I've become sensitive to epoxy. I've used MAS with slow hardener with good luck. West is really good. I used it on the Tahoe.

Re: Accuracy of Depth Sounders ??

On the Bartender, I have a Lowrance Elite 7 Chirp w/ Transom mount. One screen does show the relative size of the fish. This boat has unique transom arrangement. At full plane, I loose signal. I don't fish much. But, on the Alabama Gulf Coast you can get into skinny water quickly.

Re: Windshield questions

Jim Mine come straight out. I went 3" or 4" above the bracket on the Tahoe, see link below. I have 1/4" tempered glass. A flat rubber gasket wraps the edges at the brackets. I put soapy water on the gaskets then inserted into the bracket. When dry I trim the excess gasket with a razor...

The write-up says anywhere from 65 to 200 HP. I think 150 would really fit!

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

I had surgery on Tuesday, 11/14. You talk about pain Tuesday night and Wednesday! Had to sleep in my chair all blocked up so I could not move. Lauren said that she had not seen anyone leave the hospital in that much pain without a baby! Thursday morning I quit the pain meds. They became worse than t...

Neel

You can do it! This is certainly not first time build! My approach would be to cut fat, then use my belt sander to cut off the stuff that is not boat.

Re: Biscayne 22 vs Belle Isle

Pat I don't see much difference in the running surface. The Belle seems to have a little more round transom, barrel. The Biscayne has a little blockier transom. That might but you an 1" or 2" width in the rear cockpit. No handling or performance difference. Just a matter of taste. On both ...

Re: Gear ratio....i'm so lost

Joe

If your engine will turn 4800, I assume it's not diesel. At 10 knots, that's about 65% of WOT. That is about right for gasoline. Diesels at 80-85%. The prop estimates should be good as starting point. Cruise RPM should bee about 2875.

Re: Gear ratio....i'm so lost

Joe

With a 2:1 ratio and 4600 RPM, I'm seeing a 16x11 prop. 16x10 at maybe 4800 and 16x12 at maybe 4400.

Let me try a different approach. What RPM is the max Torque and continuous operating RPM? That should be near the cruising speed. Boats are really about torque not ultimate HP.

Re: Gear ratio....i'm so lost

What Ken said. Plus, depending the exposed shaft length you may want to consider a whip strut.
