Re: Plumbing twin tanks for EFI?

Denon

I run 2 tanks. I prefer the manual valve. My thought is to run one down then switch. Then fill the empty tank. This way I keep fresher fuel and if I get bad fuel someplace It is only in one tank.

I'd use it as is. Set the side to the dimension so that the corner is where it is supposed to be. Most of that material is cut out for the notch. Even more will come off in the fairing process.

Re: Rome, Ga. Barrelback

:lol: If they are "Blue Line" copies, they are already stretched. They are already a little big. You will "fair" the frames to a final line. That line will not match the drawing perfectly. Wood moves a lot. Enjoy your build1 :)

Yamaha 4 strokes are highly rated and priced. Suzuki is getting good reviews on our Gulf Coast and are better priced. There seems to be a problem with Hondas lower end in saltwater.

Re: Console Skiff Build

Butch Barto and I try to tell everyone that spray rails are not optional on most of these boats. They make the boat drier and a little faster. They also grip some in a hard turn.

I was eating store brand yogurt every morning. The plastic containers are a nice size to work with.

Re: Rudder authority

I have a wedge rudder. I'm not happy with it. I can control the boat in the marina. You really have to learn to use prop walk and the gears. You can't just let anyone at the helm. In and out of a slip can be a challenge on a windy day. Pleas don't help me until I ask.

I thought you were going back to Arizona. Where in Florida? If you come by way of B'ham you have a free nights stay and a hot meal!

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

There is not another straight line on a boat why do you think this one would be straight :?: Uniform side to side, yes!
