Re: Team

The stem of my Tahoe is made of three layers of Douglas Fir boards. I could not make each layer from one board. So, I had to splice them. The splices of each layer are in different locations.

I'll try to measure tomorrow. I used RDS Aluminum. You have to be very precise dealing with them on custom tanks. There are several off the shelf tanks that they build. Check Jamestown Dist. Custom tanks that they will make don't seem to be much more expensive.

Re: Christo - Long Island Sound

Christo You will have to measure the tanks. I have two boats with below deck tanks. I didn't get them per the design drawings. I have 4 scuppers on the Bartender. They are on the sides. I don't know about your boat. Mine has a crown in the deck. If yours does, put put them as close to the sides as y...

I don't see it as a real problem. It definitely will go off. Encapsulation is not for strength. Most of hardener is solvent that evaporates. So, the ratio isn't that far off.

I think the red goes to volt, the black is a common ground for the all of the instruments. I think you're correct on the rest.

Re: through-hull drains

I'm planning remove the garboard drain and plug the holes. they seem to act as a one-way valve in. I'd rather rely on the pumps alone than let water in for the pump to get out.

Re: Fiberglass and strakes

Footer These are spray-rails. Not to complicate things, I like to cut mine like Fig. 3. The bottom of the rail is perpendicular to the side from the stem to the widest point of the beam (usually about the helm). From there it flattens to flat with the cruising water surface. If there is much of a ta...

Re: Klondike Build

Steve,

I would love to be there to see her in the water. But, I told Lauren that it was not in the travel budget to go to OR in June or Christmas to see her son. So, I don't think it would fly to come see your boat in the water. We have a really big trip coming in Oct.

Regards,
Bill

I went directly from an always hot fuse block to the float switch. The only problem with the 3 way is you have to remember to switch it. My manual switch has its own light. It would be nice to have an indicator from the float switch.
