Baron

Sorry, I missed your earlier post. We're mostly Mobile Bay, Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, to Pensacola. Lots of time on the ICW.

Re: Hunky Dory or perhaps Chunky Dory

Baron I think the V-Dory is flat bottom at the stern. So just like your Carolina Skiff it will pound it a chop. It will be very seaworthy though. I think the vee bow will knock down some of the waves though. (I am not a Marine architect and I don't work for Glen-L. So, this just my opinion.) All the...

Re: Hunky Dory or perhaps Chunky Dory

This is a really nice V-Dory. Adam brought it to the Gathering one year.

Re: Somerset, KY Gentry

Re: Somerset, KY Gentry

On shaft diameter the limiting factor is prop diameter. The 1" shaft will take up to a 13" dia. I know, maybe 14". Without going to a custom prop, about the most you can go is 4000 shaft rpm on a 12" prop. Max rpm goes down as dia. goes up. This all works with engine rpm, gear ratio, prop dia., and ...

The frame kits were made by a guy named Allyn. When he retired they stopped having them. I don't know what the arrangement on the new Zip kits is.

Glad for you! Sorry for your wallet!

Wish I could come out! But, Lauren seems to think our 25th Anniversary trip is more important, silly woman.

Re: G-14 Dates and Location

We down to about 8 MONTHS!

I'm working on the Bartender right now. My body doesn't twist and stuff in those small spaces like it once did. I don't remember THAT hurting! :x
