motor eight

you can figure this out yourself by using the USCG formula which factors in both weight and horsepower of the motor, plus you'd have the added benefit of being legal if ever checked (which nobody cares about on here) here's a good link for how to do the math (it's easy) https://www.tinboats.net/foru...

Need Your Thoughts - 20hP motor on 16foot

my de-restricted honda 9.9 (~13.5 hp) pushes my 16' duranautic (deep V) to 19 mph with just me aboard. runs 13 with two other fishermen. no problems planing. you will be perfectly fine with a 20 hp, as long as you match the prop correctly. with lower horsepower motors on bigger boats, it is extremel...

Do you use the kill switch cord?

view the results for an image search for -->" boat propeller injury " (NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART, maybe NSFW) and you will never run without your kill switch properly attached again. to me, it's just as important as a seatbelt in the car or a helmet on the motorcycle. the only outboard that i still...

Need help tuning setup

sounds like you might need to change prop pitch. put a tach on the motor and see if it's running up into the correct WOT RPM range. if you don't have a tach, you can get one on amazon for $25.

Is this corrosion?

The problem with styrofoam is that if it gets any gas on it, it just disappears, and dissolves away, there are better alternatives out there today. (styrene foam, Styrofoam is actually a trade name I believe) the XPS boards (blue, pink, or green insulation boards) that most people on here are using...

Removing thru-hull drain tubes?

they are swaged (expanded) in place so the easiest way to get them out is to crush them back down a bit so they fit back through the hole to do that, stick a sawzall through the drain and make a few slices from the inside almost through the wall of the drain tube to the rest of the transom. then cru...

i use that stuff (mostly from political signs, etc) for free target holders at the range. i really don't think it will hold up to being walked on though.

i think that's a hell of deal you just got there. that trailer alone would probably fetch 700-1000$ out here. good stuff, keep us posted on your progress, i love seeing the bigger tins.

Jet Sled Rebuild

i know it's probably what you were trying to avoid, but you need to put some screws from the inside of the hull into that transom saver. 3m 5200 is not suitable for bonding polyethylene (HDPE's what that cutting board is made of). if you look at the specifications, they actually list the shear stren...
