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, ...

Re: Starting my first build with a jet TNT

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...

Re: Another Geronimo Coming Soon

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...

Re: Starting my first build with a jet TNT

LOL!! Hi Bill, I don't know if Paul would be much help? I think he may be afflicted with the same disease? Maybe Paul and I can start up a support group for others who are similarly infected with this seemingly incurable condition. Now to come up with a name for the group that will give us a cool ac...

Re: Starting my first build with a jet TNT

Hi Jim, hope you and your family are doing well. I'm not positive, but I think the engine might have grown larger since I pulled it out? I don't remember it looking that size when it was sitting in the ski ..... or I may have contracted "toomuchisjustenoughitis" when I decided to build thi...

Re: Starting my first build with a jet TNT

Hi everyone, time for another mini update....... :D It's been downright frigid here in Michigan the last couple weeks, but that's been a good thing as it's given me some more time to work on the lofting and I'm finally happy with my "slightly revised" Jet TNT (I also realized that I oopsed...
