Re: C17 design and building questions

There is roughly 30cm difference in the max beam of the two boats. So I would think that the console from the C19 would fit the C17 without any changes. Just to be sure I would scale the console in cardboard.

Re: C17 here we come ready or not

Why the CX19 you will need at least a 115 or 135HP motor on her. A plain jane C19 with a 115 reached barely the low 40's. With the extra weight on the front you will probably will need trim tabs.

Re: Eric's C21

OQ I am familiar with Eric's smoker. The wires are there for a purpose auger control mainly and fire control. There is only a temperature gauge on the hood so you don't really know what is going on inside the smoker. Thus the need for a two step thermometer.
