Re: Generators

I'm not sure that marine detectors are needed on a small cuddy cabin with the generator separated from the cabin. Marine detectors can be linked to several other detectors. I think that is over kill in a 12 foot cabin. They can also be set up to turn off the generator, if you have that setup. CO is ...

Re: Zip Complete Wood Parts Kit Now Available!

Butch Barto reported a zip from the kit was at the Madisonville LA show this past weekend! I saw it on Monday 10/14 on I-65 North just south of Montgomery AL. Looks good!

Bryan

You have a neg. from the battery to the fuse box. A Neg bus bar that goes to the same battery Neg will be ok.

Re: Tiny might propeller slip

If there is little difference in speed, at some point the shaft torque hits a point where the clutch slips.

Re: Choice of (2) band saws, help...

I've built the Tahoe 19, a 24' Bartender, a strip canoe, and a mini tug. I used a jig saw, a table saw, and a circular saw.

I guess the old saying is right: "If all you have is a hammer all problems tend to be solved with a hammer."

I agree. This little one is not for the boat. The one for the Bartender exhaust overboard, is well vented, and is 10 feet from the cabin. Still need to have a monitor!

Re: BARRELBACK BUILD FROM TOLEDO

Byran is right. SB is the answer. SS requires air to protect it. It will corrode with out air. Also, SS should not contact carbon steel. I don't remember if SS or CS goes away first.

Most of us try to buy from Glen-L, our host. There are other sources though.

Re: The Fletchers Malahini

You also need someplace to stand up at the helm! You need to be able to see when docking, trash in the water, and people in the water!

Re: Riviera seaworthiness?

Rick I'm running a 20'-6" Tahoe 19. It does fairly well in 1' to 2' seas. I haven't had it in 4' swells. Butch Barto has had his big Tahoe in 4 footers and said the boat did better than they did. My problem is big sport fishermen throwing a short duration 4' wakes. With the reverse transom on the Ta...
