Dave,

If you'll let me know about how much you're going to lift, how wide (span) your frame will be, and if you want to put a hoist trolley on it, I can size you're top beam for you.

Muffler or Not, That is the Question.

I'm building an inboard runabout. I'm going to use a 125 hp diesel. I'll be in and out of a condo/marina. I've seen pictures both ways. I don't care to be loud. I'm told the Yanmar I've picked is "quiet". The muffler in the West Marine catalog is so large it would be a problem. Problems, Problems, P...

I would not want to do this myself. But, the only thing that comes to me is to use a wet method. Put resin on the bare wood. Wait until it starts to set. While the resin is very tacky press the fabric in place then wet it out. Hopefully, it will stay up. I'd work small areas and just learn to live w...

Shop Crane

Wondering how you're going to handle setting your engine?

I was going to rent a shop crane. But, harborfreight.com has a 2-ton one on sale for $150.

For that I can buy it, use it, & sell it, or keep it.

Just info.

Thanks Mr. Hot Rod. Factored into the calculation is resistance or slip. 10%, 15%, 20%... The other curves show power to weight ratios. It is a tricky calculation. But, an important one. Do your homework. Over loading the engine voids the waranty. Bill P.S.: I learn a lot in these exchanges. A lot o...

I plan to use a Yanmar 125 hp in a 20'-6" runabout.

yanmarmarine.com has the specs. If you're going to get any speed you need to be looking a top rpm. The gear ratios that are available may also have an effect on you.

Just to Clarify

The 5.0 amp is a great saw. The problems I had early on were with another cheap saw. The Bosch would have made short work on the frames. Buy good tools from the start or you'll just have to do it later. That goes for sanders, too. If you do cold mold you're going to make a lot of saw dust. Make it e...

Hey Bob,

There is a site called boatdiesel.com. For $25 per year, they have some good calculators.

You enter max. RPM, reduction, hull type, max weight, prop dia. & length of waterline.

They calc. max speed, prop pitch and fuel consumption.

It is easy to look at different options.

Saws

I have the 5.0 amp model. It is really nice to use. I wish I had bought it from the first. It would have saved time and money. The problem I had cutting two pieces at a time was that it was slow and the blade would bend off on the lower piece. Finally, found it better to cut the first then use it fo...

Dave,

You can remove one vote from blocking. :oops:

I didn't see it as blocking real posters. I just saw the porn post being blocked.

We seem to have good folks coming in from Hot Mail. I wouldn't want to lose them.

Great job! Go. I really like that plan holder behind you in the picture. Also, West System epoxy says that you can get chemical bond as long as the first/previous coat is in its inital cure (will dent with finger nail). West also says you can apply over the amine brush during this time. The Canoe Cr...
