Re: What's your favorite navigation app?

Lake Powell
Anywhere from 100' to 500' to 1'
Lots of formations, some just under the surface. I hit ground there. Lucky going slow and soft sandstone, no damage.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

In my opinion what is not required is lining the shaft hole with a fiberglass tube. I have had and have seen more than one boat with motor stringers wrapped in fiberglass where water has gotten in and traps the water in and rots the wood. If you are careful about sealing the hole prior to installing...

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

Routing a recess for the strut is not required but is helpful if you need to make adjustments to the angle. Roberta set up a pad for the strut and drilled the shaft hole before planking the hull. A good approach if you know that early exactly where your engine will sit. Makes it easy to see the exac...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

Mine are mounted about even with the lifting eyes. If you run the line forward or back it is captured by the chock.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

On my Monaco the fin is centered 105" from the transom just in front of the engine. It handles great too.

Re: Lee's Monaco utility build

In my Monaco I have a 300hp 350 Chevy, 1:1 VelvetDrive 1" shaft and an Acme 13 x 12.625 prop. At WOT this prop holds my rpms at about 5000 and 55mph. If you go over 300hp Acme makes up to a 13 x 14 prop, with a 1:1 transmission that might keep your rpms down. Myself I would not be comfortable over 5...

Re: Cutoff lanyard now required by law

Yes a good idea, but as far as the law it is only for boats built January 2020 or later. Factory built for sure, but a home built even after Jan 2020, not sure.

Re: Where to place thrust bearing, Miss Crackerbox?

No you can't use the strut. If you end up putting in a velvet drive you don't need a separate thrust bearing. If you set it up direct drive it can be mounted between the shaft log and the engine with a heavy duty crossmember bolted to the engine stringers. Remember all the force to push the boat is ...

Re: barrel back 19 in annapolis

I basically used the same setup as Jim using the strut as a guild and a starter block but instead of a forester bit I made a long hole saw out of 1 1/2" conduit. Ground and offset teeth on one end and bolted a regular hole saw inside the other to hook the mandrel to. Once started tracks straight, no...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I have mine setup to fold back. It is held with a pin and clip when forward. Not a necessary feature but is nice when using the cover.

Re: Engine hatch hinges

The way I did it on a curve ( it would also work on a straight edge ) is with 2 pins through bronze bushings held by clips. When the hatch is opened the rear drops down as the front goes up. To Remove the hatch, remove the clips and close the hatch, then the pins can be removed from the rear cockpit...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

This doesn’t apply if you choose to use a two part spray application, but for traditional varnish I recommend reading this book https://www.amazon.com/Brightwork-Finishing-Wood-Rebecca-Wittman/dp/0071579818 .( don’t know why it’s so expensive I know I didn’t pay that much, may find used on somewhere...
