Yeah my deal is I am going with 4" tips and spacing is different on off the shelf parts. I like those tails they do not mix the water until the tip.I loved the old school logs, had a real nice set of NICSON manifolds and snails, I ended up destroyer the block when I filled up number 6 with water. the only thing we can think of is it had to push up thru my tips as I wasnt running a flapper. I have the motor very low in the boat, my drive shaft is right at 1/2 inch above my floors and I clocked the snails to be at the same angle as the valve covers. Was teaching a young man the ski so we were back and forth in big waves and when she locked up she bent everything. I just swapped over to Dana exhaust and down tubes, been out a couple times and no issues... so far... with this boat I am keeping my fingers crossed. I had to notch my hatch a bit but everything is still under the cover, at first start up it was a noticeable difference in sound for sure and I am breaking the prop loose out of the hold, torque is noticeable up and we put the same basic engine back together just 60 over vs 30. I run Nicson logs on my flat and have no intention of changing them but felt it was necessary for the day cruiser.

Hmmm, build from scratch, reuse axles, cut up old trailer, transfer old Vin and plates to new creation, go boating. Not a bad idea.
No steep driveway just protecting underwater gear better than it was. Thought about it on the bolts.Dayum, that is going to be one STOUT trailer. Looking great and I love the bronze bushings in the rollers, you must have a steep driveway or someplace thats gonna need em. Are you going to run bolts with zerks?
Lol no engine is still on the stand. Next year I hopeHmmm, build from scratch, reuse axles, cut up old trailer, transfer old Vin and plates to new creation, go boating. Not a bad idea.
Progress looks great.
I take it you didn't go to the Havasu Trump parade. In the rdp video, a double step day cruiser at the 36 second is mark looks like yours. Or mine.
How about a U-bolt with a fabricated bolt-together pulley about 1” down from your bow stop to use the winch where it’s sitting?
Simple as it gets+free electric oven, Eastwood dual voltage gun and some good powder. I am into it for $300 at this point with powder so that doesn't take long at a shop! Prep is key sand blast/pre-heat to get shit out of material /wipe down with acetone etcVery nice!
Tell us more about your home powder coat set-up. Every time I take a bunch of CS little parts down to my PC guy I think, I should just figure out how to do this myself...
That is a really cool idea/design! You need to be careful though as the different ramp angles and water levels can cause contact with the boat in unintended areas. You would need a SS contoured armor plate area up around there to give yourself insurance against that potential damage.
Probably going to ditch it and go roller lolThat is a really cool idea/design!

Looks awesome though!
I saw this, Great work on the contour ! I think they are the same brand fenders.
