Re: ST21 'Skinnydip' build, and boating adventures, Noosa, Australia

The ugly edge is easy to fix with an epoxied on veneer. That said, I think your driver for the decision needs to be the "requirement" not the look or comfort in building. If you NEED the lightest possible boat then you need to seriously consider the foam core. If it really is about providi...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

What's currently in the space under the cockpit sole where an inboard would be installed? Has there been one in there at some stage? The "void" (that's what I'm calling the sad place where once an Atomic 4 resided) currently houses two improperly mounted house batteries and chargers. Ther...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Thanks cape man. One “method” of wiring that seems excessively popular here is running on large ground wire to a buss bar in the bow, and on aft. Then run individual V+ lines to switch panel and a short line to ground bus. I’m not sure I like that idea as it seems messier and requires more connectio...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Ground trunk for me. How are you calculating max amp on the ground trunk? Since most of my circuits won't be dedicated "forward/aft" (ex nav and cabin lights both have fore and aft devices) I was just going to make draw for wire size something stupid like "sum of all fuses". ......

Re: Port A XF 20

It's easier to just set each page to print view, "print" it, and save as a pdf. It's a shame there isn't just a button to download a whole thread. Someone let me know if there is a better way, we do seem to be on a newer version of the software since I tried this, unless it's just a diffe...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Thanks all. I've been going back and forth on electrical. I've been thinking of running as much duplex type runs from the breakers as possible instead of using the "ground trunk" method. The small size and wide open space makes it super easy for me to pull the duplex. Also, the duplex ensu...
