  • just wanted to let you know ive seen you're comments about painting the anodes, and we will fix that up next time we are out at the boat. We were following what was done before and apparently that was the wrong way. I thought all they needed was a clean connection between the metal they were protecting but after doing research its clear they'll do better without paint on them, easy fix!

    • @chase weeks Speeding in America? With a hatchback? Isn't that illegal? What was your maximum road speed again? And a race on public roads between two complete strangers is of course completely a-social behavior. But then again, what would you know about social behavior anyway?

  • Change the bearings now. Most yards have a tool that you do not have to pull the shafts to change them. If they don't find one that does.

  • I am just curious, what are you going to do too offset the weight loss to keep the boat in trim/ i think the boat will be stern light and bow heavy as well as riding higher in the water . This may make the boat poor to handle as well as top heavy and prone to rolling in heavy swells.

  • Zinc anodes are there to protect the metals - rudder, props, shaft, trim tabs, etc. - from galvanic corrosion, "which occurs when any two dissimilar metals are physically or electrically connected and immersed in water." Do not paint them, as many have said in these comments. Painting them will prevent them from doing their job, and your metals will corrode as a result, which defeats the purpose of the zincs. You should only paint the metal with Prop Speed, or any other metal paint specific to marine use. Your bottom paint is ablative, which as you said, is designed to come off over time while preventing barnacles, etc. from connecting to the hull. It will not stick to the metals and will quickly come off.

  • 16:17 You're defeated the purpose of the zinc in terms of corrosion when you paint them.... literally just looked into the comments and I wasn't going to post this, but for long term it's important that they get salt water to control the corrosion. You can't stop corrosion but the purpose is to reduce it to a least expensive item. I would just throw in the money for at least 1 new prop, it looks like it rotated over something harder. It's like watching bosn mates gundeck maint. all over again.

  • Enjoy your videos! However, you should check out FIstream for some instructional videos. It could help prevent you from doing things twice... like painting the anodes, putting the wrong primer, adding an oil catch can that didn't work... and so on. Boats are an expensive, time consuming project. Don't guess on how to do things! Ever hear teh expression there is never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it again?

  • You mention stiff shafts and the set screws. I think they hold the cutlass bearing into the shaft bracket. They are not connected to the shaft. Shafts generally are stiff to turn by hand.

  • Hey, dude! I'm a marine techician. make sure you degrease your anodes before you put them in the water. also, your brushing tool will put a lot of iron(from the brush) and copper(from the paint) on top of the anode, and essentially render it useless.

  • The reason the prop shaft is hard to turn probably has more to do with the shaft seal at the other end. These are packing glands often used on the spindles of water pumps. There is an asbestos like rope inside these which the backing plate compresses against the shaft (the 2 bolts). On pumps they usually sit in a water bath for cooling but obviously this is not possible in a boat so I suppose it's a compromise between stopping the water and overheating the seal.

  • While you have it out of the water you may want to consider adding some underwater lights at the back. Also, see about having a extended swim platform added. A lot easier doing those additions when the boat is out. And i can promise you they will be worth it.. you can google different swim platforms.

  • It looks to me from the polished nature of the prop shaft that they have moved aft following removal of the engines allowing the non polished part to run in the bearing causing increased resistance.

  • Propellers in twin-engine boats are set to turn in opposite directions so that the torque created by each balances the other out. If both propellers turned in the same direction, you would feel it at the steering wheel--you would have to counter the torque by steering constantly in the same direction. Just wondering if you took this into consideration yet ( just keeping us on edge lol) ..marine engines one reverse rotates in twin screws.....

  • Paint looks good but your waterline is going to change quite a bit if you're halving the weight of your engines. I hope you can make the gassers work but please definitely run it all by a naval architect who will let you know if the boat will still be safe to handle with this much weight and C of G change. You might want/need to do stuff like resize trim tabs or shaft angle, or even add ballast to make sure it's still stable. People die in the cabins of unbalanced motorboats that flip every year. Hopefully you don't need to ballast back all the weight you reduced to keep things upright!

    Pablo MontoyaPablo Montoya2 kuukautta sitten
  • FYI support/ stablizer is called a strut. Red tint on strut is electrolysis may want to look into that. Am I right in assuming the white paint is made for props ie Prop-coat. Shafts should turn freely no transmission or shaft brakes so comparisons to other boats doesn't apply.

  • Those set screws just hold the Cutlass bearing in the prop strut. with the shafts pushed aft the way they are ,you probably have a corroded section of prop shaft in contact with the Cutlass bearing. push your shafts forward spray a little water on them for lubrication and see if they spin better.

I don't think any of these folks paid for the boat, or the engines you're putting in. I think it'll be badass. I've had large boats (not 40' long) with gasoline engines, and as long as they're purpose-built marine engines, and you take care of them, you'll be just fine.

  • I saw you videos concerning the (upcoming) swap of motors. You mentioned that you probably would need to add some extra weight to have the same balance. However, consider to have an extra clutch from transfluid (or similar) from Italy. This would give you a hybrid running on either combustion, electricity or both and even be able to use the the electrical engines as generators... There are probably a lot of companies out there who does something similar, the only reason I know of transfluid is, that i would like to have it myself but I am not really there yet (financially:) in my own project (larger engines... mtu 12v 396). Check it out at (I have no idea of quality from transfluid etc., but I like the concept).... still, you need a lot of battery power (adding a lot of weight...:)

I'm doing a reach out for support and/or prayers for my best friend, he is currently dying from cancer, and I am trying to help raise the money needed for burial cost. His condition has gotten worse today, and they are moving him into Hospice on Friday, the cancer is causing multiple organ failure and only machines are keeping him alive at the moment. If you cannot or do not want to donate, that's cool, just a prayer for his family and for him would work. Money raised will be used for casket, plot and headstone, around $3500 is needed.

  • Besides the zincs, should also not paint the hydraulic pistons on the trim tabs. That shiny stainless steel piston should have been masked off before painting. With paint on it, when you retract the tabs all the way, the paint may damage the cylinder seals and cause a hydraulic leak.
