Re: Ski king build Tasmania, Australia.

Well its been a few years since I laid the keel. Much swearing and changes of plans later, tonight I made the big step of winching her onto the trailer for the first time. Update/info: Bottom of the hull is 6mm ply with dynel cloth over the top. Sides are 3mm ply with 10mm King Billy pine strip plan...

Re: Ski king build Tasmania, Australia.

Yeah I have used a bit of a hybrid of both to be honest.

As long as it has enough power. 27ft is a pretty big boat so you will need a lot of power of do it easily. Eg twin 350 chev. Size of the wake is the other limiting factor. Big w...

Both specialty Tasmanian timber. Historically used for boat building, but now getting harder to find. The bottom will be...
