Re: E32 prop shaft sizes-dimentions

Luis,
I think prop shaft diameter is mostly related to which engine was installed in your boat.
A 1" shaft is fairly standard for this size boat; my 27' boat has a 1" shaft too.

The shaft length...

Yes, it is probably the float valve/needle that needs...

Re: E32 prop shaft sizes-dimentions

Luis,
Welcome. I'm pretty sure your shaft will be 1" with the Universal 5424 engine - so called "Atomic diesel". One way to confirm this is to get below the cockpit with a caliper & measure the...

Re: Fellow Four Eyes dealing with rain

Re: Interlake or Flying Scot

I never raced my Lightning so my experience is quite different from Mr. Ruben Esq. The Lightning I had was made by Clark, not a prime mfr per se, and was from 1976 according to the folks at the...

I don't think you have been exactly "negative" councilor Rubin. You have strong feelings about the F Scott and have given well thought out replies to backup your assertions.

Re: Catalina 27 RPMs drop to zero

Yup.
Look for a wire coming off your alternator that runs to the tachometer.
This wire is likely not very well connected - electrically or mechanically.
The alternator provides the engine rpm...

Re: Rebedding a coaming

Butyl is the way to go.
I'd bed the entire bottom surface of the coaming where it joins the deck and the screw/bolts hold it down.

Re: High speed ferry vs. race fleet

And a ferry is commercial traffic too.
The race organizers apparently did not consider this aspect.
We frequently have to give way to a tug & barge(s) crossing our race course.

Re: Tornados/Severe Weather (Inland Lake)

Small is a relative term. Frankly, any lake that is not a Great Lake will be "small" or smallish, if you prefer compared to the big water of a GL or ocean.

I wonder if it would work with polyester resin as well?...
