Carolina Angler.

I need some expert advice here. I have someone looking for this size c enter console for twin outboards. Is it feasible to reconfigure the transom for twin outboards up to the 450SHP level? I guess I'm talking about more thickness and athwartship braces and maybe motor brackets. This would be for of...

Re: Mist Miss Build

The plywood will be from one vendor close to me and the mahogany from Condon Lumber in White Plains NY. I can use 1/4" throughout on the sub planking and 1/4" longitudinal mahogany planks for the finish. I hadn't thought about the interior finish; but one layer of the 1/4" thickness m...

Mist Miss Build

I'm planning on a Mist Miss build for next year. The plans call for 1/2 in. plywood aft on the bottom and doubled 1/4 inch forward. I have two thoughts as I want to use 1/4 mahogany at least on the forward end as it will show above the water line. I could use 1/4 inch ply on the entire bottom and ov...

Re: Outboard and controls

You sound like you're from NY with the 10 hp rule. LOL I would suggest looking for a 1968 or earlier vintage Evinrude or Johnson 10 HP. and the same vintage remote controls. They all had the push and twist connection on the lifting handle. I am currently building an Ace runabout from Popular Mechani...

Re: Transom question

If you look at the Glastron project on my Facebook page you will see pics of how I do a stringer, transom and floor replacement. This was for a Glastron V153 to hold a 90 HP e-tec Evinrude. Go to Facebook and search for pamcraft boats.

Re: Stiletto Build

Cruising about 32 MPH.jpg Update on the Stiletto. I uncovered her this spring and found that my beautiful ribbon stripe mahogany deck had delaminated. With three coats of resin and 5 coats of varnish I don't know what happened. I wound up sanding everything down, epoxied it over and painted it the ...

Re: Transom Damage

Screw down clamps have been marring transom "since Hector was a pup." In case you are too young to remember, Hector was Blondie and Dagwood's dog. instead of stainless steel you can use an aluminum plate.

Re: Need help jet squirt

DON'T LOOK BACK!!!.jpg With a 550 Kawasaki, 38hp, I get a little over 30 mph with my squirt. If I do some fine tuning of the water intake I might get closer to 40. I seem to be picking up some air in the flow and not getting full thrust. I haven't done anything with it since I launched my Stiletto ...

Desirability of rocker in the bottom for performance/racing

I was discussing the idea of having a desirable rocker in a vintage racing runabout of approximately 1/4" per 6 ft. of length. Can anyone chime in here?
