Re: Monte Carlo coverboards

coverboard1.jpg coverboard joint 2.jpg My forward most coverboard was over 16" wide. It allowed me to only have 5 coverboard pieces on each side, in the pic below you can see the "z" shaped joints in the rear end and possibly if you zoom way in you can see the first coverboard piece went all the wa...

exhaust hose source

Hey Folks,
I've started my search for exhaust hoses. It seems I need about 7 ft per side of 3.5 in hose.

I like the vetus stuff but cant seem to find a source that sells less than a role of 66"! can anyone help a guy out on a source that sells by the foot?

Thanks and hope you are all well!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

psychobilly,
I cleaned it all up 3 years ago, and within a week it looked just the same, now I only clean at critical points of varnishing!

The other excuse could be, I have successfully overcome ADD and Anorexia!


How's Australia (I'm jealous)?

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

JimmyY,
I found that with my plug cutter, the longer the plug, the more it tapered and fit in the hole better.

Cutting them off with a vibrator saw is only about 2 seconds each and it doesnt matter how long they are!

Hercdrvr, Thanks!

heater hose

hey Guys,
I am re routing my coolant overflow tank to the back of the motor. I need to cut and put in 2 90 deg fittings. Any suggestion for 90 deg barbed hose fittings?

I've not found a supply yet. Considerations are brass or stainless I suppose.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Billy, I've got more research to do on the prop but he could provide that as well. Its discount inboard marine which is where I got my motor too.

Thanks again for your help!

I calculated my shaft length to be 45 3/4" long with the following beyond the strut (1" diameter shaft): -standard SAE taper 2 3/4" -standard SAE beyond the taper 1 3/4" (leaves room for thre...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

I suppose I will give him the dimensions he wants, if its short I can add a spacer between tranny and prop couplings.

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Ken, I originally gave him the tranny to strut, but I had already calculated the rest based off standard SAE information, he said I had too much behind the strut distance. I have access to a metal lathe and can reface the flanges as necessary and agree its important to ensure its face is square to t...

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

Matt,
I'm sorry I may not be clear.

Using standard SAE dimensions I go t 5.5".

My shaft guy says I need a 4.6" dimension.

The debate is to go with either a 5.5" or 4.6" distance beyond the strut. My prop guys dimension seems tight to me!

Thanks for your interest and I hope I'm clear.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Matt, Maybe its a Texas thing, I see these guys taking beautiful pictures without any sawdust in them and I get embarrassed to post pics of my boat!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20

ok, you guys talked me out of the really cool, antique and possibly problematic tank. I'm going with a less problematic, boring 29 gallon plastic one!

Re: Texas Barrelback 20 - tool caddy

Guys, for the last 3 days, I have not had to go into my boat for a lost tool dropped down through the unfinished deck!

How many of you can say that??

I built a tool caddy, it took 20 minutes and has already saved that much time!
