Re: Runabout, powered by PWC

The Correct Craft style is what I was thinking about. You probably have enough vee in the hull that it won't be necessary. Bad low speed steering is probably why the jetskis all have big rubber bumpers all the way around them. :lol:

Another 4" of rain, but it's running off pretty good. Flash floods everywhere for a while, but it's slacked off for now.
I've had enough April showers. Bring on the Mayflowers, or any other boat. :help:

Raymond says the acrylic is as strong or stronger than starboard
And much easier on the eyes. A little buffing on the cut edges and they'll GLOW. :D

I know what I'd do...I'd build a ship that would carry me away from the land of the ice and snow, with the midnight sun where the harsh winds blow. A latitude adjusting tool, if you will. 8)
