Re: Steve's Boat

Resin wax, gel etc came from The Glassfibre Shop in Pompey. Also known as Wilsons.


The two layer matt we bought as an offcut from Ocean Ribs. Obvioulsly they make a good boat.

That stiched matting matt was a dream to use. I think if you called ocean Ribs they would tell you where to get it from. Get it mail order.

Re: Steve's Boat

Steve,

Now here is an idea for better performance on the Donzi

http://www.arneson-industries.com/br...conversion.htm

They have an 18" Donzi doing 120MPH

and before you say anything No i am not thinking of asking for them on the Hunton

NO can do, you need the bravo stand off boxes or the engines will be about 18" too high.

How much is the conversion kit per side?

Re: Steve's Boat

I actually emailed them saying what do i need for a new build with Yanmah 315 diesels and this is what they came back with. I would have thought that they had priced for everything ???

but not really an option for me as have not got that sort of money left over.
Guess also it would not be possible to then use the Drystck operation in Southampton as the boat would be too long with those drives on.

Might just go with the straight through exhaust option instead

Ian they are not good all-purpose drives.

Imagine towing a ringo o rttrying to use a bathing platform ladder with those props rightup on the surface.

Surface drives dont work very well off the plane.

Caught out in big seas thats when you need them to work at their best!

Extra's...

Full canvas package.

Bimini top.

A pair of K PLANES.

Re: Steve's Boat

yeah straight through pipes a must IMHO, and decent trim tabs possibly too.. no idea how much to fit, and suppose they could be retrofitted quite easily afterwards... not like the straight through pipes.

That is very true had forgotten about the towing aspect of things i was getting carried away, Hunton will fit the straight through exhausts thats not problem.Canvas package they advised but for time being will leave out. just rearranging the finances at moment

Re: Steve's Boat

And just think
No boat park fees and how would the harbour master classify it as well for harbour dues.

Not sure about speeding up the Arun at 17Kph what would your excuse be if caught speeding.......................
