Re: 6/4 rough cut lumber for nominal 1" thickness

Resawing planks on a table saw could be potentially dangerous as you will be burying the blade deep in the wood. Any side stress will result in damaged wood, kickback, and jamming. Remember, while the front of the blade is coming down, the back is coming up, and the top is coming at you. A bandsaw b...

Re: Chinook - lengthening the cabin

I think the added weight will be over the center of buoyancy and C/G and shouldn't pose any issues.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

You don't need a battery box for an AGM battery. Secure mounting is necessary and insulating covers are required on any positive and negative posts. Odyssey made a nice holder for my battery. Maybe Optima makes one for yours. I used some 3" AL angle U-bolted to the stringers for the lift cylinders f...

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I think they are called Pegasus Racing in New Berlin. Sorry, I thought they were called Summit a while back.

Hey, I'm old and my mind is going! :lol: :lol: :oops: :oops:

Re: 20ft Texas Barrel

I like Summit Racing, too. Have one about 20 minutes away. Their stuff found its way into both the planes I built and two of the boats.

I think Ken nailed it. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Roberta's ZIP

It would be really difficult to send you all the photos as I have hundreds. Consult some of the other builders threads, but if you would like to see a specific phase of the build, I would post that.

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Not sure if your engine is a Mercruiser or other brand. Most newer systems, especially the newer EFI systems are wired pretty much the same. Mercruiser might have a diagram that could be helpful. When designing an electrical system think about what you want, what you need, how it should be activated...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

Here is a link to the Crusader engine installation. On pages 44 and 86 you will find information I described regarding the electrical system. There are several extra harnesses include for things like CAN BUS and digital controls I did not need or use. Some of this is common to all newer engines. Old...

Re: Key Largo Build in Charleston

There are many examples from various manufacturers showing fused circuits for gauges and tachometers. Relays relieve current loads from devices and provides a convenient method to control more complex systems. With 50+ years of working with voltages both AC and DC ranging from watch batteries to 345...
