Re: Twin skegs

I only have experience with one boat that has a delta pad so keep that in mind as I say this. My 22 foot boat was designed with a pad so it would preform with lesser hp I think. When I changed the inboard out for a more powerful outboard problems showed up. Before the boat topped out mid 20s. Now it...

Re: ST21 Hybrid Powered "SKINNYDIP" Noosa Australia

While I very happy you have the tranny problems in back of you I do wonder how much performance you are giving up with the slower turning prop. I know the normal answer would be to use a larger prop with more pitch but I do not believe those options are available to you on this build :doh: On a side...

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

Not sure I can help with the looks of the cabin, far from my wheel house. To me due to the nature of multi hulls it is hard to get a really good looking cabin on one. It might just be me but I have never seen one that spoke to me. But putting looks aside you sure do get lots of nice cabin space and ...

Re: 2020 Southeastern Boat Builders Meet

I updated the meet year in the title box. 8) I’m good with July 10th-11th or August 14th-15th. We are going to be yellowfin tuna fishing in Louisiana toward the latter part of August so that time is out for me. I sure hope Fuzz signs up. :wink: If he thinks October is warm down here I can’t wait ti...

Re: Sorin's DE23

Great flip but I do have one question. Why did you not finish the bottom before flipping? Are you going to flip it again or will you have a lot of overhead work?

Re: Long Skinny Vessel

Displacement speed for boats is a product of waterline length. The longer it is the faster it will go at displacement speed. 1.34 times the square root of the waterline length. Long and skinny, within reason, will be faster. As for seaworthiness long and skinny makes some of the best boats ever buil...

Re: LM 18 or FS18 for first build

Wow, from everything I've read I didn't know they made provisions for sailing rigs. I'm a big sailor and have been racing since I was 8 or so. Been to a lot of cool places but never Cape Horn. Thanks guys, hoping to get a lot of this figured out now so I'm not stuck waiting like I said. I think Cap...

Re: Decked low sheer Garvey with tunnel

I guess I read what JM said a little different. The GF18 has the structure to support a tunnel where the GF16 does not. The GF scaled down 10% would still be much wider than a GF16. Because it is wider it "might" still work with a tunnel. Lots of boats have tunnels is true. But in all cases a tunnel...

I bet you can hardly wait to give her a try. It will be interesting to see how she runs with that motor.

Re: Boat building shed

Eric you are absolutely correct in that in depends on your budget and future plans for the building. Location and weather make a huge difference also. I was trying to point out that at times we let our wants and our needs get confused. For my needs I built a shop that is too big. One of many things ...
