Re: Outboard placement

I use a central steerable outboard on my folding powercat designs, Skoota 20 and 24. That way there are no oil sump problems when the hulls (and thus engines) rotate for trailering. My Skoota 18 is small enough that a single outboard is enough and twin outboards mean twin fuel tanks, batteries etc s...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

It's Hopetown in the Abacos. And the lighthouse is the worlds last clockwork powered kerosene lit light. It is all cast iron, made in the UK in late 1880's and floats on a bath of mercury. You (I) can push the light with one finger even though it weighs 4000lbs (I think) We have been here many times...

It is our third visit here in Skoota. It was built in the PNW and we cruised there for 3 years before trucking it to Texas....

Re: North Carolina Build

As I said earlier, I haven't drawn the Skoota 32 for building in plywood. There are a few building Skoota 32's, including Fallguy and a couple of others in the USA. One is in regular contact with me, but has yet to start the build, the other sent me photos of his first hulls a few weeks ago. You all...

Re: North Carolina Build

Re: PX14 Deckjig question

My apologies for the confusion. Yes the drawing is at the top right. And yes in mm, but only half widths. Ie distance out from the hull centreline on each side of the boat. The bow is to the left. The width dimensions are 500 apart, hence "All 500", except for the ones mentioned as "horizontal" ie 1...
