* The affordable fuel economy is amazing. Most boats in my area are at 1.5 gallons a mile, the Panga is at 4.6.
Is that miles to the gallon? Just making sure I'm not seeing something backwards there.

Fantastic - amazing fuel economy!

When you get a chance would love to see what speeds you get at different rpms!

Beautiful boat! Your "final thoughts" summary is great for potential builders too!

Do you have an open bilge? (ie. no foam)

If so, you may want to consider adding drains in order to keep a dry cockpit. Many people drain into the bilge. As an alternative, you could build collection boxes under the floor so that the water doesn't drain directly into the bilge. Or you could direct connect drains to pumps. When the water starts to collect, turn on the pump(s). Either way, there is no need to be standing in water.

I put together a YouTube video of the build if you would like to see a time lapse slide show. I can't say enough about the help of this forum and the folks at boatbuilder central. I wouldn't be enjoying my finished boat without their help! Follow me on Instagram @boatdays

The catch! A 48 pound halibut, my personal best.

I built my own Yeti from a video here on the forum. I spell it Y-diy.
