    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters


    ORIGINAL: Billk44

    You really want to use MAS or West epoxy inside also. These will flow into the nooks and crannies and strengthen the overall. This especially true for rigger tubs. I even use carbon veil in the engine compartment to minimize any chance of separation.
    do you suggest a carbon veil in engine compartment on a bullitt hydro??? i am to the point of gluing transom on and sealing interior..
    thanks, Rick

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    I am not a pro on Thunderboats but I do not think it needs that kind of reinforcement. However, on sport hydro I do it just to keep it rigid. They do take a pounding. I know weight becomes an issue at times and especially in nitro hulls. Not all folks do this but I do. If you want an example of it, look at Neil's 67 rigger. I did the boat and the few extra ounces do not affect the speed. Ask anyone that saw this run..............

    Scott Parker is starting work on the pond tomorrow! He said he'll be digging on Saturday and all next week.

    It's going to be a cold weekend! I'll probably still try to make it to the island. If anyone else feels like it, let me know.

    The Bullitts are really nice running Thunderboats. You should have a blast with it.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Rick...I checked out the 'Bullits' photos. AWESOME!!! I give you a lot of credit for digging into a wooden build (2 no less) like you are. I'm no expert in building, but if it were me going through all this work, I would consider laying some carbon fiber cloth along the stringers in the area of the engine mounts as well as at the bulkheads where they meet the decking. Now, my experience is only with my fiberglass Thunderboat and Gas Sport Hydro hulls (both Aeromarine), but when these boats blow off they come down like a ton of bricks. It seems like the reinforcing around the cowl opening often separates first and then the decking is the next thing to crack. Maybe a wood hull is inherently stronger. (That has always been my thought on riggers). Maybe Tom can give you his opinion on using CF in the build. Roger C.

    thanks roger!! i have to say that these are some beautiful kits, i have to give Joe alot of credit!!! I have built several wood boats(deep-v's, hydros, tug boats,runabouts etc...)mostly old dumas stuff and these are far superior to anything minus the JAE.21... and are a joy to work on... bill-k suggested carbon fiber on bottom also... i sent Joe a e-mail to get his input... he has been very helpful with any questions i have had... we will see what he says, tom however wants light,light,light...lol... i think he is a hot-rod or somthing...lol... will post more pics as i continue, glad that photobucket thing worked!! thanks for the feedback!!!

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    They don't need any added reinforcement at all. A little cloth here and there won't hurt though.
    The hulls come in very light (maybe 16 pounds RTR) so weight isn't an issue.

    The only areas that I have had any crash damage from are the transom and cowling.
    Make sure that the cowling CAN NOT come off the boat in a blow over.

    As for the transom, when driving over other, slower boats, the transom can separate from the upper and lower sheeting.
    A little cloth and epoxy would cure that.
    The main thing to do is build the tail as light as possible for balance. Almost all Bullitts need nose weight.

    Mount the engine as far forward as the cowling will allow (spark plug hits if too far forward).

    Don't be too concerned about overall weight as some very competitive T Boats are 24+ pounds...

    Build looks awesome Rick!

    THANKS JOE!!!its a real nice kit!! i thought because of the design of the motor mounts being built into bulkhead 1,2&3 plus glued to the bottom sheeting that they would be very strong!! i may use some light cloth on the seam on bottom sheeting,and some carbon strands from bottom to transom and sides to transom joints...as i am sure we have all ripped the transoms off "going ashore"or running over the "slow" competition...lol... as for the cowling in a blow over.... who has any good ideas for latches?? THANKS FOR THE INPUT EVERYBODY!!!!!!Rick P.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    Rare earth magnet work really well and a very clean look. Thunderboat are really good looking boats. Don't run over anyone and don't run up on shore. Make certain the engine will shutdown when you need to. Most of all, practice your driving and control. The faster you go, the faster things pop up.

    RE: Central NEW YORK boaters

    I have to agree with Joe, a properly built boat doesn't need extra strengthening in the engine bay. As for the transom, you could add some glue blocks along the edges to increase the strength in this area.
    Getting back to you question on Z-Poxy, I'll never use it again. I found it to be brittle and not fuel proof when used in a sport 20 last year. I was able to remove all of it with a blunt edged metal bladed spreader and a Monokote heat gun

    You're doing a very nice job on your Bullitt Rick. Regarding weight, my boat weighs 18.5 pounds and it is competative.

    We TALKING gas Yes I agree with you with nitro. I got 2 tubs to build because of the Zpoxy. Sig resin is cheap and still works. But I redone my real boats floor with Mas & I have extra Rick
    I will come Sat or Sun.,we still got a shovel for you HJ
    I have a extra .21 and a .12 rigger kit ,that needs to be built. If you want to build. trade the Mas. if you want. Rick
    Also a good looking hull by the way, good job.
