Getting There

Postby Fastjeff » Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:16 pm

Was able to run the cav plate just under 4 inches above the pad last year, but the temp shot up so fast I saw the needle move! The water intake was on the cav plate, so I now moved it to the trim tab.  (The idea is not mine or original: a really smart guy on the BRF site thought it up.)  

Come on Spring!

The boat's name actually is "Madmelex" for my 3 brand daughters.

Hummm.... It's actually DInk II, Hull # 2. Amazingly, I didn't make one modification to its hull all last year!  (Make 8 different hulls for Dink I, however.)

You might his:  An easy way to measure cav late height.  Beats using a straight edge and a ruler.

The ones I see for race boats go off of the prop shaft to the bottom.

Thumb screw clamps onto propeller shaft and guide extends under the skeg to the boat bottom, parallel to the propshaft...  Made for racing boats so they may not clear your skeg, but would probably be OK to just lay it next to the skeg since top edge is centerline of propeller shaft.

I bought a pair of beautiful aluminum pulleys for my boat from those guys.
They make nice stuff!
