Monsoon Utility Runabout

Hello Everyone, I was wondering if you could take the Monsoon and make it a utility runabout / Ski Boat. I am looking to take off the top, close off the bow and possibly even put the engine in the rear attached to a V-drive. I would like to put a big block Chevy in there. Thank you in advance for yo...

Re: The Epiphany

I think you have a great idea and hope it works.
Do you have any suggestions for someone without an existing bout to use for the bottom?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Large Mahogany Runabout

Hello All. I have been trying to find plans that fit my need and am struggling a bit. I am after a beamy mahogany boat. I real like the tahoe but ultimately want a rear mounted v-drive to maximize interior space. I have started to look at the outboad optional and modify to a vdrive inboard, as this ...

23' Tahoe Larger Beam

Hello All, I am planning a 23' Tahoe build but am going to stretch it to 24'-6". I am also looking to get a larger beam out of the boat and less taper in the back. Here are my thoughts: Size everything up about 17.5% as did Bill in his Tahoe build. Take frame number 5 and make that the plan for fram...

Monte Tahoe

Hello all, I was going to build a 23' Tahoe and stretch it like Butche's and hopefully with some guidance from Bill Y will put a v-drive rear engine in. After looking at the Tahoe I realized I wanted something with a wider beam. So I decided to purchase the Monte Carlo plans. I am going to try to bu...

Re: Rear Engine 23' Mahgonoy

I ordered the 23' Tahoe plans. I am going to try to build it to 24'-6" as Butch Barto did. I will attempt to build out the rear beam a little wider to accommodate the v-drive engine. Thank you again for all your suggestions. With some luck it will turn out like this with the rear cockpit and engine ...

Re: Rear Engine 23' Mahgonoy

Thank you all for the suggestions.
I will continue to look at all possibilities.
If anybody comes across a plan they feel will fit what I am tiring to do with minimal mods please post.

Thank you again.

Re: Rear Engine 23' Mahgonoy

Thank you for your thoughts.
I am looking for a style that would allow for a inboard v-drive, rather than and I/O.

Rear Engine 23' Mahgonoy

I am a first time builder and looking to duplicate a boat my grandfater had. I would be looking somewhere between a 23-24' boat but with a rear engine inboard or v-drive. His boat was a Streblow. The boat has a wider transform, not like a barrelback. I have attached a couple links of boats I am trin...
