SBC Hardin exhaust snails, are they the same as other Hardin exhaust snails?

Sat, 04/15/2017 - 12:24
Hello all,
I'm looking at an old 17' '70 Cheetah with an SBC and Berkeley pump. I wasn't crazy about the thought of an SBC, but I am intrigued by the thought of not having an exposed engine. So, here's my question: The boat currently sits with Hardin logs & exhaust tubes off of the logs that go up over the transom. Can I trade these OTT exhaust pipes for any Hardin snails, or would I need to find SBC snails? The logs are present. I would want to run through transom exhaust tips, possibly trade these pipes for some snails to someone wanting to convert the other way, to OTT exhaust and build a padded vinyl covered wood & fiberglass engine hatch, to make a toddler/family friendly cruiser.

Boat & Trailer Registration

Sat, 04/15/2017 - 11:40
The company I have worked for is moving from northern California to Huntsville Alabama. Can't blame them. We are trying to decide whether to relocate there or use this opportunity to just get out of this fricken state. Other states we are looking at are Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Arizona,and Texas. I am trying to figure out what the boat, trailer, and vehicle registration fees and regulations are for these 6 states for the hardware that we have:

19' flatbottom and trailer
21' V drive cruiser and trailer
42' Enclosed gooseneck trailer
1988 GMC dually crewcab gas powered
GMC C7000 26' Toterhome currently registered as a motorhome

I appreciate any information to help us make the overall decision.

Cav Plate adjustment circle boat

Fri, 04/14/2017 - 20:05
I am in the early stages of sorting out a 75 Barron Sprint, boat is set up as a circle boat driving off the snout with a right handed rotation on the prop, Just starting to get some seat time, I have not touched the set up from the previous owner but currently the plate is set up completely flat across the boat (from side to side), and with the lock out set up in the mid position the plate is basically flat from front to back. I have seen several postings that say on a left handle rotation that the right side should be trimmed down slightly to counteract the torque, would the same hold true for a circle but reversed? I also notice that the lockout will allow me down pedal from the set position but given it is set so that it just starts to apply pressure at the midpoint I only have basically 4 positions to play with, I think I may be missing something on how this lockout is supposed to operate. Any thoughts appreciated. Attached Thumbnails

Engine Hatch build. 85 Kachina

Thu, 04/13/2017 - 12:08
So, I searched everywhere for something, anything on building an engine hatch on an old jet boat but only found like 2 things. There is really not that much info on size, shape, design, material or weight. I figured I would post some stuff about how I ended up doing it. I do not know if it's right way or even if there is a "right" way, but at least it'll give someone some ideas if needed. I wanted people to be able to walk across it so I went with mostly 2x4 framing with the exception of the starboard and port outside most framing, which i used 3/4 in plywood. The intake and carb stick up quite far from the compartment so I designed a cowl induction type scoop that is actually a second piece. After framing, I wrapped the hatch with polar fleece and applied poly resin to get the shape of the hatch. I stapled the fleece where there was frame to staple to, to ensure a good bond. After that I applied 2 layers of 2 oz chop mat and then finalized it with 1708 bi-axial. I haven't finished it yet and I will update if anyone is interested in the finished product. I know I'm leaving some steps out, so feel free to ask any questions. Attached Thumbnails

I am so sick and tired of the racist blacks always playing the race card when there is clearly NOTHING RACIST ABOUT IT!!! :no:

So the NAACP complains that black people are being targeted with traffic tickets and check points entering their neighborhoods.

Now for the kicker. The population of Vicksburg, MS is over 60% black. There were 10 police officers that were issuing tickets. 8 of them black and TWO OF THEM WHITE!!! :confused:

And further reading the article, the tickets were given in 2015 were fairly proportional to the race of the population. In 2016 not so much as it was about 50-50. Who is racist again? :confused:

Roller 496

Pump gas 4 bolt 496. Scat bottom end with probe pistons, REC port open alum heads from RHS with stainless valves and a Howard cam shaft. PRM roller lifters and Crower stainless rockers. Jet pan.

I will try a get the pan off tomorrow for inspection. Short block has approximately 10 hours on it per the guy I bought it off. Built mid 2016. Then decided to go with a nitrous motor so he sold it to his buddy who I bought it off. The guy I bought it off put new heads and valve train in it then sold it to me.. motor has ARP head studs and had mild head porting done...

I know that jughead and "flow" will condemn him for his comment, no brainer. But what do the rest of you think?

Should he have made that comparison? No. Was that a very poor choice? Yes based on the outraged blown up by the MSM.

Was he accurate? I think so. Only because Hitler used it as an assassination tool, not as a weapon. Just as you would use a rope in a hanging and electricity for the chair or even lethal injection.

The MSM sure is having a hay-day of it! :))ThumbsDwn
