Neel,

WOT for me is also going to be just above idle. So when I get mine done, we can get together and I'll tow you around or you can tow me around and we'll just pass drinks back and forth! :lol: :lol:

Looks nice Neel. If you need help with the flip, I'll try to come down.

Thanks Bryan. It will be in June probably as I have to wait about 7 weeks for my strut to drill the shaft hole. I will let you know.

Geez, flipping the hull is so much over-rated.
Go to the tire store and get a pickup load of old tires. Place them, stack them, accordingly, and flip the darn hull.
When you get it balanced on its beam, you give it a nudge, and, Phloomphhh !!
Done !!

I routed a landing and drilled holes for the turn/skid fin. I have four coats of epoxy over the fiberglass and waiting for it to harden up a bit before I sand it with 80 grit for the bottom paint. I decided to go with Interlux Micron CSC Ablative, multi season antifouling paint as the boat will be used some in brackish and salt water. It doesn't give the super shine as other bottom paints do, but when I use it in Florida, I will need the antifouling protection. Still waiting for my strut so I can drill the shaft hole. Getting very antsy to flip her over....

Hey Neel,
Would you say a fin is mandatory on these inboard runabouts? I’m on the fence about installing the fin on Barrelback.

I am not sure how necessary a fin is. I didn't have one on my Gentry and it didn't make very sharp turns. It had a semi V bottom. The PB is very flat at the transom as is the BB. So I'm thinking a fin can't hurt. I know Roberta put a fin on her Torpedo and that hull has a slight V to it. So to answer your question.... I simply don't know. Maybe others will chime in. It was fairly inexpensive in the whole scheme of things, and easy to install. I'm glad I did it.... I think !!

I got the first coat of bottom paint on yesterday. I used Interlux Micron CSC. It will get three total coats

Looking good.

What is your sequence for finishing? You glassed up to the water line and are painting that. Then stain and epoxy coat the sides, and finally clear the sides? Any concern about the paints meeting at the waterline? Asking for a friend :roll:
