Hey Peter, Evinrude just announced a HO 15HP motor. Be perfect for you as a trolling motor. Lots of amps to keep the battery charged also. Only problem is it weighs 177 pounds vs 135 for the heaviest of the other 15HP motors. :doh: I think thats 81KG vs 61 KG.

Thought I'd give you a heads up. :D

Nice! :)

Yep... we need a good lookin' live (modestly clothed :roll: ) body in there for scale (no Photoshop allowed). :P

Did you epoxy down that access plate for the potable water?

Tom thanks for remembering that! Image I really appreciate it, are there already some publications on the web about that Evinrude motor?

KS8 I taped the plate frame and pushed it in the thickened epoxy that way I get a tight fit and the wood is also sufficient covered with epoxy (under and sides of frame), when dry I took it out and took the tape of still have to screw it down.

Well seems I'm creating a battle tank she becomes stiffer and stiffer, I wonder how she is when the frames and that stiffener pipe and/or shelf is in, like a rock I guess. 8)

Finished glassing the sides and double taped the sole to the sides at that point (sole level) there are six layers of glass and a fillet 8O

Grinded down a putty knife to create a somewhat beefier fillet as normal not to make it stronger but just because I think at sole level it looks nicer, normal I use the black mixing sticks

Peter it's on Evinrude's site. It was on the home page when I went to there site today, down in the lower left. If it's not there it's in the High Output section of the engines.

Same line of thinking Peter, that is what I used in my TW28.. in most areas where I felt more comfortable at fillets with it...
