Re: $500 REWARD

I disagree. More likely wanting a quick $200 from a scrap dealer for whatever rather than taking the time, trouble, and risk of trying to sell it for what it's worth.

The scrap guy no doubt knows what it is and it probably didn't get scrapped.

Re: Electrolosis on Thurman hull

J B Weld and other epoxys are tough as nails but won't (I don't think) have the strength over a wide area that you need.

Why not lay a couple of layers of fiberglass - or better yet, carbon fiber, over the hull and then poly over that? I bet it would be strong as a mo' fo' and last forever.

Re: Blade performance

I can understand that the 3 blade R would work better for you guys, it is hard to understand how a prop can level out and stop pushing,... There comes a point where the windage losses due to increased rpm start to become big enough to offset the extra push due to increased rpm. I think the width an...

Poly is very heavy. If you're not hitting rocks and crossing roads I wouldn't recommend it.

Re: Electrolosis on Thurman hull

I doubt rubber will stop the galvanic corrosion. You need to use a couple of zincs to act as sacrificial anodes to stop it.

Ballpark is about 375 lbs. But remember the boat in the water is displacing water too (although probably not a lot) so it's "weight" won't be as much submerged as it would be at the surface.

Seagrams got bought out by the giant Diageo that is based in England. They own a sh!t-load of stuff including Guiness, Jose Cuervo, Smirnoff, and Captain Morgan.

The Lone Star brand name is owned by Pabst who no longer brews a single drop of beer. It's all contracted out - mostly to Miller, which is now "SABMiller", SAB standing for "South African Breweries".

If you're going to run dry with four up you're going to need a gearbox and probably a new prop too. And I still think that's asking a lot of a 4.3.
