Thanks for the input! I had never envisioned needing a trolling motor, but I have been forced to change my quarry from Redfish to Bass. I know nothing about Bass fishing, but I guess I can learn.

OD18 Trolling Motor Specs

I am looking at putting a trolling motor on the bow of my OD18. I measured the distance from the rear of the casting deck (where it is level with the gunwale) to the bottom of the boat, and it is about 31 or 32 inches.

Thanks for the info. The Westlawn course does look to be better. I am just pondering the notion of learning more about the subject. It looks to be very interesting, and could be a fun way to use my engineering degree, while making a little money on the side.

In my opinion, a 25hp motor on the OD18 will not be quite enough. I had a 30hp on mine for a bit, and it did okay if it was just me in the boat, but not if I had more people in it.

Question for Jacques and other designers........

I ran across this school that offers a course program in Naval Architecture/Yacht Design. It looks very interesting. What is your take on it? Here is the site:

MacNaughton Yacht Design School

Thanks,

You do great work! I think that is the next thing I need to teach myself; how to make my own T-top. It sure would have been nice today...I forgot my sunscreen and got scorched.

I used the logos from your sites in the ads in my "buy plans" section. If you would like me to remove the logos, let me know and I will. I hope I send plenty of customers to your sites! I also finished writing the php script and converting over to a database! It was quite a learning experience. Than...
