curious because I never noticed it before, is the white item in the back of the boat a custom fuel tank. It looks tailor made for the boat. I agree with your sentiment about the pourable foam. Too many horror stories about it exceeding the boundaries of the area its added to. I th...
