Re: Curacao CS 25

Congrats, Peter! What a great video! Now the rewards for theyears of work and all of the attention to detail - I'll bet you're spending a lot of time at the ramp explaining your boat!

Re: Harmony HMD19 started

I have about 10 gallons of water forward; just right for most loads. Fill your tanks and then you'll see! :)

Re: Harmony HMD19 started

You'll have plenty of room and capacity for your gear and supplies! I need to order the sink and pump for MM21 pretty soon; right now finances are tight and project is stalled. Sound's like you've already got all the expensive stuff!

Re: Harmony HMD19 started

If I remember, without pulling my plans, there is room for a 10 gallon triangular shaped water tank. I skipped the water tank and had to fill that area of the hull with water bottles for ballast. With the same motor, you'll be happier with a bigger water tank if you haven't already committed to the ...

20" (long) shaft" I have the 25" x=long on mine, and ended up raising the transom 2" it was down so low...I think that will work better!

Re: HMD19 Motor

I've been ocean cruising for years in mine with a 9.9 Prokicker. I had posted rpms and speeds at one time, you'd have to search. Bottom line, you've maxed speed way before you max RPM with the 9.9; after that you burn more gas, make more noise, and dig a hole in the water for the transom to sink int...

Re: Guam MM21

No pics, been sick, cutting and fitting the cabin panels but need to move the whole thing out of the carport for the room to glue them up...haven't quite figured out the logistics of where the HMD goes when I move the new hull. It'll happen sometime this year, I haven't forgotten it but lately it's ...
