Re: Travels and Adventures of "Curt's Dream" a True Grit design-The Great Loop

Are you using a power prop on your 150 (less pitch)? fuel might suffer somewhat but might raise rpm's and actually go faster.

Re: Building The Vera Cruise

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

Boat ballast

Just thinking about putting in form of ballast in "Chug-A-Lug" to prevent roll over in heavy waves.I've been researching water tanks built from ply and epoxy in"Duckworks".Water tanks or containers of potable water? Also might put 2 deep-cycle batteries as house set-up there .That would add 150 lbs ...

Re: modified malahini

That light looks nice on the boat.Plus,it looks like it has a hole for a short burgee flag pole.A Glen-L burgee would look nice there. :D

Re: Thinking about my next boat build.. a river cruiser?

On "Chug",the back door also is the door to the head.Will have to add curtain to porthole as well as door.Might have fold up shelf above toilet.My headspace is a little smaller but tall enough for me (6'3") :D
