Re: Highschool Riviera Build Project

I wonder if my engine temps will get lower, once it is in the water since there will be more water moving through the system than our garden hose can provide. Here's how to increase your water supply : http://www.chelseacoachworks.com/images/hot_rod/hot_rod_startup_20140528.jpg Click the image and ...

Re: Gas Fuel Filters

You're making great progress on your boat ! Here are some inks to marine-rated fuel filters and heads. Look for the High Volume filter heads with 1/2" NPT Inlet/Outlet ports for performance marine engines. http://www.cpperformance.com/images/Product/large/700-24940.JPG GLM 28 Micron Water Separating...

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

Good call, Ken ! Tricky little spreadsheet estimates SHP as BHP * .097. This is why I said that Gerr doesn't need boat length or weight to do this. Good enough if all you want is an estimate. True SHP requires Desired Speed (knots), Crouch's Constant and Weight. SHP = BHP * 0.97 SHP required for giv...

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

The above chart doesn't input his Barrelback information to relate it to a reduction gear, or not. The first step to select the engine, gearing and propeller for your boat is to determine optimum propeller diameter. Gerr doesn't need boat length or weight to do this. The diameter check ensures that...

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

I agree with Ken that most Glen-L designs are light enough that a reduction gear is not required. The first step to select the engine, gearing and propeller for your boat is to determine optimum propeller diameter. The following Excel spreadsheet uses the Diameter-HP-RPM Formula from Dave Gerr's Pro...

Re: Support Knowledge Base - Automotive to marine conversion

What does is take to convert an automotive engine to use in a boat? Is it cheaper to find a marine engine and rebuild it? We've compiled marine conversion info in this post. You can save some money if you can find a used marine engine in running condition. We usually opt to rebuild from a good used...
