Re: DE23/25 Build

Matt, I think your pricing is spot on. There will always be some surprises but those will be minimal. I'm glad you've read my previous comments and opinions. I still stand by them. I think you'll be very happy with the 25. It crabs, shrimps and fishes GREAT. It's also very comfortable and fuel effic...

Re: DE23/25 Build

Hi Matt, If you go to the plans for the DE 25 long cockpit, and click on "see more pictures", you'll see my DE 25. There are some dockside near the bridge over the Swinomish Slough. There are also some underway. You'll notice that I've pressed a number up against the window. These numbers correspond...

Re: Problems with the DE 23?

You are right on all counts! Mine is the Blue hull with the white house and that pic was taken at that marine. Scott Roberts, now on Lopez sold me and rigged my 115 Evinrude E-Tec. Again, somewhere on this forum are pictures of my boat at 1000 rpm, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, and WOT. I also listed fuel...

Re: Problems with the DE 23?

Amydog = David Sours. The picture in the study plans is my boat. I'm too much of a moron to post pictures. There are some already on this site, including construction and performance pictures and numbers. Perhaps some one can help find these. I have many comments and suggestions but let me start by ...

Re: New System3 Paint

Jacques, We'll be rolling and tipping. I just received the white (old formulation) from you and still need the Lopez blue (you're out of stock) Will you be getting more or should I get it somewhere else?

Re: New System3 Paint

Jacques, Below is the response I got from S3 technical support when I asked about a "new formulation" of their LPU topcoat... Do you have any plans to restock the colors you are now out of stock? I need a gallon of Lopez Blue. "David, Thank you for your interest. The WR-LPU will not change. We are i...

Re: Marschall DE25

Wow Jacques, what a great and thorough clarification/explanation. Marschall, that transition is truly remarkable. For 35 years, I only knew boats that were either displacement or had to climb out of a hole to get on top. The DE 25 has none of that. It defies everything I ever knew. It's maybe the co...

Re: Marschall DE25

Listen to Jacques. He designed the boat. If you build it and power it as designed, it will perform as designed. Again, whether you but a 90 hp on it or a 130 on it, it will not "wallow", regardless of your weight (assuming you don't put all the weight on the transom) The heavier boat will use more g...
