Re: Cadillac inspiration in Boats

Thanks for sharing. We saw the Cadillac Sea Lark in Downtown Disney Orlando. '59 Cadillac tail light on the Torpedo.

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

I guess I didn't say that the engine should be raised. I merely stated to ensure it was high enough that water was not easily ingested.

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

They weren't using any risers in the exhaust. It will be a good idea to make sure the engine is high enough to prevent water from backing up into the engine when water surges towards the back of the boat when slowing or stopping. Flappers in the transom outlets helps, too.

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

It should be simple enough to make a covers for the one exit and fabricate the end exits with the correct size tube for your exhaust hose of choice. Any welder or shop could use the end covers as a pattern or modify the covers. Should be cool to see another classic motor powering a boat.

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

Here is a link to a flathead using the Glenwood headers. This installation is what I am used to seeing. The endplates are incorporated so one casting will accommodate right and left applications and a variety of configurations. Scroll down to see the flathead engine. https://www.jalopyjournal.com/fo...

Re: WithDrew's Ski King

Any chance to get more views? Marine versions I have seen have one end cap replaced with an outlet. Unable to see to much on the bottom.

Re: Malahini Transom dimensions

You can design seat backs and bottoms that are removable to allow access.

Re: Rick's Zip build, UK

Looking good. Keep posting and ask questions. For a long shaft motor, remember to bump up the transom instead of notching it for a short shaft. Also, consider adding a couple degrees of tilt to the transom. It seems like the Zip needs more bow down trim when aft weight gets excessive and it runs out...

Re: Guitar builder looking to build a boat

The Zip is a fun project. Keep it simple and light and 20hp will be fine.

Re: What should I have on board a small power boat?

Your best source is a DNR rule book for your state and a US Coast Guard book for boating regulations. There you can find specific requirements for your particular boat. These can also be found online. Happy boating.
