A drive-by-wire control? Who knew. Replaces the throttle position sensor on the engine, just need a shift cable?

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

As far as the throttle cable, I've seen it routed to the carb (or throttle position sensor on your fuel injected engine) from the front or looped under/around the engine and fed from the back. It seemed to be at the boat builder's discretion which was used. Your setup really could be what you want b...

Re: New Zip from MN (and NW WI)

Welcome! And nicely done, too. And what log home isn't complete until it has a yellow model float plane hanging from the overhead? Good luck and keep posting photos!

Re: Pee Wee in Maine

One thing to consider about the septic system in Maine is that when you replace one near a lake there are extra requirements to protect the lake. You'll need to have the system engineered for your particular lot and location. The cottage two doors over from us on Mousam Lake had burned two summers a...

Re: modified malahini

I don't think the strakes will cause cavitation at the prop if your outboard is set with the cavitation plate even with the keel. I have a Penn Yan boat with a vee hull similar to yours, that's how it's been set up and in 47 years it's worked great. I see two possibilities: (1) You could space the t...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Hi Bryan! The Key Largo and it's siblings the Belle Isle and Barrelback are cold molded in three 1/8" layers in the sides instead of a single layer of 1/4" plywood like our Malahinis. Your veneer is just fine without screws through it if you've already screwed on the plywood first. Think o...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Always better to screw into the chines instead of the bottom planking. The screws will get a more secure, better bite into the long grain of the chines. Screwing into the bottom planking is going into the plywood edge grain, which risks prying apart the laminations in the plywood or between the laye...
