Re: transom vs. well mounted

I appreciate the input from both of you. I was pretty well set on going with transom but did not know much about the "well set-up". Evidently it was designed for shallow water and beach launching. Yes, fishing the Great Lakes some but also big lakes in instate Michigan (plus a few rivers probably) T...

transom vs. well mounted

looking at the Little Hunk for fishing in the Great Lakes area. What is the advantage, if any, of a outboard mounted on the transom or in a well.

thanks

Re: stitch and glue vs "ordinary" method

Thanks for the reply; Yes, I am really leaning toward the Chinook. My real question is what is the difference between stitch & glue and building the conventional method. The 2 boats mentioned seem to be fairly similar but why the different building method(s)?

stitch and glue vs "ordinary" method

I am looking at 2 boats; CS-20 outboard cruiser and the Chinook 19' 201/2'. CS-20 is stitch/glue, Chinook is "ordinary" or conventional build. Almost identical style boats, why the different build methods? What is the advantage of one over the other, if there is an advantage.

Thanks,
Ron

catarman power

regarding the Wildcat EXT catamaran; any advantage to twin engines as opposed to single? question is regarding performance other than safety factor of if one fails you have the other.

Thank you

kokanee

has anyone built the KOKANEE (20 1/2') if so any pictures?

KINGFISHER, KOKANEE, and the La PAZ seem to be the same design, just different size(s)(?)

Thanks

Re: Hello from L.A.

I wish I could make it but it is pretty short notice. Do they hold these every year? sounds like a good time.

next year for sure if you have one!

Re: material

I just received my study plans for the CHINOOK. I can't answer your question but glad to hear someone else is thinking along the same lines as I am. It looks like it will make a good fishing boat.


Good Luck

Hello from L.A.

in this case L.A. is "Lower Alabama"; small town of Wilmer just west of Mobile. Plan on building the CHINOOK power boat, it looks like a good fishing boat for the Gulf. Look forward to getting to know you in the future.

Good Luck to ALL,

RAS
