Re: Welding conduit

Here is a trick I learned from Ronnie Thibodeau and Mark Robicheaux. When building your hoops, cut a stick in half and weld to each end of a full stick. Then make your bends. Where it's welded at is straight and no pressure is on it. I welded mine with a gassless mig. Holds up just fine.

Re: belt box squeaking

If a belt has a lot of heat checks and stretch marks.it with make noise. When I was running boats for a living I always gave the belt box 1 or 2 shots of grease everyday. No belt is perfect. Could be from a bad batch rich.

Give her a shot before each ride buddy. See if it helps. Also, a bad belt will squeak.

Re: Anybody swinging a big wood paddle prop on geared carmot

A buddy of mine had a 350 2 bolt with a 1.6:1 belt drive on a 15' all 3/16 aluminum Hull swinging a wooden paddle. It ran anywhere we needed to go with a full load.

Re: Jb weld vs. gasoline

I am really not sure about that particular area. I know my dad reworked a cylinder on our old outboard (Evinrude 115) with JB Weld and it held up fine. It was a small area though, pitted really bad. If I were you, I would listen to blown480. He's been around the block a few times.

Man that looks great! Makes me want to try my hand at a wood or aluminum hull. Have you run it yet? The best feeling in the world is riding a boat you build yourself! :salute: No not yet. I have to finish the details. I.E. hook up the gauges, fuel pump, fuel tank, paint, so on and so forth. I got i...

Schmidt Aviation makes them. They use a starter off of a Toyota Supra I think. Around 450 for the starter and the bracket.

Re: New pictures of my build...FIXED IT!

If it has a leak, it will only leak into that chamber. There are 18 seperate chambers in this hull. The 3 on each side are sealed. The rest all tie into each other. Even if i pop a hole in it it still should float.

Re: New pictures of my build...FIXED IT!

I think I read in another post it's around 500lbs total? if so, thinking you only need around 300 lbs thrust to get it to move pretty well on dry. So, around 80hp or so? Sure looks good to me, you've done good work in the back yard! Yep, 500lbs is a rough estimate. Maybe a little more, but it isn't...

Re: New pictures of my build...FIXED IT!

Russ, it's very light. I can pick it up (partially). One side anyway. How it will hold up will be another story. I am hoping to be able to throw the gas to it from where it lies and it takes off. I will know soon enough.

Just a reminder to everyone watching. This is a BACKYARD build. No special tools. I even made my own jig to bend my cage hoops. If I can do it, just about anyone else can. I started this build in November of last year and I am getting close to being finished. If anyone wants any help or advice to bu...

Re: New pictures of my build...FIXED IT!

I am getting closer. I have the cage fitted and the rudders in place. They ended up being a little closer to the hub than I wanted, but I think 5 inches will be fine. This boat is not near as heavy as I thought it would be. With the engine mounted I am still able to pick up one side of the boat. I c...
