Building underway for the Jubilee

Post by Lowka53 » Sun Aug 08, 2010 10:17 am

:roll: I started my build on the Jubilee but still not desided on power plant going into it. been weighing the pros and cons of outboard i/o and inboard how about some views taking in consideration of the fact that the boat will be on a trailor in the winter. so will have to winterise the boat each year. but realize will have to winterise all the different types of power plants installed also will have to problly use a used engine

The straight inboard will be the most difficult to maneuver. The I/O will be the most difficult to install. The outboard is the easiest to build... But, do you want that thing hanging off the back?

Totally agree. Stay with an outboard if possible. The inboard is an absolute PAIN to manuever in close quarters. I am going to put bow thrusters on my next.

any advise on good book on outboard motor or marine engines other than having limited experience with the large ship motors in navy ships my only knowledge is in a old Johnson 25 hp we had as a kid on our old berch craft and that was very limited

The straight inboards dont have to be difficult to manoever. Given a keel and large rudder, a single engine inboard does turn and dock like you think it should.
The operative words here are keel and large rudder.

Rod,
Two things:

First your work space is too neat and tidy. You must do something about that ASAP. :D

Second. A 1968 1 ton with a big block. 8) I won't tell Oyster what it is. :wink: :lol:

:lol: the jubilee is a modified v bottom only about a 4 in rise from the keel to the chimes it does call for a pretty good size skeg the boat design can hold all of the type motor combination's but I have a 800 pound weight limit. I still haven't decided on what to put in it. it probably will be what I can get cheap :lol:

I hate to disagree with other posters, BUT, an inboard will always be difficult to maneuver around the docks. Going forward, no problem. It's backing up where the problems arise. Depending on the rotational direction of the prop the boat will be biased towards backing in only one direction. You will always be backing up in a turn even though you have full oposite rudder. It's just the way it is. Keel, fins, rudders do not solve this problem. When you learn which direction your inboard backs up, simply approach the dock at a 45 degree angle (forwards), and when the bow gets a couple of feet from the dock, put it into reverse and the stern will swing around so that you are parallel to the dock.

Garry - I wish mine would swing around like you say. I watched some others do just that this past weekend. Mine backs almost straight with very little bias to one side.
