Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

Hi Bill,
How does this sound 207 hp@ 4000rpm and 321 lbs ft @ 1900 rpm, the boat needs to be wider! For 2 v6s Jaguars.

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

Mr Hot Rod, That looks great, but thinking about it, they staggered engs in Perol boats in the Second World War! I think from memey 60/70s class one power boats were staged 4x1000hp! In the eightys there was a accident and never returned shame. I still have a boat that was going to enter a race acro...

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

Hi Nameng This engine is 24 inch wide, 27 inch long without gearbox this is approx hight don't no at the moment but this fits in baby Jaguars. I think it would need a alloy sub frame or maybe the hole thing main stringers in alloy. I like the look of these boats, but never seen one. So hard! Steve.

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

Hi Bill, What is the distance of your main stringers? 2ft? I think one issue would be the side decks, and hight? I saw a Burtrum 25 once with twin Perkins 6354 turbos in it, it was tight! May be alloy engine sub frame could be made and bolted through before the skin is put on, and cut in to the main...

Hi Bill,
In standed form, 153hp @ 3500 rpm, 270lbsft @ 1800rpm. Gearbox, there are some boxes that can be run in reverse,to be checked out? B/W can not. Can I say the performance of your boat is impressive!

Making a monto Carlo wider

Hi,
Has anybody done this and how much? Could it be twin screw with 4cycl diesels? I am thinking 2 X 152hp 2.2l Jaguar engines. When chipped over 200 hp. So lots of power and light waight!
Thanks Steve.

Re: Main stringers

Hi Ken,
Was thinking Monto Carlo, but nothing set in stone yet? Only becouse of the room in engine bay, and it looks like there is more V at the sturn. If only we lived in the USA you have all the parts and big toys!! It would have a hatch at rear like Brads amazing look!

Re: Main stringers

Hi,
I hope ever one will bear with me, Alloy could be an option? Timber we have a wholesaler? I am thinking the bottom of the hull 1 inch and 3/4 on sides? No ply!

Re: Main stringers

Hi,
Vibration is a big consideration I am thinking v8 deisel. My plans have changed and the boat will have run in the sea? So it needs built strong, I just love the look of these boats!
