Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

The backer on the inside to prevent tearout is a good idea.
I did a practice run on a 2x6 to actually see and measure where the hole comes out on the inside, when you measure from the outside. (dont forget about planking thickness)

Re: Aluminium boat Panama

The DE is not just a inboard. The plans include outboard, IO, and inboard power details, and different skeg alternatives.
I built mine with no skeg at all.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I'm getting close to the shaft bore. I don't have an engine, yet, but I assume I need to bore the shaft hole before glassing and before the flip? My thought process: -place the strut and rudder based on the positions in the plans -use the strut placement to bore the shaft hole, making sure the shaf...

Re: Interesting Wood Find

Gosh Ray,
Your boat looks really nice trimmed out in Oak the way you did.
Imagine if it was trimmed out in Teak !!
You need to build another boat to find out !!!

Re: Aluminium boat Panama

Double Eagle in aluminum
You can delete or change the cabin as required.
The running bottom of Double Eagle is what makes it go.
runs well in heavy seas and still gets up on plane.
I stretched mine to 24'8" and I love it.

my avatar is it on first launch.

Re: Tongue weight / gross weight questions

how much weight does your tow vehicle react with that? In other words, how much does your vehicle lower with that tongue weight? If you say it already tows good, why bother. I towed a uhaul one time, moving household goods, and it towed funny, I found it was light on the tongue. I rearranged the loa...

Re: Neel's Palm Beach 22 build

Looking at the bottom drawing, is the engine sitting farther forward than we are used to seeing?
Or, is that a optical illusion?

Re: Seriously???????

That bridge looked like a I-beam itself, the top, the bottom, and the triangle trusses in between. If the triangle trusses in between is the web, then the top & bottom make a I-beam. Did you see the photos of the demolition crews jackhammering it apart? It is full of re-bar. If you got a I-beam,...

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

There is drain holes, and, limbers. It can get hard to see just where they go when the build is upside down, we have all done it; drilled a hole or limber on the low side (upside down) , only to find out the drain is on the high side when you flip the boat !!! A big part of all this is up to your im...

Re: Craigslist Trailer Advice

I also looked at the used trailer route, then finally decided to go brand new aluminum. Glad I did. When you figure all the parts, time, & money to get a used one up to par, you are likely within a few dollars of new. I shopped on Ebay, found a popular seller, and called him direct, bought it fo...
