Carl I have a Yamaha 115 with two 22 gal. tanks. I takes a long time to run one tank down. Your boat will probably have a WOT of about 35 mph. Easily cruise at 25 to 27. Four hours at 25 is 100 miles. That is a long way on the water. My saltwater fishing friends say, "1/3 tank going out, 1/3 tank co...
Sproggy I do like this little boat! Good quality Okumne (Never can spell that damn word.) can be finished out bright with very good results. The biggest thing is that the frame fairing has to be almost perfect. Under paint you can use a fairing mixes to fill depressions or fasteners. Bright work... ...
As said, the big problem with gas heaters is moisture (and chance of CO). Depending on what you're doing the moisture may not be that big an issue. With epoxy, may be a little cloudy and will cure out fine. You might also get a little blush. Polyurethanes actually need some humidity to cure out prop...
Bryan 1. I don't have a vent on my deck fill. 2. Fill hose must be USCG approved, I think it's Class 1 or 1A. (Don't depend on my memory.) 3. I don't have one.

Robert I used white 4000UV on the Tahoe in 2008. Worked well. I think it's 3000UV now. I could not get enough black 4000UV for the Bartender. So, I used Sika 291, WRONG STUFF! I should have use 295! The 291 is a real mess now. I'm having a bad time trying to remove it. Some of it flakes right, some ...
I can meet someone on I-20 near the AL/GA line. I'd bring the boat to my house in B'ham. I can make arrangements to take it toward Memphis up I-22/US78 AL/TN line. From Memphis it's I-40 to OKC.
Tahti The big Tahoe is a great boat. Hankinson's design is plenty strong to be built as utility. If you go with the original design, I'd make the cockpits as wide as you can. You can frame the engine compartment to squeeze the compartment and add the length to the cockpits. Make the engine hatch as ...
