Re: Transducers

Fallguy I just saw this as I have not been checking the Forum often due to my fall. Why do you not mount the side shoot transducer on the end of a lifting post behind the beaching hull.

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....

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...
