Thanks guys. Glad I posted the question. I think I'll go with 5° even though I'm tempted to split the difference and go 8° because of Jim Shula's point about going forward.

I'll get some more pics posted as soon as progress allows.

Peter,

I need to clarify something.  It's probably too early and I haven't had my first cup of coffee yet.

When you say, "height", might you mean thick?  That is, 'How thick can the filet be?"  And, what part of the splashwell are you referring to?  Finally, do you plan to build the splashwell just like Renn describes?

As I think about it (hard work  :'( I should probably had a cup of coffee before attempting to write this),  I'll bet you mean the place when the floor of the splashwell contacts the transom.  So, your "height" means how high up the transom can you go before interfering with the outboard mounting holes. Do I now understand you correctly?

Sorry I don't have your answer but while on the subject of transoms/ splash wells. I know there are several threads on cutout size but I am looking for a definitive answer from anyone with Suzuki 140. I made my cutout 30" wide when I started the build, mostly out of confusion from the book, and I have found from research that the Suzuki clearance is 33".  Very easy fix at this stage, but my question is will the 30" still work? Is the 33 " clearance only for when the motor is all the way  up so it can turn all the way while in the cutout and not hit it?

Hei,
I am dry fitting my splashwell and would like to have rounded corners inside. The idea is to drain all water and to avoid any growth + easy cleaning.
Maybe an exaggerated filet or I could use my router to get a rounded profile to glue into the corners before glassing.
The question is: How much height can I use for the rounded corners without getting into any trouble when mounting the engine later on? I just have the dimensions from my small 20hp outboard and have no idea about larger outboard mounting clamps/brackets. Tried to ask one of the sales people, but it is winter and they have off season hours and reduced staff, no answer so far.
Thanks
Peter

Thank you Steve. Helena and I visited Bruce & Jean at their new house and had a great time. Much to be thankful for and Helena's youngest son was here so good visit. He thinks our new 'digs' are really different as he lives in Beverly Hills and all the madness of LA. No snow yet but soon I'm sure. Got wood burning stove in shop so I'm ready for winter. Knee replacement surgery Dec. 7. Oh boy.....B & B

We also has to adjust a bulkhead from 12 to 5. Frank warned us but not before one bulkhead was done.

I know I used 0 degree on my pilot house (cuddy/pilot house wall and rear wall).
Not 100% sure if I used 0 or 5 degree on the cuddy/anchor well wall.  My cabin looks good and I think it was easier to build with no angle.

I should have said that I like the look of 5° cabin sides better on the Jumbo. I really like some of the widebody full cabin boats with 12° sides.

Yup, I cut my front bulkhead of the cuddy 12* for my jumbo and then realized that the jumbo calls for 5* for the cuddy later on in the book. So I tweaked the front down to about 10* and cut the rear cuddy bulkhead at 5*. I actually like the look. It is not as boxy up front. This is one of those areas in the book that you have to read ahead and take notes on. There are several other "mistakes" I made due to the overlap of boats or not mentioning something that I am sure is "assumed". Easy fixes usually and sometimes it adds a different flavor to my boat making it unique.
