Re: SK14 build question

No change in glass specs. It should work but the volume will go down by about 30% (0.9 exponent 3). I hope you are not too heavy.
Keep us up to date on that customization.

Re: Preparing for GT27 build - questions

The sharper bow angle will not be a problem.
I"m glad you can keep going, no major problem.

Re: SK14 build question

It's heavy, it's at the limit. Some 8 HP weigh close to 100 lbs too. The ideal outboard is 50lbs, like a Suzuki 6HP but a lot depends on the other weights. If you are light, a heavy outboard is not a problem but if you are heavier, it may be. Nothing will break but the trim at slow speed maybe be ba...

Re: C19 versus C21 outboard question

I couldn't care less about how the boat is built. When I commit to buying a plan, it is because I have examined all available information about it and similar plans and deemed it the most appropriate for my needs.

Re: C19 versus C21 outboard question

I am waiting for the new website to post more info but the plans are regularly updated. While there is a difference in weight between a 2 and 4 stroke, those two boats can each easily take a 4 stroke.

Re: Eric's C21

That's fine, I forgot that you planned for a bracket. Everything OK then.
