Re: PH18 Build in North Dallas (PH20)

Post by flyfishingmonk »

I upgraded my band saw this week, and did some work on the speakers for the center console. The upgrade was for the guides, and the work was to make something for the speakers to be mounted into. I angled the blocks to give more meat for the screws to mount into. The blocks follow the angle of the sub woofer speaker cone .

For the mid size speakers I made little round over blocks since they can be seen from the inside of the center console.

The blue block picture is of the anchor box. I am adding a red bungee cord to keep it in place, specifically thinking through the hooks the cord will have and where the cord will attach. Thinking through stuff like this is really a lot of fun, how each detail works out in the end.

The blind nuts have been epoxied into place. They are for the battery hold downs. I pulled them down tight with large washers and the boltsI plan to use on the batteries.

The pic of the fillet is on the panel that hides the fuel tank. It is more to make things easy to clean up than anything else.

And Dougster - found one of the flexi things at Rockler, made by Makita. Looks to very similar so I took a pic for you.

And then one picture of what I think is the last board I will purchase for the boat, some dimensional mahogany, along with a cool picture I received from a client.

Thanks for the compliment. It seems to becoming together well enough.

Here are some pics of the tube I made to span the fuel tank panels. This is what will hold the fuel line as it passes through the life jacket compartment. I purchased rubber grommets I found online, and then had to use my lathe to bevel the coupling so it would be easier to install. I should have beveled the couplers before I glued them into place, but did not know it would be that challenging to get them into the grommets. I like how it turned out. Messing with custom stuff is so a lot of fun. The notch in the cleat is so the fuel tank will slide into place when installed. It had to be shaven off some for the top of the tank not to rub.

The last two pics shows the completion of the anchor box, with the anchor and rope. The anchor is held in place with yoga blocks, and will be bolted into the boat. Then a bungee will keep the anchor from coming up out of the foam. The foam itself keeps it held in place very tight, but the bungee will be for good measure. "Belt and suspenders" is what my dad likes to say.

Casey,
Your build is looking great. Can't wait to see her in the water. Question, you mentioned selling your jack plate in a previous post. After splashing my OD16, I'm going to be in the market for one. If you want to sell it, send me the details (make, model, $, @ (stoeckel.jim@gmail.com)), maybe I can help a brother out.
