Wood boats are often pretty flexible until the deck goes on. The deck adds a lot of stiffness. Looks good. Doug

Walbro WT-257 or WT-1048. The problem is not necesarily in the carb tho. It could be one of the fuel lines or even in the fuel tank. Doug

The end of the tube near the motor needs to be supported somehow. You can buy what is called a T-bar that is made to support the shaft. 5-7 degrees down is a lot. I don't think I've ever run more...

It may be an optical illusion in the picture, but it looks to me like you have a pretty big angle down on the strut. I would make it parallel to the bottom. I also just noticed that you have a huge...

Did you have the ends of the ring lined up with the pin in the ring groove? Doug

Can't wait to see it. Let us know how it goes with the new engine. When you post click on "go advanced" and then "manage attachments" to post pics. Doug

If you do sharpen and balance a prop yourself use at least a dust mask. Most of these props are beryllium copper and the beryllium is definitely not good for you. Doug

I've never run one of these with a motor like you're using so I'm not sure what to suggest, but I wouldn't use a prop that needs a 3/16 shaft. Maybe try a X470 or X472. DOUG

I usually offset my prop 1/4" to the right. If I interpret your post correctly you need to offset the motor to the left side of the boat. How much of of the stringer would you have to cut away to...

With the engine you're planning on using I would set the center of gravity at about 28 to 30%. 1/3 of the distance from the stern(33%) would be good with a mod Zenoah. Yup, a gradual bend in the...

I've built all my boats using doorskins with no problem. You do have to seal the boat well inside and out with epoxy. I would guess that motor would get you to the high 30's to low 40's with the...

Definitely use epoxy. I used a Zippkits stinger drive on mine. I would not use dual rudders or rudder behind the prop. There is a small text file and build pics included with the plans. I hope you...

He says the boat is pulling to the left. A blunt prop would make it pull to the right.

2 turns on the low and 1 on the hi is a good starting point for a 257 carb. I used to run 644's all the time and I ran them with 3/4 turn on the low and 1 3/4 on the hi. A stock 644 is very different...
