Re: Engine Hookup

I disconnected from the engine and pulled out, then back through the motorwell opening and reconnected to engine. It was easier than I thought. Thanks again for the help.

Re: Where to start...

Iggy, I know exactly how you feel, maybe a bit overwhelmed, and your brain is constantly going. You've almost forgot what the wife said a second ago, cause you were daydreaming right, ya right, I know. I happened to me. Then I got the plans and opened them up, The first thing I thought was, Can I re...

Re: Where to start...

- Engine costs... I nearly dropped the whole thing when I discovered the price of a basic outboard. I still don't get that. Hi Iggy, I noticed you mentioned the cost of outboard engines a few times not believing how much they cost. I know they are expensive but there is a reason for this. These eng...

Re: Engine Hookup

Thanks for all your suggestions. I think I will try a disconnect at the engine first and try and pull the large plug through and reconnect after the engine is mounted on the transom. I bought the motor used a few months back and I believe it came off a boat witch did not have a motor well, It was op...

Engine Hookup

Hello, I have a question about hooking up a 1985 Johnson 30HP to my craft. The question is, I have one wire that is hardwired leading from the engine to the remote. In order to run this cable through the motor well opening, it will either have to be (1) cut and spliced, (2) taken off from the motor ...

Re: Thru Hull Fittings

I had to find some use for the golf balls I no currently use because I happen to suck at golf anyways...haha Can you imagine driving down the lake like this? Better have your bailing bucket ready in case a line breaks.

Thru Hull Fittings

Has anyone here tried this, it seems to work well. I took advice from someone on here and did use the 3M 4200 sealer. I used activated resin to seal the hole, then 3M 4200 to adhear and seal the fitting. I really hope this does not leak...lol Thank you.

Steering For Bingo

Hi Everyone, looking for advice for this question. My steering system calls for a 3 & 1/4" hole to be drilled in the dash for the teleflex rotary system I have. As you can see, I have no dash yet, I was just thinking ahead. The masking tape represents the center of the structural beam. The Beam is 5...

Re: Bingo

Hi, thanks for the ideas, I did use a 1" hole saw to drill the holes for the tubes, the spade bit was too rough on a scrap. Has anyone ever put these brass tubes in with just thickened epoxy?? Would that not seal out the water? What would be better I wonder, Epoxy or something like 3M 5200, which if...

Re: Bingo

Very nice, I like the console with the drink holders, I will have to incorporate something to that nature either on the sides or the dash. I was also thinking about an inexpensive Marine stereo as well. Sorry, my pics didnt work last time, I will try again now. I have since turned the boat over and ...

Re: Bingo

your Bingo looks good nothing 25. I have a few more screw holes it seems in mine. He is a couple more pics with the decks on. I was thinking of a cedar Bench seat for mine keeping the wheel in the center to keep the boat more balanced if it were just one person in it. I was also thinking solid wood ...

Re: Bingo

ty vupilot, I started putting it together in the beginning of April. Mostly just on weekends as I had to work during the week. I had most of the parts already cut out in the past winter sitting in my shed waiting. I was thinking of a mostly yellow & black (black as secondary), or red and white, (whi...

Re: Thank You

Very nice Boat , Congratulations.

I believe the Hull did not have enough power. Whats HP rating on the Hull. I'm building the Bingo, and it looks a lot lighter than the squirt. Bingo weighs in around 250lbs, I'm putting a 30hp on mine and its rated for a 40HP.

Just my 2 cents.

Mark
