Re: C17 design and building questions

You could scale the console down 10% then raise it to the level you like. You can use that console plan and change all the dimensions: make it wider or narrower, taller or shorter, longer etc. I don't think the C19 console is too large for that boat. I would check the height: I did design it to fit ...

Re: DE 24 ish

OK, it's 10" then. There must be a reason why I show 10", maybe to have enough room to build some storage in there.

Re: DE 24 ish

Is that not on the plans? I think I show a closed transom layout for a bracket. The last bulkhead is at 8" from the transom.
Check your drawings, if you don't find it, post again and I"ll send a PDF copy.

Re: Coach's SC-16 in MA

It will work but why?
BTW, you can use the real transom at this stage, not need to make a particle board transom.

Feel free to play with the hull shape but keep in mind that changes have a snowball effect. in this case, you bottom panels will be different.

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

There are pros and cons for runners, it depends on the type of boat. On vee shaped planing hulls, they become strakes and ya help but on flat bottom hull, I don't always like them.

Re: OB 15

One of my neighbors built an OB15 and put a 50 on it. He had the engine in his garage. I tested another one with a 30 and it had more than enough power to my taste.

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

Remember the previous questions about runners: you can't altogether have runners lined up with the stringers and the bunks just under the runners. I would give priority to the trailer bunks and move the runners. Boats suffer more on the trailer than in the water, in most cases.

Re: Looking for advice

I designed that Pursuit but left the company around 1994. I don't know what changes they made in the building and materials but for the ones I specified, I would check: - transom and stringers - fuel tank corrosion. The fuel tanks were foamed in which was standard procedure but later, many builders ...
