Free Boat Building Plans / Re: Flats skiff with a Tolman Transom: jallii skiff
« Last post by KenB on March 22, 2023, 09:13:11 PM »
Jallii! You've been pretty quiet! Im getting close. Minor set back with the engine harness... turns out that my 'new' engine was old enough to have the old 8-pin not the new 14 pin harness, so I had to order an adaptor. And also there is a difference between gen1 and gen2 merc cables. And no adaptor kit. But there is a uflex k35 adaptor that works the B185 console mount box for gen1's... we went through all of the mercury console mount boxes but none of them fit because I used the CLC peeler console measurements and its too narrow at the top, for anything but this uflex guy. I should have known something was up when I noticed that CLC actually sells the uflex box. Next time I make one of these consoles, I will widen it enough to get a mercury box to fit.

I bought one of these for my Jallii Flats skiff project. Was impressed with the price. Was not impressed with the instructions, but I have done baystar and uflex hytech kits before so it should work. The nice thing about the home despot card is the 24 months of no interest. I also bought another 15 sheets of 1/2 marine ply (~$150/sheet so more than bolger plywood's $125 1/2 meranti... but its free for two years!):

Between the Baystar and the uflex hytech, I would say the hytech was all around better. Uflex makes the mercury branded steering stuff, but the hytech kit was $700? at west marine, versus over $1400 for the same parts but mercury branded. Also, I think the baystar helm is different from the seastar, while the uflex helm is the same as their big one.

Anyway, I plan to use this vevor stuff on my widebody skiffs, with merc 60hps. The main reason to use hydraulic over the 4.2 NFB is that you have a lot more freedom routing the tubes, versus the giant steering cable that needs to have very gradual bends (and thus has to come out of the corner).  And also you don't end up ordering 2 different sizes of cables even though you measured everything like 6 times... then losing money selling the wrong sized cable on ebay. Because you cant get a refund for the NFB cables after you open them.

Glad you are going to be on the water soon!

I bought some marine charts from poison arrow a few years ago and wonder if you are the person and if so, are you still doing this?

Gorgeous boat, and I have seen Anthony’s work up close and personal.  This is a quality boat with an exceptional combination of motor and electronics, and a more than fair price.  I am building the same with a cuddy, and I am almost six years into my build with my own labor, and my costs will probably be comparable.

If you have Tolman aspirations, buy this boat!

No worries on the delay. I’m down in Portland now so that would be a long drive. Hopefully someone closer can use them. If work takes me up that way soon I will see if they are still available. Thank you
