LOL Bob

So I ordered the Basic road Runner trailer 440# today.  The only upgrade is a bracket for the spare tire and LED lights.

I should be able to pick it up on the 24th.  That is fast service!

The trailer is made just outside of Vancouver and is delivered to a dealer north of Seattle.

Time to run I think I see Bob's neighbor coming.

GD, It took a few hot showers and a couple hours to get warm. If your hitting NJ with the skiff this year let me know. Exit 58.Or anyone else too.

Polar, No mud,brand new pump kit. I've got good water pressure and muffs were tight to intake holes...doesn't make sense to me either . Maybe i'll try a different set of muffs at end of season. If it screws up no big deal than.

Does the o/b have a hose attachment for flushing like our 1999 Yamaha 100 4s? We've run most of our 2s o/b's over the years with rabbit ears with no problems. It's funny as we've never changed a 2s waterpump but change our 4s every couple years. B & B

Luk, It's got a garden hose fitting which I use religiously after every outing. Manual states not to run motor while using it though, just for a static engine off  flush. I generally change pump every other year. One time let it go for 3yrs and 2 of the pump housing bolts sheared but left enough stub to get sharp vise grips on.

Did you suck up some mud?
I have flushed my mercury for last 10 years with earmuffs after every trip. Almost 1000hrs. That included a period of 1 year that I didn't use my boat.

All my Kiwi mates and at local yacht club flush motors with earmuffs including yamahas.
Can't see a problem

The 18 or 20' skiff would be perfect for Monterey Bay.  I fish my 23' widebody out of Bodega bay, I often see an 18' Tolman center console fishing in the fleet.  These boats, are perfect for our coast in reasonable conditions.  The boat can probably handle bad weather better than me.

Lyle sounds like you are a great guy to know for when you have a problem our on the water. 

53 is cold for a shorty.  I've done it but only in my younger days for the promise of good surf.

I cut mine in on the 8 foot section. 

The forward 6mm panel should lay flush with the inside of the hull, long side of the scarf toward the transom.  The outer lamination will lay right on top, scarf cut the same just make the panel a bit longer. You can trim it to fit as you laminate.

General Discussion Tolman Skiffs / Scarfing bottom panel
« Last post by backatit on May 16, 2017, 10:43:24 AM »
Hi All,

A quick question.  I am scarfing the bottom panel plywood up now making up the 12'  12mm panel.  I am using Okoume so the side up or down face  doesn't matter.  My question is two fold, when I cut the  second scarf that will receive the 6mm do I cut in on the short section ( of the made up 12 foot panel ) or the 8' section?  And do I want the scarf to be cut on the opposite face than the first scarf that joins the two piece of 12mm?  My guess is that long or short section doesn't really matter  and cut scarf on opposite face for opposing stress points on made up panel, but I don't know.

I appreciate any input

 Many Thanks

Tony
