Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Now I understand the 12 inch rails. 30-36 rails make a lot of sense. So does making them really stout, the last thing you want is a life saving devise to give way and not do its job. I have some idea of dealing with cold water, last thing you want is to go into the water here at any time of the year.

Re: 23 ft Hartley Cabin boat repair/rebuild and hull extension

I have no idea what your plan is for deck height but I am wondering if you have room for taller stringers?
I am asking because if it were me I would install some taller stringers and carry them well out over the old stringers. The last thing you want is flex at the extension joint.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

That is looking good. You should be happy with that :wink:
I saw you talking about rails a couple days ago and said you might make them 1 foot tall. If it were me I would go higher as rails that low feel like more hazard than help.

Re: Painting aluminum

Why do you not want to leave it raw? Lots of 50 year old uncoated aluminium boats around here.

Re: Mako 254 rebuild

That sure is a nice looking hull. How tall are those stringers?

Re: Need some performance advice

I too think this sounds like you have hook. They way you are describing this it would act the same way with trim tabs set in the full down position. I do not think you have too much transom angle. If that was the case the boat would run faster and start raising the bow as you trimmed the motor out.

Re: C17 in New Zealand.

A guy can not have everything but having both the right tool and a good quality tool sure makes a difference.

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Not sure how much help this will be but I had similar problems with my Sintes 21. Either I made a mistake when building the hull 30 years age or it has some rocker built into it. Plus the way way I built it the hull is a little stern heavy. Anything over 25 and she would porpoise bad enough to toss ...
