Re: FS 19 build

Hi Browndog been playing around with some weights of your FS19 and some props. Right now I'm looking at something in the 13-13.5 x 17-19 pitch 3 blade and a 13.25 x 16 or 17 4 blade. Everything will depend on the final weight you come up with. Top speeds will be in the mid to upper 40's. Ask if you ...

Yes it would be perfect on a FS17. Remedy up in CT has a 40 on his FS17 and feels it is perfect for it.

Re: NJ 1st build FS 14 with center console

A couple of things to think about. First is the weight which you mention. Your 40HP is 77lbs heavier than a new 20HP. To balance out the weight you have 77 extra lbs. sitting 7' behind the center of gravity or an equivalent of a weighted arm of 7' x 77lbs or 539lbs. You would need to move 539lbs for...

Hey bud run several 2x6's the length of the hull like bunks on a trailer. Maybe two on each side for as far forward as you can, that will work for most of the hull and give you something to walk on. Build rest of the cradle over them. The keel has enough fiberglass now that you can work along it. Tom

I agree with pee wee. What HP is your motor on your saw. If it is only a 1HP definitely get a 12GA extension cord. You can also go down to a 24 tooth blade to cut your 2x4's also. https://woodworker.com/8x22t-thin-kerf- ... archmode=2

Re: Cx25

I agree 3 coats and then a guide coat before sanding. This will let you see any highs or lows if you need to do any final filling of any lows.
