29' twin diesel Regal for Ells

Postby Maxrat » Mon Apr 09, 2018 1:57 pm

Finally got the bottom and sides back from getting formed. This will be a 29' Regal with 8' bottom and 10' beam powered by twin Yanmar 8LV diesels and twin Hami 241 jet drives. It will have an insane sound system and be tricked out to the max. This boat belongs to the Ells family and will be running the Snake River in Hell's Canyon and the Columbia River in Tri Cities, WA.

Most likely Maxsteer but interesting you ask. Brandon was here yesterday when we were just finishing up a new stick steering system that is completely hydraulic. Some customers prefer the feedback feel you have in a stick but a mechanical stick turning twin Hami 241's with twin 8LV's gets hard after 2/3 throttle. So I developed a new system that is stick steer but completely hydraulic. Just finished it yesterday and going to take it onto the water this week.

completely hyd no mechanical link as backup??, but I guess the joystick doesn't have a backup anyway, so have to trust tec with no redundancy. o well not at 20.000 feet up in the air, just 80.000 cfps of water?? no worries. :Drink1: :bash:

You always have steering no matter what. Your steering cable goes bad, bearing seize on mechanical stick or whatever by just disconnecting the linkage and steering it by hand if you must. The only time you don't have steering is when your engine dies which is far more likely. Actually the Maxsteer has 3 different back-ups. To get the USCG to sign off on a commercial vessel we built for Rock'in Thunder we had to jump through a bunch of hoops for the Coast Guard in Washington DC but got it all approved with 3 back-ups. But like I said, If there is engine failure it makes no difference what steering you have, time to jump to the kicker or steer it by hand at slow speed.

I have a hard time with guys that run shaft stick steer through the stringers worried about the reliability of their steering. I don't know how many boats I have heard of taking a hard hit and loosing steering with a mechanical stick. My only issue would be that a on river Jerry rig of the maxsteer would be tougher.

Don't hit rocks and your steering will work fine. The key is to not run out of talent.

Almost ready to flip over. From these pics you can see where the six 8D batteries are going in just to power the amps in this boat.

That's pretty silly. One Honda EU2000 generator and JBL pro audio will blow away 12v audio gear. Might need a 9' bottom for all that weight. The battery weight is like having another 8lv in the cab. What are your guesses for weight, 12k lbs?

Trying to keep pace with a guy that has a red bwc all decked out. Triple axle trailer for a 24' boat.

Remember guys this is a large boat at 29' with 8' bottom and 10' beam. We just finished a USCG certified boat that was only a foot longer and certified for 24 passenger and 2 crew. When the USCG calculates their passenger carry they consider each person at 180 lbs and that boat fully loaded with 26 people runs over 50 mph, so with these 6 batteries, the boat won't even feel it. Bottom displacement with width and length makes a huge difference.
