Dr. Pete, I remember ya. I saw you and Dougster working hard at the boat building tent on Sunday. I didn't want to interrupt.

The Tina is going to make a great boat. Definitely lighter and faster that the original boat. It would be a fun build too.

I designed her with a diesel 6 cylinder 200 to 240 HP depending on the marinization. The plans show a Toyota block available as Yanmar or Nanni diesel.
A Yanmar 4 turbo would work too or a Cummins, same engine beds.
I love this design! Please let us know when plans will be available. I really like the inboards :D

Possible stupid question for Jacques... Given that the hull weight using the more modern material is almost certain to be lighter than the original construction, does that need to be compensated for in some way (such as using a heavier powerplant, carrying more fuel/batteries, etc) so the boat will trim and handle correctly? Or is it not a big enough difference to matter in the grand scheme of things once the boat is fully fitted out?

The outboard version is complete.
There is no engine box and that frees the middle of the cockpit but we loose some room to the splahswell.
The splashwell looks large because it is designed for max. 250 HP, the length is an industry standard. If we make it shorter, some engines will not be able to tilt all the way up.
It does not have the skeg of the inboard but if it was my boat, I would have a small skeg about 1" square. I"ll show it on the plans.
The side console is part of the character of the boat.
I should show some fishing chairs in that cockpit.

The hull lines are within 1/2" of the original. It has some tumblehome in the sides at the stern but the boat can also be built with straight sides there.
The small posts supporting the end of the roof are optional. They don't exist on the original boat but, if we have a handrail along the rear edge of the roof, it could break when jumping a wave with two big guys hanging on there. We could use carbon and forget about the posts but that's not the style of the boat.

The new version is a little lighter. The builder can compensate with more gear or use a small amount of ballast. I started with several 100's lbs difference but increased scantlings and assuming that that cockpit will be filled with "stuff", only a little bit of trim ballast will be needed.
