Re: COVID Protocol

I don't think we are going to have a problem. We just need to respect each other's position and be as careful and caring as possible.

Re: Rebuilding the trailer from under the boat

It's a nice setup. Not Rube at all. We used a lot of vacuum setups to evacuate gas circuit breakers. Some really big, some smaller and more simple than yours. What ever it takes.

Re: Rebuilding the trailer from under the boat

I used vacuum to bleed brakes on my airplanes. Way better than pumping pedals. I had a similar setup but manual vacuum pump.

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

The key is being fair and symmetrical. As I put together the framing on the build form, I would use levels and wood to check that the boat set points were correct and adjusted early before things got too far out of wack. It worked. If I can do it, anyone worth their salt can. Good luck. I would like...

Re: Bilge blower hose clips

Adel clamps are also called cushioned loop clamps. Aircraft Spruce sells them to at least 3-1/8" tube size. Searching for them I've seen them as big as 8". I used them in the Torpedo and on duct on my airplanes. I've seen plastic versions, but they seem to be a bit fragile. The good ones are stainle...

Re: COVID Protocol

Rich and I are protected. We will not mask and won't ask anyone else to either. I think it is up to individuals to protect themselves and follow any prudent guidelines.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Good find and glad you have this resolved. Most dual battery systems are for people needing the extra power. Us day cruisers generally don't need it.

Re: Limbers

You're welcome. There's a lot to do and think about and sometimes things get lost in the shuffle. Always good to ask.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Do you really need an additional house battery for a Barrel Back? Are you planning on running electrical equipment with the engine off for extended periods? That battery will provide a lot of power on it's own.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

I have that Odyssey battery in the Torpedo. I replaced it this year after 6 years of service. Try Battery Mart for a decent price. $335.00. Odyssey makes a nice mount for it.

Re: Limbers

Here is a picture and explanation of limbers in wooden boats. Notice that the ends of the battens were reinforced with additional wood to retain the strength where the limbers were cut. Wood should be added and bridge the limber. This is on page 153 of the "Boatbuilding with Plywood" Book by Glen L....
