CV16 Caravelle ks8 - more photos of caprails around Cuddy

Post by ks8 »

I've added a few more CuddyTop Caprail (railcap?) pictures to the gallery. More to follow. I hope the 4x layout isn't making each photo too small. I'm trying to minimize the total number of pictures while giving the most points of view.

These pics were spring 2004. If you want a better rez single picture of any of these, list the pic number and the blue circle number and I'll upload a larger version.

Sincerely,
ks

Though it did not matter much up front, they add much stiffness to the cockpit area, give a good grip, add a little freeboard, and still may end up being bright finished even though only doug fir. And, they are Practice for the next project. I had to repair the roof on the tent after the big snowfall. The first 3 x 4 inch hole opened up, but the *cathedral* kept snow out of the boat. Soon there will be more duct tape than tent... yet it has held up, more or less, 4 years in Northeast weather... not bad.

After looking in there, .... I've got to finish this this year. The bay is icing up again... I'll have to look into that mod for ice runners. 8)

Man that looks good! I should hope you're thinking about finishing atleast some of it bright.

:doh: I was so eager to look at the photos that I missed this first read through. Sure was confused when I couldn't locate that sweet console you built (this summer?) in those pics.

Cheers,
A.

Thanks for the encouragement guys...

I flip flop on the bright finish every other week. I didn't do all the scarfs with color matched filler. Consequently, some shout at you. I may not permanently decide until I'm mixing paint. They are not teak or mahoghany, but they do not look bad for humble doug fir.

How goes things in the hayloft Andrew?

sincerely,
ks

What kind of hardware are you using for hatches? I looks like I see recessed hardware......

I am trying to figure out what my options are for hardware (if I use any) for my seat/hatch covers. I think I can get recessed pulls, but I dont want hinges above the plane of the seat/hatch cover..

Don't let KS be humble he hand crafted his hatches.

Hello KS,

Just found your newest pictures at the builders gallery but had a hard time finding this thread ... It seems you now consider your Caravelle a "small boat" :D ...

As always it's looking good. Congratulations.

Best regards.
JG

Hello KS

Am I to understand that you are building inside a tent? If so have you found it dry enough to protect your project?

Your pictures look great - nice craftmanship.
