Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

You have some of the most beautiful places there are to sail to. You really must be proud of the work you did 20 years ago. My hat sure is off to you for your projects that you are doing and have done.

Re: Captain UB

Yup you might as well, Colemanfire will soon have a new prop and jwhitakeriii is well along with his, so you have both builds to follow. I want to see another LM18 build also. :wink:

Re: LM18 in Perry, GA

Very nice that motor is going to be a beast on your LM18. Just finished propping Colemanfire's and came up with a theoretical top speed of 29 mph with his 2 stroke 30HP motor. We will sees what he gets when he puts his new prop on. If you would like I can help you prop with a 4 blade to get the most...

Re: GF16 center seat question?

Moving the center seat forward changes where the frames are providing the strength to the hull. Having said that 6" should not be enough in a 16' boat to make a difference and you should be able to move it forward. I don't have my plans with me on vacation or I could better give you an idea.

Re: Narfi's FS17 - Build Thread

Narfi yes use a fuel/water filter. It is usually placed in the compartment that the fuel hose exits to the motor. One of the members showed one, not very long ago for about 60 bucks that would be fine for you. Sierra and Racor are both excellent brands.

Re: CS25 Adding side door

The inside of Peter's scuppers are at the deck which is about 3" or 7.5cm above the water line. I don't recall if he slanted them down or not but I don't think so. Can you give me the page of his build so I can refresh my memory? Your two 150HP Suzuki's are going to weigh over 1000lbs, way to much f...

Re: Conchfish 16 (HB Whipray) Build

Which one, did it have good cup and rake? Yes a 3 blade is a good place to start. Yes looked at my calculations and it shows between a 12 and 13 depending on the cup and rake. Did you talk at someone at Power Tech? They should have given you some good info. They do have a 3 blade with some good spec...
