Re: Cooling Issue

Another possibility is the key was sheared or missing on the impeller. Some impellers are keyed and some have a flat spot. The keyed impeller goes with V belt engines and the flat spot one goes with the engines with serpentine belts. I think.

Re: Cooling Issue

When you put the new impeller in, did you turn it in the direction of rotation as you inserted it into the pump housing? If not, it could be damaged.

Re: Riviera strut and rudder

You could also try Marysville Marine. They sell Crusader Marine engines and transmission packages. I purchased a new 5.7 liter Captains Choice with a velvet drive Liberty A down angle transmission. Package was a complete drop in setup.

Re: Chine Log and Shear Clamp length?

I use my rubber ruler and things are always the right size, just never fit.

The snap buttons look good. A lot of work, though.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Go to Aircraft Spruce and search on Tinnerman. There are some countersunk washers there that may work for you.

Re: Lumber question...(been a while!)

Often we laminate longer items like battens, sheers, chines. Staggered scarf joints work well when longer lumber is not available.

Re: Greetings from St. Simons

Welcome aboard! The BB is a great project. We have several guitar players in the forum and some guitar makers. Some of us will be bringing guitars to the next gathering held next year at Bluewater resort in Tennessee, last weekend in September.
