    OPEN QUESTION !!:eek:
    Can anyone advise me on the construction of engine beds for a pair of 435 hp marine diesel engines being fitted to a 46 foot power boat .
    Would build over polyurethane foam cut to shape and radiused corners etc etc will have steel plates built in for the mounts to bolt through into .
    The bed /bearer length is approx 2.4 mtrs long spaced to suit the width of the motor . :?:
    Thank you !:D

    T哈卡有[/I] Thank you for that in chinese !:p
    I now find out theres the possability of twin stern drives going in the next boat , i will simply extend forward a little more to the engine room hull laminate i had added to for the grounds of the IPS units . This will be good grounds for the engine beds to sit on any way .
    Like you tube and face book we cant get them here as its blocked like so many other sites i try to get onto to get general info from . The pdf you gave i cant get as well .
    I will be going back to nz in july so will down load it while i am there and return with it .
    For a while i was getting conected by going to google,co,nz but now thats dried up and stopped to , bugger !!. :mad:

    <removed> I made a deal I ordered dies, 20k alu extrusions, they made, then when I did not give then a delivery address they said they would recycle them
    Then when I reordered they said, now you must take 10 tonne, our original deal was 400kg
    i was going to be in a joint venture there. But was too bloody scared

    Yeah i now what you are about . when i came here i traveled with some Kiwi guys that thought they were onto a good thing but less that 30 minutes into talking up a deal The chinese guy could see what they were about so the kiwi guys messed up big time. and we were back on the street abd packing bfor the sun went down . The chinese have been ripped off for centures by every stranger that set foot on chinese soil . They are gun shy and i cant say i blame them . Money comes first then God or buddha or who ever !.
    I have been fortunate to have been straight up and on the level since day one of coming to this company and they have been really good to me , truth comes first and being straight up nad on the level . Worked in Korea as well and got treated like royalty all time i was there . Has a lot to do with age as well and that plays a big part in what i am doing any way must go !:p
