NEW DynaMarine REVO Hull

Postby DynaMarine » Wed Dec 14, 2016 11:34 am

Well it's been quite some time since I've posted anything new and figured I'd share the latest hull to hit the floor. This new REVO will be 14' x 7'10, be 17" deep at the transom and weigh in just under 450lbs with rake.

Here's the details and some pics...
Bottom and transom: .125" 6061-T6
Sides and Stringers: .125" 5086 (1 center t-bar at 1.5" x 1.5" x .190")
Bulkhead: .100" 5086
Deck: .100" 5052

I'll update this thread with pics of the finished boats as well. We've got 3 of these in production, one getting a 700ci AC with Whipple, the other a blown LS. The 3rd is yet to be determined!

Thanks for viewing :thumbleft:

The laser cuts the ID of the hole out and then the dimple tool hits it to form the emboss Rich. This way we can choose to not punch the center out, or change the ID of the emboss to whatever we want.

Why are you using channel as stiffeners on the floor vs. t-bars?

Strength and weight, channel like this is stiffer than t-bar. The jet boat industry used to build boats using t-bars years and years ago. They've since switched to channel girders similar to these. Not quite as easy to bolt to as t-bar, at least for swapping existing riggings into...but it is stronger and same to less weight.

Shane,
Using channel like this makes sense as a builder for the reasons you stated. However, it is difficult down the road to work on the bottom as the channel hides strips of the hull that are now inaccessible under the channel.
Ie., straightening out a hull with channel vs. T- bars are two different animals.

Its like glueing on a uhmw bottom, its a real chore later to remove it when it needs servicing vs. uhmw that's been screwed on.

I'm only asking to understand.
Absolutely love the looks of the kit so far!

How would this hull perform with a 285hp 520 Continental ?

Have not built one with a 520 yet, but have done a 13'6 x 7'6 O-540 boat and a little 12'6 200hp AC boat and another 13'6 boat with a 200hp GM Ecotech w/Gearbox. The 540 boat was a 72-74mph boat with poly, the others obviously slower boat all ran damn good.

Mig'd or tig'd or you use both? My untrained eye can't tell. Interesting to see how all the parts fit together thanks for sharing. Does the gap under the front deck near the hull stay there? Looks like a trap for critters, junk, mud etc to hide. But I'm guessing this is more of an airboat one would keep polished and clean rather than beat up through the woods any way with this hull design correct? I like the Hulls you all have built they all look really nice none of my output was meant to be negative just asking questions...

We us both MIG and TIG on hulls. Sometimes it's easier to lay a nice weld with the TIG than MIG, and of course if we TIG'd everything it would take waaaaaay to long and put too much heat in places where we wouldn't want (like the bottom).

Most our bulkheads aren't the "floating" type, they extend all the way to the bottom of the boat...this one is just a tad different per the customer.

Thanks for the compliments on the boat, guys in the shop sure do like a pat on the back from time-to-time!

Went with 7 full and 2-partials on the first one. Redesigned the stringers some and going channel on #2.
