Re: Oscillating Tool recommendation

+ 1 on the HF model. I got one as a gift a few years back. I have seriously abused that thing and its still kicking. I also have a Rockwell that I got for a ridiculous price on a closeout at Lowes.

Re: DE25 scaled up?

I don't think you can. This is taken from The Scaling Boat Plans page: "For example, the DE25 is a stretched DE23 with appropriate changes made to displacement, weight distribution etc. but the frames and bulkheads spacing is at its maximum and that boat cannot be stretched further."

Re: GF16 For Sale

Sold! Sad to see it go. There will be another build or two at some point. I have the SC16 plans and something bigger, a FS19, Panga or OD18.

Re: Hydrofoil Installation

I ran a stingray jr on my gf16. It definitely planed quicker but it was out of the water when fully planed out. I definitely liked the stingray better than the doelfin that was on the motor when I bought it.

Re: Part A of foam hardened in the jug

Re: OD18 Opinions

If ride quality is very important to you, you don't want a flat bottom boat.
