Re: Starting my first build with a jet TNT

Hi Denon, Yeah, it's been a couple minutes hasn't it? :D Still working on the TNT but progress has been slow on any actual building worthy of pictures yet. I've been spending a lot of time with the CAD program drawing up all the billet aluminum "bling" that i'll need for the TNT, like the ...

Re: UK Zip Build

Hi Sproggy,

The work on your Zip is looking great so far. I really like how the transom turned out, nicely done!

I also really like your drive concept (but I've always been a fan of thinking outside the box :D ).I'll be following along and I can't wait to see it in action.

Thanks,
Dave

Re: New member from SE Michigan

Welcome to the club Chuck!

It's always great to have another Michigander here, and building a TNT to boot? That's awesome!

If this keeps up we're going to have to do a gathering up here in the very near future. :D

Thanks,
Dave

Re: Project-Squirt

Hi guys, That is really great! Building a Squirt will provide opportunities to learn not only woodworking skills, but a lot of other skills to boot, such as epoxy and fiberglass, fabrication, electrical, etc. (ESPECIALLY if you do it with jetski power). :D Have fun with it and if you run into any is...

Re: Roustabout Hull redesign To Accept Jet

Hi Joe,

You're gonna want to grab a copy of Glen-L's Inboard Motor Installations. It actually goes pretty in-depth regarding installing jet drives in wood hulls. It's definitely worth the price of admission.

Thanks, :D

Re: midengine

Hi jphil62, It definitely can, and has been done, but ....... Do you know what the honest weight difference is between the complete original engine as installed (with all the accessories and exhaust attached) and the 6bt in the same configuration? With the Regal originally designed as an I/O drive, ...

Yeah, It's looking like it's probably going to be a bit of both doesn't it........ If nothing else Matt, it should make for some interesting sea trials when it's time to get it wet.. :lol: I've been going through the past gatherings and I'm thinking that I'd definitely like to make it to G-12 this y...

Hi Matt,

I'm glad that your Geronimo build is still going and I can't wait to see it! (Hopefully this September in person if I can make down)

Did you decide on a motor for it?

Thanks :D

Re: Desperado

Hi Duggie, welcome back! It's curious that neither the website nor the paper catalog makes any mention of shortening the Desperado (just the choice of 18 or 19'). I never noticed that before. Looking at the hull shape, I don't see why the design couldn't be shortened and stay fair like a lot of the ...

Re: Lengthen the overnighter

Hi Lakecat, From what I understand, and someone please correct me if I'm wrong, some of the designs were limited from being extended because the design is pretty much at it's safe upper limits structurally. Unless you're a naval architect, or very familiar with the balances, stresses and the hydrody...
