In the back of the boat...part of the transom was the well and it had no circulation. It had a cover that was hinged and held down with rope tongs so to say on ours. It was tight and they didnt have a lot of room. You grabbed them out of the trap, quick measure on a measure board, band the claws and into the well if they didnt go back over the side? Bait the trap and back into the water!!!

Marine Power Unit?

I've been looking at the power unit used by "Diane". Is there one or two makes that were used in a majority of the boats?

Below is a highlighted drive train section showing the engine, exhaust, gear reduction and propeller drive shaft.

Any ideas? OhioMike? It could be left out but including it makes for a more interesting model...,

+Gil

P.S. Thanks all around for the encouragement - it's always appreciated...,

Engine stuff

Gil, I found some pix on the web (boat for sale site) that show the engine inside the 'cabin' area - apparently using a straight shaft without the reduction reversal as depicted in the Diana drawings. Looking at the range of exhaust stack locations, I'd say there is a bit of variety. An engine in the back deck would be easy access but more exposed whereas one in the cabin not so much, providing heat easily but perhaps a CO hazard... design compromises to be made for the engine location, plus how big it is physically.

Great drawings/ 3D CAD, BTW!

Fascinating!

Thanks rbeach84.

Looking around the internet it's fairly evident there is a lot of making do with what you've got or can easily get.

There's a definite lean toward diesel engines. Operating cost, the additional fire hazard of gasoline, dependability and reliability of diesel engines make them a natural choice. Besides after World War II, inexpensive surplus diesel engines swept the market putting the specialized marine engine companies out of business. With all this in mind it's beginning to appear that Detroit Diesel is the most probable. Haven't researched the gear reduction unit yet...,

This has turned out to be a most informative thread. I'm glad you decided to apply your skill, talent, and experience to this project, Gil.

The Maine lobster boat is one of those classic watercraft that just looks right and you are capturing every aspect of the craft.
