The CS 23/25 is an awesome looking boat, but I'm not sure it was what was being reffered to in the previous post. They seem more like a serious offshore boat. The CS design would be INCREDIBLE in a 27-30' design. :D

I have a feeling what was being referred to was things like:
the 1969-1978 Aquasport 222
the Early 70's Mako 22 or 23
or

All have lower freeboard and are more acclimated to bay fishing with a little bit of off shore capability.

14 Feet Outboard Powered Stitch And Glue Catamaran

Post by anonymous » Thu Nov 17, 2005 4:32 pm

Catamarans do have some unique qualities including great stability and a relatively more deckspace compared to same length monohulls. Glen-l offers 3 catamaran designs, the Jetcat, Hellcat and Aquacat (lengths 14, 16 and 18 feet respectively). These designs are built by the plywood on frames method.

Without success I have been searching the internet for similar catamaran designs meant to be built by the stitc'n'glue method. In fact the previously mentioned designs are the only small outboard catamarans designs I have been able to find. :doh:

I would like Bateau.com to offer 14, 16, and 18 feet outboard powered catamarans designed to be built by the stitc'n'glue method. :idea:

Best regards,

I second that! Only I would like to see a little bit bigger one, 25ish. Just so there is a cabin and gallery. With the stitch and glue construction.

Great site!

I really like the styling of the CS 23/25 and would like to see plans for the same boat in the 18 - 20' range. As the previous question was posed, I would like a boat for inshore with some near shore use with the flared bow and tumblehome transom. I would also like a closed transom with bracket for outboard.

Any future plans for the CS23 style with more bow flair? Something that could be cold molded? And an option for a small diesel inboard? Could this plan be scaled down to 21-22 ft? If I wanted a plan like this how would I go about getting it? Thanks, great site.

If you pay for the development of the plan, we'll start it right away. Our cots to develop a new plan in that size is US $ 3,000.00.
BTW, it will not be cold molded but sheated strip orm foam sandwich can be considered.

A less expensive solution is to add the flare yourself, it is easy.
We show how to create a moderate flare, it's just a matter of increasing it.

new boat plans

Post by anonymous » Mon Jan 16, 2006 3:50 pm

I would be very interested in a flats/bayboat that is a marriage of your Carolina Sportfish design and your Phantom line up. I live and fish in Eastern NC in the Pamlico Sound and its tributaries for trout, drum, tarpon, etc and while I woule love to build a phantom for shallow water use, I do not feel that I would be comfortable crossing the rough bodies of water that I must cross with that but--a larger boat with a big bow is more favorable--but once I get to where the fish are---a big boat is a pain and is not the best tool. I am thinking of a carolina styled flats/bay boat in the 18-20ft range with a low deadrise aft section and a sharp fore entry and flared bow and dropped shearline along the lines of the bayshore boats built in wilmington w/o the heart stopping price tag. I have spent the past couple of days trying to figure out if I could modify the phantom to fit my idea in stitch and glue. Just an idea of what I am looking for.

Flat bottom Duck Skiff for the MUD.

Post by edaskew » Wed Jan 18, 2006 8:04 pm

Jacques,
Saw your invitation to post a question about needed designs for new duckboats on duckboats.net

http://www.duckboats.net/forum/messages/47809.html

South Louisianians are big duckhunters but we can't use a V-bottom boat, even a shallow V. We hunt in mud, or at least run through pure mud getting to the pond. I love those boats just like your duckskiff 15, and designed and built my own boat (which I think is a nice shape, but, it's an amateurish heavy overbuilt boat) that incorporates some of the features of that sort of hull, but is flat bottommed. I copied the bottom profile of the IR skiff. It works very well for me, and when I pull into a gas station or boat launch down in Cajun country I often draw a crowd. I keep getting asked if I have plans for sale. We need a flat bottomed decked boat capable of handling a 200lb 25hp (18hp at the prop) mudmotor on the transom, that's fast (we go a long way) and light. The Gator duckhunter (gatorboats.com) almost does the trick, but it doesn't plane well. Modified versions, where the width of the bottom of the boat is the same at amidships as it is at the transom, have worked well for some. We hunt protected waters. I'm not building another one myself, but I know there's a lot of interest out there from my gas station and boat launch experiences. Check out my boat:

I will look at that Gator boat. We will design more duck boats.
