duckboat 2

In the plans for the duckboat it calls for 1/2"x4" lumber for the mid form and bow form and i was wondering if i could just cut the entire section out of 1/2" ply (or 2 x 1/2" sections laminated together as im not too worried about weight as id rather it be stronger) would there be a problem in doin...

Re: Split PVC Pipe for Rub-rail? Expansion?

your probably best off getting the smallest "D" rubber you can find and using that as it will be the best wearing of anything out there (apart from the alloy)and it is so easy to install

Re: Hydrostatic drives

i have seen this system used on a 60' twin hull prawn trawler here in australia but they had a dirty great big "CAT" diesel powering the system but it was set up pretty much as you have said

so yes is can work but it was on a boat that only did a top speed of about 10 kts

Re: Rebel tug engine placement

any chance of some progress pics and as i said a couple of live wells on the back would help with the weight distribution as they wont get lighter as you go as they will be always full of water (and plenty of fish)

Re: Rebel tug engine placement

would it be possible to have some ballast in the rear to counter balance the weight being moved forward for example a couple of live wells (who doesnt have water in a live well when they are fishing) or some lead placed at the transom to offset the weight transfer (i know we're talking a couple of h...

Re: stitch and glue plans for inboard semi-displacement hull

i used to work on prawn trawlers and that was a 64' 100t boat and it was full displacement and we regularly did 13 knots in it and 13 knots on a planing hull is just above planing speeso why do semi displacement game fishing boats do 20-25 knots
