New member and new old boat project.

I was thinking it time once again to post some info on my build here. So after thinking about what to post I have decided to make it like a boat test report. First off the boat was stable on the water even with 2 people fishing out of it. The front deck is large enough to stand on and fish. The boat...

New member and new old boat project.

The boat is stable while standing and fishing off the front deck, it runs out at 21mph with the 16hp Suzuki clocked with GPS. I will be changin...

14' Mirrocraft semi V project

No its just pine, I think. I am going to seal it with Thompsons. I realized that my transom plate is too narrow so I am going to redo it and copy "boaters" jack plate. I cant wait to get it painted and get my new Yamaha on it. If your looking at my jack plate be sure to look at it on the finished p...

The black gooo / glue is windshield urethane, holds 600lbs per sq inch and dampens any vibration. If using this method be sure your tubes are clean, I hit all my joints with an 80 grit grinding wheel and wiped with a paint prep. Also be sure to set your drill clutch so that the screws are not overti...

new boat, now trolling motor conenctions get hot

What was the condition of the battery? as voltage drop the amp draw will increase, but the CB should trip if it is overloaded. I would look at heavier going to a heaver wire.
