Re: OB21 possible?

I wouldn't worry about the width. It is very wide as is and you might lose 4" at most but you can make the upper deck slightly as, if I remember correctly they are 12" wide, An 8-10 might even look better.

Re: Scupper questions/opinions

I really prefer scuppers out the transom. I have an OD18 with them out the side and they are not as efficient as transom scuppersThey are only 1" while transom scuppers can be 5-9" wide. See https://shop.hamiltonmarine.com/inet/st ... 5D=scupper

Re: OD18 Opinions

I have CL's OD18 up here in the mountains of NC and am enjoying her. He did take her everywhere. For about the same amount of time you could build the FS19 which CL would have liked. But the OD works fine for me.

Re: Knoxville Jay’s C17 Build

Well here on Bateau we use graphite/epoxy on the bottom which gives a black bottom. After priming the bottom you can of course paint the bottom any color you wish.

Re: Eric's C21

From Tom to Eric may God bless you and your family. Hope you can finish your C21 and enjoy her. Life is full of trials and tribulations and I know you will fight through this one. I have been through many in my 66 years and feel for you. Best wishes in the coming days.
