Re: OB19 or scaled OB21 vs GP21 vs PH22 for offshore use ?

For what it’s worth I don’t think the GP21, with only 3 degrees of dead rise at the transom, will meet your expectations
Why would you say that ?
Because experience tells me that in anything other than light chop it will be rough, slow and wet!

Re: OB19 or scaled OB21 vs GP21 vs PH22 for offshore use ?

The OB21 is a good choice for what you want to do. I plan to build the AB 23 to fish the rigs in Louisiana. I intend to scale up by 10% and build with a full transom, bracket or porta bracket, and single 300hp. I would love to see someone build one. I know Cracker Larry always wanted to build one. ...

Re: OD16 power help Jaques or Evan

Under powering is a perpetual problem with boats. The plans say, “Max 40 hour”! Do yourself a favour and put a 40 on it! :D

Doesn’t mean that you have to run around like a maniac all the time, but does let you cruise comfortably on those occasions when you need to load up!

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

Michael, I am sure that you will already be aware of it, but today on the Country Hour I listened to an interesting interview with Dr Ben Diggles about a project to re-establish the natural oyster beds in the Pummicestone Passage on artificial reefs of "recycled" oyster shells. :D What really got my...

Re: My boat has been invaded by an alien life form!

That looks bad! Do you know how moisture got in there and stayed long enough to grow? So do you think the inspection plate leaked? Richard Woods told me 12 oz biax is the minimum glass that is required to prevent ingress. Did you not glass the step on the outside? What is the post mortem? Indeed, t...
