Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Matt, The decision was made to mount the fuel tank above deck for a couple of reasons. Primarily because the there really isn't enough space below the floors unless I spent big money on a custom aluminum design. I considered shallow tanks mounted on both sides of the keel, but everyone I talk to abo...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Roberta, Steve, and Bryan. It's starting to get more real now that I am closing in on finishing the major parts of the construction. Still much to do and I suspect my launch will slip next year. But I am doing what I can to get done and putting off many items until later, but all the while tr...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Jim, Here are some links. It seems I saw another at some point, but I cannot find it. However, all of these are some sort of plastic or fiberglass. https://www.marineflooring.net/ https://www.reliatex.com/search-result/?_sfm_new_material=Marine%20Flooring https://www.sailrite.com/Fabrics/Marine-Fabr...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well progress is continuing, albeit at a bit slower pace because I'm doing quite a bit of epoxy work at the moment. The fuel tank facade cabinet is underway now and I just put on two of the three hardwood edges. I'll clean those up tomorrow and add the third one. Then a few pieces on the inside to h...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I've used Poxy Shield for years as the structural adhesive, thickened with silica. I'm using it to help Glen L Marine. But for encapsulation I switched to Silvertip Epoxy because of it's longer pot life and non blushing finish. It is also completely clear rather than yellowish.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I can't remember the brand name, but I know several retailers offer it. It's basically a recycled plastic woven into a carpet like material. Supposedly just as soft as carpet but drains and dries very quickly. It's also paintable (with the right paint) so you could customize it. I'm considering this...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Sounds like it was a blast Matt. I was just telling my wife to remember all the days I was out in this heat sanding and doing other nasty stuff when we finally get ours out on a lake.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Shifter looks great Matt. That heat was a killer wasn't it? I had to do major lawn work during that time as well because I was not smart enough to do it earlier in the week before it started getting hotter. I'm struggling with what to do about my control right now. I like the way yours fits right in...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Jim, I know what you mean about the heat. It's been over a hundred several days in a row here. Starting to cool down a bit, only 94 today. As for veneering the parts, they can be vacuum bagged without a form as long as the parts are bagged properly so that the bag can conform to the shape and...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Billy and Jim, Progress continues. It's gotten a lot hotter so work sessions tend to be an hour or less before retreating into the house for awhile. I've nearly completed the fuel tank box. It's been assembled and painted. Only waiting on a couple of small parts to finish it. The box has been...

Re: Virginia Barrel

For encapsulation, also be mindful of the amine blush from poxy shield. This needs to be washed off before sanding or bonding after the previous coat has cured. It's waxy feeling but washes off readily with warm soapy water. Alternatively, you can buy non blushing epoxy for encapsulation.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Coming along real nice Jim. Don't worry about the less than perfect work. We all have that I believe. And I totally understand the feeling of getting stuck while trying to figure out what to commit to next. I've been through more of those than I care to admit.
