I am looking for side lights and a bow rail for a 1985 Bayliner 21 ft Trophy Cuddy Cab?

I really only need the red lens for the side light but will take what I can get.

It’s probably made by “Perko”, they make almost all (99%) of the lights for all the boat manufacturers.

Why is the limit of the speed of a sail boat dependent upon the length of the hull?

I’ve been told that it has to do with the length of the wave that the boat generates while moving through the water, but I don’t understand why that’s a limiting factor. I’m referring to boats that displace water as they move, and not those that ride on top of the water such as hydrofoils or catmarans.
Please don’t quote wikopedia….or any other source that doesn’t EXPLAIN why or how the hull length controls the maximum speed. What’s the physics involved!

I don’t know about waves. It is the same for a canoe or kayak or the length to width ratio.The longer the ”footprint” on the water the more efficient it is(for a given weight). All boats displace water the more draft (boat under waterline) you have the more resistance you have.
the longer the canoe, the faster it will be. Canoes are displacement hulls; their maximum speed (displacement speed), which says nothing about the effort required to reach that speed, is determined by the formula; S (speed) equals 1.55 times the square root of the waterline length. Simple math reveals that an 18 1/2-foot canoe can be driven 6.7 miles per hour, while a 15-footer, can be driven 6.0 miles per hour.
Another example is skiing down a mountain with 2 foot skis then switching to 6 foot skiis. The 6 footers would go way faster.

Choosing the Boat That is Right for you

What type of boat is best for my lifestyle?

Maybe you are an avid fisherman who spends endless summer days searching for that fish that will give you ultimate bragging rights, or want to spend summer afternoons slowly cruising with a group of friends on your pontoon, or possibly have a fascination for speed and water sports. Whatever your passion, there is a boat out there that is made specifically for your needs and desires. However it isn’t always easy to know exactly which boat you should choose. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the enormous variety of boat types and models. There are several different boat choices based on what they would be used for.

What will I use the boat for?

You should first decide what you anticipate using the boat for. There are boats for fishing, water sports, cruising, sailing, entertaining, or taking long trips. Some are designed for multiple purposes.

Once you know what you want to do with it, decide who you are going to be taking with you? You may not want a pontoon boat the fits 12 people if you are only going to be fishing with a buddy. You also don’t want to overload your boat because of safety.

Consider where you will be enjoying your boat; up and down the calm river, on a sheltered lake, or an open ocean with high waves and rough seas. If you will be taking trips you will want your boat to have a cabin.

Choosing the right engine for my boat:

Now consider the propulsion needed when deciding on an engine type. The horsepower and weight are very important factors in the performance of your boat. An engine that is not powerful enough will cause your boat to work harder than it should and lead to a great deal of maintenance and excess use of fuel. You need to consider the size and weight of your boat, including gear and passengers. There are six different propulsion types with varying factors to consider when choosing a system for your boat.

Outboard Motors (2 types)

Outboard motors are detachable and mounted on the stern of the boat, with horsepower ranging from 1HP to over 300HP. These engines can be used in all types of water. The 2 types of outboard motors are 2 stroke and 4 stroke.

2 Stroke: better acceleration, no need to change oil, better fuel efficiency, lower priced, weighs less, quieter

4 Stroke: lower emissions, excellent fuel economy, electronic ignition systems, good acceleration, oil added to engine not fuel

Diesel Inboard Engines

These engines range in size and horsepower, and rely on compression for power. They are designed for boats over 35ft because they produce torque and weigh more than gas engines.

No carbon monoxide in cabins or back, non-explosive fuel, low running cost, excellent torque, long life expectancy

Gas Inboard Engines

These engines are used for a variety of different sizes and types of boats, and range in horsepower from 90HP to 1000HP. It is located in the middle of the boat with the drive running through the bottom of the boat to the propeller. The rudder is separate for steering.

Simple drive system, quite, hidden, lower maintenance, low running costs

Jet Propulsion

These systems do not include a propeller, which make it safer for water sports. They are inboard engines that take in water which flows through a pump that is powered by an impeller. The high pressure caused by this, propels the boat forward. However, steering is only possible when power is being applied. Things can also be sucked into the water intake, and shouldn’t be used in shallow water.

Stern Drive

This is often called an Inboard/Outboard and consists of an engine and drive connected through the transom of the boat. The engine is inside and the propulsion is outside of the boat. This drive can be trimmed up or down. There are many different types of functions depending on what they will be used for. They can be used with one or two propellers, as well as two drives on one boat with one or two propellers.

Low maintenance, ease of control and steering, used on gas or diesel engines, quiet

Saltwater and freshwater boat? difference?
so long story short, my parents are splitting up and giving me the sea ray boat.

being in upstate new york all the lakes are freshwater.

next year me and my girlfriend are moving to south beach florida. i want to take the boat with. HOWEVER, i understand theres a difference between boats made for freshwater and boats in saltwater? or at least so im told…

so, what can be done to my boat to make it so the engine isn’t killed with salty water over time instead of having to rinse the engine out everytime i use it.
or do i need to just get a boat made for saltwater?

(i dont know if there is really a difference between salt and freshwater boats… ive been told there is. sooo no BS please if its a stupid question. i already feel like it is but wanna check)

i clearly dont plan on taking it out at sea. it would be suicide. just a nice calm protected bay area for me and my lady to cruise and float around in and relax.

my only concern is one, costs of any adjustments. and the different water type killing the boat.
the boat itself is like 17 years old. but its in REALLY good condition and was taken care of. i prefer to keep it that way.

First what model and size is the Sea Ray? That will help us to determine if the boat is a lake boat, bay boat or what it’ll be able to do. You can run that boat in either fresh or salt waters. You just need to remember to flush the engine and drive unit with freshwater after you’re done. There’s really no difference between a Freshwater boat and a Saltwater boat other than the amount of “Freeboard”. An alternative is to have a “Closed Water Cooling System” installed on the engine. Then the engine is safe regardless of where you operate the boat. I have an ORCA system installed on my 26′ Express Cruiser and it’s really nice. In 9 years, I’ve not had any problems.

My guess is that you have a Sport Boat which was used for the lakes, so I would be careful about using the boat very far from shore. Sport boats are OK for use in Bays and “Protected” waters, but they are not ocean boats. Ocean boats will have closed bows and plenty of “Freeboard”.

If you use the boat in salt water, hose everything down well and give it a quick wipe down. The areas that are going to show the most are the metal rails, cleats and windshield frame. If you keep those clean and polished, you’ll be fine. If not, they will dull and “pit” from the salt eating away at it. The outdrive unit will need to be serviced after 100 hours of use when used in saltwater. Saltwater breaks down components and seals faster than freshwater.

BTW, I own two Sea Rays so I know the line very well.

Question For Bass Fisherman with Bass Boats!!!?

I’m purchasing a 1992 Ranger 330V and a 135 Mercury Black Max. My family is agreed to buying it and most likely getting it. I am a young bass fisherman and now getting my first bass boat. I am real excited. Its missing an electronic at the Console. I need you guys to tell me some LOW PRICEEE Lowrance fishfinders WITH! (WITH!) a GPS. I looked on their website and found some but I would like YOUR opinion on the quality ones. I guess you can reccomend Humminbird’s and Garmins etc.etc. Mainly Lowrance Please and Thank You.

And we need a truck to tow it with. Any Models/Brands that my family should look for?
NEW? OR USED?
The boat is supposed to weigh under 2,000lbs (1700? 1800?)

THANKS FOR THE HELP! 🙂

I answered this question last night, not sure why its being asked again….almost anything can tow 2000 lbs……a truck like a dodge dakota, durango or ram will tow up to 10,000lbs.
