Re: Possible Ponton Builder!

Welcome Aboard,

I am building a 16' tri-toon, still need to finish the deck. :oops: Rod is correct the one set of Huck Finn plans cover 12' thru 28'. The only difference is the number of bulkheads and there spacing in 2 feet increments, so a 14 footer is included. Good luck and keep us posted.

Re: Huck Finn motor well and deflector

Since the outboard is mounted between the pontoons the deflector directs the flow of water to the prop, just like a transom. I don't know if it's really needed. I remember from the plans it is complicated. Since I built a tri-toon I didn't need one. :D

Re: A TNT HAS A NEW HOME

Finally, splashed her. She is amazing staple and she will really run with the ole 25 evinrude. I think finishing the boat as a utility will work great for us. :D

I also screwed my building form to my saw horses, then I attached two 2x4's to the bottom cross members of the saw horses.

Good luck James,

It was a pleasure to talk to you tonight. Oh, and to answer one more of your questions. Some smaller outboards can be converted to remote with an adaptor kit. You will still need a control box, cables and the same for steering.

Re: Second coat of fillet?

First check the plans and see if that's not 4" tape over the fillet instead of a 4" fillet. That is a big fillet. You can go over the first coat. Just rough it up with sandpaper first.

Re: Huck Finn 20. Bulkheads B and Transom continued

I used Okoume. Treat the insides with something no matter what plywood you use. Price out how much an extra layer of cloth and epoxy will cost. :wink:
