Re: Beginner Questions

AL Welcome! We had our first three Gatherings at Guntersville. I would recommend the Malahini https://www.boatdesigns.com/products.asp?dept=339 and stretch it the 10%. It will cost very little more than the ZIP. It will be much more comfortable for 4 adults and will run good on 40 HP. It will do a l...

Until Gayle gets a link set up, if you send me a PM with your E-Mail address, I'll send them to you.

Cost to Build and Displacement.

I just sent Gayle the spreadsheets for my Tahoe build. I thought I had lost them in a computer crash a few years ago. They are for the Tahoe built at 20'-6". The cost sheets should be good for most of the 20' Mahoganies. As far as the stuff you will need it may be of help for many builds. The displa...

I used stainless bolts and stainless T-nuts with aluminum. Long screws would probably work fine. Galvanically, stainless and aluminum are pretty close.

Matt

I think your going to be in the 50-52Mph range. I think the 13" dia. Is very close. I'll have to look I to pitch. But, my gut says 15 or 16. Paul's stuff is probably better. My way seems to work for me. I'd like to see how they compare and work.

Re: Dynojet?

Looks like a good build to me. I don't know of another DynoJet build right now. There are several people with stitch and glue experience here and with jet experience.

Re: Hello from St. Pete Florida!

T Butch Barto has the Big Tahoe. I know he has had it out in 4 footers. I think that is a good choice. Depending on what you want the engine doesn't have to be that big. Butch runs a BIG block. It is a great boat. We certainly will be here for questions. Don't be afraid to ask any thing on the forum...

Tahti

Welcome! I don't which Tahoe you will build. I built mine at 20'-6". I always recommend the 10% stretch. The link below is a step by step photo essay on my Tahoe build.

Re: Biss's Malahini Build

I flipped the Tahoe about the same way by myself. I used a series of rope loop and pullies from the ceiling. And yes! Right at the end it flipped itself! :lol: :wink:

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Matt I run a 13x16 w/1.23:1 8*down angle. The diesel is 115hp and will turn 3900 rpm. The Tahoe will run 38 to 39 mph. With a little more hp and a little more rpm, the 13x13 may be fine. I would try the prop that you have first. It won't cost you anything to try it. Torque wise the diesel equals abo...
