I'd like to know if the bottom transom could be flattened at the back and use short foots if using outboards or would it mess up the ...

If anyone happens to know of a team/driver that runs Factory I offshore, let me know.

Before building a Bandido, I'd like to ask a...

C-Flex, S-Glass, High-Tech versions

I just got my study plans for the Bandido and have a question regarding fiberglassing. On the fiberglass version, do you still plank the boat with a cold-mold, then apply the fiberglass. I understand fiberglass molds, but it seems that the plans describe a mess that once it's soaked and dried, it be...

Re: New from Macon Georgia. Want-a-be Gentry builder.

I place a new topic for info on the Bandido also. Dave, I just emailed you regarding the Sept. 16th event. We can make that trip. I've read so much of this forum, I'm going to get fired!

:D New member: Chris Brooks, Macon Ga. I just bought the Bandido study plans and need to get a user group of members that have built, or in the process of building this boat. I’ve been looking at Scott Ure photo’s and I can’t find his member name to send questions thru the forum, but If you know his...

New from Macon Georgia. Want-a-be Gentry builder.

Hello all. I'm ordering the Gentry is a few weeks. I'm handy with wood work but not proficient. I have a lot to learn with terms, reading plans, etc. Any advise, I would greatly appreciate it. Beleive it or not, I built my 50 x 38 shop just for the purpose of building a boat! Hope I can pull it off....
