Re: modified malahini

Thats cool, I got my floor boards up right now, and need to do that.
The recent posts about foam blocks should be a sticky topic.

the Sea Lark looks like it was on the set of the TV show Fireball XL5, or Thunderbirds, or Supercar

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

this is just thinking out loud, but these guys do a lot of exhaust fabrication, see how much twist/turns/snail curves they get by using mandrel bent tubing. yaa it is diesels, but perhaps you may take ideas downsize for the little ford, https://www.sbmar.com/featured-article/everything-you-need-to-k...

Re: White Oak for Belle Isle

Oak is not as tenacious at holding epoxy as some others. then you have to pre-drill for screws, then, if you break off a screw,,,you are screwed. Oak is so dense that epoxy pretty much sits on top and glues only a shallow bit on the surface, not a really DEEP bond. Cypress on the other hand, is a so...

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

Quite interesting that there is 3 possible exits. Are they interchangeable left/right depending which end you put the cap on? That is such a low installation, I don't see anything to talk about, the risers in my opinion is a must. It's just a matter of how. Osco had several flavors of generic risers...

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

I see it differently. You do not raise the engine up to compensate for a lack of a exhaust riser. What you gonna do with the shaft angle & CG at that point? The OP did mention about fabricating his own exhaust, so I would assume he could possibly fab a good riser. All those youtube videos did not ad...

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

Definitely need more pics of that.
All the log style manifolds I have seen have one end plate tapped for water INLET, and the water exits out the elbow/riser.
Need pics to determine if that is a dry stack or wet exhaust.
Either way, you need the elbows for that

Re: Who is coming and where?

WE have RV spots #31-36 blocked out in the name of Glen-L Boatbuilders. There is a couple still vacant, not reserved.
If they are not yet reserved Sept. 1 they get released to the general public.
