Re: Stainless slab on hull

Is the boat made of stainless or just a sheet. I know someone that has removed stainless from a few boats. Plugged holes with rivets. Some got steel flex, I think one got poly.

Re: Bosch jigsaw blade broke and stuck???

I like mine, have had it for years and it has seen some abuse. Blades are a lot easier to find now than when I got mine.

Re: Trailer Tires and Wheels?

I used them on my last trailer and I use them on a 20 foot seacraft. I like how low they sit and only have trouble with them when they get low on air.

Re: Finally-I'm building my boat

Depends on material you use. 6061 you can use. 7075 is too hard. It will crack if you weld it. 7075 isn't as bad at bending. The tool you asked about is a cleco.

Re: Bosch jigsaw blade broke and stuck???

I have this same jig saw and love the way it cuts. Most of the time when I break a blade I just loosen it up good and pull the trigger and it comes out. When it does't tweezers usually work. Try the biggest cotter key you can get in it and turn.. Maybe try to break it loose with a ice pick.

Re: Fuel pump, electrical or mechanical?

What you really need to do is to not run ethanol. That motor will treat you right a lot longer with proper fuel.

Spend more time on body work and paint. It will look a whole lot better and you don't have to worry about drag.

I would love to have a crane truck to help with the lifting, You shouldn't have any trouble getting it back together. Don't forget to count the tools.

Re: Convince me to build a BMW airboat!

A 13 to 14 foot glass over wood and 95 HP to push it. Your asking a lot out of that BMW. I would think .090 aluminum in the 10 to 11 foot range would be a better fit. Maybe a 10 foot Gore type hull.

Re: Convince me to build a BMW airboat!

If your looking for 90 hp why not just use a Continental PE60? You don't need a gear box and you don't have to listen to it turn 7250 for 95 HP.

You might want to add a cable to catch it if it comes off. It will save prop. More than one have come loose.
