Re: Seattle Barrelback progress

I have a Tahoe at 20-6 with a 4 cylinder diesel. Don't forget access to filters, belts, impellers and valves... It gets crowded back there.

Re: Hercules/Noyo Trawler "Prime Mover"

I had a 27' sailboat that weighed in at 8000#. It had a 1GM Yanmar. It would make 6.5 mph with 7.5 HP. But, I have been stopped by high winds. A little more power would be good.

Re: Stretching a Monaco

It is 10% of the total boat length applied aft of the stem. The stem doesn't change.

Re: Getting a smooth finish after the Fibreglass

Put 2 or 3 three coats of epoxy resin on top of the fiberglass. Not more cloth. Then you can sand it smooth without removing the cloth. If you get into the cloth you will see it. Just add a layer of resin and finish smooth. You will still need to coat with paint or clearcoat for UV protection.

Re: Steve B.'s ZZZIP Build

I use solid vinyl for the skegs. No paint scratch and it won't rot.

Each design is not totally unique. The methods are pretty much the same. Yes, it is nice to find someone on the same design. The people here will get you through. :D

Hazen

The 318 should be fine if it fits. What is the HP and gear ratio?

If you know Carla Houser there say hello for me.

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I did whitewater boating for a long time. I always said that the boat should come with the first scratch! They you didn't have to worry about it!
