Re: Center Console Placement ...

Think about what you just typed as the LCG moves back you want to offset that by moving the console forward to offset that. This will keep it in the LCG in the center of the boat. At displacement speed there is very little difference in where the LCG is placed in a planeing hull as it is not really ...

Re: Adam needs a prop

I'm late to the discussion but agree a 6 pitch or less will work best. You can also reduce the diameter to 7" also and go with a 7 pitch. Every 1" in diameter is 2.5 inches in pitch. So it makes more sense to make to change diameter than pitch.

Re: Center Console Placement ...

TomTom to follow up on what Jacques is saying, that is for a light weight 90HP 2 stroke motor. Since I believe you have a heavier 4 stroke 115 or 125 HP motor, start at 44% forward from the transom. You will also be going faster than Jacques calculated speed of 25mph so add a percent for every 5 mph...

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Narfi, congrats, but Cambell's prepared soup? What a no, no. I lost 5 lbs. just getting rid of those. They are full of salt and calories and other things you don't need.

Re: FS-17 Again

Jeff there was one built shortly after the plans came out. I don't remember who built it. Check with Jacques on the max HP for a tiller steer, as it will be less than a console steer. Fuzz you beat me to it. :lol:

Re: Eric's C21

Eric, I am so glad the end of the tunnel is in sight for you. I finally got my hip replaced and am back home, from when I fell in November.

Well congrats and God Bless.
