Can't wait till you find a motor for it - looking forward to seeing some pic's in action and some performance figures...

What a great looking little boat!
Wish I was closer as I have a 10hp Mercury 4-stroke you could try. I would love to ride around in that thing! Something fun and special about a nicely done skiff.

A very pretty boat. At one time here I read something about not using dark colors in southern hot areas do to heating up the epoxy. Any comments on that beautiful green. Also, how did you apply it.

Roll and tip, and yes that boat will get hot if left in the direct sun. This boat will probably spend most of its life in our warehouse as showcase for products

Ah, an answer to my lingering question. Sigh
, no dark green for me here in South Texas. More lingering is my question about the graphite bottom: I like it and would do it straight off. But what about the heat? Don't say it's the bottom, my Nina will live in the trailer in the hot Texas sun, where it's still dark in august at 8:00 pm. Hot too, and the sun is down low, bangin on the side of the boat. Not for long, though, and I'm hoping it's ok. Any thoughts or better yet, experience?
Likin' the looks of that bottom Dougster

Same with me. I've always liked that color, but it's just not practical. Might do it anyway

My question on the graphite bottom in tropical sun lingers. SpoKaloo has broached it too. Sittin' on a trailer, sun overhead, no problem. Afternoon sun bangin' on the chine....problem?
Thinkin' somebody knows Dougster
