Re: Barrelback 19 planing

You should be up also at 18mph. That engine doesn't make 120hp either, it is more realistic about 90. Even at a lower hp expe...

Re: San Francisco Bay

I don't know a darn thing about SF bay, but, I do know somewhat about taking smaller-ish boats out into bigger water. ......you pick your days. ....you pick days of calm wind and little chance of afternoon storms.

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

Looks like that 1to1 tranny is coming out of the Supra! It has a nice prop shaft, strut and flange on it also. Shaft may not be the correct length of course. Glad I purchased the Supra now! Let me get it out and I will get back to you guys...thanks again. There you go !!! I been waiting for that......
