So, given all the discussion on Outboard weights. Jacques, how do you feel a pair of 150 four strokes will affect the CS25 I'm building the closed transom with a bracket. My power will be 150 4 strokes which range in weight from 466 to 510lb each. Could you give recommendations as to how far forward the console and fuel tanks to should be moved to compensate for the weight of the engines?

Thanks

Capt H

I think it's ok now?? :doh: still a little knock (is that the word?) but I think it has to be like that, because it's looking pretty much the same as the other side, didn't do anything on the other side because when under the hull I saw I couldn't do anything it was pretty much straight from station to station.

Boomer the two secondhand 200's are 4 stroke to

I am out of the office and don't have my hydrostatic files with me but that pair of engines is borderline heavy.It should work but the trim will not be very nice.
The cockpit should still be self bailing but I must check that when I come back next week.
A 250 with a 6 to 10 HP kicker on bracket would be much better.

Thank's for your answer while you are on your vacation, I think I'm already make up my mind, but I'm still very interesting in your opinion so I will await that when you are back

:help: now what??? I wanted to start with the wide fabric this morning, after measuring there came up a question (again sorry :oops: )
My lamination schedule tells me to make a 152 mm overlap at the keel and above baseline, but with the fabric I have got in my kit this is impossible to do (if I put on the fabric lengthwise), at the bow there is no problem but at the stern if I make the overlap at the keel the fabric just reach the corner of the chine and the side panels. :doh:

Peter, you did it again, ask a new question in Power boats. :lol: You started a new subject. Remember one question per subject. You'll get the hang of it.
