Who do you have building the power? And any thought to doing an Arneson set-up?
From what I have read on here it is a wash cost wise vs. the SCX. Would be different....

Think about what you could build for an I/O with 70 grand. Way more than 800 hp. We are doing exactly that. 665 CID. Our engine plans has changed from the original plan. Still an I/O.

Alot more info on the engine build to come. Parts have been ordered on that end.
Couldn't agree with this more. You'd have to do a lot of retooling on the 29 to hang OB off the back. Also you put 2 outboards back there, it's going to make getting in and out of the water very tough, so it wouldn't be user friendly. A healthy big block will be cheaper and be much more usable and turn a lot more heads.

what material for the transom -bulkhead and stringers are you using ?
unless it's a top secret build how many layers in the hull, hull sides and deck?
what material and resin ?

am i seeing this right? you put a laveycraft decal on the mold then sprayed gel over it.

hope you keep the process updated w/ plenty of pics

Have always liked those hulls , thinking twin LS7 's around 600 hp running with bravo's would be fast and affordable

Good luck with your project ........looks like a winner

Chris would know the material, weaves, and number used I dont know myself. I do know the reps at both Composite One and RevChem are happy with Bup and Chris.

As to the decal in the mold, it didnt work like that.

The decal served as a guide and the actual letters were taped out with immense care and attention to detail then the decal was removed and gelcoat shot in.

Chris is tuning up the vacuum machine for the bagging process.

This is an interesting device that looks a lot for the world like a three rotor wankel engine.

It runs on 240 4(?) phase and generates a lot of heat, so it has to be water cooled during its run cycle you can see the water tank above Chris's head.

It creates immense vacuum that is stored up in series of atmosphere tanks (there are more storage vessel used than shown but see the two big round things in pict 2) for immediate access during the process.

Valving allows the team to slam the vacuum into the core, as well as back it off to make adjustments to any core material that may be displaced when the vacuum hits.

That would be an awesome setup! They did a 29 a few years ago with twin 600 Mercury motors and I believe it ran north of 105. LS based motors would significantly reduce the weight and be easy on a set of XR based drives.

Default Prepping for Vac Bag...

Yeah that 29 with twin 600's was a wicked beautiful machine.



The core material (balsa) is cut like puzzle pieces on the band saw.

Then it gets fitted and laid out on a dry run and marked both numerically and directionally per piece - so it can be rapidly assembled.
