Re: FS14LS+10% Scupper Design

I'd glue in some fibreglass tubes (tape over a pool noodle) and use layflat hose or wetsuit material scuppers. Rib style. The flappers kind of work, but you will be getting backflow.

Re: GV10 Stop and Start Project

Looks good. Simple, functional and tough the way a kiwi boat should. How much buoyancy room did you put in it?

Re: DE 23 Build - NZ

Some of the frame measurements are at the front of the frame, others the back. That sometimes accounts for 9mm here and there. On your diagram I can see that the measurement from bow of F to stern of G is 806mm. Pays to double check all this. Also check that the frames are vertical. I didn't stress ...

Re: Panga 20 Build

Maybe it's just the camera magic, but that looks perfect already.

Re: GV10 Stop and Start Project

Interesting build that has mostly convinced me I am not smart enough to build with Aluminium. Ply and epoxy is more work but easier for me to manage. I have just had my trailer sand blasted and it is currently getting dipped. Did you consider that for the jetboat trailer? It looks in need of a littl...

Re: C17 in New Zealand.

Took the boat trailer to the galvaniser today. Actually I took it yesterday then took it back to grind out a bullock nut :x Got the frame off and on a hire trailer with help from the kids. Charge is by the kilo works out to a little less than $1US a pound. I’m only doing the frame, rollers will be n...

Re: OD18 - NH

What about high on the console? I'd want them as far from salt spray as I can get them, sealed or not.

Good to see you are still working on this boat; I haven't checked it in a while.

Re: Panga 20 Build

That looks nice but a lot of work. A simple hole drilled and sealed with epoxy would have worked as well imo.

Re: Evinrude to discontinue outboard engines

Well it could be worse, at least BRP is still in business and making parts. In my view, if working well they are the best engine out there. But reliability trumps all, and E-tec does not have the reputation of Yamaha 2 strokes. You may want to consider adding some TCW3 oil to the tank at 200:1. The ...

Re: Evinrude to discontinue outboard engines

So you have more powerful, more economical engines: Is it just the fact that they have been discontinued that makes it annoying? The steering issues seems fairly minor, and easy to fix? I have an E-tec on my donor boat. I am still waiting to get the trailer back from being re-galved but I expect it ...
