Glad you made it though OK pard, I missed the chance to pray for a good surgery so I'll pray for a speedy recovery.

Re: deeper Vee ZIP

Is there some kind of formula to calculate the hp needed for a certain dead-rise ? The two most common formulas for calculating HP are the Crouch formula and the Keith formula. It's not as cut and dry as saying that "x degrees= y HP" but here's a decent link or two to read up on. http://continuousw...

Re: deeper Vee ZIP

No pissing contest, but whatever man. I was just trying to be helpful and keep the OP from getting bad advice because plain and simple, a v hull does not make a boat a displacement hull.

I'm out, have a nice day.

Re: deeper Vee ZIP

Where do you see true grit listed as a displacement hull? The page on it shows a speed of 18-20mph which is well above displacement speed for it's waterline. I don't need to read the inboard motor installation book and I'm certainly not trying to be a jerk, but I've studying hull design a lot and ha...

Re: deeper Vee ZIP

...I am not looking for speed but a comfortable ride with minimum power if possible. Then just slow down a bit :wink: Keep in mind that the more deadrise you have, the more power it takes to move at the same speed. Deep V hulls are great for going fast in a chop, but there is no free lunch, you hav...

Re: Staple Holes

A bit late perhaps, but I'll chime in anyway for future reference. One thing that will make a HUGE impact on staple holes is to take a rag and some steaming hot water and wipe down the cedar. The steamy hot water will swell the wood a bit and cause the holes to swell shut pretty good. You can still ...

Re: Seaknight Power

It would be a bit underpowered, but probably still able to plane if kept light with minimal load. BTW, I see you're in Rincon. I spent a lot of time down there back when I lived in GA. I've caught many fish from Ebaneezer creek and out of the little oxbow lake just upstream of where Ebaneezer creek ...

Good job on the tank and gantry crane (sorta)

Looks like a good way to test outboards.

Re: Help! what to buy to redesign boat

No worries Gavo, I play with RC's a bit. I have a 26" twin screw electric, but it's not fast. I also have a highly modded stadium truck with a 26,000rpm nitro and 2 speed transmission that will flat out boogie on the pavement or dirt! That's where I came to play on the RC Universe forum, there's som...

Re: CAUTION TENNESSEE BUILDERS!!

Keep your reciepts on everything and you might get away OK. I wrote the gov on this matter who in turn sent me an e-mail saying he had given my e-mail to someone else. A few months later I got a letter in the mail from the head of the department of revenue. His explanation was that it was all sales ...
