Re: FF in Kathleen GA

Thanks everyone for the great pictures! I have a stupid question for the group. What is the best way to remove the epoxy-dust after sanding the first epoxy layer. A damp cloth? A tack clock? Anything else?

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

This is hilarious. I too keep the epoxy in the house, it's nice to hear that I am normal. Well, maybe not "normal," rather I should say consistent with others. I'm going with the [flawed] presumption that I'm not crazy if there are other people doing the same thing.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

So Matt, I've been hoping to take a ride in your boat one day. I'm thinking that we need to time this ride when you are about to run out of gas!

Don't forget a bus for the flux capacitor there, Doc Brown!

Re: Purchasing engine for 20' barrelback

Thanks Roberta. I must be confused. I read that different people have different down-angles, and many people warn about having room for the prop and the ability to remove the prop.

Re: Purchasing engine for 20' barrelback

Thanks Tom. I think we talked about this some on one of your posts - appreciate you chiming in. I called your guy, and they have stopped selling the PCM EX343 in 5.7. Only 6.0 now. I will look elsewhere for the 5.7. I might have some luck with a place called Chamberlains (I think). And hopefully not...

Purchasing engine for 20' barrelback

I've been asking related questions on this site for the past several months, and now is the time when I need to purchase an engine I will be using so that I can properly drill the propeller shaft in the bottom of my 20 foot barrelback. As for me, I am a carpenter hobbiest who knows very little about...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I think you got your holes switched up! The one on the left should be on the right, and vice-versa.

Re: Tahoe 23

Tom H and Tom B Thanks for all of your details and comments. I have been a silent follower of this thread for some time. I am building a 20' barrel back and am also about to purchase an engine. I have not been successful in finding a 4.3L V6 with fuel injection, so will likely be using the PCM 343. ...

Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

That looks amazing. In case you didn't know, I too am building a barrelback, and may also be on the "8-year plan". I am encouraged by your picture of your boat, but nervous about the picture of you curled into a ball doing the wiring. I am 6'5" and I do not "curl." I may need to take this into consi...

Re: Need help on finding a motor for a 20' barrelback

Thanks for everyone's help. I spoke with Michiganmotorz again, and they do have the exact solution that Jim mentioned - thanks for the help! Jim, I assume that if you had to do it again, you would make the same decision with the carburetor V6? Of course having extra horse power/torque to take off so...

Need help on finding a motor for a 20' barrelback

I am getting near the point where I will be finished with the bottom planking, and will want to drill a hole for the propeller shaft and rudder. Trying to gather suggestions from across several posts, I believe that I should have a motor picked out so that I can properly position the holes. I would ...
