Re: PG25 or GS28

One last help for you. Panga Ron built a Panga 25 and his build site is at PG25 Panga Build down in the Builders section. You will need to do a search to find it. He uses his off the coast of California. Just click on the pink titles of one of the answers to open up all the answers to get the full a...

Re: Texas Flats Boat

Thanks cape man am glad Richard pitched in. He has more experience than any one in the XF's. Do you think 4" is enough as he has a 75HP or should 6" be used with the higher 115HP-150HP. I would really like Jacques opinion on this. Tunnels are so dang finnicky. :D

Re: Texas Flats Boat

Thanks, Tom. I sincerely appreciate the info. Talked to two other dealers yesterday and both recommended 150. I hope you won't hold it against me if I go that route! :) Still trying to do my homework on it, though. No problem. Took some time though looking at the stock fiberglass flats boats. The 2...

Agreed but a great build of a large Panga.

Re: Texas Flats Boat

Just had a thought does any one out there know what the set back should be on an XF22 and tunnel with a 115HP motor be?

External structure: keel, skeg, bilge runners, rubbing strakes at sheerline. You taking a sail this year on...

Re: Texas Flats Boat

The 6" set back is pretty much standard now there have been plenty of the XF's built now. The person to ask is Jacques before you order yours since he designed the tunnel. It may need to even be 8" with the XF22, so send an e-mail or call and talk to Jacques. He is easy to talk to. Or e-ma...

Re: Scupper ?

You could always get a round inspection port with a screw lid. They get up to 8" in size. Seems overkill to me and it will weaken the side and look like crap but if you need to really clear a deck... You should never use side scuppers anyways. :D :lol: I have seen never use side scuppers state...

Re: FS19 (-5%) in GA

Guy that is really great looking good. Which lake are you on down there. I'm just over the boarder in NC. It is cold up here in the mountains. Document your performance. Speed at rpm so we know what that boat can do with your 90 Suzuki motor. :D
