Re: Glen-L Newsletter & Builder Galleries

I'm glad to hear Gayle is able to pass the torch to another, and keep the plans alive and available. Josh wants to keep the forum going and that is good news.

Re: Converting an outboard engine to an inboard

No, the other way around.
I bought a donor I/O boat, removed the engine, sold off all the I/O stuff, and made myself a straight inboard.

Re: Converting an outboard engine to an inboard

I converted my inboard 3.0L from a I/O. all that midsection/lower unit/steering crap is heavier than you think. I weighed that crap, and I weighed the strut/rudder/shaft/Velvetdrive also. I was shocked what I found out.

Re: Fitting chine on the Slither

I saw that also. But I cannot visualize the bottom and sides in the front. there will be little to no angle between them. I just poured got water over towels on the chine to"steam" the twist.

Re: Fitting chine on the Slither

I hesitated a bit before I chimed in, I'll post this bullet points from empirical data of my own build and reading others . your chine notch on #4 looks spot on, assuming all rest are correct as well .it look...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

"As I understand it, no fuse is required for the connect from ignition to gauges, but I saw somewhere that someone put in an inline fuse over to the tachometer?" well, ummm, there should be a fuse somewhere between the battary power and the ignition sw. Putting in relays seems to add to complexity, ...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

I think of the ignition switch as a distribution center for the electrical.
It has key selections for, off-on-start-aux
So, my way of thinking is to run the wire to the ign switch first, and daisy chain all the things you want to operate in a certain mode out from the switch

Re: Deeper Vee for Retro Cruiser options

Its amazing how much those big skegs don't slow you down. as big and ugly as they are it would seem a big drag, but no. At moderate speeds they dont bother your speed, but, push them above 35mph then they make lot of drag. at 20mph it no penalty. The small ones similar you see on outboards designs a...

If the skeg is really big like lobster boat it may not heel in a turn and that feels strange.<br/> But a small skeg would be a good thing.<br/> Look at some of the designs that give option for inboard and outboard power. those two different options give a di...
