excellent use of a kitchen implement. Is there any real improvement, as all my engines are currently "Un Paned"

Also interesting boat, any information, would be most welcome.

Great reuse of old wares aye!

Now have a think about drag in the water.

If it was "non stick" it would have less drag!

Now your cooking!

Drag wont be a problem at all, it has all of it's teflon still! The Missus has the old one, nothing but the best for me!!

This was only for a play to see if it would improve things any..... 10 km to 16 km , I think it helpped. I will be making another one but I had to give the pan a try before I used something that cost real money.


This is the site that I got the idea for the boat from http://koti.kapsi.fi/hvartial/index.htm

Sometimes it is nice to let others know "However You Play" aye?

Playing is the mother of kitchen performance and leads to better health and well being of the inner boy.

Gulls are like that.

I like a lot.

Hmmm.

The "DRAG" thing might be something to look at here.
Curved edges might hinder things a bit (better off being straight)

Straighten the curved edges and it will probably work reasonably well.

just my thoughts

good effort though

That one is just not right! it looks too good. (thanks for the photo it will help with making a new one)
My motto is I need to be able to make for as little as possible or free.
There is no point in paying out good money if the idea wont work.

Ok, time to play spot the dumb arse.

Am i right in thinking this little add on to your outboard has the effect of not allowing it to be pulled deeper the more you rev it?

Sort of right.

It's got very little to do with cavitation & is more of a trim tab.

Some hulls have a considerable amount of rocker & when under power, the bow tends to rise & the stern gets lower in the water so rather than cutting cleanly through the water, the bow wave is formed half way down the hull & it looks like the hull is trying to climb over a lump in the water, slowing everything down.

This problem can be eased
(a) by moving the passengers right up into the bow & weighing the bow down,
(b) by fitting a trim tab as far back on the hull/motor as possible that forces the stern to rise & the bow fall when under way,
(c) finding a hull with almost no rocker that runs level under almost all stages of power.

If you look at any of the faster Seagull race boats almost no evidence of any rocker will be found.

So the anticav pan is a partial cure for using the wrong shaped hull in the wrong application.

Here's a pic of one I saw in the Union Canal near Ratho. I can only imagine that it was from a design in the Southern Hemisphere.
