Re: RowMe

Sounds like the perfect temp to do some epoxy work. Hope you can find enough PPE for your proposed work. Around NH it is more scarce than toilet paper was.

Re: Deck planking and gap

I went with 3/16. GarWood ran that on theirs. What you often see are deck seams that have been reamed out over the years of recaulking so you can do that too. Probably easier wider if you are using contrasting wood stripes Wish to correct myself on this one and add a vote for Jim’s 1/8” width for th...

...Don't think it eluded you! Looks beautiful and your cutwater and rub rail blend together nicely at the bow.

Re: Tom's Tahoe

Tom-
Nice work on the construction and finish!
Yes that is the process with the Perfection if you want that elusive glass like finish. Definitely want at least 3 coats of finish on there when all done buffing. Surely is beautiful!

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

Billy C Do you run a central fin? I put one on it. I haven't put a fin on it as Hankinson did not include it in his lines, but many of Hankinsons classics did call for one. (All the ski boats do run them (some multiple) and our V to flat running surface when on plane would certainly help stop the w...

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

HV- Thanks for the update. I was interested in some of the answers and glad you are at least being cautious of the current limitations of the hull. I am sure if you went balls to the walls with the throttle you would most likely find what you suspect that that engine would exceed the potential top s...

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

Not that the rudder is the problem (or the only one), but depending on rudder shape, that sounds large for that narrow lightweight hull. You might be getting lift, loosening the stern, especially if you don't have a full fuel tank or passengers in the 3rd cockpit. Someone experienced with inboard bo...

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

That really doesn’t sound right. I’ve been out in snotty stuff and while not going 35 thru it it never has the tendency to hook and that was thru chaotic wave directions. I would get that mechanic or experienced captain to take the helm. Might be able to narrow down the problem

Re: 23’ Belle Isle “hooking”

I know who’s boat it is and of the accident. Would be interested also in some details also as I’ve run mine for quite a few seasons and have not experienced that. Not sure what you mean by hooking but would not run it at those speeds 40 if it is doing that. Start by making sure the running surface i...

Bob-
Great to see the update. Love how the engine snuggles in that compartment! Bob Perkins has a very comfortable seating design, so good one to follow if you want to split the cockpits.
