Since you guys are asking, here are a few pics of the 2005 Stingray I drive sometimes, (when I am not on my sailboat, or one of the little wood outboard boats)...

350 MAG Power
Bravo 1 drive, with 1.5: 1 gears and a low water nosecone pickup
Lenco tabs with indicator controller
I am currently spinning a 21 pitch Power Tech 3-blade prop, but think I will be re-installing my labbed 4-blade 22-pitch Bravo 1 prop

In-Boat Stereo:
06SKM10 under the lounge pad/ motor cover
06KM10 in custome enclosure down in the cuddy
2 pr 06KM625.2's in cockpit.
ZXM 700.5 powering all of the "in-boat" stereo

"Un-tower" stereo:
KM6500.2 set in custom cans, mounted to a thermoformed bracket that attaches to the bimini supports
IX500.4 powering the KM6500.2's in bridge mode; this is a rare example where I feel bridging is okay. The KM6500.2's are designed not to have any impedance dips, with a pretty much ruler-flat impedance curve fixed at 4-ohms.

Here are a few more pics of the process of building the pods. The last one is out of order, and please forgive me for the crummy quality of the pics. I shot them with my phone, in fairly low res so they could be sent via phone text message.

I have an solenoid controlled oil injector nozzle in the intake plenum connected to a tank full of fogging oil via a trim pump. Hit the switch and I can lay down a smoke screen so thick that I could lose a DEA helicoptor...

I also have a pair of compressed-air-powered jettison rams mounted discreetly under the sun-deck over the motor. The sun-deck hinges have been beefed up, and there is a shock absorbing limit control arm to keep it from totally flying off. If some chick comes climbing on the back of the boat and gets to flapping her trap too much or making a scene, I hit the "peaceful sounds" switch to launch her over the the raft-up of the boats loaded with the "posers and players and wannabees"...

auto-pilot
galley with icebox and dual burner stove

soon to be air conditioned
She sits in this pic, waiting in my shop, waiting for it to get cool enough to do some maintenance and upgrades on:

22" LCD TV with DVD and omni HD antenna at the top of the stick
surround sound with sub
Sony single - din DVD player and Sony CDX-M60UI head unit
dual source / dual zone control with independent volume between cockpit and the interior
Submarine launch bay with separate torpedo tubes

Phil,
For the Catalina I'm thinking of something kinda Austin Powersish with the Brit flag, a slightly crooked mast and ambered sails. So what do you think?

I'd like to see phil's tow rig for that sailboat... looks like something in the 18wheel variety to tow it :)

nice ride btw..

Father-in-law's Diesel-powered International. It has a big flatbed with a goosneck. He has a big 40-foot implement trailer that he hauls his farm and hay equipment on. The International totes it like nothing is back there.

i'd like to swap the 15hp diesel volvo for a GM 350 in the sailboat...

It still woudn't plane.... :D

I am for redneck conversions though. I am researching small 110 freezers, small enough to fit in the boat tucked out of the way. The idea is to keep a freezer running while plugged into shore power. This freezer contains a solid block of ice, in vessel of some sort, (like a big heavy milk jug for example) with a coil of copper tube in the ice.

The copper tube connects to a heater core, or a small radiator with a top - fill cap. The copper tube has a pump installed to pump antifreeze through the ice to cool it, then up to the heater core or radiator and back down. The heater core or radiator has a small 12-volt squirrel-cage fan attached, blowing air through chilling it. Voila, you have a condensing air-conditioner cooing system that will remove moisture from the air. And while under way, the only moving parts are a couple of 2Amp motors, one running a pump and the other running a fan. Low current low voltage air conditioning....

When you return to the dock, simply plug back in. The freezer will kick on, and turn any liquid water back to ice. Wait a while and you are ready for the next trip out. It is kinda lie recharging your house battery for the stereo overnight....

My other option is to simply use one of the storage bins under the dinette. Insulate it real well, and put a bunch of copper in there, shaped so that it conforms tightly to several milk jugs full of frozen ice. You can just rotate frozen milk jugs from a big freezer on shore. You possibly could accumulate a greater thermmal mass going this way, when compared to a small freezer...

:D

what about keeping a small chunk of dry ice in with the block of ice to keep it from melting? might last a couple of days that way?

It would asphyxiate you. Co2 is heavier than air and will accumulate in the boat interior.

Leearned the hard way when I snuck some dry ice into a suitcase on a family trip as a kid. Most of my family went to sleep and my dad could not stay awake while driving. I was bored, and got it out and started playing with it, and that is when my dad figured out what was wrong.

Got my butt beat, but I will never have dry ice in any vehicle again.
