Re: Build a Gantry?

Here's some inspiration if you decide to build a gantry ... We designed and built a portable gantry to move the boat from its cradle to the trailer. The 6" wide x 12' long I-beam is supported by jackposts which adjust from 7' to 9' in height. The 3" C-channel base is supported by 8" s...

The following link might be of interest : Belle Isle - Stern Drive? If the hull you're starting with was designed for a centrally mounted inline inboard, you'll have to add a jackshaft extension kit to maintain the original hull's balance.

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

You may leave the beam as is but stretch the boat to accomodate a staggered engine configuration. The engines could mount to remote v-drives located just behind the cockpit. One engine would be closely coupled while the other engine would be coupled by a torque tube which parallels the first engine ...

Re: Dream Builder

What does this number mean exactly? As in, the stern will sit 4 inches lower? 1) Add the weights of all objects. Add the weight moments. 2) Divide the total moment by the total weight. This is the distance from the datum to the center of gravity. Here are some links to augment Bill's post : → For a...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Looking good, Denon ! Epoxy doesn't self-level like paint. Roller application creates a heavy film which tends to mottle and requires a lot of sanding to level out the surface. Have you tried 'tipping' the rolled epoxy with a foam roller ? Follow the link in this post for more info : • Re: Help! air...

Re: pvc drain tubes

Epoxies don't adhere well to many plastics because these surfaces are too smooth to allow a mechanical bond. One of the Gougeon Brothers' User Guides recommends cleaning the pipe with the correct cleaner for that type of pipe and applying a thin coating of ABS/PVC cement. Once the cement has complet...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Just an idea to work around the bleeding problem. It might be simpler to bond a 3/4" wide x 1/4" thick ash strip with 1/8" rounded-over edges to your existing ash strips. The deck would be stained and epoxied as usual. The ash 'cover' strips could be finished off the boat and epoxied ...
