    Looking good Chuck...

    I like the way the entire bracket span sits tight against the transom.... seen some others where there are large gaps filled with caulk on the ends.

    Also like the fact that the bracket was built for twins but you are using it with a single... having the option to go back to twins is a nice feature.

    What are the plans for trim tabs now that the factory pockets were eliminated? I assume transom mount with short actuators for clearance reasons....hydro or electric and why?

    Keep at it and thanks for sharing the progress.

    Eric

      Thanks! I am happy with the way this is going. I have new Lenco 12x12 Edge Mount tabs I hope to install this weekend. I have had both Lenco and Bennett, both are great products with excellent customer service, but I like the response time and simplicity of electric tabs. I provided Lenco boat details and pics, and Lenco made the size and style recommendation.

      I was hoping to get all plumbing done and tabs installed before getting motor hung, but I am experiencing delays getting hardware. I want to get on water asap, so I delivered the boat to the mechanic to hang and service motor while I wait for bilge hardware.

        I REALLY need my new thru hulls to come in, but I am getting closer...

            She still hasn't splashed and still has work to be done, but progress is being made.









            I still have to plumb most of the bilge and wire up bilge pumps and trim tabs.

              Well she still isn't finished, but I got to safe splash point and actually ran this weekend. Bilge pump works, new tabs work, and the thru hulls have ball valves that are closed but not actually plumed. The motor ran great, and the boat performed well. It felt good to be behind the helm again, and we even caught a couple fish Sunday.

                I do have an unresolved issue with my scuppers; I discovered they no longer fit. With the new Lenco Edge Mount tabs, the space to cover the deck drains now, between bracket and tab ram, doesn't allow for most scuppers. Holes are already drilled, same location as were before transom, and the holes are too close together for individual circle scuppers. I had the T-H Marine plastic with shim, but they are just over 7' wide. I have been searching and most rectangular scuppers are 7"-8" wide; I need something about 5" to cover 2 holes totaling ~3.5".





                Raybo recommended altering the Gemlux 845 to fit on THT, and if I cannot find another solution I will go that route. Any ideas?

                  I would think you have 2 realistic paths. As Raybo suggested have the Gemlux 845 milled down to fit, and really You only look to need the inboard side milled down.

                  The other, is why not get 2 rubber flaps and make your self a cheap mold and mold 2 fiberglass frames, they'd jsut be holding the rubber flap in place. No need for SS or bronze, heck you could probably even use starboard or Coosa and router it out if you're a woodworker.

                  If I wind up tight like that I may do the same.

                    I ended up getting the Gemlux 845's and had cut to fit. I hope to install this week and give a good test weekend, but I think these will work well. I really liked the way the T-H Marine plastic scuppers with the shimm worked and have used on 2 different hulls. These certainly look better and are alot more money, so I am curious to see how the compare.

                    • How do those work chuck? Seems where you cut the sides will not be flush but have a gap

                        I'll update when installed, but these are the "Regulator Scuppers". Neoprene flap will cover the holes and theory is the flaps allow water out, but get pushed against hull and keep water out. You can see from pic above of me and Connor leaving the rodeo site the scupper holes are actually a couple inches above the water line, so only really an issue when alot of people at rear, in reverse, launching, etc... I put the T-H marine plastic on when I purchased, the previous owner ran the boat with nothing covering the holes. The boat has been in the water a few times already without issue, but I still want covered and keep as much water out as possible. Last trip was Connor with a couple buddies, so essentially 4 adults and no issues.
