Re: Maritime Malahini

Also cool to see these saves of something that scares the pants off of you. Good recovery. Planking looks like it went down well. I remember those days.

Re: Matt's Geronimo

It's tricky, but you seem to have a handle on it Matt. Looking good so far. I know how you feel about this. My front windows took me nearly two months.

Re: New Member - Cumberland, Maine

Perhaps only cut the notches partway to set their positions and then when you get to the point of adding the battens, get in there and set the angles as needed.

Re: New Member

I agree, another Torpedo would be great. Roberta's build is definitely the go to thread for this.

Re: Norwegian Barrelback 20'

Welcome back Thomas. Glad to see this didn't end up as an unfinished project. You've got a lot done so keep with it. It'll be worth it in the end.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Roberta, I already purchased my setup a few years ago, but wasn't aware of this option. Useful info and Bryan, you should check into that.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Carl, any pictures of that? I am planning on doing the same with my hydraulic helm, but haven't quite figured it out yet. Bryan, I don't have any good pictures yet. I'll try to get some soon. Its a bit tight quartered but I should be able to get something that makes it clearer what I did. I have to...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Gradually getting the helm upper cabinet put together. I have a hydraulic steering setup for my boat and I wanted to set the pump back into the dash some so it doesn't stick out so far. That took some head scratching and trial and error to get fitted. It's basically a backing plate mounted inside th...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Yes, I had a lot of trouble putting the clear coat on my transom back in June of 2016. To hot and I am going to have to go back and sand it down when the time comes to finish the exterior.

Re: Florida Barrelback

Nice work on the build so far John. I think the Barrelback's chine looks to be an easier fit than my Vera Cruise was. I used the steaming method from the Tips From A Shipwright YouTube channel. Using plastic bagging. Worked like a champ.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Looks like the same bilge hose I have. Mine is going to be fun getting it into position. That stuff is very stiff.

Re: Michigan Squirt Build

Good fix on the motor Jimmy. I guess that kind of thing just goes hand in hand with these older motors. I remember my old 68 Mercury Cougar was always needing points adjustment and lots of other little things. Annoying yes, but part of the package.

Re: New Member - Cumberland, Maine

Welcome to the forum. Look at the side view in your plans to try an gauge whether or not the keel and battens intersect the transom at an angle ot not. Cutting the transom notches ahead of the game is a personal choice I believe. I was unsure about this as well and it turned out that the angles were...

Re: Matt's Geronimo

Nice straightforward fix Matt. Why companies make these things so cheap is really a shame.
