Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

I was afraid that I had really screwed up! When Butch and I pulled the boat after the Gathering, I had problems at the ramp. I decided to just line the boat onto the trailer. When we got back to Hales Bar parking, Butch got out of the truck and yelled, "The engine is still running!". I've ...

That is this boat. http://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/v-dory-d ... am-machala

Adam came to the Gathering a few years ago. Loved the boat.

Things to Do With 15 Minutes

I bring this up from time to time. Builders sometimes get discouraged. The advice from most of us is just do something, Bill Over in Sailboats "Minuet - "Sweet Pea" Robert (RAZOPP) and others were complaining about time to work on their boats. Dale (Smith Brother) suggested that boat ...

I'm pretty sure that Butch & Paula Barto and Jeff & Melanie Cobb are planning to be there also.

Re: Zip Help Needed - Cavitation, Turbulence, Transom Height?

I've been thinking on this one. Many of the older engines just had a shear key on a tapered shaft. If the nut was really tight the prop might not slip until under much load even with the key sheared. I just don't know this engine.

I was thinking of dumping wind. I had roller furl on the Genny. I can see what you're talking about now. Sometimes you have to pull a sail down.

Re: Dream Builder

It is weight times distance divided by weight. That will give you a distance. A few inch ins will sink you.

Re: Zip Help Needed - Cavitation, Turbulence, Transom Height?

I agree with Chris. Sounds like the hub is slipping. Everything else looks ok. Chris or Roberta: Didn't we have this one year at the Gathering. Somebody's boat ran good to a point. Then the engine rpm jumped and they had no more power. As I remember, there was a rubber "donut" with teeth o...

Many builders do this. It is actually stronger than a single piece. If you use metal fasteners do your fairing with a belt sander.

Re: Dream Builder

This is not a difficult calculation. Pick a spot, any spot. Take the major weights and multiply by their distance from that spot. Now, add those numbers up and divide by the their total weight. This will give you the cg of the equipment from the spot. Weights behind your spot are negative, weights i...

Re: Someone to get advice.

Just ask here. Many of the builds are done the same. Your boat is not much different from Barrel back or a Tahoe. You will get help.

Re: Craigslist Glen-L 21CB?

What about cam-cleats for the jib lines? Then you could dump the jib quickly.

A cold mold boat, with all the battens probably could be flipped. But, I would feel better if the bottom or side planking were on it.

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

Steven Generally, engine stringers are set 26" inside face to inside face. When you are sure of your engine choice, you can probably go to their web site and see detailed drawings of the engine and mounts. I printed mine for the Tahoe full size. I then glued them to some very cheap ply and made...
