Re: Electric barrelback!

With a 13x13 prop at 2500 rpm I think you might get 26 mph. That is with a 1:1 gear ratio.

The Barrelback does not need 250 hp. I have a 20'-6" Tahoe. It will do 38 MPH with a Yanmar 125 diesel. 125 hp. metric is 115 hp. in the US. I guess we have bigger horses here.

Re: Question about the breasthook position

Open my Tahoe pictures below. The third set of pictures down shows stem and breast hook. The center of the stem projects to the point of the top of the piece of the breast hook.

What HP and max RPM are you planning to run. Also, would like the total weight of the boat, including you and fuel.

I went with one door. With two doors, you always have a door in the way if you need to work. I put the hinge on the side that had the least equipment that I might have to work on.

Re: Baltic Birch… Good or Bad Idea?

If you can get a sample of the ply, boil a small piece and see if it separates. If it does... no.
