Re: Glen-L Party Boat

Its actually a pretty practical boat and really not bad looking. It looks pretty modern which is a departure from the Glen-L we expect. For me the reason I am willing to put a lot of work into building my own boat is that you cant just go buy a brand new boat that looks and functions like most of th...

Re: Torpedo X 0.16

Nice models.

I find it harder in a lot of ways working on the tiny stuff than the full size lumber. If you can build a good model you can certainly build a good full size boat.

Bill,

Wishing you a speedy recovery my friend. I agree, this injury needs a better cover story.

Re: modified malahini

I feel its personal preference of what you like the look of. I like to see a little of the bottom paint and all of the stripe. Others dont want to see any of it or just the stripe. Do what you like. I like the idea in your case of really sanding that edge of the fiberglass really well so it wont be ...

Re: Finishing Zip Hull

My skeg ends fairly abruptly and it causes no problems. I think mine is taller than yours too so I dont think youll have any issues. Did not fiberglass it either.

Re: Geronimo's motorbox

My tank is in the bow and the fill is on the deck just forward of the windshield. My rubber fuel line runs down the starboard side and my electrical runs down the port side. The hard part is hiding the line from sight. The primer bulb on mine is mounted right where the fuel line passes by the driver...

Re: Geronimo's motorbox

With a 90hp motor you will want more than a 6 gal tank. You might burn as much as 8 or 9 gal an hour a full throttle. Unless you use multiple 6 gal tanks I wouldn't plan on pulling the tank out to fill. A 15 gal tank would weight about over 90lbs.

Re: Solar powered Amp Eater

Sounds like a great time Dave, we did the same here with the Zip this weekend. Leaves will probably peak next weekend here. Highs are only in the 50's next week.
