Iam in the middle of building an od 18 and would be interested in the mod you describe, one of the worrys i have on the flat bottom is sideways drift if the wind catches you while trolling.
Would a 20 hp outboard be suitable for an od 18, i will be fishing on inland lakes with a max of 2 people, will the 20 hp get the boat on the plane, and what would be the best shaft length short or long?

I am about to cut the sole on my od 18 , one thing i am not to sure of is the measurements at the bow of the sole.It says on the plans 50mm, is this 50mm from each side of the centre line or 25 mm giving 50mm total at the bow of the boat.
I will be building an OD18, the plans say the stringers are made from 2"X6" or you can use laminated ply.Can i get away with using 2 strips of 3/4" ply that will make the stringers 1 1/2" x 6 or does it have to be 2" thick?
