Re: Mist Miss - Desert Build

Agreed. And depending upon your ability to see the hull shape, the fairing is going to take time as well. If you try to build on a time line, you are going to hate it after awhile (sort of like working at that point). Set goals yes, but mostly just consistently work on it .

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I am just fascinated seeing thee cold molded process progress. This really seems like the ideal way to plank a boat. Strong and light. Looking great Lee.

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Cool Jim.

I fret so much with the design aspects of my build. My artistic skills are limited so I always worry about balance and aesthetics. You guys make it look easy!

Re: Tahoe 23

I feel for you Tony on the heat considerations. We have similar climate here in Austin with the sun being brutal in July and August. As much I like the look of wooden decks, I am going with painted decks for my cruiser. What I am amazed by is the variety of designs all these wooden boats are given. ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Well I was going to wait a little longer before posting a shot of the helm cabinet but I am at a point where I have to do some assembly work of the remote throttle so I can determine just how wide the throttle mounting surface has to be. That will determine where the other wall of the upper cabinet ...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Man oh man, this is going to be different sort of beasty than the Gentry. Neel, this is so cool. I can't wait to see this planking progress move forward. And then some day, a beautiful 22 foot long wooden speedboat. Magnificent, just magnificent.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Bryan Sarnian, and Neel. I'm glad to be able to contribute to the forum. As for patience, well it's more stubbornness than patience. I just keep dragging myself out there day after day and get something done. Some days are not so much fun, other days are. Neel, believe it or not it will be 8 ...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Thanks Lee, I ordered my instruments this morning, so another pick check off for the list. I'm going with analogue white face instruments which I feel will look great on this boat. I need these to insure that I get the helm instrument cluster built right. Probably should have ordered them sooner, bu...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

I am getting close to finishing the first layer of planking on the starboard side. I crawled under the boat to double check my center line measurements using the keel as a reference and I got a good look of the inside of the boat. That was kind of cool to see. A little nugget of inspiration that he...

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

The fuel tank facade cabinet is mostly finished with the major construction. I'll need to add some internal fittings to ensure it stays put when installed and I need to finish the exterior and encapsulate the interior. I'll get to that eventually. I visited a Marine shop yesterday in the local area ...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Your welcome Jim. Just be sure to do some research on them because I've only done a small amount. There isn't anything I saw that concerned me, but best to check it out for yourself.
