I can't really answer this. I have a diesel. I have a key to start it. I have to push a button (with the key on) to stop it.

Re: Building the PeeWee in Germany

You may want to consider solid vinyl for the skeg. It will probably get run on to the boat ramp or beach. I would only make it 25 to 30mm high.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

It takes a while. Each time you change one mount they all have to be tweaked.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Aligning the motor and shaft is not hard, just tedious. As I remember it is one millimeter per inch of coupling diameter.

In rough numbers, outboards are $100/HP. Much less used.

Re: G-13 Dates/Hales Bar cabin booking instructions

HB was sold to a new owner who owns other marinas, also. I'm sure they are not all booked up. Do identify that you are with our group. Last year they blocked all of the floating cabins and some of the land cabins for us.

Re: G-13 Dates/Hales Bar cabin booking instructions

That doesn't sound right. We'll check into it. They may have it blocked out for us. There is no way that HB is sold out in that time slot.

They sold out. The new management has decided that they want a deposit. I don't have a problem with that in and of itself. Neel is working on the conditions.

I just setup my deposit. Don't really like it. It's done.

Re: Neeley's Barrelback - Sacramento

I have made my deck frames all to the same curve. I made top the deck members for all of the frames. after the flip, I cut the ones that I didn't need and used them for relocated beams and hatches.

The other problem I had, that was hard to find, the fuel line came up next to the radiator. That heated the gas and caused the floats in the SU carbs to crack and sink. I like to have never found that!

I still loved the car!

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I agree. I put the front of the rudder plate flush at the keel. It is aft of the prop and won't cause cavitation. Nobody will know your doing 40 instead of 40.125 mph.

I would go with the bigger boat, even stretched if you can. They are both great boats. But, people are just bigger than they were when they were designed.

Re: Key Largo Update - Boise, ID

Healey! I had a green '67 3000 back in the early '80s. It could have killed me. I loved the car. Make sure the u-bolts on the rear axle are good and tight! The axle slipped and it flipped! I had added seat belts! The other problem was the Prince of Darkness electrical system (Lucus)… I didn't leave ...
