Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Oh wow! That is a lot. The bright side is it is not structure.

On that drip molding, could you have it dead end into a hole in the side and run on the outside of that small wall?

Re: Giving away my LM18 LS RC

Capt UB I think you gave us all a scare!! Very glad it is some good news. I know you have been working your butt off and not much progress on your build. So, hope the new boat goes well and you don't forget to post your seafaring adventures.....Even if it's only sitting on the deck drinking a few co...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

The flatness makes sense. If it doesn't add the displacement, it's not needed for the extra weight. A blunt, angled bow would provide more lift when hit by a wave. Easy way to save weight and keep it small. The little boat makes more and more sense every new part added!!

Re: Sharkbait PG20

Sorry Sharkbait, wasn't trying to tell you how to build your boat, looks like you are doing a great job. Just you asked for opinions about a skeg and got none. The section the question was posted was not in an area most builders or the designers visit. This is a very important question, like BarraMa...

Re: Sharkbait PG20

The skeg kind of helps in turns, especially in high speed turns. The back of the boat tends to want to go in the direction the motor is pushing it.

Re: FS14- Bayou City Boat

Well, I was trying to get more work done on the build before going back to "normal" work. Got a new assistant that is smart as they come. She only needs to learn everything we do, prices and how I think and she will be ready. :roll: She has all the computer stuff down already and is not afraid to ta...

Re: Sharkbait PG20

Debating on the skeg. Leaning towards no skeg. Opinions? I think this needs to be re-visited. Why do you not want a skeg? Some hulls do not need them and others do. You may want to post this question in the "Board index-Plans and Building-Power Boats" [/b] And get feedback from the builders and pos...
