New member, new project needs bugs worked out

Post by DirtyD »

Well, it’s been a while. Been prodding around here occasionally, and little done on the boat. Sealed the intake, I think I’m done fiddling around with intake grates and scoops. It hooks now, and ran 39 with two dudes the last time out. Next will be to strip it all down and shoot the inside with some spray lining...just have to bring myself to spend the money.
Here’s a gratuitous shot of the business end, as it’s gonna stay.

Ok..Boats stripped down for final welding and paint. Added a hatch up front, and for jollies I’m going to weld a bung on the intake for a pressure gauge (guess I’m not done making grates for it). Also, I seem to keep knocking paint off of stuff and polishing. The exhaust was the most recent item. Lastly, for now; I acquired another pump. If anyone can school me on the possibility of this working, I would appreciate it tons. The part number from the impeller says it’s a 10/22 pitch. Will this jive with the 587 I’ve got in the Boat, or will it not have enough balls to spin it? Thanks, and happy holidays.

I'm going to talk to my forum guy to see if we can do something with these pictures...Some setting to adjust them on the fly to spin them.

Nice job on the boat so far! :beer:

WOW! Very impressed with your quality of work. Very hard to find people with the talent and patience to put this together like you have.

What Rotax engine are you using?

What are the three different chrome tanks?

What method of welding are you using on the aluminum hull and boxes?

Thank you for the info. I was wondering why the speed was so low, now I see it is a 56hp engine. I am thinking to use a Rotax GTX 185 with Turbo on a 1860 aluminum boat.
