Hi Neel,
I used a 4" beam (flange is 4" as well as the web) and its 1/4" thick. My beam is attached to the ceiling rafters every 16" and with 1/4" lag bolts( 2 at every rafter for a total of 22 of them).

My beam is 10 ft long.

I'm sure I could span several feet no problem, its very stout.

Its too bad you aren't closer, I have a spare beam!

I got to use my new I beam and trolley to take it out of the back of my truck and place it safely on the dolly's for now.

Congrats on the flip. Your boat looks great. That looks like a potent power plant going in!

Thanks Matt!

I need to buy my rudder components:
-tiller (1")
-safety collar (1")
-rudder stuffing box (1")
-rudder post bracket (1")

However, I have a part number for everything in 1 inch, but I cant seem to find the rudder post bracket in the inboard hardware, any suggestions?[/u]

First! You do know that isn't an outboard! :P

I don't see the bracket either. Call Gayle.

The Barrelback plans caution against over powering this design. I see no problem here, Carry on.

Bill,
I was just going to mount my engine off the back like an outboard, so much easier to fit it in and attach it with my raptor staples. :lol:

I will call Gayle, I was able to find it on Glenwood...$112 for my 1" rudder

Gayle can probably get it. Glenwood was founded by her uncle.

Actually, I think, in the early days her dad was involved.

Glen started it with his brother. They wanted these parts and started building them in his shed the best I remember. Man, Gayle had an awesome article about it in one of her news letters but I can’t find it. Maybe she will see this thread so she can copy and paste it here. Great bit of history.

Here’s one I found from Gayle telling someone a while back, confirmation Glen started it with his brother.
