Re: Inland waters and Great Lakes fishing boat

Fuzz I also mentioned I believe that they were made for different wave types, and that each are excellent for what they are designed for. The C21 for areas that get short choppy waves and the Abaco for long rolling waves. Topwater I have been on an Abaco style boat in the Bahama's and it was a dream...

Re: FS 19 build

Great when your ready do a test of the prop and see how she preforms compared to what I calculated. Run the boat up in 1000 rpm increments until you hit max rpms. If you hit 6300 then you may need to go up a prop size.

Regards

Re: Veneering

I would think so and after epoxying the very best clear coat like, EMC. You will also need to check that the outside layer of fiberglass is not 12oz biax and needed for structural reasons. You might be able to do two layers inside. I'm away from the house so don't have my plans to check for you. Tom

Re: C21 Questions for Jacques

I'm looking pretty close at the C21 for a build to begin next spring. (got other debt I need to pay off first) I would likely be running a pilothouse and looking at the atlas hyd. jack plate. That would also, I believe, allow for a full transom and therefore a baitwell/livewell in front of the engi...

Re: Eric's C21

Eric that was a lot of meat. Hope you are escaping all the rain down that way. Temps have dropped to high 80's, can now work on the cabin. Looking forward to more work on the C21.

Your bud

Re: Thinking out loud

The motor doesn't have to go down into the motor well but it is a strength thing for the boat and is as such called so. It just provides strength from the transom to the next frame forward. Don't worry it is just a nomenclature thing for boats.. I would still like to know what the depth is from the ...

Re: Thinking out loud

Sure you have a motor well it is where you have the clamps on it, holding it to the stringers. It is small but is still a motor well. What is the depth from the top where the clamps are to the bottom.

Re: C21 Questions for Jacques

A lot depend on what you are going to do. Are you going to make a live well or bait well in the back. Then you need to account for the weight of the water in each of them. Personally I like to move the helm forward 6-10" instead of the gas tank as the weight of the gas tank varies and the weight of ...
