Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

If it’s too loud I’ll add mufflers later.

Re: Major problem applying sides

Looks fine, you’re 1/2 way there, keep fairing. If the sheer starts to get uncomfortably thin from all the fairing then glue a strip on the inside of the sheer.

Re: Major problem applying sides

Shoot us a picture of what you've got going on there. It sounds pretty typical of the challenges at the bow.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Forget what I said about a 17” prop, I didn’t connect the dots that a “command thrust” engine had a 2.33 gear ratio. To put in car terms for my brain, That’s like going from a 3.23 rear end to 4.10 gears. It will have a great hole shot with a 17” prop.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I’d start with a 13.25 x 15 pitch. That 60hp will struggle to turn a 17 pitch.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

Beautiful, wow.
When you get the motor mounted you’ll have a better idea where your tongue weight is. I was a little light on my Malahini tongue and had to move the winch tower forward to get 180lbs on the tongue.
What engine are you going with?

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Hooked up a battery and a quick ignition switch and she fired right up. Short YouTube video below.
