Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Well... there a bit more delay here. Apparently not going to a doctor for a couple decades will catch up with you. Sunday night I had a "severe cardiac event". Luckily I knew something was brewing so I was already at the hospital when my body tried to give up on my brain. I have some metal...

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

Can’t believe they designed that car to perfect fit the lines of that pram. Seems like some car designer must build boats! I don’t think you will be disappointed giving the edrive those batteries. Look for a low voltage shutoff (I’m surprised the batts don’t have one built in). You should be able to...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

BTW, I’m thinking of getting a case of those bottles. That stuff vanishes way too fast. My head hurts already! If you keep drinking the hangover doesn’t get a chance to start… That’s what I keep telling myself. Mrs was thrilled I behaved myself. Birthday weekend is normally followed by “recovery we...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

There has to be more to the 63rd commit. Fess up :D I was just giving him some !@#$ cause he made a few comments about being old, getting old, etc when he's 5+ years YOUNGER than me! Good thing I only feel 63. BTW, I’m thinking of getting a case of those bottles. That stuff vanishes way too fast.

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

I think each bank is 24v@100ah (8 cells at 3.3g standard) so he has to run them in series to make 48v. Not sure if the controller/motor can be programmed to operate on 24v. The end state would be reduction in speed or run time (possibly both).

Re: Thru hull transducer in C17.

OWT, I’m assuming the hole is needed because you can’t shoot through composite panels. Does the transducer need to be contact with the water? The way I’ve seen this done is by building a solid plug (replacing the core) 2x the diameter of the TD then mounting the TD to the plug. I’ve also seen suppor...

Re: Jaysen's Helms 24

Hahahaha!!! I know I had a bit difficult time getting my eyes open at 5:30. I may have killed another couple glasses after you and Mrs Jeff turned in. Mrs and I were all “I wonder how we convince them to come back…” I’ll take credit for being able to not destroy some perfect pieces of fish, but they...

Re: Weighing a large boat

Are you running the 4 scales simultaneously? Assuming that there is a measurement error, it seems that the BH5 star is likely "out of plane" with the other measure points. The total weight would still be accurate but the distribution of weight would be off (you would have a heavy spot). I'...

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

Stay with the 48v EDrive. The error in this case is simple and not indicative of a real design flaw. You can add a low voltage shutoff (I can design one if needed) to basically disconnect the battery bank if it drops below a specific voltage. This would prevent recurrence for the same causal. That’s...
