OB Props with HUGE 'holes' in the blade surface ... faster to spool up, plane & WOT!

Props with holes built into the blade surface - and not just into the prop hub - who'd of thunk? https://boattest.com/Sharrow-Engineering-Propeller Better hole shot, significantly faster to plane, better mid-range economy and faster WOT ... whaddya think? 1. Performs significantly better at idle. 2....

6/2 duplex marine wire

To Riverdog ... ‘like’ and ‘need’ are 2 entirely different discussions. ABYC doesn’t require it. For 40-years I’ve been rewiring saltwater and ‘offshore’ boats using single wire heavy ‘cable’ and only use the duplex for maybe size 10 AWG and smaller. I have yet to have even ONE reported failure in ...

6/2 duplex marine wire

You DON’T need duplex, run individual good marine heavy AWG cable or wire and tape together every foot or so as may be needed. Make sure your ampacity can handle the maximum worst case amp load, for the length of the run & recall for AWG determination & ampacity, the ‘run’ is consider getting from b...

Save the Chesapeake Bay’s most vital fish ... & no, it’s not a striper!

In the article it says a striper is also known as a rockfish. I've never heard a striper called that before. We have what are generically called rockfish that have nothing in common with striped bass. Must be a regional thing. Or, I've led a very sheltered life. It is a ‘regional’ name for sure, as...

Battery terminal connections

FWIW I throw a SS split lock washer down on the battery post 1st, as the bottom of the post isn’t threaded and a large ring terminal could have a poor connection otherwise. Agreed, no wing nuts ... otherwise known as a “really good way to blow out an expen$ive stator”! 64210B89-D81C-44A9-A074-F78EB8...

Transom support bracket rivets

Solid rivets preferred, but SS bolts will work. For that, grease the bolt body and slip some adhesive-lined heatshrink on it, to fully prevent the SS from contacting tin, also using nylon washers on each side.

Transom support bracket rivets

FYI, that part you refer to is typically called the ‘knee’.

Sure, use bolts, but I would grease the heck out of the bolt where it goes through the wood and then add nylon washers under the bolt head & nut to insulate/separate the aluminum from the SS fasteners.

For anyone STILL not convinced Pressure Treated wood is an issue with an aluminum boat.

Well yes, but not so fast ... as UNcoated wood cores can cause the same corrosion issue! YES - PT will corrode tin; it is a well known fact. YES - Use of stainless steel fasteners in aluminum will cause the tin to lose electrons to the SS, a more 'noble' metal, i.e., galvanic corrosion. BUT - In th...

Where do you keep your Boat?

Have had boats in saltwater going on ~50-years now, maybe 45 of those years for boats I've owned. Many have been tins, as even if I have a big FRP offshore boat, I keep a tin skiff at the Club dock 24/7 from APR through OCT; in fact I just pulled them last weekend for the season. I never had any iss...

This is why I seldom post questions on here.
Why say that? As MrGiggles is correct, as to be a deepV the deadrise must carry all the way to the stern.
