Re: How much space between center console and gunwales

Yep the 5 gallon test used to be the standard. But then we started adding rod carriers and other things. Guys have gotten bigger. :lol:

Re: ST21 question for Jacques

For future reference, if anybody wants to build ST21 with a 1.5:1 transmission and a 10" diameter x 12" pitch propeller, RL Marine located in Brisbane, Australia can make one for you. I received mine in the post today. :D http://gallery.bateau2.com/albums/userpics/87242/normal_10_x_12_RH_propeller....

Re: Help me pick a boat, please!

The V12 is a pretty boat. Check to see what the displacement at DWL is to make sure you won't out grow it before you are ready to build one of the 19 footers. Just a suggestion.

Re: GV15 weight

That weight will be the hull only. I calculated the plywood using Okume and it comes out at just over 500lbs. Then you have to add in the fiberglass and epoxy. This will add another 6 gallons of epoxy, 22 yards of fiberglass cloth and about 90 yards of fiberglass tape.

You don't need 3/4" for the wheel and throttle. 3/8" okume is some solid stuff.
Especially with fiberglass on both sides. :D

Re: Balancing Design Layout

You have three theoretical points you are dealing with. 1st is CG = theoretical point the boat weight acts through. COB= center of buoyancy which is point the buoyancy of the boat acts at rest. Then the last is COL=center of lift which is the point the lift from moving acts through. Ideally the all...

Re: Wouter's PH18 Namibia

Nice fishing Wouter. I also noticed getting caught up on what you had been up to that you were having prop problems. I did a rough calculation for you based on your PH18 leaving the dock weighing 2300 lbs. all in, 2 men, fuel, gear and all wiring and electrical and mechanical gear, plus that nice Su...
