Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

I used to think a flat bottom boat would be OK for Mobile bay or the Delta , that was until I put in close to four years working on the river every day rain , fog , or shine in 24' to 26' Carolina skiffs . You can't beat a Cape Horn as an all around boat for our waters , but my back is bad , and I ...

Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building anothera

The hmd is the one I meant...sorry for the confusion You do need to understand; stitch n glue plywood boats are very light; they are not wave parting tanks. Another boat that would work and be extremely great for fishing and also safe in 9 foot seas is the Skoota 18. It would wave cut and be very u...

Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

The hmd is the one I meant...sorry for the confusion I'm not sure if you started at the beginning of this post? I cant see how any of the hulls you suggest could fit in with a bay/protected water fishing boat to an offshore fishing boat on a nice calm day. :doh: :doh: or I'm missing something. I'll...

Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

Sorry, but no way do I want to ride a panga in 2 footers.. The boat has a fine entry and narrow beam and essentially rides the waves up and down and a tunnel boat is built for shallow water. It is even narrower. Both hulls are ultralight and have no force down to part the seas. I have not been on e...

Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

jacquesmm, Thanks for taking the time to help me out in this process ONCE AGAIN. Given my original post can we discuss a couple of points/ideas. I continue to go through your designs and layouts all the while thinking of the usage of my next boat. I also look into this build with the thought of help...

Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

. lol The Mangusta 20 fits pretty well but man it's HUGE How do you figure that? My boat is based on the Mangusta 20 hull. I upscaled it 10% - at 22’ x 8’ I t’s BIG but not huge. With its 18 degrees of deadrise at the transom, it is a big fast excellent handling soft riding boat. My mates love it! ...

Re: BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

Thanks for the reply. Before coming back this route I put out some feelers to several of my catastrophe insurance adjuster friends to see if they could come up with either a badly damaged Liberator cat or like. Also, Donzi Classic 20-22ft hulls the same condition up to stolen stripped or burned-out ...

BEEN A LONG TIME thinking of building another

jacquesmm, shine, and others... I have missed my old OB15 and the freedom it gave. I have really been thinking about building another boat but the model selection this time really has me stumped so have my physical requirements. I really needed to sell my OB15 because it was really uncomfortable to ...

Re: Teak

Thanks for the repsonse ks8. I'm planning to use a mold to bend the wood and not the boat and I'm going to make the radius of the mold slighty tighter. However, I'm trying to avoid using screws. So, submergeing the wood in a pot of boiling water would be problem :?: Thanks That being the case I wou...
