Re: Boat video directory

It's been a while since the last update ! We've been busy block sanding the Hot Rod's deck and fixing up some dock rash while listening to some inspirational music.

Re: Build a Gantry?

Here's some inspiration if you decide to build a gantry ... We designed and built a portable gantry to move the boat from its cradle to the trailer. The 6" wide x 12' long I-beam is supported by jackposts which adjust from 7' to 9' in height. The 3" C-channel base is supported by 8" steel casters. I...

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

You may leave the beam as is but stretch the boat to accomodate a staggered engine configuration. The engines could mount to remote v-drives located just behind the cockpit. One engine would be closely coupled while the other engine would be coupled by a torque tube which parallels the first engine ...

Re: Dream Builder

What does this number mean exactly? As in, the stern will sit 4 inches lower? 1) Add the weights of all objects. Add the weight moments. 2) Divide the total moment by the total weight. This is the distance from the datum to the center of gravity. Here are some links to augment Bill's post : → For a...

Re: Rampage Update 2017

Looking good, Denon ! Epoxy doesn't self-level like paint. Roller application creates a heavy film which tends to mottle and requires a lot of sanding to level out the surface. Have you tried 'tipping' the rolled epoxy with a foam roller ? Follow the link in this post for more info : • Re: Help! air...
