Re: Gooday from Queensland the sunshine state of Australia

Hi Reid - Any updates on this HUGELY interesting build? What a monster of a boat for a home build! Like many others, I'm a big fan of Gung Ho (and cruisers in general) and excited to see a build thread on the forum. Cheers, Doug

Re: Overniter in SC

FWIW - Here's what one Glen L builder (of a Flying Saucer) did to address the same issue: "Boat is glassed. I used 17 oz. bi-axial glass on the bottom for abrasion resistance. The boat will be run up on gravel and sand quite frequently. I did the bottom in two sheets of glass overlapped 8 inche...

Re: New Member from Orlando Florida

Many people have hulls built by professionals and then finish off the rest of the boat themselves. There is no 'right' way to go about it - only what is right for you and your family! If the Boat Gods decide to shine a little light on me one of these days, I will be choosing between a smaller Glen L...

Re: Time to come out of the closet, True Grit

Your project is inspiring and extremely creative and original. Hopefully, you will enjoy this boat for many years. Do I have this right: The boat has been extended to 29.5' plus an additional 2' for the swim step, making a total of 31.5'? Or, the boat is a total of 29.5' in length including the swim...

Re: Right classic design for Chesapeake Bay

Check out Kona Kai for an interesting option. It has a deep-v hull, has been built as a runabout with stunning results (follow the photos), and also has the gorgeous arching sheerline that many builders of classic boats are looking for. With a little creativity and the right exterior finish, it coul...

Re: Leme rephrase my question. by Newbe-CS-20

I have to admit, I like CS 20 too! It looks like a terrific boat. One good build could open the floodgates! Does CS 20 also have more deadrise than Cabin Skiff? One is rated for up to 40 hp; the other for up to 175 hp. Surely they are VERY different boats despite being similar in looks and concept?

This much is certain- If you can successfully build your Zip as you've rendered it, it will be gorgeous! Great looking take on the Zip!

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

FWIW- In my view, the upper fin on the hatch looks just right and perfectly complements the other design elements back there. Simply a brilliant piece of work overall and a true inspiration. Cheers!

Re: Time to come out of the closet, True Grit

Curt- Your boat is so interesting, innovative and great looking that I, for one, would love to see more photos! I'd guess that others would, too. I'd be really interested in how you're going to power her, as well. Once again, an amazing build. Good luck with it! Doug

Re: I/O weight for Double Eagle angle True Grit

Is it possible that a 10% hull extension would provide some extra buoyancy aft to help support the weight of a sterndrive power plant? Just a thought FWIW. Cheers and good luck.

Re: New squirt build

You might also consider Flying Saucer. It is exactly 12' and has a little more beam than Squirt, which might be handy. Good luck whatever you do.

Re: Dick Williams Belle Isle Update and Launch ... October

MAGNIFICENT!!! At first I couldn't decide whether your creation is a boat or a work of art, and then I realized it is both! Beyond stunning.
